A Brief History
Who does a 100-year year-old monastery trust to restore the precious marble within their sacred halls?
Just ask George Reed, founder of Marble Doctor and 25 year veteran of the natural stone industry. This is one secret that he is ready to share.
For generations, the Donatelli family passed down the secrets of working with stone and Mr. Reed was personally taught this Old World technique by one of the most internationally known master craftsmen in stone restoration and repair, Joseph Donatelli.
Mr. Donatelli was a third generation Italian who frequently flew back to Italy and other venues in Europe that required his expertise. He soon became a trusted friend and confident to Mr. Reed.
They worked side-by-side for many years and travelled to the stone quarries in the eastern United States and Europe to learn about the many different types of stones and the natural processes in which they form.
Now, George Reed and the staff at Marble Doctor represent some of the most knowledgeable and skilled marble artisans in the D.C. area.
The techniques used by these skilled craftsmen are an art form that a very limited number of people take the time or have the talent to perform.
Marble Doctor has built a solid reputation in preserving natural stone and marble utilizing these same techniques..
