Polishing marble floors is a thorough process requiring careful work in order to achieve the best results.

Q: What is the difference between marble and granite?
A: Appearance wise, granite and marble are largely similar. However, upon close examination, granite variations appear as flecking throughout the stone, while marble variations appear as colorful veins. When it comes to durability, granite is known to be more resistant to chips and scratches, but it all boils down to the type of marble/granite surface that you choose.
Q: What is the difference between quartz and marble/granite?
A: Quartz countertops aren’t entirely natural – they are artificially constructed. The composition of quartz is relatively uniform, resulting in lesser natural flecks and veins when compared to marble or granite.
Q: What is the difference between polished and honed marble?
A: Polished marble has a shiny, glossy finish. It is smooth and has a coating that acts as a protectant. Whereas for honed marble, it has a flatter finish and is less reflective. A scratch on a honed surface is less noticeable than on a polished surface. However, honed marble is more susceptible to stains as the stone pores are closer to the surface. Both marble types are suitable for most applications, depending on your preference.
Q: Which is cheaper – granite, marble or quartz?
A: It depends. The pricing of these surfaces depends on many factors, which include brand, thickness, size and even different variations of the same surface. Thinner or cheaper cuts of surfaces can result in poorer quality and lower durability, so contact us for a proper quote of a surface that suits you best!
Q: Which material lasts the longest?
A: Being naturally porous stones, granite and marble must be sealed properly to prevent staining. At Fine Work, every solid surface processed by us is sealed and polished to perfection before installation or handover. Marble and granite have been used as building materials for centuries, and their use in the most luxurious places, hotels and residences are testament of their beauty and resistance to time.
Q: How long will my stone products last?
A: Stone products such as your countertops can last a lifetime. This means that after the installation, with proper maintenance and care, they never need to be replaced. If you have stone products that need reparation, contact us and we can help you fix it!
Q: How do I take care of my stone surfaces?
A: Regular maintenance such as removing dirt, grit and other materials on the stone surface is necessary, as with any other surface tops. These materials can potentially cause tiny scratches on your surface. Occasionally clean the surface with a damp cloth, and neutral cleaners when necessary. Spills should be cleaned immediately and refrain from having acidic liquids such as fruit juice, coffee and red wine stain your stone surfaces. Lastly, remember not to use bleach, vinegar or any acidic cleaners as that may result in degradation of your surface.
Q: Why has my stone surface lost its shine?
A: Spills that are neglected will cause stains and damage to your stone surfaces, just like any other surface materials. Hence, it is important to always clean spills immediately. If your stone surface looks dull and worn out, contact us and we can help you with polishing to restore its shine.
Q: How durable are stone surfaces?
A: With proper handling and care, stone surfaces are an extremely durable choice that is well-made and structurally sound. Used as building materials for centuries, stone surfaces are known for its beauty that lasts through long periods of time.
Q: Can my damaged stone surface be repaired?
A: The quick answer is yes in most cases. With our years of experience and craftsmanship, we are able to devise solutions to make good such blemishes or damage. Tell us more about the problem so we could devise a customised solution.
Q: How do I polish stone surfaces myself?
A: There are many DIY methods to polish solid surfaces which can be found online. But there are professionals like us, who have more than 40 years of experience doing this professionally. Leave it to us to manage this for you.
Q: How do I avoid staining my stone floors?
A: To avoid stains, make sure you keep acidic liquids and stain-causing materials from spilling on your marble surfaces. If that happens, carefully dab out and clean the spills immediately. The sealant applied on your stones helps to protect your marble floors, but depending on your length of use and foot traffic on the stone surfaces, sealants may have to be reapplied every now and then.
Q: Is maintenance of my stone surfaces easier as compared to other floor materials?
A: To maintain the appearance of your floors, all materials would require some form of maintenance. Stone floors in particular, require specialised care and proper cleaning to maintain its lustre. With proper care, your beautiful stone floors can last a lifetime without replacement.
