Granite Cleaning, Sealing, Repair, and Restoration - Birmingham AL
Expert Granite Services
Granite, one of the world’s hardest materials, is a stone of choice for kitchen countertops and floors, not only because it is gorgeous, but because it is resistant to most acids, very durable, and easy to maintain. Even so, granite is not impervious to damage. If your granite is dirty or dull-looking, scratched, etched, cracked, chipped or otherwise damaged, we can make it look brand new again! We provide services throughout much of Birmingham AL. (See our Service Areas page.)
Granite Service Overview
Much harder than marble, granite is a rugged and resilient stone that requires specialized knowledge and equipment to restore. We understand granite’s unyielding qualities and have the right tools and techniques to get it looking its absolute best once more. From minor services like having your granite floors or granite countertops polished to major services like a complete granite floor or granite countertop repair and restoration, our professional technicians can perform these services for you.
OUR Granite SERVICES
|Refinish||Granite granite floors and surfaces that are too dull or too shiny can be refinished to whatever finish you prefer: gloss, semi-gloss, matte, or custom.|
|Hone||Honing virtually erases dull areas on granite associated with wear patterns, scratches, etches and spots.|
|Polish||Polishing your granite using the appropriate diamond-infused pads or polishing powders is the final step of the refinishing process. Our expert technicians can achieve the exact finish you are looking for.|
|We can grind away excess granite to create a flat, level surface if your granite tiles are uneven or if you want your tile floor flattened to the grout lines to facilitate easier cleaning.|
|Repair||Don’t replace your damaged granite! Chips, cracks, and breaks can be repaired using adhesives, fillers, and specialized equipment. We can hone and polish to match the repair site with the existing finish.|
|Tile Replacement||Our craftsman can, in many cases, remove an unrepairable granite tile without damaging neighboring tiles and reinstall a new tile.|
|Stain Removal||We’re here for you, whether you are seeking guidance on how to remove granite stains and discolorations yourself or you want us to treat them.|
|Clean and Seal||The more porous your granite is, the more susceptible it will be to staining. We professionally deep clean using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions, followed by an application of high quality sealer, if needed.|
|Maintenance||Regularly scheduled maintenance is customized per your specific needs and requirements.|
Unlike many other services, we can’t quote a price per square foot. There are too many variables to consider. How bad is the damage? What kind of damage is there? What level of sheen are you looking for? All of these things, and more, need to be factored in to give you an accurate and fair quote. We do provide free estimates and will be happy to discuss your specific needs. Call (205) 540-4559 or contact us online for a call back.
We recommend safe and effective cleaning products for you to use on a daily or weekly basis.

Some natural stone types are more porous than others, and the more porous a natural stone is, the more susceptible it is to staining. Your granite will be easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using highly-effective cleaning solutions. Once your granite is cleaned and restored, we may recommend you have us seal it to enhance its stain resistance. We say, “May” because not all stone needs to be sealed. Highly polished stone may not even take an impregnating sealer. But, if sealing is recommended, know that sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against stain damage, because it buys you time to wipe up spills before they become stains.
