Concrete & Marble Transformerz Concrete & Marble Transformerz Tue, 13 Mar 2018 22:20:41 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Natural Stone Myths Busted Thu, 01 Mar 2018 21:45:15 +0000 Whether you currently have natural stone in your home or you’re thinking about purchasing a home with natural stone furnishings, you’ve probably heard a few myths about the care and costs of maintaining natural stone surfaces.

Myth #1: Natural Stone Surfaces Require Expensive Maintenance

Granite, marble, limestone, and travertine surfaces are found in a variety of Los Angeles homes and businesses, and each of these natural stone surfaces is slightly different in its maintenance demands. Perhaps you’ve furnished your home with elegant marble floors in a high-traffic area, or maybe your business’ lobby is furnished with an older travertine surface. While stone surfaces in high-traffic areas such as lobbies, hallways, and kitchens will require sealing and cleaning more frequently than less used areas, the annual upkeep costs of these surfaces is minimal.

Regardless of whether your business is furnished with natural stone surfaces, you’ll already be hiring a floor polisher to keep your floors looking pristine for your employees and customers. Natural stone floors such as concrete and marble require special chemicals when they’re being polished, but the cost will not be significantly higher than the cost required to polish tile or to clean your carpet. If you have stone countertops in your home, you can expect to invest in semi-annual stone sealing; however, if you can afford a home furnished with stone countertops, the costs of stone polish will not be a significant burden on your wallet. You should also keep in mind that it’s always cheaper to pay for stone sealing and polishing than it is to pay for stone restoration!

Myth #2: Stone Countertops Can Withstand Heat

You may have heard that you can place items from the oven or the stovetop directly onto your stone countertops. While it’s true that marble and granite countertops are incredibly sturdy, they’re not invulnerable. Heat shock is a phenomenon that occurs when a hot object is placed on top of a cool surface, and stone countertops can be damaged by heat shock if you run your air conditioner throughout the year. Most Los Angeles residents use their air conditioners during the summer, and setting a hot object from your oven on your cool countertops can leave them with heat rings and noticeable signs of damage, including discoloration. Even if you’ve set hot objects on your stone countertops in the past without any issues, we recommend investing in cookware designed to accommodate high-temperature items. As we noted in the previous section, it’s better to play it safe when it comes to your stone countertops. (It’s also much cheaper!)

Myth #3: Stone Sealer Lasts as Long as the Warranty

While this claim isn’t obviously false, it’s not true in a variety of cases. The short answer is, “it depends.” Some stone sealers will come with a warranty that lasts for 10 years, but your specific circumstances will dictate the length of time you can go between sealing your stone surfaces. Many warranties don’t cover substances such as ammonia, wine, and citrus juice spills, and these are some of the most common causes of damage to natural stone surfaces! If you have natural stone in a high-traffic area or you have children that frequently spill drinks and food on your stone countertops, you should probably be investing in stone sealing more frequently. If you’re unsure about your specific needs, contact a member of Concrete & Marble Restoration for help! We’d be happy to help you come up with an individualized stone sealing plan.

Myth #4: Concrete Won’t Look Good in My Home or Business

While we don’t do concrete installations, we frequently hear that concrete surfaces have deterred both home and business owners from purchasing certain properties. This myth is completely understandable, as none of us would want a property furnished with the rough concrete that constitutes Los Angeles’ sidewalks and driveways. However, the concrete used in residences and businesses can be polished and stained for a beautiful, glossy effect, and it can also be matched to virtually any decorating style.

If you’re considering purchasing a property furnished with indoor concrete, don’t let that fact deter you from making the purchase! Concrete & Marble Transformerz offers a variety of concrete services, including concrete polishing and staining. We can help you turn your indoor or outdoor concrete into a work of art. All you have to do is contact us for more information!

We hope that this article has clarified some of the myths you may have heard about natural stone care and maintenance. We’ll continue to revisit this topic in future posts, so stay tuned for even more natural stone myth busting from Concrete & Marble Transformerz!

