Polishing Travertine and Honing Marble
Our teams worked hard this past weekend to change the finish for two customers. One customer wanted us to polish her travertine entry floor from a matte or honed finish to a high shine. We do this using our refinishing diamonds and polishing powders. It’s a natural refinishing and polishing method similar to what happens in the processing factory before polished tiles are shipped.
Travertine stone restoration and polishing
Here is our process in action.
When polishing and restoring natural stone, we work hard to create a natural-looking shine, one that looks like it just belongs in your home. This customer is selling their home and wants to wow perspective buyers with this high reflective, clean look. She said she wished she did it last year so she could have enjoyed the new look more.
The final polish looks terrific.
Our other team took a Polished finish to a Matte Finish
We had another project in Huntington Beach where the customer wanted the reverse performed on his kitchen marble counters. Instead of polished marble he wanted a more easy to take care of finish. The team at Sureshine honed this clients marble to a beautiful consistent matte finish using diamond abrasives. It takes a long time and great care to create a matte finish from a polished finish properly. Many other companies use acid to take the shine away. While acid will create a honed or matte finish, Sureshine relies on traditional abrasive methods that will not strip minerals out of the surface.
The team did a terrific job delivering this clients newly honed counter. Check them out below.

You can use a hydrogen peroxide poultice to break down many dyes. You can also use a bleach poultice.
