Accidents happen. Though natural stone is durable, it can still be damaged, chipped, cracked and scratched. This happens for a variety of reasons. On a softer stone like marble, moving heavy furniture across floors or using knives without the use of a cutting board can leave deep scratches on the surface. Even hard stone like granite can be chipped when stuck at just the right angle or with something heavy. Sometimes a poor installation, shifting of your home's structure, or extreme changes in temperature can create cracks. Regardless of how the damage occurred, however, we can repair most problems. We can hone and polish to remove etching and scratches. For cracks and chips we use professional repair techniques. Remedy can restore almost any stone to a gorgeous, like-new appearance.
Have you been living with a bad seam or seams on your countertops? Our stone experienced technicians can repair bad seams so they are less noticeable. With Remedy on your side, you don't have to live with scratches, chips, etching (a chemical reaction from acidic substances), or stains. We can bring your natural stone back to its original beauty. Remember, don't replace — let us repair and restore it.
Travertine is a unique natural stone. It forms in hot springs and naturally has holes due to the vapors that escape during its formation. Travertine floor tiles generally come from the factory with these holes filled. Over time, these fillers can come loose and accumulate contaminants that can look unsightly. Remedy can fill these travertine holes with specially selected fillers that match your tile, restoring it to it's initial beautiful appearance.
Etching is one of the most common issues encountered by homes and businesses. Caused by acidic substances coming in contact with the natural stone, etching appears as a dullish white mark, that is often mistaken for a water-stain. Marble and limestone, because they are mainly calcite, are especially susceptible to etching, which can come from acidic foods like soda, wine, lemons, tomatoes and so on, and everyday items like perfumes and some common cleaning products. If the etching is minor — it is smooth to the touch and doesn't cover a large area — we can recommend a product that you can try to remove the etching yourself. However, more severe etching — which you can feel with your fingers or covers a large area — needs professional restoration. Read our Stone and Tile Care Guide for tips on preventing etching.
