Slate Restoration

Slate is a very dense, but soft and easily scratched material with low porosity, slate can be used effectively outdoors as well as indoors.

Slate tiles can look very natural and dull in appearance. In this situation, the slate can be treated with a colour intensifier which will serve to deepen the colour of the stone, enhancing the details on the surface. Cleaning slate tiles is an involved process which requires professional insights.

Slate can be grinded if smooth to remove any scratches and dull appearances; an impregnator is applied followed by a colour intensifier to deepen the natural colour of the stone.

Riven or rough finish Slate can be chemically cleaned then let dry for a few days, before applying an impregnator to prevent water and oil penetration. If desired, a wet finish look can be applied during the slate restoration process.
