We offer comprehensive services that will clean, polish, and seal your natural stone surfaces so that they look brand new again!
The natural stone restoration process
The natural stone restoration process begins with a full inspection of the surface to be restored. A determination is then made as to the appropriate course of action based on the condition of the stone.
If the stone is severely damaged, it may be necessary to remove the old finish completely and start from scratch. In most cases, however, a light cleaning and polishing will suffice. The restorer will use a variety of techniques and tools to achieve the desired results, including sanding, honing, grinding, and chemical treatment.
The finished surface should be consistent in color and texture with the rest of the natural stone and should last for many years if properly maintained.

How to choose a reputable restoration company

What to expect during the restoration process
If you're looking to restore the natural beauty of your stone, you can expect the following process:
- The first step is a consultation in which we will come to your home and assess the condition of your stone. We will then provide you with a quote for the restoration process.
- Once you have approved the quote, we will begin by removing any previous sealers or coatings that may be on the surface of the stone. We will then clean and etch the surface to create a better bonding surface for the new sealer.
- After that, we will apply a penetrating sealer that will protect your stone from staining and fading. The sealer will also help to reduce water absorption, which can help prevent cracking.
- The restoration process typically takes about 1-2 days to complete, depending on the size of the property. Once it is finished, your home will look like new again!
How to care for your restored natural stone surfaces
To care for your restored natural stone surfaces, we recommend the following:
Wipe down with a slightly damp cloth and dry immediately. Do not use any cleaning products or abrasives.
Avoid contact with acidic foods and beverages, such as lemon juice, vinegar, etc.
Do not place hot pots or pans directly on the surface. Use a trivet or hot pad instead.
