Expert Slate Services
Slate encompasses a wide range of geological characteristics from roofing type quality (which of course is not porous) to other materials (that are quite porous) and can even contain some calcite. If your slate looks dull and unattractive, aggressive cleaning may only make matters worse, but professional slate services can make a big difference. Slate needs to be properly cleaned and sealed after installation and periodically cleaned and sealed thereafter.
Stone shine provides professional slate cleaning and sealing services that can keep the color in slate floors deep and rich and the overall appearance clean and elegant. We can service any of your slate needs, including slate repairs, and achieve the look you want for your slate. We will absolutely evaluate your slate, but in most cases a deep cleaning, with special attention to grout lines, followed by color enhancing and/or sealing will do the trick.
Don’t Let Just Anyone Work With Your Slate
Slate comes in several different textures. There is a smooth slate and a cleft finish, that is, a rough finish. Consequently, slate restoration methods differ from that of other natural stone types, and only experienced, qualified slate restoration technicians should work with your valuable slate investment.
We completely strip your slate, removing heavy waxes, floor finishes, and soap residue that trap dirt, grime, and other contaminants. Then we clean and sanitize your slate in preparation for the finish you want.
There are several different ways to finish slate, including slate color enhancers, topical coatings such as wax, penetrating sealers, and more. The finished look we can achieve depends on your preference — a gloss finish, matte finish, or a low luster finish.
