Floor types

Terrasse en pierre bleue

Bluestone can have many origins but is most often Asian or Belgian. In the case of Belgian bluestone it may also be called little granite or stone of Soignies according to its specific origin.

Marble is without any doubt the most widespread natural stone type used for floors. Under the term marble we understand most limestones that can be crystallized.

Granite can be recognized by the “ crystal grains” well visible to the naked eye. Granite is generally more mechanically resistant and less chemically sensitive than marble. As a result it is significantly more expensive.

Porous stone is often used for both interior and outdoor floors. To fully benefit from these floors they must be protected from stains after installation and need to undergo regular maintenance.

The term ceramic refers to synthetic tiles made from clay at very high temperatures. Ceramic tiles have a very high density and a very high resistance to wear. They are thus regularly used for floor covering.

Granito Terrazzo

Granito terrazzo floors consist of a cement based frame with different types of stones integrated. They are either cast or present in the form of tiles.

Very popular in the semi-mansions in the beginning of this century , the cement tiles can be recovered to their former glory through grinding, stripping and other treatments.

Terracotta is one of the world’s oldest floorings. Terracotta tiles are very porous because of their great natural capillary action. The protection of terracotta can be done with waxes, pore fillers or resins according to the customer’s expectations and the use.

By the experience of working with natural stone, Emotion Pierres can also carry out renovation and protection of most floor types, even synthetic floors.
