I recently purchased some Fireplace Stone Coating paint in limestone effect from yourselves and wanted to show my appreciation for the quality of your more

I dont generally go out of my way to post comments about products that I have purchased. This is one of the very rare occassions that I have been so impressed that I just had to write to you.

I saw the advertisement for the stone paint when I was actually looking to purchase a new fire surround. I thought what have I got to lose if it doesnt turn out I have only lost the price of the paint.
I have just finished the surround and I cant believe how good it looks. Infact it looks better than the ones I have seen in the shops. For just a liitle time and patience I have saved my self around £700.I wish I could let everyone who is about to demolish a perfectly good wooden surround just because it is no longer fashionable know just how easy the process is and how fantastic the results are.

Thanks again. Vicky

I feel that I should write to you to say Thank-You for selling me such a fantastic product. I was on the market for a new fire surround but then I heard about StoneLux fire surround paint. I though I would give it a try and I am so glad that we did, my old surround now looks and feels like stone. It's so beautiful now, this product has saved us alot of money as we do not now need a new surround. Thank you so much for sending the paint so fast.

Thank you again -

I am very pleased with the White fleck limestone paint which has transformed and neutralised the old varnished wood fireplace which wasn't to my taste. Everyone who has been into my flat following the refurbishment has commented on how good the fireplace looks and feels to the touch. Highly recommended, many thanks.
