Zoltan Stoneworks recently completed a project in a turn of the century building in northwest Washington D.C. The lobby of this 1908 condominium had a vintage white marble mosaic bordered with red Tennessee tile. The floor of the lobby had not been restored in decades and it looked like grey porcelain. The marble had also settled into a wavy surface and with many cracks.
Unfortunately we were not able to use the traditional diamond pads to resurface the tile. We needed to use a vortex pad which is spongy and allows the diamonds to reach the high and low areas. Vortex pads are excellent to use on uneven floors. We began with the lowest number diamond pad to buff out the scratches and then worked up to using the highest diamond pad. The final step required a polishing powder to produce a high gloss. The client was very impressed by the transformation of the lobby.
