Rockland Stone Restoration's professional slate floor and surface care and maintenance services include expert interior and exterior cleaning, repairs, sealing and protection, and more. We can resolve any problems associated with your slate surfaces, such as dullness, chipping, scratches or other damage, and apply color enhancing or topical sealers to achieve the finish you desire.
Slate Cleaning and Restoration
Over time, thick layers of soap residue, waxes, and other topical coatings can dull and hide the beautiful inherent colors and untamed charm of your slate floors and surfaces. The qualified technicians at Rockland Stone Restoration can strip away this dull buildup, as well as the dirt and contaminants it often traps, to reveal the naturally stunning surface underneath.
If your slate surfaces have become cracked, chipped, scratched, or otherwise damaged, Rockland Stone Restoration can resolve these issues, most often without need of replacement. We can also take care of any grout problems you may have through our deep-cleaning, sealing and repair services.
Cleft Finish Slate Expertise
In the wrong hands, your beautiful cleft slate surfaces can be easily damaged during deep cleaning or restoration. Rockland Stone Restoration has the knowledge of and expertise in the proper equipment, techniques and powders needed to ensure the lasting beauty of your installation. We are always available to answer any questions and to discuss the specific requirements of your unique slate surfaces.
Sealing and Protecting Slate
Most — though not all — varieties of slate are virtually waterproof. This may mean sealing your slate is unnecessary, but it doesn’t necessarily mean sealing is undesirable. There are color enhancing sealers and coatings which can make the natural colors of your slate surfaces emerge more vibrantly. And, of course, for those types of slate which are not as waterproof as they could be, applying a sealer can further support their resistance to staining agents and weather conditions. Rockland Stone Restoration not only provides these services, we are also happy to discuss your specific needs and educate you on the best way to care for your unique slate type and installation. We are proud to recommend and supply stone-safe solutions for your regular cleaning and maintenance needs as well.
