Exterior Stone and Tile Care
Natural stone, tile, pavers, and other surfaces that are exposed to the sun, wind, rain, pollution, dirt, grime, and temperature changes become diminished in appearance and take away from the elegance of back yard living spaces, patios, and outdoor kitchens. If a general dirty appearance persists, even after cleaning, or if you see etching, scratches, or dullness, then it's time for professional attention. At Michigan Stone and Surface Care, we are experienced in restoring the beauty of your outdoor surfaces. We also take pride in protecting the area surrounding our work site, including your landscaping, fencing and home.
Cleaning & Sealing
Fallen leaves, muddy run-off from lots of rain, mold and mildew excited by high humidity, and other factors can leave your exterior stone and tile in poor condition. We can deep clean your surfaces and apply the most appropriate sealer to help minimize future staining and excessive moisture absorption.
Mother Nature follows no rules but her own, and when it comes to exterior stone and tile surfaces, stains happen, particularly on porous or unsealed surfaces. Fortunately, Michigan Stone and Surface Care can remove most stains to your satisfaction.
Sometimes a cloudy film or powdery residue will appear on exterior stone. This problem, called efflorescence, is caused by moisture drawing mineral salts from or through your surface material and then evaporating, leaving salt deposits behind. Michigan Stone and Surface Care has the specialized knowledge to address and resolve your efflorescence issues.
Crack & Chip Repair
Extreme changes in temperature, shifting of the supporting structure, and rough wear can create chips and cracks in your outdoor surfaces. Missing or damaged tiles or pavers not only diminish the appearance of your patios, but they could actually affect the entire structure. We can repair or replace loose or broken pavers and reset sunken or dipped pavers so that you can continue to enjoy them for years to come. Our proven repair methods expertly fill chips, cracks and holes and then hone these spots, returning them to their original condition.
Your pool decks and patios, outdoor kitchen areas and more deserve the same care and attention as the fine surfaces under your roof. Michigan Stone and Surface Care is here to help you keep you exterior living spaces in the same great condition as your interior ones.
