Stone Restoration Pads for Marble, Travertine, Limestone & Terrazzo

Check out this floor of the Historic Fox Theater in downtown Detroit, MI across from Tiger Stadium…

This b beautiful full restoration that was done by Gregg Laviolette’s team at Stone Restoration Service’s Detroit location.

This multi-stone installation had years of wax buildup and significant lippage. Gregg’s team used metal diamonds to grind it perfectly flat. Then they proceeded to use our Cheetah System Step 1-4.

There was a variety of equipment and configurations used on this job. They ran a planetary machine with 6″ heads and centered our 5″ Cheetah Pads (flat’s) on each head with great success, as well as using traditional 175 RPM swing machines with our 5″ Cheetah Pucks and weighted drive plates

Nice job SRS Team and thanks for sharing!

Let’s take a look at this next floor…
How about this newly poured terrazzo…

This was a newly installed resin based terrazzo that was finished up to an 800 grit traditional diamond by the installation company. The maintenance supervisor did not want to put coatings or wax finishes on this new floor.

The in-house staff (with no restoration experience) completed the job with our weighted drive plates, our step 3 and 4 Cheetah Pucks, 11,000 grit Monkey Pads, and Nano Guard. They created a beautiful finish and a much easier and cost effective ongoing maintenance program.

You can achieve amazing results while saving over 50% in labor/steps over traditional restoration methods… and time is money! Are you using our system yet…?

Awaken Your Senses with Steam

Awaken Your Senses with Steam

Serene Steam Shower System

Buy Now at www.flooringsupplyshop.com

Almost anyone who has ever taken a regular shower knows that the warmth and soothing rhythm of the water can provide great stress relief. When it comes to steam showers, you can enjoy those familiar benefits as well as a number of others.

A steam shower provides wet heat that can open your pores, causing you to sweat and helping your body to release toxins. If that was the only potential benefit, it might be enough. But a steam shower may also help your circulation, open up your sinus passages, assist you with weight loss and offer you the opportunity to relax your thoughts as well as your body.

You may have enjoyed these kinds of benefits in a sauna at a spa, but with the Serene Steam shower, you can now enjoy them in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Although it’s a luxurious product, its simplicity of design and ease of installation may surprise you. The stainless steel shower system comes boxed and ready to install by your plumber or contractor. It requires no hook-up to electricity.

Serene Steam Shower System

Showerheads and Audio System

Serene Steam is a shower system that includes a rainfall shower head and a Bluetooth audio system in addition to its steam function. Its large showerhead, either round or rectangular depending on the model, can be angled to regulate water flow the way you want it. There is also a back and shoulder shower head which can be swiveled to the angle that works best. This shower head directs a high pressure flow of water to areas of your body that often hold tension, your shoulders and upper back. Water can also be diverted to a hand held shower head.

The sound system is one of the most interesting features, providing you with the chance to enjoy lovely music while you relax in the steam. The waterproof Bluetooth sound system is placed in a semi-flush position inside the shower unit. It uses a lithium ion battery which should never need to be replaced. The speaker system is docked in such a way that it’s removable, so you can take it out when you need to recharge it. A cable and charger come with the system. The system manual, which can be printed from the company’s website, details the speaker system and how it can be removed and replaced. The manual also provides instructions for connecting the speaker system to a Bluetooth enabled portable device.

Serene Steam Shower System

Steam Control and Aromatherapy

The highlight of the Serene Steam shower is its steam control dial, which can be easily turned to an open or close position to release steam. Once you’ve reached the steam level you desire, usually within about five minutes, you can turn the function to a halfway “cruise” mode to complete the steam experience. Steam will be released from the main vent, raising the temperature to a comfortable warmth.

You can also utilize the system’s aromatherapy feature to enjoy a relaxing scent with your steam. A few drops of essential oil are placed in the proper opening so scent will be delivered with the steam. Per warranty, only official fragrances like Eucalyptus Fusion and Harmony Aroma, from approved vendors such as Flooring Supply Store can be used in the system in order to avoid any potential problems.

