Is the travertine in your home collecting etch marks or losing its luster? If so, it may be time to schedule an appointment with the hard surface restoration experts at Sir Grout of Greater Boston. The Sir Grout Professionals are highly qualified to resolve any problems you may be having with any travertine surfaces in your home.
We offer the following travertine services, each of which is sure to bring new life to any tired-looking travertine:
- Refinishing (polishing and honing)
- Filling Holes
- Etch Removal
Travertine is a unique stone that comes in a couple different forms. Travertine comes in what is known as filled and unfilled. Travertine naturally has holes that run throughout the stone, and when left this way, the stone is considered unfilled. The filled travertine is exactly what it says—the holes are filled—giving the stone a smooth finish.
Travertine can come in either a honed (matte finish) or in a polished finish. These finishes need to be cared for and will from time to time need honing to remove scratches and etching, or will need to be re-polished and sealed. As can be seen in the picture above, Sir Grout of Greater Boston offers services that will keep your travertine looking like new. We can clean, hone or polish, and seal your travertine. If you desire, we can custom finish your travertine to the finish of your choice. From time to time holes will become exposed in the filled travertine, and we can repair these holes and restore your travertine back to its original splendor.
