Breathing New Life Into Your Limestone
Limestone is a calcium-based stone and can become damaged (etched) by acidic substances. It is susceptible to scratching from tracked-in grit, and dulling from grime and wear. Fortunately, we are experts at dealing with these sensitive types of stone. If your limestone needs restoration due to dullness, scratches, etching, cracks, chips or other damage, we can get it tip-top shape in no time.
Limestone that has become dull and damaged will need professional services to restore its natural beauty and keep it looking its best. At Tennessee Stone Care, we know what it takes to make your limestone surfaces look sensational. If your limestone is dirty or dull-looking, scratched, etched, cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged, don’t replace it!

Lippage Removal / Grinding
Are your limestone tiles uneven? Do you want your tile floor flattened to the grout lines to facilitate easier cleaning? Tennessee Stone Care can grind away the excess stone (a process called lippage removal) to create a flat, level surface using state-of-the art diamond grinding technology. Once ground to the level and shape desired, the limestone is honed and polished to the finish you want.
Do you have chipped limestone tiles? Are there cracks in your floor? What about broken limestone tiles? Before you replace your limestone, consider having us provide expert limestone repair services. Tennessee Stone Care can fill holes in limestone, fix limestone cracks and chips, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your limestone floor, countertop or other stone surface.
Although it is rare for a limestone tile to be beyond repair, sometimes tile replacement is necessary. Tennessee Stone Care craftsman can, in many cases, remove your affected tile without damaging neighboring tiles, reinstall the new tile, level the installed tile with the surrounding are, and then match the finish as closely as possible.
Tennessee Stone Care can remove limestone stains, as well as limestone discolorations. Whether you are seeking guidance on how to do this yourself or want Tennessee Stone Care to treat your limestone, the original finish of your stone can be restored.
Cleaning and Sealing
Limestone cleaning processes vary based on the surface condition and type of dirt or oil being removed. Limestone is easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. Once your limestone floors, showers, tub surrounds, walls, and other limestone surfaces are cleaned and restored, we highly recommend you have us seal them to enhance their stain resistance. All stones (unless resined) are naturally porous. If left unsealed, there’s always a risk of spilling a colored or reactive liquid, discoloring your stone. While most stains can be removed, limestone stain removal can be a time consuming, expensive and often frustrating process. Sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against limestone stain damage.
At Tennessee Stone Care we can instruct you on the proper care you should use in cleaning your limestone on a regular basis. We offer a full line of Care Products to assure you are using the proper cleaning product that will help keep your limestone surfaces looking great. We also provide a regularly scheduled maintenance program, upon request.
