Honed Marble Kitchen Island and Marble Armor Installation
Updated: Aug 6, 2021
White marble is used in kitchens because it looks better than any other surface. Homeowners choose marble tops with an expectation of them needing maintenance. Unfortunately even if sealed with an impregnating sealer, stone may and often does stain and etch. Food items such as coffee, wine, lemon juice and improper cleaning chemicals will etch or stain the surface requiring the entire countertop to be refinished.
We were contacted by a local homeowner in Fairfax, Virginia who had recently renovated their kitchen but quickly realized that their beautiful white Carrara marble island was showing extreme etching in a short period of time. To solve the issue, Rose Restoration refinished the countertops to a honed finish to remove all of the stain and etches. We then applied Marble Armor, a thin protective film that will prevent any stains or etches from happening in the future. Now that Marble Armor has been applied the homeowners no longer have to worry permanent rings or marks on their countertop!
Marble Armor is an option and does not have to be applied after refinishing. Some customers choose to allow the surface to etch over time and refinish the stone more often. For stone owners who want total protection no one else can offer, Marble Armor is the answer.
