San Diego refinishing and restoration (stripping, cleaning, and resealing) of Saltillo tile pavers, Mexican Pavers flagstone pavers, slate, quartzite, saltillo pavers, terra cotta, lincoln pavers, ceramic, and porcelain tile. We use Low VOC product s for the stripping and cleaning process which is where most of the labor is done. We first will strip all of the old sealers and dirt build up form the tile or stone, and then clean the tile or stone before the sealing process. For flagstone, slate, and saltillo restoring you do not want to do any sanding when you are working. It is all done by hand. And we make sure to tape off all baseboards and doors. And we can handle any moving of furniture or appliances. Feel free to give me a call and we can discuss your project and set up a time I can come out and give you a free sample of the finish product after the restoration. As well as take some measurements and give you an estimate.
Thanks, Will Arnzen 619-518-2450
