Stone restoration is the art of restoring your natural stone surfaces to their originally installed factory condition. Restoration work is performed by an experienced technician on worn stone such as marble, travertine, granite, etc. such that the results of the work allows the finish of the surface to return to the state in which it was originally installed. It could also entail the altering of the stone’s surface to match a desired finish of the installation’s owner or management. In some cases an owner may desire a polished surface to be honed or a honed surface to be highly polished. Dimensional stone is a natural stone or rock that has been harvested and fabricated for specific construction and/or building purposes. Sandstone, marble, granite, and travertine are really popular in our area and we’re the company you want to get it to look right. Over time the appearance of stone surfaces diminishes through normal use, despite adhering to a cleaning regimen that conforms to the specific stone and/or use of proper sealers. They don’t have to stay that way and believe it or not, it’s not necessarily that expensive to restore it.
Our restorative procedure for re-honing or re-polishing is a completely green process employing specific mechanical abrasive techniques which are minimally disruptive, use only minimal water, and provides a final appearance which restores the surface to its original luster.
We’re an experienced stone restoration company having specific skills and equipment for specific work and outcome expectations. How you want it matters to us! Furthermore, we “know how to do it right” when properly sealing natural stone after restorative work has been performed. Proper sealing protects the stone, to the extent sealers can as no sealer prevents etching for example, and in accordance to sealer manufacturer specified maintenance guidelines. Sealing is often times an overlooked aspect of stone work but not with Santa Barbara Stone Masters.
