For those of you living here in Santa Barbara, CA and having an exterior marble patio (or other type of natural stone) that hasn’t been addressed in a while and looks like all hope is lost: Houston we have the technology! We receive a lot of sunshine (UV) around these parts and combine that with wind-stirred dust as well as rain or water exposure and there you have it, a one-time beautifully-installed and enhancing aspect of your home now makes you want to consider ripping it out and replacing it because it looks like it’s been ruined. Hold your horses! Don’t despair yet! Here’s something for you to consider.

Oxidation and surface degradation can be remedied relatively simply and cost effectively on exterior natural stone provided the structural integrity is intact. It’s simply a matter of a little machine diamond abrasive honing and slurry extraction performed by one of our skilled stone restoration experts followed by proper protection so that not only is the enhancing beauty restored, you will have lower maintenance issues moving forward. That’s what we do for you- restore beauty and ensure less up-keep so you can do the things you like to do when time is on your side.

They say a picture says a thousand words….


The left photo is obviously the before with extensive oxidation and heavy grout dirt. The marble tile was installed 17 years ago and had very little (if any) upkeep since its original installation. Literally just a few hours later, post diamond honing and enhancing sealer application (followed up by a permanent sealer application which repels water and oil for 15 years) and the patio is virtually in its newly installed condition. The answer is yes if you are wondering if our work carries any warranty and not many companies can say that!