Caring for the Limestone in Your Home Fri, 23 Feb 2018 21:26:03 +0000 Limestone is a beautiful sedimentary rock that is formed from minerals and sediment that are compressed under the sea. Limestone is a beautiful addition to any home, and many California residents have chosen to furnish their homes with limestone floors and countertops. Though limestone is an incredibly durable material, it is not impervious to cracks, chips, and stains. In today’s post, we’ll explain everything you need to know in order to care for your limestone floors. Concrete & Marble Transformers is a Top Rated Local® restoration company in Los Angeles. We provide floor cleaning, concrete polishing, marble cleaning, and so much more! Contact us today at 562-206-2729 for a free estimate!

The location of the limestone in your home will inform you about the amount of care you should expect to put into it. If you have your entire home furnished with beautiful limestone floors, you will want to pay careful attention to high-traffic areas like the kitchen and hallways. If your kitchen countertops are adorned with limestone, you’ll want to seal them regularly to protect them from stains and scratches that could be caused by cooking.

Properly sealed limestone surfaces will have a glossy and smooth look, and you can check to see if your limestone needs to be resealed by looking for dull areas that aren’t as smooth and shiny as others. If you’re not sure about whether your limestone needs to be resealed, you can always contact our restoration company for an inspection! Contacting a professional to seal your limestone is always a good idea, as sealing a dirty limestone surface could leave you stuck with a grimy and murky finish.

No matter where you have limestone in your home, at some point, you’re bound to spill or drop something that has the potential to damage your natural stone surface. Areas like the kitchen and dining room are particularly vulnerable to spills and drops, and you should always be prepared to immediately clean up a spill when it occurs. Cleaning a spill off of your limestone floor is fairly easy, all you need is warm water and non-acidic soap. Use a soft cloth to clean up the liquid, and then gently dry the area with a soft towel. Some beverages are more likely to harm your limestone surfaces than others, and the main liquids you should watch out for are coffee, soda, acidic juices, and red wine. If you discover that your floors do seem to be stained, don’t hesitate to call our stone cleaning company for help. We can come to your home and clean your limestone, and contacting us as early as possible will give you the best chance of eliminating the stain.

If you happen to drop something on your limestone surfaces, it’s likely that your limestone will not be significantly damaged. As we noted at the outset, limestone is an incredibly durable stone, and this is why it’s commonly used in homes with children and high levels of foot traffic. However, you shouldn’t panic if you discover that your limestone has been chipped or cracked because of a drop. Our restoration company can polish and buff out chips and cracks, and when we’re done, you’ll have a hard time believing that anything happened in the first place!

We hope that this information will help you take care of the limestone in your home. If you have any questions about limestone maintenance, or if you would like to have our Top Rated Local® restoration company clean and seal your limestone, call us today! You can reach us at 562-206-2729 or through our website. We look forward to speaking with you.

Tips for Protecting Your Marble Wed, 21 Feb 2018 22:04:42 +0000 Marble is a beautiful addition to any home. It is commonly used to furnish kitchens, bathrooms, and it is even used as an opulent flooring option in luxury homes. Marble is expensive to install, and the last thing you want is to have to spend even more money on replacing a recently installed marble surface. In today’s post, we’ll give you several tips that will help you protect the marble in your home. Concrete & Marble Transformerz provides a variety of Top-Rated Local® marble services for residential and commercial clients, including marble cleaning, marble polishing, and marble restoration. If you’d like more information about what we can do for the natural stone surfaces in your home or business, call us at 562-206-2729 or contact us through our website!

You’ve probably heard the saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” and this is an adage that holds true when it comes to your marble surfaces. Marble is a porous stone, and an unsealed marble surface will easily become stained from liquids and grease. Coffee, wine, acidic juices, and oils are particularly damaging, so you should be especially careful if you are working around unsealed marble in your kitchen.

