What You Should Know About Natural Stone Restoration

Natural Stone Restoration 

Restoration of stone is the restoring of worn stone to the state in which it was installed. It may also include altering the stone’s surface to match the desired finish of the owner. Restoration is needed when the stone is damaged, worn out, uneven, and discolored. Fortunately, professionals can step in to help.

What is involved?

Restoration of natural stone involves the removal of scratches and/or damage from the surface of the stone by means of mechanical abrasion. This is also known as diamond grinding. Natural stone reflects light and doesn’t need a topical coating or wax to achieve this desired finish. In fact, it only needs a series of diamond grits used in the proper order by a master technician who is experienced in their use. A restoration professional will also take care to protect the surrounding surfaces from damage.

How long does it take?

Each type of stone and the desired finish for each as well as the size of the job will set the pace for the length of time needed to complete a project. If you are hoping to restore over 300 sq ft of any stone, chances are you are looking at more than one day of work, realistically.

What can I expect?

You can expect to have your stone looking like new again and will be given the proper maintenance instructions for long-term care. Scratches, etch marks, and wear can be removed, so you will want to be careful to keep the stone looking like new. 

Natural stone damage can happen for a variety of reasons, from poor maintenance, general wear and tear, weather, and incorrect installation. That is why it is important to ensure that your concrete work is completed by a fully qualified team of professionals.
