When installing a new marble surface or restoring a marble, marble tiles can be higher and lower than each other and should be corrected. At NYC Stone Care we provide lippage removal services to remove those rough ledges from your surface and flatten everything to a flat level.
Lippage Removal Process
- The first stage in the diamond grinding process is to remove this lippage so that the floor is completely even and flat at the grout lines. This is achieved with metal bonded diamond plates which coarsely grind away at the stone leaving it flat but with a very rough finish.
- The next step is to repeat the process with finer grades of diamond which are resin bonded. Each grade of pad is progressively finer which serves to remove the scratches which are left in the stone by the preceding grade. The number of grades which are used depends on the type of stone and what finish is required.
