In limestone, sandstone, granite, marble or slate, BCA Antique Materials’ reclaimed stone flooring bear the marks of time and the wear to which they’ve been subjected. It is this natural patina obtained over the centuries that makes the ancient slabs unique and sought after. For an exterior terrace or courtyard, or an interior floor, our reclaimed flagstones can be integrated into historic projects or contemporary schemes where the material quality is entirely appropriate.
Generally very thick, our reclaimed flagstones are very robust, and their surface finish will be variable according to the stone type and the use to which it had been put over the centuries. The good news is that we are able to saw some of these stocks (the limestone in particular) down to a manageable regular thickness, typically approx 30mm (1.2 inches). This facilitates their use for interior projects, and for exterior projects where they are to be laid on over concrete. However consult us if your thickness requirements differ.
The limestone flooring from “Bourgogne” is a noble hard dense limestone, suitable for interiors and exteriors (enabled by Bourgogne stone’s excellent level of frost resistance). With many quarries across a wide region of Eastern France providing different stone colours, there are from nearly white to blue-grey, but Bourgogne flagstone is best known for its creamy beiges. Truly magnificent in its natural state, the limestone from “Bourgogne” is appreciated for its authenticity and its ability to be integrated into projects of different styles. A lot of Burgundy stone comes in light beige and cream through to dark beige, which brings a warm atmosphere thanks to the nuances of the stone.
