We deliver our Marble Floor Polishing, Marble Cleaning, Sealing and Polishing Services to Commercial and Residential Clients in Dublin, Meath, Wicklow and Kildare area.
Many of our clients use the phrases 'marble cleaning' and 'marble polishing' interchangeably. We have run across a number of clients who believed that the dull look of the marble, terrazzo or travertine floor can be removed by cleaning.
Cleaning the floor using our cleaning process makes the floor look significantly better. In fact, the grout lines are often brought back to 80% of brand new. However, if the floor is dull, more than likely you will need a travertine, marble, terrazzo diamond polishing and sealing process.
Marble and Limestone are soft stones available in many colours with beautiful veining. Although some Marble floor tiles are harder than others. The fact is that any Marble floor can become scratched, etched or lose its shine and lustre if it’s not maintained properly. Whether it is routine marble tiles polishing, floor scratch removal or extensive marble floor restoration, we avail the most efficient and effective procedures to obtain the desired results on your marble, travertine or terrazzo floors.
Travertine is a stone that adds character and appeal to the floors of any home or business. If your Travertine floor has become dull, stained, scratched, etched, chipped, or otherwise damaged, we can restore its antique elegance, whether flooring, showers or other surfaces.
Some people prefer the finished appearance of filled Travertine tiles, in which the natural holes that run throughout the stone are filled with colour-matched epoxy and then the surface is honed or polished. These holes can become exposed in time. Our qualified staff will fill the holes again and restore the finish. We can also resolve any other problems that may occur, such as cracks, chips, or scratches appearing on your Travertine tiles.
Fortunately, Terrazzo floor can be restored using the same process that is used to restore Marble and Travertine floor tiles. Terrazzo contains Marble chips of different shapes and colours, held together with a cement, resin or epoxy base. Any Terrazzo floor can be restored to its former state. As the nature of Terrazzo floor composition allows the top layer to be removed, revealing the undamaged surface underneath. CM Graniteworks will restore, polish, and repair your terrazzo floors. We will also recommend the proper care products to keep your Terrazzo floor looking like new with minimum maintenance.At CM Graniteworks we work with Natural Stone, including: Marble, Terrazzo, Travertine and Limestone.
As granite and quartz become more popular options for kitchen, the frequency of calls we receive to repair these surfaces also increases.
Granite and Quartz is one of the hardest materials for home interior and should not scratch, chip or crack during normal use - installation processes can by anything but typical.
We commonly repair scratches and chips caused when large appliances were installed on or adjacent to counters during construction or remodelling.
Cracks and Chipped Edges often occur inside the sink hole or on the edge of the counter when a heavy pan or a hard object hits it.
You can minimize this by being aware and being careful. Chips can also occur during fabrication and installation.
Most home-owners get really upset when this happens. But do not worry!
Stone can easily chip along edges because those tightly formed minerals get knocked off during cutting or handling. In all cases chips under 1 inch can easily be filled and blend in with the stone.
Most chip repairs will not be noticed.
Have you bought a second hand granite countertop for your kitchen worktop?
Or you just want to move your old stone elsewhere? Look no further! We will cut, polish and install it to your requirements.
This service is usually carried on site /no transportation costs involved!/ and takes one working day from the beginning to the final outcome.
Please contact us to discuss your project.
Broken edges can occur for many reasons. Some reasons are: Applying excessive weight on the counter top, settling, caulking coming out at the sink/stone joint allowing water intrusion under slab, natural weathering, transportation or installation.
Most of these reasons can be prevented or minimized through common sense and simple prevention techniques.
However if your granite is damaged already, before replacing it contact CM Graniteworks about the possible repair options.
Stains can be a serious issue. Stains are a discolouration of the stone that doesn’t normally appear in other areas.
This can be tricky sometimes because stone often has a significant amount of colour variations and movement in it and we sometimes think it’s a stain, but quite possibly its part of the stone or a shadow from the light.
Common staining areas include, around sinks and hobs, splash backs and kitchen flooring. If you are sure the discolouration is a stain, get it addressed right away.
Delayed treatment of stains can be permanent.
Sinks may periodically need adjustment or replacing.
When sinks are under constant use, supports can weaken and the sink may lower a few millimetres or more.
As the sink lowers, a gap will occur between the sink and the stone allowing water to get under the stone. Undetected water intrusion may cause serious and costly damage to the kitchen unit and your stone.
Have CM Graniteworks reinstall it before costly repairs to the stone are needed. Sometimes sink replacement is required.
Our experience and understanding of stone make us the premier choice when you need your sink replaced.
Over the years you might need to change your water tap, install pop-up socket, add insinkerator button or just run the phone wire through your counter.

CM Graniteworks offer a wide range of B2B services.
We provide repair/re-installation services related to unprofessional stone installations.
If your granite, quartz or marble was installed incorrectly or damaged during the process then this is the time to give us a call.
Natural marble is not as hard as granite and tends to stain and scratch very easily. Therefore, it is more commonly used for vanities and fireplaces than in kitchens.
If the marble has become dull over time, we can re-polish the surface to bring back the original shine.
At CM Graniteworks, we not only perform these services, we can instruct you on the proper care you should use in maintaining your marble.
Sealing your granite or marble surface is one of the many things you just need to put up with if you want to own this type of countertop.
When you think about it, it really should come as no surprise that granite and marble needs to be sealed. It is like any other organic material.
Wood has its grain, stone has its porosity. Perform the paper towel test to determine whether your granite needs to be sealed. Some types of granite worktops never need sealing and adding sealer to these types will just make a mess.
Soak a paper towel (without printing) or a white cotton towel. Place the water-soaked towel on the counter and wait about 5-10 minutes.
Is the area under the paper towel dark from the water soaking into the granite? If it is discoloured then your granite needs to be sealed to resist water-based spills and stains.
In this case do not hesitate to give us a call.
Recently window sills and splash-backs have become a very popular addition to granite worktops.
Not only are they practical with low-maintenance, they also visually enhance the overall look of your kitchen.
On your request we can add a splash-backs and window sill to your granite, marble or quartz counter-top.
No matter the colour, we will match it for you! Please contact us to discuss your options.

