Fabric and Tile Masters is Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra’s premier service for the care and service of Natural Stone surfaces including:
These surfaces require a variety of treatments that are determined by the use of the stone and the environmental, chemical and physical forces they are subjected to.
We Professionally Care For All Types of Stone Floors
Their viability often hinges on their instillation procedures, and the adjacent underlayments.
Marble for example is subject to light scratching and is reactive to low pH chemicals like vinegar and lime juice. Granite is impervious to both of these factors. Granite often needs to be cleaned, polished and sealed.
Each of these stone surfaces are used for floor tiles, interior and exterior cladding for walls and in showers, and counter tops in kitchens and bathrooms.
Examples of these refinishings include:
- Floor restoration for natural stone includes using abrasives to remove edges of the tiles that are uneven and need to be “flattened” to light restorations that include acid etches and light scratches. Restorations include achieving honed as well as polished finishes. These restoration require using diamond abrasives and polishing compounds.
- Wall refinishing are always focused almost exclusively on the shower walls. Showers are subject to acid etching from improper cleaning chemicals that dull the surface, as well as, soap film and mineral deposit buildup.
- Counter top refinishing includes kitchen counters and bathroom that are subject to the same damages as those listed above. In some cases when used in kitchens cooking oils can penetrate into the surface and need to be removed using poultices.
At Fabric and Tile Masters we are able to diagnosis the problems with your natural stone and through our exclusive process return it to its original factory finish.
This work is done in the most cost effective manner possible. The advantage for customers who use Fabric and Tile Masters comes in the way of our promise to you that we will always use the required diamond tools to achieve a finish that will be durable. There are no shortcuts for us, and the benefit for you is a far better value because the finish will hold its restored luster far longer.
We have an extensive equipment inventory that includes several diamond grinders. Several of these are Italian made Klindex. They are the best grinders made and have planetary attachments that can refinish your marble better than mono rotary machines used by our competitors.
Fabric and Tile Masters also are expert and repairing stone surfaces. We can remove old grout and caulk and replace them. We patch missing fill from stone surfaces with mortars and colored epoxies and polyesters.
Shower repairs are a specialty for us because we have the equipment to clean them with high pressure heated chemicals. After cleaning we are able to remove caulk and grout and replace them with the correct product and color.
Cleaning porcelain and ceramic tile is a specialty of Fabric and Tile Masters. We heat water using a 260,000 BTU burner that helps our chemicals clean tile and grout to the highest level possible. We can remove oxidized oils, old sealers, mineral deposits, grout haze and other everyday tracked-in dirt or even garage oils.
While tile and grout cleaning and stone refinishing represents the bulk of the work we currently process, we still are a source for carpet, upholstery and drapery cleaning. Upholstery cleaning is still a specialty of ours. We have experience with white fabric and silks other cleaners are reluctant to clean.
Our work comes from a variety of sources—but we are proud to say that the bulk of our work comes from referrals from satisfied customers. Referrals also come to us from an extensive list of interior designers, stone fabricators, tile distributors and retailers, contractors, tile installers and carpet retailers provide referrals to their customers.
We are also members of the Better Business Bureau of Northeast Florida. We have an A+ rating!
