Damaged limestone floor restored in Boston

Mar 22, 2018

This project has been in the works for several months. The top three floors of the former Verizon office building at 8 Harrison Ave, Boston, is being converted into residential rental apartments. Included in the renovation is the creation of a new residential lobby complete with mailroom, a trash and recycling center, a bike storage room and tenant storage space.

The original limestone floor was in disrepair. It was cracked and severely scratched from all foot traffic during the renovation.

Limestone is a naturally occurring rock that has traditionally been used as a building and construction material due to its durability and strength. Limestone is a sedimentary rock, composed mainly of skeletal fragments of marine organisms such as coral, forams and mollusks. Its major materials are the minerals calcite and aragonite, which are different crystal forms of calcium carbonate. Limestone comes in several shades, tones and textures which is what makes it such a beautiful and suitable flooring choice.

Once all the tradespeople were done, Boston Stone Restoration repaired the cracks and polished the floor to a high shine. The results speak for themselves!
