Stone Floor laid in Waddington Farmhouse

reclaimed stone floor

Smooth foot worn flagstones were calibrated to a uniform thickness of approximately 35 mm to be used with an underfloor heating system.  The flagstones used for this floor hinted towards buff in colour.  Prior to delivery the flagstones were coursed, in rows of equal widths and random lengths, to a room plan.  This process increased efficiency and reduced cost in laying the stone floor.

The flagstone used for the step (above) was particularly worn and looks as though it could be original to the property, along with the stone floor.

The photo above shows the flags laid in another area of the house, prior to being sealed. We always recommend using a good sealer on the stone, there are various types available including matt sealers that don’t change the appearance of the stone.  We also supplied a number of reclaimed oak beams, including the beam used for a fireplace mantle below:

Reclaimed Yorkstone Floor laid in pub, The Dressers Arms, dating back to the 1700s

We specialise in the supply of  bespoke Reclaimed Yorkstone floors and were excited to be working with a well-loved local pub.  Flagstones were supplied in a mixture of buff and grey colours.  The Yorkstone floor was coursed to plan eliminating the need for wastage.  Course widths started at 12” wide and went up to 36” wide.  Prior to supply each flagstone was calibrated to a uniform thickness of 35mm and specially cleaned for interior use.  Once laid a sealer was applied to protect and enhance the stone.  There are lots of different types of stone sealers available for sale, here ‘Nexus pro-410‘ solvent based colour enhancing sealer was used.

Following the recent sale of the pub to Jack, owner of the adjacent Chinese restaurant ‘Little Hong Kong’, the pub underwent some renovation work.  The bar area was extended and we were asked to supply some extra stone flags.  We often don’t get the chance to see finished floors so it was great to view the stone after a years’ worth of foot traffic and beer swill.  The pub has a great selection of real ales and we highly recommend the famous Dresser’s Steak Pudding!

We also had the opportunity to take some photos of the Reclaimed Oak Beams which we had supplied a year earlier.  The Beams were cleaned and hand finished in beeswax.  Here they are in our yard prior to being delivered

Reclaimed Farmhouse Walling Stone used for Riverside Oxon Property

Reclaimed Farmhouse walling

We ship Reclaimed Building Materials all over the country, which means that we don’t always get to see the finished results. Some people have been kind enough to provide us with photographic illustrations of what they have achieved, however, and after several months of stone deliveries, this is what one customer had to show us.

Extra 003
Reclaimed Walling Stone from Ribble Reclamation was used to build steps leading down to the water’s edge. It was also used for garden walls at the back of the property

We always have a great selection of Reclaimed Yorkstone Flags in store, and when this particular job took place we had a batch of slabs which were notably substantial in size.  Each Yorkstone Flag was cut into three pieces, and these three pieces were used to form two steps with beautifully weathered edges and a riser. The cutting work was carried out by our experienced Stone Mason at the Ribble Yard, and highlights the quality that you get when you work with invested and experienced professionals. Finishing the project were the unique, terracotta Pier Caps which can be seen by the water’s edge in the first photograph.

If you have photographs of projects using Reclaimed Building Materials from Ribble Reclamation and you would like to share them, please email us at: info@ribble-reclamation.co.uk

Or alternatively, if you need advice about other methods of getting your photographs to us, please feel free to call us on: 01772 794534
