One of the benefits for private and commercial clients when choosing to work with Mason Stonecraft is the access they gain to detailed expertise, concerning all aspects of the project.
Since we work with these materials every day and in an array of environments and properties there is so much we can bring to the project in terms of added value. Specifically this expertise comes in the form of free advice before and during the progress of the project about the appropriateness of the material selected for its intended use, and considerations regarding fixing patternation and care and maintenance.
We have put together a few initial points below to consider to help guide your project decisions at an early stage. If you would like further direction please use our contact form and we will endeavour to answer any specific questions you may have.
The Importance of Product Selection
Of course its only natural to make product selections which are motivated by aesthetics, and suit the look and feel of your property. Sometimes the client or an advisor such as an architect may specify a material for these reasons. No one wants to compromise the overall effect of the intended design, but how these materials perform for the intended use is a consideration. For example temperature, moisture conditions, and wear could have an impact on how appropriate a material is for an area of the property. We like you have a vested interest in ensuring that your property benefits from an enduring look and impression and this means durability and environment factors should be considered. Sealing or not sealing a surface is also key to preserving the material itself or its integrity over time. So make use of the advice we can bring to your project and sometimes an early conversation can help avoid unwanted changes during your build programme.
Here below are some topics which should be considered before proceeding with your project
- Surface Preparation to create a level and stable base for fixing
- Fixing methods and Adhesives
- Grouting Products and Methods
- Membranes and Sealants
- Loose Laying
- Delivery and Site Storage
- Care and Maintenance
