Stone is a durable, long-lasting material, but even stone gets damaged or loses its luster over time. Kitchen countertops experience regular wear and tear even when well-cared for, from hot dishes placed on them to oil and liquid spills and from chips to scratches. Cracks may appear even after stone has been carefully installed, caused by your home settling or simply because of naturally occurring fissures. We offer a variety of repair services to make the stone surfaces in your home look like new again.
When it comes to stone repair, it is important to understand how to do the technical repair work as well as how to ensure that the repair looks as good as new. We also take the time to ensure that the color and pattern of the stone remains consistent. With years of experience behind us, we provide you with both technical and aesthetic expertise to do any granite, marble or other stone repairs in your home or at your commercial property.
Repairing Cracks and Chips
Accidents, such as dropping a heavy cast iron pan, or normal wear and tear can cause cracks and chips in your countertops, fireplaces or other stone fixtures. We can assess which custom adhesion method would be appropriate for the type of damage and stone. The first step is generally to thoroughly clean the stone of not just dirt but also of any grease and soap. Then, we apply the necessary adhesion. Our aim is to ensure your stone or granite repair looks as beautiful as it did the day it was first installed.
Cracks may also occur in fireplaces, countertops and other stone if there is slab movement. We will match the pigment of your stone so that the place where it is repaired is indistinguishable from the rest of the stone.
Repairing Scratches and Honing
Even if your stone is not cracked, chipped or otherwise damaged, it may be scratched or may have lost its sheen. We can restore its look by using diamond grinding technology. We may choose abrasives that are medium or high grit to hone your stone surfaces and remove such imperfections as spots of wear. Honing and polishing can give your stone the beautiful finish you desire.
Many people do not think of stone as porous, but it is, and over time, this will affect its appearance. Even if you take the very best care of your stone countertops, spills are inevitable. Certain types of spills, including those involving acidic substances such as orange juice, wine, coffee or tea, may be particularly damaging. However, stone also absorbs water and other liquids.
Sealing helps protect your countertops and other stone, but it is not permanent. We can talk to you about how often you need to have sealing done.
Like all of our other services, sealing requires expertise for maximum protection and aesthetic appeal. We will choose the right number of coats based on the type of stone and ensure that we leave behind a beautiful finish.
You may be able to remove some stains yourself. If you have spilled wine or another liquid on stone, it should be cleaned up immediately before it soaks into the stone. Blot the spill instead of wiping it since wiping it just spreads the liquid around. Afterward, use water and a mild soap to flush the area, rinse it, and dry it with a soft cloth. You might need to do this more than once.
If you have a stain you cannot remove, we can help. Keeping your stone stain-free and sealed will help ensure you enjoy it for years to come.
Our other services include fallen sink replacement, cooktop expansion, and seam and backsplash repair.
Some of these may look like do-it-yourself jobs, but the problem is that if you do not have the expertise to do the work properly, you may find yourself either having to do it over and over again or causing actual damage to the beautiful stonework in your home or commercial space. Your satisfaction is our highest priority, and we are committed to ensuring that when we do stone repair work, we focus on both functionality and aesthetics. Your countertops, fireplaces and other stone items in your home are features that you want to last for many years. We can make sure that happens.
