What to Consider with Stone Flooring Installation
To prevent slips, trips and falls in your home, it’s essential to have the most appropriate stone installed. Granite looks gorgeous, but it can be a slipping hazard even when slightly wet, which may make travertine the better choice for your family or business, especially if pets and kids might be running around. Marble is luxurious, but it’s very soft compared to granite, which may make a better countertop choice. Your flooring installation expert should learn your needs and desires inside and out, and work to make those visions a reality that maximizes safety and functionality.
While stone is one of the most impressive types of materials you can use in flooring, backsplashes and more, it’s important to consider that stone installation is much more time-consuming and expensive to install than other types of material. Stone installation also take a certified expert, since not all tile installers are able to install natural stone products.
Compared to porcelain or ceramic tile installation, extra work with natural stone means each stone piece is lifted two to five times before the desired outcome is achieved. Stone flooring and décor installation lasts a lifetime and beyond, but the material can be brittle and may require a specific type of setting material, which is why such tender loving care is required during the décor or flooring installation process.
Once installed, homeowners and business owners will need to maintain the high quality of the stone floors. This requires cleaning and sealing about twice a year or more, depending on your home or business foot traffic. It’s important to keep in mind that the natural stone sealer may change the appearance of stone floors and can bring out certain colors depending on the enhancement type. A high gloss sealer makes floors shinier, while a wet look sealer gives the floors a wet look. No matter what type of sealer is used on stone flooring or stone décor, it always emanates a gorgeous and fancy vibe to enhance the ambiance.
