Landford Stone is a leading supplier and installer of stone flooring surfaces for domestic and commercial applications in the South of England.
Limestone is a sedimentary rock and geologically very varied. The Limestones are classified into groups with the four main ones being Micrite, Sparite, non Skeletal Grains and Fossils. The presence of fossils in many limestones is aesthetically pleasing, indicating that the rock was originally formed under the ocean some 54 million years ago.
Marble is thermal metamorphism of calcite and other minerals, crystallised through the action of heat and pressure to produce a beautiful dense hard material with a wide range of colours, patterns and veining.
Granite is used to broadly describe a type of igneous rock formed where molten magma, under extreme pressure deep within the earth͛s crust, slowly cools and solidifies. This formation process makes granite the dense and complex material that it is.
Landford Stone and Ca͛ Pietra are committed to:
- Sourcing the best quality, best value floor and wall materials in the world – whether this is natural stone or man-made materials such as encaustic tiles, high-quality porcelain and mosaics.
- Making the products available so that you can buy them locally and speak face-to-face with a specialist.
- Being available to offer technical advice.
Varying mineral elements such as quartz and feldspar, present within the cooling magma, give different granite deposits their diverse colour ranges, patterning and lustre.
Porcelain tiles are ceramic tiles with a water absorption rate of less than 0.5 percent that are used to cover floors and walls. They can either be unglazed or glazed. The dense, hard surface of porcelain has made polishing a viable alternative to a glazed surface. This means that a tile can be fired, then a polish cut into the surface, creating a shine without a glaze.
These beautiful stones are available in a variety of colours and finishes. Landford Stone is able to provide a one stop service, as we now have, as part of our highly professional workforce, a fully qualified contracts department, providing a stone floor laying service with over twenty years experience. The flooring director and his team have laid flooring and tiling in both domestic and commercial venues.
