Stone Maintenance/Restoration

You can use diamond abrasives to the restoration of your stone surfaces. The use of diamonds in the grinding and honing phase of restoration will provide you better clarity and more reflectivity after polishing. We also give cleaning, sealing, crack/chip repair and stain removal for marble, granite, travertine, terrazzo and all other natural stone surfaces.

Following are the restoration / maintenance services and what they involve:

Grinding: To remove deep scratches and remove lippage (uneven tile edges).

Honing: To remove minor scratches and wear from everyday foot traffic. This process is also done by machine with diamond abrasive pads and water which creates no dust.

Polishing: To give marble or stone the sheen you want, enhance the veining in marble and to protect the marble or stone from everyday traffic and spills.

Cleaning: To remove dirt, stains and bacteria and to remove waxes and polymers that has become embedded.

Sealing: To protect and preserve natural stone.

Color Enhancing: The use of penetrating sealers / impregnators formulated to enhance or enrich the color of your stone.

Stripping: To remove coatings that block stone's ability to breathe which causes spalling (when the stones crack, pop and shale). Some examples of common coatings are, crystallization, janitorial waxes, and polyurethane.
