Natural Stone, Terrazzo, Marble, Mosaic, & Granite Installation & Repair.
 
           

Brief History of Company.

The company was formed in 1964, and in 2014 we celebrated our 50th Anniversary. We initially worked with the largest Italian terrazzo tile manufacturer in the UK, Quiligotti of Manchester, on contacts throughout the UK and Europe.

Work involved new tile installation, expansion joints, duct covers, amt well frames, in situ non slip ramp areas for disabled, resurfacing, resealing, together with high surface finish diamond polishing.

This work was carried out in shopping malls, supermarkets, food halls, hotels, car show rooms, hospitals, universities, airports, rail stations, bus stations, public office accommodation, together with domestic flooring for details see Stone Tile Care Page.

From that experience, we now have a network of specialist teams working on stone floor installation refurbishment, maintenance and diamond polishing across the UK.

Our skilled work force draw on over 40 years of hands on experience, and are all taught in house.

Specialist natural stone contractors.

Stone floors have a natural beauty, with various colours and veinage within the product and will enhance and increase the value of any premises; commercial, industrial or domestic.

These natural floors have longevity of life with the correct maintenance and cleaning regime - which we can provide. We are aware that damage can result from insufficient information and maintenance.

Domestic stone floor renovation/ installation.

We have become aware, over a number of years, that clients introduce problems into their own home by their choice of tile fixer for the initial floor laying.

We cannot stress too strongly the importance of having a specialist natural stone tile layer for a stone floor. The right contractor is unlikely to be the one submitting the lowest quote. Stone fixers have the skills to lay natural stone floor tiles, which require specific sand, cement and floor grouting, in order to avoid voids within the grout lines.

Preparation and installation must be correct in the first instance, and unfortunately the only time you will know that you have an incorrect fix is when the work has been completed. Signs of this are insufficient grout, joint lines being too narrow, butting up of tiles where grout should be and the surface has been damaged during the installation. Consequently the end product is not what you envisaged. Then you need a specialist like ourselves, to rescue the installation which unfortunately will added cost to the original work.

Skills, techniques and equipment.

Over the last 40 years, we have researched the market extensively for plant, equipment, materials and products to provide the best results.

We use Italian diamonds and Italian machines, which are not the lowest cost, but we find that they produce the highest level of finish to our works.

Stone Floor Care - In House Staff Training.

We train all our staff in-house, to a standard that has been developed through 50 years working within the flooring industry - tile fixing, grouting, regrinding, resealing and diamond polishing. We work with carbon stones, metal bonded diamonds and electro plated, bonded resin diamonds. These materials produce a finer grade, giving a glass like finish to the tile surface. We feel our expertise is a major plus factor in delivering the highest quality of work customer/client base.

The attention to detail devoted to our internal staff training is well rewarded with the level of referral and repeat business we enjoy.

Lawco Flooring - Safety

Working in the building industry, we have CHAS accreditation. We also have PASMA for scaffolding and IPAF for working with booms and scissors. Our staff are also CRB checked, for our work in schools and housing association premises.


National & International Stone Floor Repair Work

F Lawrence & Co undertaken all kinds of natural stone floor tile repair nationally and internationally. Here are some examples of our international stone tile floor repair contracts;

Pharmaceutical Company Floor Repair Contract – Madrid, Spain

We do stone floor repair work for the London base of a very well known pharmaceutical group. The group had acquired a Spanish pharmaceutical company, which was having major problems with a floor in a drug manufacturing plant.

Local flooring contractors had laid the pre-cast tiles, which were not of the same quality as those used in the UK. We began by stone grinding the floor and then applied 3 coats of sealant and did our usual acid text at that stage. The floor required a total of 7 coats to fully seal it to the standard required for the application.

Jersey Airport.

We installed the first phase of the Jersey Airport terrazzo floor in the arrivals and departure lounges. The work involved the complete fix of the floor, total stone grind, seal and polish finish.

We have also worked in Germany, undertaking regrind and seal work in a number of German supermarkets.
