Marble Restoration Services for Hawthorn Homes

RESTORE THE MARBLE IN YOUR HAWTHORN HOME INSTEAD OF REPLACING

Acclaimed for its beauty, elegance and style, marble is the stone of choice for many Hawthorn homes. This is because of it is a high-end, luxurious option for interiors including for floors as well as bathroom and kitchen benchtops. In addition, marble has a timeless appearance that is elegant but durable. It is no wonder it has become so popular in the Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn.

From hallways to kitchens and bathrooms, marble makes a statement in any space. Like all stone tiles, it requires maintenance. Marble is porous, which means it stains, scratches and wears easily. It is especially vulnerable to household acids like vinegar, mustard, citrus and other food-related products. Acidic substances can cause deep stains, etching in the tile and can remove the marble’s natural, stunning shine.

Like all natural stones, marble needs to be sealed regularly. Since cleaning products for deep stains on marble are limited, it’s worth the time and effort to hire a restoration professional for your Hawthorn home. In particular, marble polishing is best left to the experts. We have the specialised machinery with diamond infused polishing pads. This restores the natural lustre of your marble tiles.

 

TYPES OF MARBLE

There’s a great deal of variety available when it comes to marble for your Hawthorn home. This includes:

  • Veining: Small lines of color what gives this natural stone its unique look. In fact this veining affect is often referred to as “marbleized” when describing other items.
  • Gloss: A highly polished version of the stone that makes it reflective and shiny.
  • Tumbled: A process that distresses and ages the stone so it appears dulled. This soft look creates a milky, creamy color, making it seem buffed rather than glossy.
  • Honed: A no-gloss variety that has a flat, matte, or satin finish. It creates an earthy affect that’s become popular due to its less formal appeal. Plus, it reduces risk of etching.
  • Etching: With everyday foot traffic, the surface may slightly wear by slowly removing its initial polish.