Sealing your marble surfaces is your first line of defense against stains and physical damage. Marble sealing should be performed by an expert, as it’s important to ensure that the coating is spread evenly and covers your entire surface. However, you should note that sealing the marble in your home will not make it impenetrable; acidic liquids, wine, and coffee will still soak through if they are left on your marble surfaces. Use coasters and clean up spills immediately in order to protect your natural stone surfaces as much as possible. You can check to see if the marble surfaces in your home should be resealed by placing a few drops of water on them and checking to see if they bead. Beading is a good sign, as it is an indication that the sealant is acting as a barrier between your marble and the water. When the water spreads out instead of beading, you should contact a restoration company to re-apply a sealant. You should also ask about marble polishing, as this can provide your marble surfaces with a glossy finish that is sure to impress anyone who sees it.

As we noted above, marble is often used in the kitchen, and many homeowners will set hot pots and pans on their marble surfaces while they cook. While particularly tough sealants may allow you to set extremely hot objects on your marble surfaces without damaging them, it’s best to be cautious when it comes to heat. Heat can eventually wear down the sealant on your marble, and hot objects will cause the marble to become discolored when you place them down. We recommend that you invest in cookware designed to handle hot objects, as this is far cheaper than restoring or repairing the marble in your home!

Many homeowners have marble surfaces for their kitchen islands and bar areas, and an easy way to protect these surfaces is to invest in coasters and placemats that you and your guests can set glasses and dishes on. You’ll be surprised at how easily water collects on your marble due to condensation, and years of wear and tear from dinner parties and entertaining guests can lead to expensive maintenance costs.

We hope that these tips will help you protect the marble surfaces in your home. Whether you have marble countertops or beautiful marble floors, we’ll help you protect and restore them to their original beauty.

Common Forms of Granite Damage Wed, 21 Feb 2018 21:10:54 +0000 Granite is one of the most beautiful natural stones you can adorn your home with. Available in a variety of colors, granite surfaces can complement virtually any aesthetic style. Whether you already have granite surfaces in your home or you’re thinking about remodeling an area of your home with granite, it’s important to protect your investment. In today’s post, we’ll review several causes of granite damage, as well as the signs of granite damage you should be looking for. Concrete & Marble Transformerz proudly provides epoxy services, marble restoration, and granite restoration in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas. Call our restoration company today at 562-206-2729 to schedule a free estimate!


Granite is commonly used to furnish kitchens and other high-traffic areas because of its durability and resistance to stains, but it is not completely stain-proof. Granite, particularly when it is unsealed, is still somewhat porous, and liquids that are not cleaned up in a timely matter will soak into the stone, causing it to become stained. Some liquids are more damaging to granite than others, and you should be especially careful to avoid spilling the following liquids on your granite surfaces:

  • Acidic/Citrus Juice
  • Red Wine
  • Coffee
  • Oil

Granite sealing can protect your granite countertops or other surfaces from stains, so contact our restoration company today if your granite needs to be sealed!

Chips and Cracks

As we noted in the previous section, granite is often used in kitchens and high-traffic areas because of its durability. However, it’s precisely because granite is used in high-traffic areas that it is susceptible to physical damage over time. Guests will inevitably set an object on your granite countertop with a bit too much force, or you may have accidentally chipped your granite surface while cleaning. Regardless of how careful you are, chips and cracks are likely to form over time. The good news is that your granite countertops or surfaces can be restored, even if they have been chipped or cracked. Chips in your granite surface can be polished to the point that you usually won’t be able to see them without looking closely, and you may not even notice that the surface was chipped at all.


As we’ve noted throughout this post, granite is an extremely durable material, and the only substances that will actually scratch your granite surfaces are stones that are harder than granite. If you notice streaks or lines on your granite surface, this is probably a sign that your granite needs to be polished and sealed. It’s incredibly unlikely that you will scratch your granite surfaces unless you slide rings or jewelry containing precious stones across your surfaces.

Heat Damage

Granite is generally a heat resistant material, but it can be damaged if you set hot pots and pans directly on your countertops. Properly sealed granite will be able to withstand high levels of heat, but it’s always best to be cautious with the natural stone surfaces in your home. Investing in cookware that you can rest your hot pots and pans will be significantly cheaper than restoring or repairing your granite countertops.

We hope that these tips will help you protect the natural stone surfaces in your home. If you currently have granite that needs to be polished or repaired, or if you have another natural stone surface that needs restoration, contact Concrete & Marble Transformerz today! We’ve helped hundreds of Los Angeles homeowners restore their stone surfaces, and we would love to help you with yours.

