Slate floors are common place across the South West and Cornwall and it has been a traditional building material for hundreds of years. Due to its durability and local availability it is used in bathrooms, wet rooms, kitchens as well as in pubs and restaurants. There are many different types of slate and although it can be found locally it is imported into the UK from all over the world. Chinese and Brazilian slate are just 2 examples. Slate can also have a variety of finishes from honed to polished.
It is important to preserve your slate floor with a sealer to protect the floor against oil and water based stains. It will also help with the day to day maintenance for the slate and with the build up of soils. It will add longevity to your slate floor and keep it looking amazing for years to come.
