Marble, travertine and limestone in showers is susceptible to the same issues that it faces on countertops and floors. Its maintenance needs in a shower is always higher because of the moisture rich environment. Constant exposure to water, soap and shampoo can degrade a finish rapidly. Common to natural stone showers are drip marks that don’t seem to clean off, water spots and an overall dull finish compared to when it was installed.
To solve these issues we treat the stone on the wall the same as we do on the floor or countertop. We have to diamond refinish the each tile face to remove the imperfections then repolish or hone it to the customer’s desired finish.
