Check out this countertop recently refinished by Zoltan Stone Works! We were hired to restore a badly scratched and etched kitchen countertop in Potomac, MD. Underneath all of the damage, the Rosso Verona marble (a name is derived from its producer city of Italy and Rosso means “Red”) was beautiful piece of stone. Rosso Verona is a very popular marble because of its beautiful red color and ability to take on a high luster. The marble has a high hardness and is widely used for stairs and flooring purpose. This is one of the more rare marble varieties.
Our marble counter was deeply etched and scratched so we employed a full 4-step restoration. This stone tends to shine up really nicely, but you can’t rush the process.
4 Steps of Stone Restoration
1. Grinding the stone is the first and most mechanical process in marble restoration, also known as lippage removal or flattening.
2. Next we hone the marble surface to smooth it using industrial diamond pads.
3. Polishing the marble gives the correct sheen to the surface of the stone.
4. Finally we buff the marble to bring out the mirror-like shine.
The end result? The client was thrilled!
