ASSESSMENT: Lime initially met this homeowner to estimate their gutters, but the Lime Home Advisor had noticed the beautiful flagstone walk and patio was beginning to discolor, fade and breakdown in areas. The homeowner was educated on the benefit of sealing a masonry surface to resist against sun and moisture and approved of protecting the flagstone.
ADVISE: Typical Lime protocol is to do a consistent deep power wash of the surface with a commercial grade power washer. Due to the high pressure of the power wash, Lime utilized plastic in areas to ensure mud and dirt was not passed to other parts of the property. Once powerwashed Lime bristle brushed darker spots. The homeowners did not want a “gloss” finish, and Lime advised them of a natural sealers that dries with no sheen and maintains the stones natural look. Due to the porosity of the stone Lime recommended coating with 2 coats, ensuring their would be a layer of product that would lay on the surface. Aesthetically there was not a huge transformation on this project, but there was a newfound peace of mind for the homeowners, as they now know they were protecting their flagstone.
