Restoration services include the Historical Preservation of architectural stone surfaces either interior or exterior that require Refinishing and Repair work. In this process we employ and follow strict Historical Preservation Guidelines to certify the repairs are sustainable for the environment they reside. Thus ensuring the repairs and restoration will last as long as possible.
This service includes the following:
Slab Removal and Repair:
We perform onsite fabrication and re-installation of wall and floor slabs damaged or in need of removal for repair or other construction needs.
We perform Dutchman Repairs to large areas of missing stone. We source like stone materials and painstakingly sculpt pieces to attach and fill missing areas of stone.
Resurfacing of walls, floors and ceilings repaired using the above mentioned methods. This final step returns the stone to the desired finish.
Maintenance Prescription Program
Marble Doctor creates a customized Maintenance Prescription Program for each of our scheduled maintenance clients. Each Maintenance Prescription Program is tailored to the individual traffic pattern of each specific surface. The plan will help avoid the high cost of replacing large areas of natural stone that may crack, spall or break apart when the only care given is washing and waxing. We also work carefully with the on-site staff to ensure the floor is being cleaned and maintained properly between maintenance visits. Here are some benefits of this service:
Marble Doctor will perform routine maintenance to a new or refinished floor for a predetermined period of time. At the end of this term we will revaluate the condition of the floor to determine the best course of action for the future.
On-Site Staff Training:
We will work with the on-site janitorial staff to provide our recommendation for a daily and weekly cleaning and maintenance plan. This will ensure your surfaces look their best in between scheduled routine maintenance visits.
Professional Stone Evaluation
Marble Doctor will visit your site and evaluate your specific concerns and issues with your Natural Stone Architectural Surfaces. We will provide written analysis of the current condition of the stone and required maintenance for the future. This service is helpful when choosing the correct stone for a property's maintenance budget before or shortly after installation.
We will provide On-Site analysis of your surfaces followed by a written evaluation of the stone. Often times we will perform a myriad of tests to the stone with multiple organic compounds to demonstrate the effects they may have on the stone.
