Experience counts.

We have decades of experience restoring and maintaining stone and tile for residential, commercial, institutional, and hospitality properties.

Since 1985 TECHSTONE has maintained a wide variety of surfaces types with a major focus on high quality restoration of stone and tile. This experience has made our company members knowledgeable and capable. Michael Temple and Timothy Kingaby, the founders of TECHSTONE were the first to see a great need on California’s Monterey Peninsula for protecting and restoring natural stone, tile and concrete.

The current owner, Paul Maclin, has expanded to include the Northern California areas of Monterey / Carmel, San Jose, and Santa Cruz as well as Ottawa, ON and Gatineau, QC in Canada. He leads a highly skilled team of craftsmen to ensure that projects are completed efficiently and in their entirety. Stone and tile installations receive the careful attention to quality that signature architectural elements deserve, whether they are in elegant homes or commercial buildings. Paul Maclin and the regional team leaders can advise on maintaining a variety of stones and is a source for specialized equipment and materials.

Aesthetic and practical reasons underlie the choice of specific stones for specific installations. There is never a cookie cutter approach to projects at TECHSTONE. Paul’s knowledge of both the stone and the context yields superior results. High traffic areas, high humidity areas, and sanitary food preparation areas each receive the appropriate treatment. For example, working with porous limestone is not at all like working with dense granite. Each receive individual and unique treatment plans. Likewise, black marble and green marble are very different from other marbles and TECHSTONE is one of the few companies with the specialized equipment and methods to restore them. TECHSTONE provides the restoration suited to the material and the context, including limestone entries, marble showers, granite counters, terracotta floors, terrazzo, concrete, slate and field stone, and brick. Although most architectural stone may be perceived to be virtually indestructible, the appearance of all stone deteriorates from soil, wear, improper cleaning, harsh weather, pollution and numerous other hazards. Proper restoration increases an installation’s lifespan and its beauty. TECHSTONE provides professional evaluations, consultations and restorations.
