Floors

Yes. We'll explain in great deal detail what we will do and how it will look.
No. Give us a call. Free firm quotations. Our clients have expressed a sense of relief over the years that our restorations are not only GREAT, but very reasonably priced.
No. They are selling you a product and are not focusing on what's best for you or your floor. Test your floor for porosity and it will tell you when it needs sealer. Don't waste sealer and your time applying it when it won't help you.
No. It will only protect against stains going deep into the stone.
We will show you how to test a floor to see if sealer will penetrate into it. If it can't penetrate it can't protect.
We mix various chemicals with an agent and apply to the stain - thick, like peanut butter. We cover with plastic and tape all the edges, placing small holes around the plastic to allow for slow evaporation. As the chemical dries it pulls the stain into the agent. It usually takes multiple attempts to get most or all of the stain out.
Stains are usually misdiagnosed. A true stain is when something is spilled on the floor and penetrates to leave a darker color area in the stone. We can usually pull a stain out through use of poultices. It helps if you can identify what was spilled that caused the stain.
No. Marble Renaissance can delivery highly polished, any level of a honed finish and an antiqued finish as well (some call this a leathered look).
We clean the grout lines of every floor we restore. Occasionally we find some grout discoloration from a possible grout repair that the color didn't match perfectly or there is some staining, but we will get the grout clean.
No. There is no dust in the process. We release a small amount of water out as we work which eliminates dust and also serves to lubricate our pads so they don't burn out. We vacuum the water as soon as we finish each small section during each of the different grits.
We resurface the floor by using specialty pads on the bottom of a marble floor restoration machine. The weight of the machine helps grind off the very top layer of the floors surface literally scratching out the imperfections. Several other grits bring the shine back. We finish with a marble polish to ring the floor back to factory finish.
There are usually two actions that damage a marble floor. Scratches that accumulate over time and acid-etching. That's when something acidic is spilled on the floor and it burns into the surface changing the reflection causing a dull spot.

Tops

We have found that EVERY granite top we've run into that is 7 years old or older can simply be polished with a special process we use and the conclusion is factory finish or better.

We will show you how to test the stone to see if sealer will penetrate into it. If it can't penetrate it can't protect.
No, but we can deliver a better result if the faucets are removed before we arrive. With the faucets in place there is always a tiny amount of the top we cannot properly restore, even by hand.
As soon as we complete our work and clean up you'll be ready to put back into service.

Yes. We can use various tools and techniques to remove damaged surface areas and bring the top back to a great finish. Sometimes it makes more sense to restore the whole top to best blend the damaged area so it looks natural.

Yes, almost all white marble contains iron that can turn to rust as water migrates into the stone. This happens from water constantly hitting the edge or back of the tile. You should check for grout and caulk breakdowns in your shower and, if you see any, repair immediately.
Some areas or homes have iron issues that leave deposits on the surface. We can almost always remove these.
