Slate Cleaning and Care | Stonewood | Houston
It’s a different kind of stone.
Slate is an organic, unpretentious stone that has been trending in recent years. It complements many areas of the home or office and comes in a variety of warm earth tones. Unlike most stones, slate is non-porous, which means it is difficult for liquids to penetrate and stain the surface. Slate's texture can be left natural and uneven, or it can have a smooth, honed finish. It's also more affordable than other natural stone surfaces.
But, slate is softer than granite, and it's not impervious to scratches and chips, especially along its edges and corners. Slate cannot be cleaned and restored in the same manner as other natural stone. The professionals at Stonewood Hard Surface and Restoration are expert stone restorers and educated in identifying and resolving any problems with slate.
