travertine floor and fireplace
Travertine, in its natural matte finish, is skid resistant and has a classy, antique appeal. If polished, it has the veined look of marble. When exposed to acidic substances, heavy traffic, or residual build-up of cleaners, travertine looks unsightly and outdated. We know travertine and skillfully restore it to its timeless beauty.
Polished granite, second in hardness only to diamond, is the most popular stone for countertops because of its sleek, glamorous appearance and durability. Stained, dull, or chipped granite has a lackluster appearance and may even be unsanitary. Big Island Surface Care gives new life to your granite.
Is your soapstone in need of cleaning or repair? Even after 100 years of hard use, soapstone can be re-finished to a new state as though it had just been installed.
Quartzite is a stone of choice for people who love the look of marble, but want something that is not as delicate. The appearance of quartzite can decline, however, with exposure to improper cleaning agents, improper application of coatings, or accidental damage.
Slate is a waterproof, stain-resistant natural stone preferred for its dark, earthy tones and classy, rustic texture. Slate can scratch or chip more easily than other natural stone. Heavy waxes, floor finishes, soap residue, and aggressive cleaning may cause slate floors to become unattractive. We specialize in restoring the desired finish and color to slate floors.
Engineered stone - quartz surface restoration
Quartz Surface, also knows as Engineered Stone, is a manufactured product. It is very durable but when it does become scratched or damaged it needs someone that is uniquely trained to restore it. Fortunately, we are trained and skilled to fix scratches and restore a good as new look.
