At Rockland Stone Restoration, we know marble. We understand and appreciate its characteristics. Our passion for what we do and a strong commitment to educate our customers on proper care and maintenance is evident in every single job we do.
Marble Floor Polishing and Maintenance
Rockland Stone Restoration’s professional marble floor and surface care and maintenance services for residential properties include expert interior and exterior cleaning and sanitizing, honing and polishing, repairs, sealing and protection, and more.
Is your marble floor too dull or too shiny? Call Rockland Stone Restoration and specify the finish you need. If you have a new floor with some tiles that look more glossy than others – let Rockland Stone Restoration 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 or changed marble finish.
Lippage Removal / Grinding
Are your marble tiles uneven? Do you want your 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 marble is honed and polished to the finish you want.
Does your marble floor have dull areas associated with wear patterns, scratches, etches or spots? Rockland Stone Restoration can hone your marble surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new marble surface free of damage. With our marble 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 marble floors. Rockland Stone Restoration can polish your marble using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to restore the finish you want, whether matte, semi-gloss or gloss finish. With our marble 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 Marble
Marble cleaning processes vary based on the surface condition and type of dirt or oil being removed. Marble 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 for dirt to collect, your marble can become difficult to keep clean again. Rockland Stone Restoration can assist you in not only cleaning your marble surfaces, but in keeping your marble properly polished, maintained, and free of scratches to help make regular cleaning and care of your stone easier.
Marble Stain Removal
Rockland Stone Restoration can remove marble stains, as well as marble discolorations. Whether you are seeking guidance on how to do this yourself or want Rockland Stone Restoration to treat your marble, the original finish of your stone can be restored.
Do you have chipped marble tiles? Are there cracks in your floor? What about broken marble tiles? Before you replace your marble, consider having us provide expert marble repair services. Rockland Stone Restoration can fill holes in marble, fix marble cracks and chips, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your marble floor, countertop or other stone surface.
Marble Tile Replacement
Although it is rare for a marble 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 marble and limestone looking sharp again.
Scheduled Marble Maintenance
Regular cleaning and janitorial services are valuable for simple, day-to-day care of marble 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.
