Although Natural Stones such as marble & granite are very durable, they are not impervious or indestructible. Sometimes accidents happen and breaks occur. To make proper and lasting repairs, it is imperative to know how the feature was originally fabricated and installed - so that the repair can both match its original appearance and be reinstalled in the most stable condition possible. For HILGARTNER, is also critical for our staff to continually pursue research of new developments in patch and repair materials so that all options are known and can be evaluated for material interaction, effectiveness and longevity. Particularly when driven by finished appearance, there are times where the "right" decision can only be determined by the customer. Educating our customers about available options is fundamental to HILGARTNER's philosophy regarding how your stone's condition may be repaired.
