Marble Countertop Restoration

Unlike stains, discoloration, and water spots, restoring etching on marble countertops can be very difficult to address.  This is primarily because etched marks are the result of acidic substances, such as chemical cleaning solutions or other products corroding the marble.

Etching on marble can be quite common on kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities.   The main reason for this is that most individuals are unaware traditional, household cleaners can actually harm the marble surface over time.  As the acids penetrate the marble stone, the surface will eventually corrode and the appearance of the marble significantly dulls.  Also, because marble is a soft natural stone, there is a greater risk of etching occurring over time.

No matter the severity of your marble countertop or vanity’s etch marks, invest in quality marble restoration services to buff and refinish the countertop surface to bring them back to their original luster.

 

Benefits of Our Professional Marble Countertop Restoration Services

1. CLEANING MARBLE STAINS

Grout and rust stains can be quite difficult and often times, almost impossible without professional assistance.  Scrubbing the stain or using the wrong cleaning detergent increases the risk of scratching and causes other imperfections. With calcium bicarbonate being the the main compound in marble, only a select few chemicals should be used for stain removal.  Our professionals can restore your marble countertops by efficiently taking care of these stains with our top-of-the-line equipment.

2. ETCH MARKS REMOVAL

Soft marble is prone to scratching and other marks.  Removing these blemishes to obtain a smooth, radiant look can be very difficult for an untrained hand.  Hiring our professionals for polishing can help get rid of these marks and other imperfections much better than a do-it-yourself person. They will do everything from grinding, honing, polishing, and even buffing to restore the original shine of the marble surface.

3. CONVENIENCE

Although you might be diligent at keeping your surfaces clean, there are times when an expert’s help is essential.  Using professional marble countertop restoration services can save you the time you would have otherwise spent doing it yourself.  Additionally, having an expert work on the surfaces can potentially restore them to their former glory.

PROCESS

Wonder where to begin with a marble countertop project?

  • Typically, if you’re working on a kitchen, the cabinets and countertops dictate the marble selection. The reverse is true when working on a bathroom, where the shower and wall drive the choice of countertop (not always, but it is a good place to start).
  • Choosing marble countertops can be overwhelming- there are thousands of possibilities. This is where one of the staff designers can help you. If you have some selections made, such as cabinet color, paint or stone, please bring those samples with you. If you have inspiration photos, feel free to bring those as well.
  • You will be assigned one of our knowledgeable designers who will discuss the scope and timing of your project as well as design, color palette, functionality, and budget.
  • The designer will work with you on the marble selection and the layout of the marble as well as matching caulk and grout. As needed, sketches may be provided.
  • If you make a marble selection and have the dimensions of your project, you will likely have a same day estimate.
  • Once you have selected your marble, we can provide you with an estimate for marble installation or we work with your marble setter or builder to provide quantities.
