TECHSTONE resolves travertine problems
If your travertine is dirty or dull-looking, scratched, etched, cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged, don’t replace it! TECHSTONE can restore your travertine, not just making it look better, but making it look brand new again.
Travertine comes in what is known as filled and unfilled. What this means is that travertine naturally has holes that run throughout the stone. With unfilled travertine, the holes remain exposed for a rustic, earthy finish. With filled travertine, the holes are filled in, giving the stone a smooth finish.
Travertine comes in a honed (matte finish) and a polished finish. These finishes need to be cared for and will from time to time need honing to remove scratches and etching or it will need to be re-polished and sealed. TECHSTONE provides services that will keep your travertine looking like new. We can clean, hone or polish and seal your travertine and give it a custom finish. From time to time, holes will become exposed in filled travertine. We can repair these holes and make your travertine look new again.
We provide expert interior and exterior travertine services, for all kinds of properties, from homes, apartments, and condos to offices and other commercial properties, warehouses, retail stores, restaurants, hotels, and more. Whether you need minor services like having your travertine cleaned and sealed or major services like a complete travertine repair and restoration, we provide a full range of travertine care and maintenance services.
Floor too dull or too shiny? Call TECHSTONE and specify the finish you need. If you have a new floor with some tiles that look more glossy than others – let TECHSTONE even out the finish for you. Whether you have or are seeking to acquire a gloss, semi-gloss or matte finish, TECHSTONE can deliver a beautifully restored travertine finish.
Travertine Grinding / Travertine Flattening
Are your tiles uneven? Do you want your tile floor flattened to the grout lines to facilitate easier cleaning? TECHSTONE can grind away the excess stone to create a flat, level surface using state-of-the art diamond grinding technology. Once ground to the level and shape desired, the travertine is honed and polished to the finish you want.
Does your travertine floor have dull areas associated with wear patterns, scratches, etches or spots? TECHSTONE can hone your travertine surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new travertine surface free of damage. With our travertine honing services, our expert technicians can achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth.
An uneven finish, dull spots or etches can diminish the elegant appearance of your travertine floors. TECHSTONE can polish your travertine using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to restore the finish you want, whether matte, semi-gloss or gloss finish. With our travertine polishing services, our expert technicians can achieve a beautiful, glass-like polish.
Impregnating / Sealing Travertine
Once your travertine floors, showers, tub surrounds, walls, and other travertine surfaces are restored, we highly recommend you have us seal your travertine to enhance its stain resistance. All stones (unless resinated) are naturally porous. If left unsealed, there’s always a risk of spilling a colored or reactive liquid, discoloring your stone. While most stains can be removed, travertine stain removal can be a time consuming, expensive and often frustrating process. Sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against travertine stain damage.
Deep Cleaning Travertine
Travertine cleaning processes vary based on the surface condition and type of dirt or oil being removed. Travertine is easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. However, once wear sets in, creating hollows and low points for dirt to collect, your travertine can become difficult to keep clean again. TECHSTONE can assist you in not only cleaning your travertine surfaces, but in keeping your travertine properly polished, maintained, and free of scratches to help make regular cleaning and care of your stone easier.
TECHSTONE can remove deeply imbedded soiling, strip away years of buildup of unsightly topical treatments, remove soap film in showers, and get rid of soot on fireplaces, and resolve a host of travertine cleaning problems, leaving your stone as pristine as the day it was installed.
Travertine Stain Removal
TECHSTONE can remove travertine stains and travertine discolorations. Whether you are seeking guidance on how to do this yourself or want TECHSTONE to treat your travertine, the original finish of your travertine can most likely be restored.
Do you have chipped travertine tiles? Are there cracks in your travertine floor? What about broken travertine tiles? Before you replace your travertine, consider having TECHSTONE provide expert travertine repair services. TECHSTONE can fill holes in travertine, fix travertine cracks and chips, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your travertine floor, countertop or other travertine surface.
Travertine Holes Filled
TECHSTONE can fill holes in travertine, a process called “travertine floating,” to give unfilled travertine a smooth appearance or to repair filled travertine with holes that have become exposed. We use tinted filler and then blend the repair site with the surrounding area, honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your travertine.
Travertine Tile Replacement
Although it is rare for a travertine tile to be beyond repair, sometimes travertine tile replacement is necessary. TECHSTONE craftsman can, in many cases, remove your affected tile without damaging neighboring tiles, reinstall the new tile, level the installed tile with the surrounding are, and then match the finish as closely as possible. Unless you have an extra tile from the original lot to install, replacement tiles will likely be noticeably different. Even if you purchase the same tile by name from the same quarry, the quarry line has shifted and with that so has the color. Have no fear, our professional technicians have the knowledge, experience, and skills to get your travertine looking sharp again.
Travertine Grout Restoration
An often-overlooked but critical part of your travertine floor or wall construction, grout lines must be in good shape before we can work with your stone. Whether your floor has sanded or non-sanded grout, TECHSTONE technicians can clean, restore, repair, and regrout as needed to restore a new appearance to travertine floor or wall.
Color Enhancing Travertine
For certain types of travertine, our skilled technicians can apply an enhancing sealer to intensify the color and enrich its natural beauty.
Regular cleaning and janitorial services are valuable for simple, day-to-day care of travertine floors. But over time, their processes leave floors with grout lines that just won’t come clean, shiny scratches, and increasingly obvious traffic patterns. As these problems develop, you become more and more dissatisfied with the appearance of the floors until it’s time for another round of professional restoration. With our regularly scheduled maintenance program, your floors can look great all the time, without the need for periodic restoration.
