Repair Marble Countertops

Updated:2013-11-21 17:01:49

There are several ways to repair marble countertops, depending on the type of damage to the marble. While some damage like water stains are fairly easy to repair, other damage requires more specific efforts.



Method 1 – Waxing

Regular waxing will restore the shine to marble. Waxing will also create a protective barrier on the surface of the marble to prevent additional damage from scratches or water.

Method 2 – Varnishing
Cover the surface of the marble countertop with a coat of polyurethane varnish. Similar to waxing, applying polyurethane will create a protective barrier for the surface of the marble countertop. Also, varnish restores the shine to the marble.

Method 3 – Epoxy Sealant
For small cracks, use an epoxy sealant. This material can be found at almost any home improvement center.

Clean the surface of the countertop thoroughly and let the area dry. Apply the sealant to the cracks, using a clean damp cloth to remove any excess epoxy. Let the epoxy dry and then lightly polish to a bright sheen.

Method 4 – Tin Oxide
Use tin dioxide to repair scratches and stains to the surface of the marble. Tin dioxide can be purchased at monument stores or building supply retailers. Tin dioxide is also called grade polishing powder.

Apply the power to the marble countertop with a piece of felt fabric. Gently rub it into the surface of the marble until the scratch or stain is removed.

Method 5 – Epoxy Adhesive
For broken or chipped places on the marble tile, carefully remove the chip or broken piece. Thoroughly clean the area with acetone and a clean cloth. Apply a thin layer of epoxy and then carefully reapply the chip or damaged piece. Wipe away any excess epoxy. Let the adhesive dry and then wax the area or apply polyurethane varnish.
