2 Main Reasons for Marble Steps Replacement

1. A crack or step with a large chip, has to be replaced as fast as possible. It’s become very dangerous to have such a piece. Tenants can get a serious injury as usually it’s weak and loose. Urgently after a damage detection, a warning sign or caution yellow tape should be placed above the step. Since it’s a property owner’s responsibility to maintain and take care of building facilities, he should be informed immediately.

2. Worn-out steps – steps that lose their shape and thickness. Such steps cannot be restored in full and can be improved or replaced only. A goal of such replacement is the improvement of appearance.

2 Main Steps Locations in a Building

Marble steps in the foyer or lobby. Such steps are most exposed to traffic and will be faster worn out by daily wear and tear. There are also more chances to be cracked or chipped.

Staircases or threads marble steps. They are getting less traffic but often can be broken. In most cases, it happens while moving when movers hit a heavy object such as furniture to a step or its edge. Often it can be cracked or chipped by contractors who carry their tools or materials to an apartment or for example roof.

How We Are Doing Step Replacement

1. First we’ll review a step and determine a kind of stone

2. Take a measurement or make a template if needed

3. Place a fabrication order in a stone shop

4. Pick up and delivery

5. Demolition. To remove the old marble we use tools such as a cutter, hammer, and chisel. To avoid other damages it should be done with extra care as it is surrounded with marble. Old marble steps will be crushed into small pieces and trashed.

6. Installation. Depending on the place we can set a step with cement, thin-set, epoxy, or caulk. A step can be cut and shaped to exactly fit the place. In most cases, it’s ready to step on in one hour and work completed in one day. The least traffic time is always preferable.

Outdoor steps are usually made from granite or granite blocks and more often should be cleaned or restored than replaced.

    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!
