Well it's the holidays and we are finally getting some rain!
I hope everyone had a great and safe Thanksgiving.                                                                

With rain you get moss and fungi on the wood, cement, walkways and its always on the north side of the house.  We have a new product line called Bonstone and Touchstone and one of their products that works great on Algea and Fungi is D/2.  The D/2 is the only product that the United States Government uses for its landmarks like The Lincoln Memorial, The White House, The headstones of our fallen soldiers and many other buildings. It also happens to be the safest product for natural stone and masonry surfaces.  This product is very easy to use and keeps working even within a 2 week period after the application.

For more info on D/2, please follow the link below

Every week I get calls on small chip repair and because the the law of state of California requires me to pay drive time to my employees, I have to have a minimum which cost more than the Chip Repair so now I have a chip repair kit for granite and a how to do it yourself video and folks, its pretty easy.  Just check out the link below.

Industry News:



The Marble Institute of America is re working it's restoration and maintenance section for their Design manual and expanding it. This is very important because there is no standards for stone restoration at this time but that is all going to change. Not only are there better recommendations coming into effect but the restoration companies are going to have to know some tile installation methods.

At the start of this venture with MIA, you need to understand that just because one can polish does not make him or her is a restoration specialist. All restoration companies need to know more about problems with sub floors and working shower assembly.  There are stones coming into this country that is not what it claims to be, not to mention dyed black and green stone and very hard slate's that they now call granite because they don't etch.  Eventually, there will be an ANSI standard for these issues in about 3 years and the MIA venture will be out in about 1 year. David is working alongside some of the best and talented restoration experts throughout this country.
