Are your stone surfaces too dull or too shiny? Call WHAT A SHINE!. We can achieve the finish you desire. If you have a new floor with some tiles that look more glossy than others – let us even out the finish for you. Whether you have or are seeking to acquire a gloss, semi-gloss or matte finish, our knowledgeable technicians can deliver a beautifully restored finish for all your exotic natural stone surfaces.
When tiles are set unevenly, this is called lippage. Aside from detracting from the beauty of your installation, lippage can create a trip and fall hazard. You need not replace the entire floor, because our expert technicians can grind the stone to a uniform, flat surface. The honed or polished end result will look as good or better than when the floor was first installed.
Exotic natural stone reacts to acids found in lemon, wine, cleaners, and other substances, which can result in etch marks on the stone’s surface. Our expert technicians can hone your stone countertops, furniture tops, walls, floors and other surfaces to eliminate etching, wear patterns, scratches, dullness and other problems. They can also achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth.
WHAT A SHINE! can also polish your exotic natural stone using the appropriate diamond-infused pads or polishing powders to provide a beautiful, glass-like polish.
Some natural stone types are more porous than others, and the more porous a natural stone is, the more susceptible it is to staining. Your exotic natural stone will be easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. Once it is cleaned and restored, we may recommend you have us seal it to enhance its stain resistance. We say, “may” because not all stone needs to be sealed. Highly polished stone may not even take an impregnating sealer. But, if sealing is recommended, know that sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against stain damage, because it buys you time to wipe up spills before they become stains.
WHAT A SHINE! is experienced in removing stains and discolorations from your exotic natural stone surfaces. Whether you are seeking guidance for do-it-yourself stain removal or would prefer to have us remove the discolorations for you, rest assured that most stains can be removed.
WHAT A SHINE! provides residential and commercial stone maintenance services. In addition, we can recommend and implement a maintenance program tailored to the placement, traffic, and usage of your stone surfaces.
