Travertine Refinishing

interior-travertineTravertine comes in a honed (matte finish) and a polished finish. These finishes need to be cared for and will from time to time need honing to remove scratches and etching or it will need to be re-polished and sealed. Is your floor too dull or too shiny? Call Beyond Stone Solutions and specify the finish you need. If you have a new floor with some tiles that look more glossy than others – let us even out the finish for you. Whether you have or are seeking to acquire a gloss, semi-gloss or matte finish, we can deliver a beautifully restored travertine finish.

Travertine Grinding

Are your tiles uneven? Do you want your tile floor flattened to the grout lines to facilitate easier cleaning? Beyond Stone Solutions can grind away the excess stone to create a flat, level surface using state-of-the art diamond grinding technology. Once ground to the level and shape desired, the travertine is honed and polished to the finish you want.

Travertine Honing

exterior-travertineDoes your travertine floor have dull areas associated with wear patterns, scratches, etches or spots? We can hone your travertine surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new travertine surface free of damage. With our travertine honing services, our expert technicians can achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth.

Travertine Polishing

An uneven finish, dull spots or etches can diminish the elegant appearance of your travertine floors. We can polish your travertine using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to restore the finish you want, whether matte, semi-gloss or gloss finish. With our travertine polishing services, our expert technicians can achieve a beautiful, glass-like polish.

Impregnating / Sealing Travertine

Once your travertine floors, showers, tub surrounds, walls, and other travertine surfaces are restored, we highly recommend you have us seal your travertine to enhance its stain resistance. All stones (unless resinated) are naturally porous. If left unsealed, there’s always a risk of spilling a colored or reactive liquid, discoloring your stone. While most stains can be removed, travertine stain removal can be a time consuming, expensive and often frustrating process. Sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against travertine stain damage.

Deep Cleaning Travertine

Travertine cleaning processes vary based on the surface condition and type of dirt or oil being removed. Travertine is easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. However, once wear sets in, creating hollows and low points for dirt to collect, your travertine can become difficult to keep clean again. We can assist you in not only cleaning your travertine surfaces, but in keeping your travertine properly polished, maintained, and free of scratches to help make regular cleaning and care of your stone easier.

Beyond Stone Solutions can remove deeply imbedded soiling, strip away years of buildup of unsightly topical treatments, remove soap film in showers, and get rid of soot on fireplaces, and resolve a host of travertine cleaning problems, leaving your stone as pristine as the day it was installed.

Travertine Stain Removal

We can remove travertine stains and travertine discolorations. Whether you are seeking guidance on how to do this yourself or want us to treat your travertine, the stain most likely can be removed.

Travertine Repairs

Do you have chipped travertine tiles? Are there cracks in your travertine floor? What about broken travertine tiles? Before you replace your travertine, consider having us provide expert travertine repair services. We can fill holes in travertine, fix travertine cracks and chips, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your travertine floor, countertop or other travertine surface.

Travertine Holes Filled

Travertine comes in what is known as filled and unfilled. What this means is that travertine naturally has holes that run throughout the stone. With unfilled travertine, the holes remain exposed for a rustic, earthy finish. With filled travertine, the holes are filled in, giving the stone a smooth finish.

Beyond Stone Solutions can fill holes in travertine (a process called travertine floating) to give unfilled travertine a smooth appearance or to repair filled travertine with holes that have become exposed. We use tinted filler and then blend the repair site with the surrounding area, honing and polishing it to match the surrounding finish.

Travertine Tile Replacement

Most damaged tiles can be repaired, but sometimes it is necessary to replace a tile. Unfortunately, unless you have extra tiles on hand, the replacement tiles we find will be noticeably different. We can replace your tile, using extra care to avoid damaging neighboring tiles, leveling the reinstalled tile with surrounding tiles, and matching the finish as closely as possible.

Color Enhancing Travertine

Travertine is characterized by its neutral earthtone colors. For certain types of travertine, our skilled technicians can apply an enhancing sealer to intensify the color and enrich its natural beauty.

Scheduled Travertine Maintenance

Regular cleaning and janitorial services are valuable for simple, day-to-day care of travertine floors. But over time, their processes leave floors with grout lines that just won’t come clean, shiny scratches, and increasingly obvious traffic patterns. As these problems develop, you become more and more dissatisfied with the appearance of the floors until it’s time for another round of professional restoration. With our regularly scheduled maintenance program, your floors can look great all the time, without the need for periodic restoration.