The Serene Steam shower system delivers a relaxing shower and steam experience. Its modern design, relatively easy installation and enhanced features such as Bluetooth audio and aromatherapy make it a luxurious investment. However, it’s also an eco-friendly system as steam generally only uses about half the water volume of regular showers so you’ll save both energy and water.

For those of us who live such fast paced lives that we can hardly catch up, let alone treat ourselves to some much needed pampering, a steam shower is a perfect option. It turns even the most mundane of tasks into a spa like experience that will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed.

How to Properly Budget and plan your Home Improvement Projects

How to Properly Budget and plan your Home Improvement Projects

Now that 2014 has started, many Los Angeles homeowners are getting their budgets together and making plans for the New Year. For many people the improved economy means that they can finally tackle some of the big home improvement projects they might have had to put off previously.

One of the biggest home improvements you can make which can reap surprisingly dramatic results is replacing your flooring. Try to imagine that old carpeting in the dining room replaced with beautiful, hardwood floors. The whole room could be completely transformed, and the value of your home will no doubt increase. It also helps that new technology and innovations have increased flooring options by the tenfold in the last few years. Just looking at Flooring Supply Shop’s options can show you just how many new options you have.

Flooring Supply Shop

Another thing you may noticed while shopping around is the number of   environmentally friendly options you have. It’s not news that there is a rapidly increasing focus on bringing sustainable materials into every facet of consumer lives, and flooring is no exception to the trend. Unlike a few years ago, there are a huge number of options today.

One option you have if you’re looking to replace some marble in your home, is to actually not replace it at all! If you haven’t heard about our Restoration Training and Cheetah Pads, just let the results speak for themselves. What could be more environmentally friendly than buffing your way to a completely new floor?

However, if you’re searching for a new look in your home that is also Eco-friendly, one of the biggest trends right now is concrete. Yes, you heard that correctly, concrete. This concrete isn’t the boring sidewalk slabs you’re imagining, since the innovations that have been made with concrete are astounding. It can be molded to fit any area, can be dyed or stained to any color, polished until it gives you a high shine look, and – barring any catastrophic events – would never need to be replaced.

 

While concrete is great, one of the newest, coolest, and most environmentally friendly options on the market right now is glass tiles. Eco-friendly glass tiles are made of recycled glass products (like beer bottles) which are then converted into beautiful tiles. It’s really incredible how a bunch of old wine bottles can be transformed into some truly unique flooring. On top of being an environmentally friendly flooring option, many people are using it on the walls of their home or as back-splashes in their kitchen thanks to its light reflecting properties. As an added bonus the tiles are easy to maintain and you won’t have to worry about staining as you would with many traditional types of tiles.

It seems counter intuitive to assume that hardwood floors are eco-friendly, right? Chopping down trees can’t be good for the environment. However, thanks to new advancements you can get hardwood floors without so much as knocking a leaf off of a tree due to engineered hardwood floors. In the past engineered hardwood got a bad rap thanks to it’s less than conventional look, but like every other flooring material out there a few years of time and testing has resulted in a more aesthetic appearance. In addition to being environmentally friendly, it’s usually significantly cheaper than traditional hardwood, sometimes as much as $3 a plank cheaper. They’re also much easier to install than their traditional counterparts.

When making plans for major home renovations it’s easy to get lost in the details and forget about the environmental impact your choices may have. However, it is our responsibility to do our best to use sustainable, eco-friendly products as often as we can, and that includes our flooring. Thanks to the incredible advancements in technology, Eco-friendly floor options are cost effective and very aesthetically pleasing, sometimes more so than non-green options. Just take a look around at some of Flooring Supply Shop’s environmentally friendly options and you can see just how far we’ve come in terms of green flooring options.
