Is your limestone floor too dull or too shiny? Call Rockland Stone Restoration and specify the look you want. If your new floor has some tiles that look more glossy than others, our expert technicians can even out the finish for you. Whether you have or are seeking to acquire a gloss, semi-gloss or matte finish, Rockland Stone Restoration can deliver a beautifully restored limestone finish.
Lippage Removal / Grinding
Are your tiles uneven? Do you want your limestone tile floor flattened to the grout lines to facilitate easier cleaning? Rockland Stone Restoration can grind away the excess stone (a process called lippage removal) to create a flat, level surface using state-of-the art diamond grinding technology. Once ground to the level and shape desired, the limestone is honed and polished to the finish you want.
Are wear patterns, scratches, etches or spots dulling the once gorgeous surface of your limestone? Rockland Stone Restoration can hone your limestone surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new limestone surface free of damage. With our limestone honing services, our expert technicians can achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth.
An uneven finish, dull spots or etches can diminish the elegant appearance of your limestone floors. Rockland Stone Restoration can polish your limestone using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to restore the finish you want, whether matte, semi-gloss or gloss finish. With our limestone polishing services, our expert technicians can achieve a beautiful, glass-like polish.
Some natural stone types are more porous than others, and the more porous a natural stone is, the more susceptible it is to staining. Your marble will be easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. Once your marble is cleaned and restored, we may recommend you have us seal it to enhance its stain resistance. We say, "May" because not all stone needs to be sealed. Highly polished stone may not even take an impregnating sealer. But, if sealing is recommended, know that sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against stain damage, because it buys you time to wipe up spills before they become stains.
Deep Cleaning and Sanitizing Limestone
Limestone cleaning processes vary based on the surface condition and type of dirt or oil being removed. Limestone 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 where dirt can collect, your limestone can become more difficult to keep. Rockland Stone Restoration can assist you in not only cleaning your limestone surfaces, but in keeping your limestone properly polished, maintained, and free of scratches to help make regular cleaning and care of your stone easier.
Limestone Stain Removal
Rockland Stone Restoration can remove stains on your limestone, as well as limestone discolorations. Whether you are seeking guidance on how to do this yourself or want Rockland to treat your limestone, the original finish of your stone can be restored.
Do you have chipped limestone tiles? Are there cracks in your floor? What about broken limestone tiles? Before you replace your limestone, consider having Rockland Stone Restoration provide expert limestone repair services. Rockland Stone Restoration can fill holes in limestone and fix limestone cracks and chips, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, then honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your limestone floor, countertop or other stone surface.
Limestone Tile Replacement
Although it is rare for a limestone tile to be beyond repair, sometimes tile replacement is necessary. Rockland Stone Restoration craftsman can, in many cases, remove your affected tile without damaging neighboring tiles, reinstall the new tile, level the installed tile with the surrounding are, and then match the finish as closely as possible. Unless you have an extra tile from the original lot to install, replacement tiles will likely be noticeably different. Even if you purchase the same tile by name from the same quarry, the quarry line has shifted and with that so has the color. Have no fear, our professional technicians have the knowledge, experience, and skills to get your limestone looking sharp again.
Scheduled Limestone Maintenance
Regular cleaning and janitorial services are valuable for simple, day-to-day care of limestone 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. Ask about our regularly scheduled maintenance program which keeps your floors looking great all the time, without the need for periodic restoration.
