Everything You Need to Know About Slate Maintenance and Restoration Services

If you need to have your slate surface maintained and/or restored, it is essential that you choose a company that specializes in natural stone. You might find any type of cleaning company, pressure washing company, or even a landscaping company that claims they know how to provide these services, but this is a delicate stone that should be left to the professionals like Fuller Stone Care.

The First Step is Generally Cleaning

The good news about working with Fuller Stone Care is that we believe every job is unique and should be treated as such. That is why we do not simply look at a form and follow the directions. We look at your slate, determine the best methods to move forward, and follow those steps. In most cases, the first step is to thoroughly clean the slate surface.

We can do this by using our pressure washing equipment that we perfectly adjust to a hot yet safe temperature, and strong yet safe pressure. The goal is maximize cleaning power that can get rid of dirt, mildew, algae, and any residue left behind by previous surface treatments, without worry about damaging the slate surface.

We Can Remove Stains, Repair Cracks and Chips, and Much More

Next, we will look to get rid of any spots that are still there after cleaning. You might be surprised by how many “stains” were actually just dirt or watermarks we were able to remove during cleaning. If you have severe stains, and depending on what the staining agent is, we might recommend buffing with a diamond abrasive compound. Otherwise, we might use a specialty product to lift out the stains.

Likewise, if you are dealing with crack and chip repair, we can help with that too. We can even help beautify natural surface imperfections. You can trust that we always use high-quality epoxy that is first tinted and polished to match the stone you have. The result in a repair that is virtually invisible to the naked eye.

Most Maintenance and Restoration Projects End with Sealing

Regardless of the type or level of work required to get your slate surface in great shape, we are likely to recommend sealing at the end. Why? Because it helps ensure that the restoration work we did will last as long as possible. Do not trust just any company to do this, and do not choose an all purpose sealant at your local hardware store. This is a specialty project that requires the help of professionals.
