Marble & Granite Restoration

Marble is actually a fairly soft stone especially compared to granite. Normal use will start to dull marble in the traffic lanes and your floor may also have some noticable scratches.

The restoration process will return your marble & granite installation to original condition, prolong its life and give you added enjoyment. All surface restoration provides high quality, personnel service and care in restoring marble & granite to its natural beauty and shine.

The deep shine we see on polished stone is achieved by rubbing the stone with a series of abrasive materials starting with a coarse abrasive grit. This is followed by finer and finer grits until the stone becomes smooth, much like how wood floors are refinished. The difference is diamond abrasives are used rather than sand paper. The scratches left behind from one grit are removed by the next grit, creating a increasingly smoother surface. The shine on the stone is achieved by abrading the surface until it becomes extremely smooth . The smoother the stone the more reflective it becomes.

What is Marble Restoration

When natural stone becomes dull and scratched, it loses its shine and luster. At this time the stone needs to be refinished to restore its original shine.

Stone Finishing Options The refinishing process depends on what "look" you want to achieve.

A "honed" finish is a flat finish and will not be reflective. The stone will look "dull" but will be uniform. A "honed" finish will not show imperfections or scratches and is considered a "low maintenance" floor.

A "high honed" finish has a sheen to it but is not reflective except at low angles of view. It does not look dull but does not jump out at you either. It is also considered a "low maintenace" floor and is uniform throughout. A "polished" finish will be reflective at all angles high and low.
