Sandstone Honing Canberra
StoneMaster® can remove dull areas from sandstone surfaces and create beautiful soft, matte and velvety smooth finishes with little or no gloss that is often more suited to casual, comfortable environments than a more formal polished surface.
More and more households and businesses these days are having their sandstone surfaces honed, by which a shiny or polished sandstone surface is customised into a beautifully smooth, low sheen matte finish, leaving the surfaces looking elegant and in their most beautiful natural state.
Honing is achieved by polishing the surface with an abrasive wheel, but not long enough to create the glossiness of a typical polished tile. Honing creates a look for your sandstone that is low key and not too overwhelming as some people can find with highly polished, glossy sandstone flooring.
Honing your sandstone floors is a fantastic way to virtually eliminate taxing maintenance requirements while still having the wonderful characteristic of beautiful stone surfaces in the home.

Honed surfaces look fantastic, but special care is required as they can be less resilient to damage. Sandstone is quite a delicate variety of stone that is porous and quite susceptible to scratches, stains and fracturing, meaning they can damage easily when handled incorrectly. Honed natural stone can becomes quickly etched, or corroded by acidic materials upon contact by common household substances such as soft drink, tea, citrus juice and acidic cleaning products.
A surface with a matte or honed finish needs to be as a rule, periodically cleaned and re-sealed by a professional and should ideally be sealed with a deep penetrating, impregnating sealer, which avoids staining and reduces the effect of soiling. One of the most popular products on the market and preferred sealer is Australian made Deepshield® quality impregnating water based sealer's that prolong the life of your surfaces by taking full advantage of recent advancements in technology to provide unmatched long-term stain resistance and reliability.
