Travertine Step Repair in California

 

Sureshine recently completed a step repair. This step was broken by the impact of a large, heavy object. The break was compounded by the absence of  the right amount of setting material to support the step. If the base under the step was fully covered, the damage would have been much less extensive. Our repair encompassed the resetting of the multiple piece in the large broken area, Applying epoxy to the seam between the two pieces to keep them as tight as possible, and filling the large chip that you can see on the left side of the break.

This repair was a total success. It would have been nice if the customer had been able to keep the large piece that broke out on the left side, but at Sureshine we have some pretty amazing technicians who were able to match this surface rather well. The customer called him a miracle worker!

Etch and Scratch Removal on Travertine Floor – Polishing out an etch

When it comes to scratch and etch removal you are good hands. Ted McFadden has created more than 50 informative videos on youtube to show you how it’s done, not just the results. Our more than 1100 subscribers are constantly asking questions about how to refinish marble, travertine, and limestone. A recent request from a gentleman in Canada asked how a large etch could be removed from one floor tile without having to refinish the entire floor.

While the result was not exactly like the surrounding floor. The refinished area looks more smooth and new, it will blend quickly with the surrounding area and become invisible.
