Polishing Marble Condominium Lobby for a Boston Commercial Property Manager

Your condominium lobby and common area set the tone for the whole property. If the lobby and hallways convey elegance and style, property values goes up…for you and everyone in the building.

Recently a condo building in Boston contacted us via their property management company. We like working for property managers – they understand the value we can bring to a condominium setting.

After a long renovation, the condominium residents wanted to clean their marble steps and polish the black and white marble at their upper lobby. Photos of before and after are above. (You have to click each image to see the full size photo).

They were so pleased the property manager wrote us a letter of recommendation! Click that image, too, to see what she had to say.

If you manage a condominium building with marble stairs or a marble lobby and you want it honed, cleaned, sealed, repaired or polished, feel free to get in touch with us for a free estimate. We’ll email you a quote, stick to it and make you look good by making the marble look great!

Is Your Boston Area Condo Hallway Marble Looking Worn and Faded?

One thing I like about living in an older town like Boston is the original marble floors that were built in the common areas of apartments. Many of these are now condominium hallways and their marble floors were kept to convey luxury and style. Sometimes they’re only in the lobby, but sometimes all the stairs are made of thick chunks of marble, and even the walls.

Unfortunately, after a lot of wear and tear, marble floors start to look ‘beat up’. They attract soil that just can’t be cleaned, no matter how much liquid detergent the cleaning company uses. At some point, they need to be re-honed to sand away the scratches from foot traffic and expose fresh stone.

That’s not a job for an amateur – your cleaning company is wise to pass on it.

Give us a call and we can get it done for you. It involves using diamond honing pads to gently remove a paper-thin layer of the stone. Then we apply clear penetrating sealer to protect the marble.

Frequently, we also caulk or grout the edges of the stairs so the whole job looks fresh and new.

Condominiums can gain value from a stunning looking common area – or they can lose value if it looks beat up and neglected. Make sure you keep the value of your investment high and enjoy your marble the way it was meant to be experienced!

The pictures in this post are from a building in the Brookline area. The owners wanted the marble floor on the steps and lobby to reflect the care they had put into the renovation and restoration of the property. The job was done on a fairly tight schedule, on budget and the results speak for themselves. In this case, they didn’t want a polished, shiny finish – just a clean and honed look and a smooth edge treatment with white caulking.
