Honing, Polishing, and Refinishing
Does your travertine floor have dull areas associated with wear patterns, scratches, etches or spots? An uneven finish, dull spots or etches can diminish the elegant appearance of your travertine floors and surfaces. Godoy Stoneworks and Tile Care can hone your travertine surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new travertine surface free of damage. With our travertine honing and polishing services, our expert technicians can achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth. We can also polish your travertine using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to achieve a semi-gloss or gloss finish.
Are your travertine tiles uneven? Do you want your tile floor flattened to the grout lines to facilitate easier cleaning? We can grind away the excess stone (a process called lippage removal) to create a flat, level surface using state-of-the art diamond grinding technology. Once ground to the level and shape desired, the travertine is honed and polished to the finish you want.
Travertine is a unique stone in that it has naturally occurring holes. These holes are either left unfilled on purpose, for a rustic, casual look, or they are filled in for a more elegant appearance. If you want to have your unfilled travertine filled, or if the holes in your filled travertine are coming loose or reappearing, we provide expert travertine floating services.
Repair and Replacement
Do you have chipped, cracked, or broken travertine tiles? Our expert travertine repair services include filling in chipped areas in travertine, fixing travertine cracks, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your travertine floor, countertop or other stone surface. Although it is rare for a travertine tile to be beyond repair, sometimes tile replacement is necessary. Godoy Stoneworks and Tile Care craftsman can, in many cases, remove your affected tile without damaging neighboring tiles, reinstall the new tile, level the installed tile with the surrounding area, and then match the finish as closely as possible.
Whether you are seeking guidance on how to remove travertine stains or discolorations yourself or want us to treat your travertine, the original finish of your stone can be restored.
Cleaning and Sealing
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 marble will be easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. Once your marble 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.
