Stone restoration is the process of repairing natural stone surfaces to their original state through the required means. This can be done on a variety of natural stones including Travertine, Terrazzo, Marble, Granite, and Slate, just to name a few.
The cost of restoring a natural stone surface will vary depending on how the service provider charges – is it a flat fee after a viewing of the job or is based on a meter squared pricing system? Additional considerations impacting the pricing schedule may include ease of access and egress to the stone being restored, availability of electricity and water, the condition of the stone surface as well as when it was last restored. Reputable providers should be able to assess the job and provide you with a realistic obligation free quote.
Most areas in a home could be completed in a day, however the larger the area the more time it would take to complete the task. Additionally, should the stone be in poor condition, this will add further to the time needed to complete the restoration to the required standard. Given the preparation and restoration process, it would be wise to allow two to three days at least for the process to be completed, however, the service provider should be able to provide a more accurate time estimate.
Stone restoration is important in prolonging the life and appearance of your natural stone surface. As such it is best to have this process completed by a reputable professional.
