Could not get out chemically and had to grind and repolishing whole floor. client is convinced it will even up but I'm not sure

    Sounds great! Unfortunately I've had to visit a small town called Calpe in Spain ( north of Alicante) for the last 25 years! It's grown up considerably over those years and the Euro made it more expensive, but it's sunny and relaxing and a perfect place to retire. That first cup of coffee is the best!

    You will notice that the edges that were exposed are darker than the parts of stone that were covered.you would expect this to be reverse way round.if there were any moisture in stone it would be in the middle sections .put a hair dryer on the stones makes no difference . tried wexa,wax off ,outdoor cleaner and oxy clean crystals but none work.ii have had this before when exposed edges of tiles in a crate are left outside. always seems to happen with grey stones.something to do with oxidation?

    Great response Mark. Its good to have this type of reply from the horse itself! Limestone is a colour I personally prefer in most cases however I stopped using Bal for the exact reason of this thread. Patchy drying. Also it could take 3-4 days for it to fully dry to the right colour. I for one will definitely try your 3000.

    just started a new job with a mandarin stone 500x random . cant remember the name . Darren ( freeze) do you recognise this one.Ive been put on their recommended list for weybridge!!! stone beautifully cut square and even thickness. client received stone a month ago and brought in to house and stacked the tiles slightly offset on top each other so that they were easy to pick up. when bringing stone in to area to be tiled can see that the parts of the tiles that were exposed to air and sunlight have changed colour. this is clearly visible on photos. any ideas about how to get rid of these marks or what causes them having flagged them up i have been asked to fix regardless in the belief of client that what was hidden from light / air will change colour when exposed and fixed . i ve thrown the whole innards of cleaners in my van and wont touch itnd wont touch it

    I joined and and had a look at some of the work . some real quality but rainer is way better than any of the others as he is on our forum.its not just his tiling/stone fixing abilities it is more the whole package he can offer a client with his drawings /visualisations etcc. i showed some of the more unusaul stone fixing i do especially with antique reclaimed and found that some liked it and others indifferent probably because i dont fix the correct german way. rainer has said that they do not have forums like ours in germany because the time served pros have no time for non toimed served people like my self whatever work they put out. this is why rainer likes tiler forum as there is a mix of all sorts of oddballs that ended up in tiling game

    Why don't you like the window wall Toby? Yes, they can pose a challenge at times but this IMO is the one area of a bathroom that makes the job, I always pay particular attention to the plane of the tiles as well as the levels so there is a lot to keep an eye on here eh