Acid-Based and Water-Based Concrete Staining Wed, 24 Jan 2018 16:59:30 +0000 You’ll be forgiven if you’ve never heard the expression “stained concrete.” The thought of furnishing a home with concrete can evoke images of sidewalks, garages, and driveways, and this is understandably off-putting to many people. However, you’ll be surprised to learn that stained concrete is one of the most affordable and effective ways to add color and liveliness to your home.

In this blog, we’ll lay out the basics of concrete staining by explaining the differences between acid-based and water-based concrete staining. Concrete & Marble Transformerz has been providing concrete services to Los Angeles and Orange County for more than five years. Read our reviews and contact us today for a free estimate!

Concrete in the Home

As we noted above, concrete is a cost-effective way to embellish the decor of your home. The reason that concrete is used in driveways, sidewalks, and garages is that it’s an incredibly tough material. Think about the use and abuse your driveway and sidewalks take on a daily basis – they don’t scratch or dent easily, and having that kind of durability in your flooring can add a lot of value to your home. Concrete flooring is the ideal material for families with young children, as it can withstand spills, drops, and actions that would easily damage other kinds of floors.

Staining – What is It?

Stained concrete is the definitive separation between the concrete found in a garage and the concrete found in a home. The color scheme of every element in a room should harmonize, and the color and style of a floor is one of the largest, and consequently most important, elements of a room.

Concrete staining is a cost-effective way to incorporate the color tones and the theme of a room into the flooring. Concrete can be stained to match granite, marble, natural stone, and nearly anything else! Depending on your aesthetic preferences, you can stain your concrete to look like it’s been around for decades, or you can stain it for a sleek and modern look; the versatility of stained concrete can be almost staggering!

Water-Based Staining

We won’t get too technical here, but water-based staining is referred to as a “non-reactive” process. This means that staining your concrete with a water-based solution is basically like painting a wall – a water-based stain penetrates and sets in the pores of the concrete, which produces a beautiful coating. One of the benefits of water-based staining is that it typically results in a more even and consistent application of both opaque and translucent colors than acid-based stains.

Acid-based Staining

Acid-based staining is, as you might have guessed, referred to as a “reactive” process. Acid-based stains react and form bonds with the concrete they’re applied to, which usually results in deep tones and marbling effects. As we noted in the previous section, water-based stains tend to produce a more consistent and even effect, but the uneven and marbled effect of acid-based stains can be attractive depending on the room’s aesthetic qualities. It’s all a matter of taste.

Proper Concrete Maintenance

One of the benefits of stained concrete is that its color is durable and it will likely last for many years. That being said, it’s important to maintain and take care of stained concrete by getting it regularly serviced. The amount of foot traffic a floor receives will affect the frequency of required maintenance, and a stained concrete professional can help you determine how often your stained concrete floors should be serviced.

To protect the colors in your stained concrete, you should have your indoor floors regularly waxed and you outdoor floors coated with a strong sealant. Exterior stained concrete requires just a bit more maintenance than interior concrete flooring. Protecting the integrity of your stained exterior concrete involves regular sweeping, waxing, and mopping if you notice that the surface is particularly dirty. The easiest and most convenient way to ensure that you’re taking the best possible care of your stained concrete floors is to hire a professional.

All About Epoxy Wed, 24 Jan 2018 16:33:24 +0000 Epoxy products are similar to duct tape in the sense that they can be used for nearly anything. Epoxy products can be used to coat floors, walls, and it can even be used as a sealant! In this blog, we’ll explain some of the ways that you can use epoxy products to improve and maintain the furnishings in your home. Concrete & Marble Transformerz has provided top-notch epoxy coating services to the Los Angeles and Orange County areas for more than five years. Contact us today for a free estimate!

Concrete Sealant

We explained how attractive stained concrete can be in another blog post, and we also stressed the importance of proper stained concrete maintenance. Epoxy sealants are one of the most effective ways to ensure that your interior and exterior stained concrete stays in excellent condition. If your concrete flooring has been damaged, epoxy resurfacing can mask chips, cracks, and other eyesores.

