Limestone

We can restore the timeless beauty of your limestone floors and surfaces.

If the limestone on your floors, walls or countertops has become dingy and dirty-looking, contact Excel Stone and Tile Care. We can restore your limestone, and give it a high-gloss or a matte (honed) finish, according to your preference.  The diamond pads, abrasives and powders we use are the best available, and our qualified technicians are armed with the latest technology, giving you the best possible results.

We service both residential and commercial customers, and our services include post-construction cleaning, sealing, and recommendations for maintenance according to your specific needs.

Damages Repaired

The calcium in limestone makes it susceptible to etching, that is, a chemical reaction to acidic substances such as cleaners, lemon, or vinegar that roughens the surface. If you have this or other problems such as chips, scratches, stains, or dull spots, it’s time to call Excel Stone and Tile Care.  We can take care of any issues with your limestone, including grout problems, repairs and cleaning.

Uneven Floors Flattened

Unevenly set tiles, or lippage, can cause a safety hazard and diminish the beauty of your installation. We can minimize the risk of trip and fall mishaps by grinding the offending stones down. The result is a uniform, flat surface, which is then honed or polished to the type of finish you request.

Follow-up Care

Limestone, a sedimentary rock usually composed of calcium carbonate fossils, is more porous than its cousin, marble, and more susceptible to staining. We can recommend or provide cleaners that are safe for your limestone and educate you on its proper care.

Here are some suggestions to keep your natural stone looking like new:

  • Dust mop or vacuum with a soft bristled brush
  • Clean up spills immediately
  • Clean with a neutral pH cleaner
  • Always test any cleaner in an inconspicuous spot
  • Remember that some latex backed area rugs my discolor your stone
  • Area rugs with a rough or course backing may scratch your stone
