MACAEL WHITE MARBLE FIREPLACE IN FINISHING POLISHED

Image
In this occasion we manufacture a fireplace in macael white marble and polished finish, from the model provided by the customer of a photo and customizing the measurements according to your requests.

Although the model was very simple, the main difficulty was to adapt the model to the measures provided, since these affected the original proportions of the model. Finally we were able to adapt the fireplace to the model provided, although with somewhat different proportions.

Another aspect to emphasize is that the original model of the photo is a type of limestone or very similar white, while the macael white marble has grained gray characteristics, which in polished finish stand out even more than in a type apomazado finish. However we always try to select blocks of macael white marble, with the least amount of veining possible.

Here we leave some photos of the final result obtained and the comparison with the original model of the photo provided, on which we base for its manufacture:





Cleaning and treatment of outdoor terracotta floor in San Pedro de Alcantara (Marbella)

Image
On this occasion we find an external terracotta floor around a pool, with problems in some areas of saltpeter and especially with wear caused by the use of pressure cleaning machines with water.

As we commented to the customer, we want to emphasize that we do not recommend the use of this type of machines for the cleaning of mud floors, since they work at great pressure that end up to seriously deteriorate the surface of the mud and in many cases reaching to Such a state of wear that the soil becomes sand and is no longer recoverable at all, it being necessary in these extreme cases to replace it.

Luckily in this case the wear was more or less superficial and only in some slabs, so the final result was optimal.

Below we show you pictures of the work done, where we proceeded to first clean the outer terracotta and eradicate the salitres stains, to later apply terracotta treatment to the wet effect.

BUCHINGER CLINIC: RECOVERING TERRACOTTA FLOOR IN DINING ROOM

In this work we find a terracotta floor, which although it had a previous treatment applied, it already suffered from numerous wear and tear; In addition to the existence of several areas with embedded stains and a great number of marches of scratches provoked by the movement of furniture.

The procedure to be followed was firstly to proceed to a process of pickling and thorough cleaning for both the removal of the remains of the old treatment and the removal of embedded stains. The work had to be carried out in two phases so as not to have to interrupt the passage of waiters and customers.

Once the soil was clean and dry we proceeded to apply protective treatment for indoor terracotta floors, with finished gloss effect.