One of the benefits of concrete flooring is that it is incredibly resilient. That said, interior floors tend to have a much higher volume of foot traffic than exterior floors, and it’s important to protect your concrete flooring from the wear and tear of everyday life. Applying a water-based epoxy to your concrete floor is one of the most effective ways to protect it, as water-based epoxies bond incredibly well to concrete. Using a glossy epoxy on a floor can add an element of richness and sophistication to your concrete flooring that staining alone cannot. Epoxy is now available in a metallic gloss that many homeowners and businesses find highly attractive.

The process of applying epoxy to your outdoor concrete is slightly different, but an epoxy coating is ideal for exterior concrete surfaces. Epoxy and concrete are both known for their durability, and combining the two basically guarantees that your concrete will last you for years to come. Epoxies can turn slightly yellow when exposed to high levels of UV rays, so you’ll need to be sure that you choose an epoxy designed specifically for outdoor areas. California can be both extremely sunny as well as wet and rainy, and epoxy can help to create a non-slip environment, which is perfect for hosting guests outdoors and for providing a safe environment for children. Hiring an epoxy specialist to help you resurface your outdoor concrete ensures that your concrete is properly maintained.

Garage Floors

The garage is arguably the dirtiest room of any home. Grease, dirt, and the elements can all collect in one area, and because the garage typically serves as little more than a passageway from the car to the inside of the home, regular cleanings don’t tend to be a priority. Hiring a professional to apply an epoxy coating to your garage floor is a great way to make the job of cleaning your garage as easy as possible. Epoxy coatings resist grease, dirt, and other substances that typically soil and stain garage floors, making it easy to clean your garage on a regular basis.

It’s important to find out if your garage floor is emitting moisture, as this can affect the quality and effectiveness of an epoxy coating. While most epoxy coatings can withstand a substantial amount of moisture, contacting a garage floor epoxy expert to inspect and apply an epoxy coating to your garage floor is the best way to ensure that nothing goes wrong. Not only will enlisting the help of a professional protect your garage floor, but it will also protect your wallet!

Taking Care of Your Stone Floor Wed, 24 Jan 2018 16:11:26 +0000 Taking care of the floors in you home can be difficult. While the flooring in your house can add tremendous decorative value, it is inevitably one of the hardest elements of the home to care for. Spills, dirt, grime, and the normal wear and tear of everyday life can ruin carpets and wood floors. For this reason, many homeowners choose to furnish their homes with natural stone floors. California is notoriously hot in the summer months, and stone floors can provide a naturally cool surface to walk on. In this blog, we’ll explain how to care for and maintain four types of stone flooring. Concrete & Marble Transformerz has provided professional stone restoration and cleaning services to the Los Angeles and Orange County areas for more than five years. Contact a member of our friendly staff today for a free estimate!

Types of Stone Floors

You may be surprised to learn that there are several different types of stone floors, including, but not limited to:


Marble floors are known for being ornate, sophisticated, and durable. The kitchen is one area in which spills and drops have the potential to seriously damage marble floors, and they will consequently require special care and attention. While marble can add an elegant look to your home, marble floors can be slippery if they are not coated with a non-slip substance. Moreover, failing to regularly seal your marble floors puts them at risk of being damaged by dirt and liquids. If you have marble floors, Concrete and Marble Transformerz can keep them clean, safe, and preserved for years to come.


Granite is a harder stone than marble and it makes for a long-lasting addition to high-traffic areas of a home. Unsealed granite flooring can add a rustic and natural element to a home, but it can also leave your floors vulnerable and unprotected. Spills, drops, and heavy traffic can all damage an unsealed granite floor, and sealing your granite floor is therefore highly advisable. Sealing your granite regularly is the best way to preserve the quality of your floor. Given that granite comes in varying grades that homeowners may not be aware of, hiring the services of a restoration expert is the best way to ensure that your granite is properly maintained.


Like granite, limestone floors are remarkably durable and they can add a natural and elegant look to any home. Just like marble and granite, limestone is a porous rock, and this means that it will require regular sealing in order to protect it from stains and scratches. Regularly sealing your limestone floors will preserve the integrity and beauty of your investment.