"I would wholeheartedly recommend Wojciech Czerwinski and CM Graniteworks - I got a preloved worktop cut and changed to fit my kitchen - he managed to source an extra piece I needed which is a perfect match and charged a fraction of the price I was quoted from wholesalers (they all said you couldn't possibly reuse granite!). He and his colleague Pawel were punctual, tidy and very nice to deal with. The price we paid was very competitive and I was very happy with the result."
"Wojciech Czerwinski came to our house in Howth to try and solve our problem of fitting our new cooker into a narrow gap between granite worktops. Having looked at all the alternatives, Wojciech proceeded to grind back the worktops and the edge of the cabinets.He worked quickly and tidily, and when finnished did a fine clean up. Wojciech was friendly and helpful, and did an excellent job. The Gas fitter who came to fit our cooker also commented on the fine job he had done. I would have no hesitation in recommending Wojciech's standard of work and his neatness when doing a very messy job."
"I urgently needed two recesses cut from granite piers so not to hold up the installation, after searching the web I discovered CM Graniteworks, specialists in cut granite. Wojciech Czerwinski agreed to cut the granite and arrived on site at short notice and cut the two piers precisely as requested which was a delicate and intricate job.
The finish perfectly matched the original machine cut to the point of not knowing they were later hand cut. Wojciech is passionate about his work and offers a professional and efficient service. He also offered advice on bonding broken granite from a pier cap and provided complimentary adhesive. I would highly recommend CM Graniteworks for any cut granite or granite repair work."
"I used CM Graniteworks to repair chips on my kitchen granite work top. They did a fantastic job! You would never know. A totally professional company to deal with. I would highly recommend."
"We recently changed our kitchen by installing an AGA. This required redoing the granite worktop around the cooker. The granite needed cutting and refitting. Wojciech Czerwinski called out to our house and carried out this work for us. He was very efficient and skilled. The work he did was done to an extremely high standard and we would whole heartedly recommend him."
"Wojciech repaired damage that was done to my travertine table. He was punctual, clean and very conscientious. The table looks like new! He was very pleasant and would highly recommend his services!"
"Wojciech Czerwinski is an excellent & reliable tradesman. He recently repaired my valuable Carrara marble lamp which has fallen and broken into several pieces. CM Graniteworks managed to put it together - better than humpty dumpty – and now it’s like new again."
"Huge thanks to CM Graniteworks who have just made my day with a superb granite worktop edge repair. The job is outstanding so much so it's difficult to remember where the damage had been inflicted! I'm so relieved and wouldn't hesitate in recommending them."
"We needed to polish and restore sections of marble in the hotel that had gone dull with age. Wojciech was very helpful. His first attempt didn't succeed, however the mark of a true professional, he returned with another method and we achieved a great result."
"We had recently renovated our house and were looking to reinstate a missing section of the slab in front of a fireplace. We had asked numerous people for a solution but most said it would be difficult to do and impossible to match in with the existing piece. We asked Wojciech to come and take a look and see what he thought. He came up with some ideas, took the measurements and went to find a solution.
Returned to make a template and was back in three days where he fitted the new piece millimetre perfect and matched in like it was never missing. We could not recommend his professionalism enough and will certainly be using him for similar works in the future."

Clean your granite worktop with warm soapy water using a soft cloth. Rinse the surface thoroughly with clean water and polish with a soft cloth. If you spill something on your counter top, blot with a paper towel or soft cloth immediately. So do not wipe the area as this can spread the spill. Flush the spill with warm water and detergent and rinse thoroughly. Dry the area with a soft cloth. Properly sealed stone will repel most stains if the spills are cleaned promptly.
When stone has been neglected, you will need to use a heavy-duty stone and degreaser to effectively remove dirt, grease, and grime. These products are concentrated and designed to deep clean without damaging the stone. It's important to follow manufactures instructions carefully.
Most manufacturers seal the stone at the factory. Some of them don’t do it at all, which is a bad practice. The sealant product should last a year. Once properly sealed, the stone will be resistant to water, and most of the oil or fat based stains type. However if you own a bright colour granite or marble you should take extra care. When sealing your counter always refer to specific manufacturer instructions. If you don’t feel too confident about sealing your granite you can contact us to discuss your options.
Hot cooking pots will not damage the surface, however extreme or constant temperature changes may harm your stone. Avoid leaving hot pans sitting on the counter for long periods of time, especially during the winter.
This way you will avoid any spillage, dirt or grease getting into the structure of your stone.
Be aware that creating uneven pressure on your stone worktop might crack it.
While granite is highly scratch-resistant, we recommend you to not cut on it directly. Please note that using a granite surface as a chopping board will also damage your knifes. Please use wooden or plastic chopping board.
Every few years, hire a professional to come in and restore your granite countertop. They will polish, deep clean and seal your worktop. Also repair it if necessary. This is essential for making your granite countertop last a lifetime.
