The Marble Miracle!

Dec 1, 2020

Home 9 Coatings 9 The Marble Miracle!

Open any design magazine these days and you are bound to see a variety of white marble used in most of  the kitchens and bathrooms on the pages. And most kitchens have a large island that is the focus of the room, where the family gathers, and the entertaining is centered. The classic, clean look has become a staple in new home construction and renovations projects. Carrara, Statuario and Danby are a few of the most popular marbles chosen for kitchen counters, bar top and vanities. The problem with these marbles is they are extremely soft and acid sensitive, thus susceptible to staining and etch marks (water rings etc).  Many cooking ingredients, vinegar, lemon juice, wine and even coffee can acid etch marble. Red wine, tomato sauce and juices can leave dark pigment stains. Some towns have such a high mineral content in their water, that just a glass that sits on the counter too long can leave a ring.

So, what is a designer or contractor to do? Your client wants the look of natural stone, but also wants the worry-free features of granite or manufactured stone. Fortunately, at Boston Stone Restoration, we have a solution. For several years we have been working with specialty coatings, and we have found the one that we feel gives lasting protection without changing the look or the stone like some of the plastic films that boast the same protection. MORE anti-etch coating is a micro-thin coating this is applied as a liquid, cures with a UV light, and then has the ability to be polished in a honed, satin, semi or high gloss finish. The product has no odor while curing, and there is little or no downtime while installing.

More anti-etch is perfect for kitchen counters, bar tops, marble dining tables, and bathroom vanities. It has a 10-year warranty against etching and staining.  We have installed in luxury homes from Boston, to Nantucket, and at both the Ritz and Four Season hotels. For more information and a complimentary estimate contact Boston Stone Restoration at 781-793-0700.
