What is Stone Restoration?

It is the technique of restoring damaged or worn marble, travertine, limestone or terrazzo to bring it back to like new condition by removing etched areas, scratches, lips, cleaning grout, re-polishing and re-sealing the surface of the stone. This is done by using a combination of the following processes:

  • Deep clean the stone to remove old wax, polymers and dirt
  • Grind out lips and scratches with abrasive diamond pads
  • Hone back the old finish to remove dulled and etched areas with finer abrasive diamond pads
  • Polish to like new condition using fine abrasive diamond pads
  • Seal with a proprietary impregnator to protect the body of the stone
  • Regular maintenance to keep the stone as good as new and remove the need for expensive restoration in future

We have specialist technicians covering the following areas: Greater London, St Albans, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Nottingham, Derby, Manchester, Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate and York.

Other Recent Projects

Emperador Marble Floor, 75m2

The marble was etched along the grout joints by incorrect use of a grout cleaner. The marble was honed and re-polished using abrasive pads, re-sealed and buffed to a high gloss.

Limestone Floor, 100m2

The tiles had been finished with an unsuitable surface coating which left the stone very patchy, with gloss in some parts and matt in others. We stripped the old sealer with a deep stone cleaner and re-honed the stone with medium abrasive diamond pads then sealed it with the correct sealer.

Encaustic Terracotta Tiles, 25m2

These tiles were just installed and we cleaned them, sealed them with a silicon impregnator then applied 2 coats of beeswax polish to protect the surface of these beautiful Spanish tiles.

Marble Vanity top and Bath surround

General use, shampoo, abrasive cleaning creams etc had stripped the polish from the surface. We ground the stone back and re-polished it, re sealed and buffed it back to a factory finish.

Marble Table top

The marble had been broken and chipped during a move. We repaired the top using steel rods to support the stone and filled the break and the chips with colour matched resins. The entire surface and all the edges were ground back and re polished to a factory finish.

Crema Marfil Staircase

The treads were scratched and dulled by foot traffic. We ground them back, re polished them to give an even polish across the treads and risers. The stone was sealed and buffed. A regular maintenance programme will keep them looking good for many years to come.
