One of the questions we’re asked more than any other by our customers is “Should we go with a honed or polished finish?”

Well the good news is that with MarbleCare your choices don’t end there; we have the equipment and experience to give you any type of finish you want – be it honed, polished, semi-polished or anywhere in between. Also with us you can “chop and change” – want honed floors in the kitchen and polished floors in the hallway? No problem to MarbleCare!

So what finish is best for your floor? It all depends on what you’re looking for – The general rule of thumb is that the more we “polish” a floor the more it will reflect light and shine, giving you a more “showroom” look. This is the finish of choice for our clients looking for a more elegant, “sophisticated” look, and the one the majority of our hotel and high-end residential clients opt for. A honed floor will give a more “natural” look, which, although it won’t shine quite as brightly, has the advantage of not showing up wear quite as much. Because of this it’s often the finish of choice for families with a lot of young children or pets.

Again, we’re happy to do different finishes on different areas, and the really good news is that it doesn’t have to be permanent – a honed floor can be changed back to a polished floor and a polished floor can be converted back to a honed floor. Whatever your choice, MarbleCare has you covered! See our Cleaning and Restoration section for more information on the actual procedures we use. 

Marble polishing, honing and restoration are highly skilled procedures and should not be confused with mere “cleaning”. Inexperienced individuals, such as tilers, carpet cleaners, wood floor refinishers, and others who don’t specialise exclusively in maintenance of marble and stone, can inadvertently ruin a beautiful floor and involve the owner in further expense for professional repair. MarbleCare constantly strives to be the very best at what we do. After decades of experience we use what we genuinely believe to be the very best systems and the finest restoration materials in the world, to ensure you get the very best job and the very best finish, every time. 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEED!
