We used Sungloss for a commercial lobby project in Milwaukee after the local stone refinisher was not able to adequately restore the finish of the 50 year old travertine slabs. Upon a recommendation from Stone Source, I contacted Mike P. from Sungloss Marble Co. who sent a small crew to do a test area for us and the difference between the Milwaukee crew and Sungloss’s work was night and day. Sungloss not only restored and brightened the original travertine, but were quick and careful with their job. We were very pleased with the difference that Sungloss made in giving the old stone new life.

A stunning combination of white marble and black granite make this floor a beauty to behold and somewhat of a challenge to maintain. Different procedures are needed for granite and marble refinishing. This limestone floor was improperly sealed by the installer causing ugly streaks. Sungloss subsequently stripped the sealer, deep cleaned the floor and then resealed it properly. This Mexican terra cotta floor was restored by deep cleaning first and then applying a top coat seal to bring back the shine of the worn-off glaze.
