Dull, Etched Marble Vanity

This twenty year old marble vanity, located in Rancho Santa Fe, had not been professionally maintained. Signs of use and wear were apparent. The finsh looked dull, and there was etch damage from cosmetic overspray and improper cleaners. The original finish had all but disappeared.

Our Marble Refinishing Process

Marble honing is a wet sanding process our professional stone restoration technicians routinely use to remove surface damage, and it was the first step in our refinishing process for this marble vanity. Once a very thin layer of stone was removed, it revealed a brand new layer of stone underneath. We then used progressively finer grits to achieve a beautiful polished finish. We also applied a premium impregnating sealer to inhibit staining.
