Marble Restoration A Quick Introduction

Marble restoration means different things to different people from cleaning marble tiles, to marble polishing to marble grinding.

If you have uneven scratched marble tiles, they they will need to be restored by grinding them to make them smooth before honing and polishing.

Marble restoration is a considered investment costing anywhere from £30 to £50 per square meter, depending on the condition of the floor and the type of marble.

The grinding process usually leaves the grout flush with the surface of the marble, making them much easier to keep clean.

Marble grinding is done with heavy weight (85kg+) diamond grinding machinery. The best finish is achieved using a planetary grinding head.

Marble Repair

Marble can have many problems; from holes, chips, cracks and stuns. They show themselves as  holes or voids in the marble

depending on the nature of the damage, the fillers may beed to be left to harden  – usually 24 hours – and the repair may need to be lightly ground to remove excess filler from the surface of the marble

If the marble filler is not flush with the marble surface, the area is filled for a second time and left to harden.

Again the surface is lightly ground to remove and excess filler and the floor is usually smooth after a second filling.
