Granite is one of the toughest stones available, but it is not impervious. The great news is that it can be restored and maintained. We can hone and polish away scratches, remove most stains, and fill in chipped areas.

We are never satisfied until you are and strive to always provide excellence in our services.

There is no dust created during the stone restoration process, because we use diamond abrasives and water, which produces a thin paste known as “slurry” in the stone restoration industry. We vacuum the slurry and clean up any remaining residue as part of our normal routine for every floor polishing job.

We prefer to maintain and restore rather than replace, however, if the tile is shattered or too badly damaged, replacement may be the best option. Contact us for an estimate, so we can assess your needs.
It is very rare that we recommend replacement. Virtually any damage to marble or other natural stone can be eliminated with repair and restoration services, which costs a lot less than replacement. Most likely, your marble floors can look brand new again. We will be happy to take a look at your floor and give you an estimate.

One method you can use to check if your stone needs to be sealed or resealed is to sprinkle some water on it. After a few minutes, wipe the water away. If a dark spot remains after a couple of seconds, which indicates the water was absorbed into the stone, it’s time to seal.
