About Marble Restoration and its Features

Marble restoration in most cases is a time consuming process, and involves using of special equipment, chemicals, sanding and polishing materials along diamond abrasives.

Depending on mineral compositions of natural stone and physical properties the restoration process can be significantly different as well as its cost.

It’s complicated process and cannot be specified as Do-It-Yourself project. It will save your time and money to rely on an expert.

When the marble is fully restored, and achieved a proper finish, only now can be judged the true colors of natural marble, along with complex patterns and veining.

Marble repair in most cases will return marble’s initial condition and can be only one solution for various damages happened during daily usage or accidental damages.

Most Common Marble Damages

Solution: In case you spill such acid liquid, then you have to wipe it off and wash with amount of water or neutral marble cleaner. If marble etching is already happened on surface it can be removed by polishing and buffing.

Marble Scratching. A scratches happened by dragging or pulling any hard objects on surface. On kitchen counter top it can be kitchenware, on floor it can be furniture and sand.

Cracked marble. Marble can be easy cracked when it was improperly installed. For kitchen countertop it may be weak support from bottom side, for marble tiles it can be hollow space under tile. Also cracks often happened during transportation.

    Eugene blew us away with how fantastic our bathroom turned out. We recently moved into an apartment and were disappointed by how poorly the marble stone was kept. A friend recommended Eugene, he was very responsive and professional. You can tell he takes pride in his work. He spent two full days polishing, cleaning, caulking and grouting the entire bathroom and it looks like new. Before he left we asked for a proposal for the kitchen! I highly recommend him and would use him for every stone job we have moving forward.
    He is simply the best.

    The first, I was impressed with how fast they got back to me after asking for a quote. Eugene was professional, fast, and keep his promises. He communicates well and it was very easy to work with him, and I was very pleased. It is very important to me that people who I work with is professional and trustworthy. I can see a long-term relationship with them and am very happy to find them. By the way I found them by looking for an answer on Houzz for my question about my furniture.

    Eugene did right by us! Lowest estimate of several I received, but no corners cut. Very patient answering all my questions by email, super professional and respectful in my apartment, including thorough cleanup, and my counters look great!

    Eugene was great. My contractor ruined our "travertine" floors. Our contractor used the wrong grout and my pale colored stone floors looked dirty. Eugene to the rescue! Eugene scrubbed, polished and regrouted the bathroom stone floor and it looks just the way it was meant to. Eugene told us that the stone was really limestone. He was quiet and went straight to work. I found him to be very respectful. He saw we had new flooring in the house and took off his shoes. Class act. We highly recommend Eugene. Now my family can finally move into our first home.

    Eugene absolutely saved the day for us, and we are so grateful. With only 3 days left to move out of our BK apt, our movers cracked a priceless family heirloom marble dresser top. We were devastated! A friend of mine who does object restoration for museums gave me ABC's website, and Eugene spent a day communicating with me, and came, to our home (in a mask) the very next day and restored our marble on location and in our tight time frame. When he was finished, it was stunning, and we are beyond grateful to him. I hope I never need his services again, but I strongly recommend him to others. At the end, he even helped us correctly package the marble for our move so we didn't need to have the movers risk harming the marble again. We are so grateful to him!
