Classic Marble Restoration, Inc. specializes in grinding procedures for all natural stone and terrazzo. A lot of people think that “grinding” is a very harsh and abrasive procedure. In-fact, when performed properly, it can be utilized to maintain your stone’s life for many generations to come.
Grinding used to be a very dusty and messy procedure for natural stone, including marble, travertine, limestone, and terrazzo. Over the years there have been many improvements in these processes, namely dust-free methods. We utilize water to lubricate the surface we are refinishing with grinding tools – therefore keeping all of the marble shavings trapped in the liquid and eventually vacuumed up. This is especially favorable inside of residences, public buildings, hotels, and yachts.
Some of our Grinding services that we offer are:
- Leveling & Lippage Removal – This process will bring down the height of an entire surface and eliminate the presence of un-level tiles that are higher and lower than their neighboring tiles. This can be performed either after a new installation – or any time thereafter.
- Diamond Grinding – This procedure is fairly common in any home and property that contains natural stone and terrazzo. It is needed when there is significant wear-and-tear and visible signs of excessive dulling and abrasions. Full restoration utilizes diamond grinding prior to honing or polishing.
- Sanding – Sanding is usually only needed when there are extremely deep scratches in a stone surface that needs isolated attention. It is also used when filling holes and making repairs. This may sometimes create minor dust.
With a proper professional maintenance plan – Grinding will not be necessary as often as a home that neglects their stone. Classic Marble Restoration, Inc. will educate and set you up with an effective system to best suit you and your stone.
