Marble is a popular stone for commercial applications such as hotel lobbies because it exudes elegance and invokes a sense of strength and permanence for the establishment. The property manager of this Clarkston, MI hotel was concerned about lippage, that is, uneven tiles that were posing a trip hazard to guests and patrons. In addition, he wanted the grout joints to be flush with the marble tiles, to give the floor a more uniform, monolithic appearance.
First, we honed the floor with a series of diamond-encrusted pads to grind down the marble tiles until they were even with the grout lines. Then we performed our high-quality marble floor polishing services to give the floor a beautiful, glossy shine, as you can see in the image. Notice how your can see the surrounding area in the reflection on the floor, just like a mirror.
The hotel management and staff were very impressed with the results and said the marble looked new, like it had just been installed.
