1

MATERIALS

When installing natural stone, it is crucial that it’s installed using correct materials. Natural stone has a high variance when considering colour, pattern, and shape. The colour variance is unavoidable piece to piece because it’s natural stone.

2

INSTALLATION

Before installing the stone tile, lay out the tile area in the desired pattern. Consider the direction, veining, and colours when choosing your tile lay out. Moving on to the installation, ensure that the proper thinset/mortar is being used. When selecting the thinset, it is important to consider several key factors. These include the size of tile, substrate material, where the tile is being installed and colour of the natural stone. When using a larger format tile, on the wall or ceiling, you’ll need to use a thinset with higher polymer. A higher polymer will help to ensure the tile stays up. When working with light natural stones such as white marbles, you’ll need to use a white thinset. The grey thinset will often bleed through the tile. After the installation, the sealing of the natural stone will take place. Clean the thinset, removing any grout haze, dust or dirt before the required sealing.

3

CLEAN

To clean natural stones, you’re going to ensure it’s as clean as possible at all times. Any dirt or grit on the surface will scratch the surface and wear down the finish quicker. If this happens, your stone installation will need more frequent sealing. To make sure the stone is clean, sweep or vacuum. When required to clean with a damp mop, ensure the mop is clean and use a neutral pH cleaner. Any acid based cleaner or stains will etch the surface.

4

RESEAL

To reseal, clean the surface and strip of the existing sealer before coating the floor again. Natural stones have to be resealed after time. This timeline varies dependant on the type of sealer and traffic that the floor endures.
