Quality Stone Restoration can produce the brilliance of a high polish, elegance of a satin finish, or the warm, gentle glow of a quality hone.
More than anything, polishing or honing your marble, travertine, limestone, granite, or other natural stone is a matter of personal preference. What do you enjoy looking at most, and what are your maintenance preferences?
Each finish level has its advantages and disadvantages. The higher the polish, the easier it is to clean and keep clean due to its smoothness. On the downside, any etch marks caused by acidic liquids coming into contact with the stone are much more visible due to the contrast of the dull etch mark against the highly polished stone. With a low hone level, etch marks are much less visible due to less contrast.
The disadvantage to honed stone is the maintenance aspect. On a microscopic level, the surface of a honed floor is very rough compared to a polished surface. That additional texture grabs dirt and grime easier, holds on to it better, requiring professional maintenance more frequently.
In short, dirt is generally more well hidden on polished surfaces; etches are more well hidden on honed surfaces. In the end, it’s all about your personal preferences.
