ClearStone® Stain and Etch Protection
Developed in Australia, Clearstone® is a self-leveling polyester resin designed for use on table and bar tops, benchtops, and bathroom vanities. Because it is nonporous, it provides excellent protection against bacteria. Offering a full 10 year manufacturer’s warranty against etching and staining, Clearstone® is an excellent alternative to a recurring maintenance program, where you pay year after year to have your stone refinished and resealed. It’s no wonder Clearstone® has garnered international recognition as the first choice in stone protection from architects, designers and consumers.
Sealing and Protecting
Some natural stone types are more porous than others, but, generally speaking, all natural stone is susceptible to staining. That’s why it’s important to have your natural stone sealed, particularly benchtops or bar tops, which are most likely to get something spilled on them. Whether you’ve had your natural stone tops forever and it’s time they were re-sealed, or the contractors just finished installing them, or somewhere in between, Set-In-Stone Restoration can professionally clean and seal them, making them resistant to stains and giving you time to clean up.
If you find yourself with a stained top, don’t hesitate to contact us. We can resolve most stains in all types of natural stone and get your benchtops, bar tops, vanity tops, etc. looking beautiful again.
Scratch & Etch Removal
Some people mistake etching for a stain or “water spots.” Many foods and drinks are acidic, and many types of natural stone are acid-sensitive. When acids cause a chemical change in the texture and appearance of stone, the result is etching. Fortunately, our skilled technicians can remove this damage, as well as scratch marks and dullness, and refinish your benchtops to like-new condition. We will also educate you in ways to prevent this kind of damage, such as always using cutting boards, preferably ones with a groove around the edge to prevent overflow of liquids.
Crack & Chip Repair
Pots and other cooking implements can be heavy and no matter how durable the stone, if you drop something on it at just the right (or the wrong!) angle – bang! Now you’ve got a chip. It’s the sort of thing that can stand out on an otherwise pristine benchtops and just drive you nuts! But it doesn’t have to. Set In Stone Restoration can repair most chips and cracks in a seamless manner.
Honing & Polishing
Can you tell what part of the benchtop you work on most because it’s duller than the rest? Our honing and polishing services can restore the evenly polished glory of your benchtops, change that highly polished finish to a honed (matte or satin) one or vice versa, delivering just the look you want.