Travertine is one of the most common materials you’ll find in homes with natural stone floors, and it’s easy to understand why. It is cost-effective and durable, as well as easy to replace if it gets damaged. Much like marble, travertine is quite porous and sensitive to acidic substances. Enlisting the help of a professional to seal your travertine floors will make it difficult for liquids, including acidic ones, to penetrate and damage the floor. Travertine floors should be sealed as soon as they’re installed, and you should plan on having them inspected and resealed periodically.

The take-home message from our review of these four popular stone floor materials is clear: regular maintenance is essential to preserving the quality and integrity of your floors. While rugs and mats can provide some protection in high-traffic areas, they cannot protect your floors from accidental spills and drops.

Granite and Marble – What’s the Difference? Thu, 18 Jan 2018 15:10:48 +0000 Granite and marble have quite a bit in common: they’re both highly valuable materials sourced from the earth, they’re both used in homes and commercial properties, they’re both commonly used in kitchens and fireplaces, and they can both add a substantial amount of value to your home. It is often easy to identify granite and marble – marble is generally veined, while granite tends to be flecked with different colors. Furnishing a home with either of these materials as an investment is rarely regretted, but are you familiar with the differences between the two? While granite and marble can seem very similar at first glance, there are several important differences between the two.

In this blog, we’ll outline some of the main differences and some of the most important differences between granite and marble. Concrete & Marble Transformerz has been providing granite and marble cleaning and restoration services to Los Angeles and Orange County for more than five years. Don’t wait to take care of the marble or granite in your home – contact us today for a free estimate and protect your investment!


Granite is classified as an igneous rock, meaning that it forms within the earth’s surface as it cools from a magma-like state. It’s composed primarily of feldspar and quartz, and granite often has mica and other minerals in it that can be noticed in the various textures and appearances found in different granite slabs. Typically, granite’s color is off-white or gray, though rare forms of granite have layers of red, green, and pink throughout them.

Granite is more durable than marble, meaning that it will be less likely than marble to chip, stain, or break. For this reason, granite countertops and floors can be a great option for households with young children. Though granite is less likely to stain than marble is, granite is a porous stone and must be treated with care. Red wine and acidic substances such as coffee and lemon juice can seep into granite, causing stains and damage. Granite tends to be lighter in color than marble, and for this reason, it’s extremely important to have your granite furnishings regularly serviced and maintained. Hiring a professional granite cleaner is the most effective way to ensure the longevity of the granite in your home.


Marble is classified as a metamorphic rock, meaning that it’s the result of a transformation of an already-existing rock due to pressure and high levels of heat. It’s primarily composed of calcite, micas, quartz, pyrite, and graphite. Marble has a variety of appearances, including off-white, dark gray, red, and light green. As we noted above, marble is softer than granite, meaning that it’s more easily stained and damaged. While this shouldn’t be taken to imply that marble is inferior to granite, it should prompt some thought regarding where you’ll be installing marble in your home. Many families with young children opt to install marble in areas of the home without much traffic, which can help to ensure the longevity of their investment.

Marble can be easily stained, especially if the marble is light in color. Marble can transform a kitchen into a welcoming and beautiful room in your home, but marble in the kitchen requires a bit more maintenance than granite does. Red wine, heat, and acidic substances can quickly and easily damage marble. Many homeowners don’t mind their marble having a “bit of character,” from decades of use, but damaged marble can affect the value of your home. Most spills won’t damage your marble countertops or floor, but stains left untreated can soak into the stone’s pores, causing irreversible damage. For this reason, it’s essential to hire a professional marble cleaning service if you currently have, or are thinking about installing marble in your home.

These are just some of the main differences between granite and marble. If you have granite or marble in your home, it’s essential that you protect your investment by practicing proper granite and marble maintenance techniques. Hiring a professional granite cleaning or marble cleaning service is the best way to ensure that you’re protecting your investment. If you’re interested in granite cleaning or marble maintenance services, don’t hesitate to contact Concrete & Marble Transformerz in Los Angeles!
