Stone restoration or replacement – which is best?


Natural stone surfaces can make your home look its very best. While most types of stone are extremely durable, they are not immune to wear and tear. No matter how well you take care of them, time will eventually take a toll. This makes some wonder whether they should restore or replace their stone surfaces. Here are some points to consider.

What repairs can be made

Some of the most common types of damage that can occur include cracks, chips, etching and stains. Only if the damage is extensive, the stone surface might need to be replaced. However, in most cases, repairs are the faster and cheaper option.

Cost differences

The cost of repairing or restoring your natural stone surfaces can prove to be significantly cheaper than a replacement. Remember, it is always best to have a professional perform any repairs or restorations. Attempting the repairs yourself can make the damage worse and require additional effort to rectify.

Saving time

As briefly mention, repairs will not take as long as a replacement. This is because you will not need to remove the worktops. All repairs can be done on the spot without moving anything other than whatever is on the worktops.

With these benefits of restoration in mind, it is always a good idea to maintain a realistic perspective. There are some types of damage, like deep cracks that are best replaced. In some cases, you might only need to replace a portion of your worktops. For example, if the damage affects your kitchen island, you don't have to replace all of your worktops since the stone used for the island does not have to match the rest of your surfaces perfectly.
