Reduce Reuse Restore
Those not in the stone industry often believe that sealer is what gives stone its sheen. While sealer does color enhance, stone polishing and restoration takes much more effort than simply sealing.
Various types of stone require different polishing techniques. Porous marbles usually require an 800 grit polish, and acids can be added to soften the surface and polish it even higher. Granite, a much harder stone, can require up to 3,000 grit.
Restoring stone is a similar process. Stone can become discolored over time due to etching, dirt build-up, and staining. However, it can be restored through re-polishing and re-sealing the surface.
