Boston Stone Restoration brings new life to marble countertops.

Maintaining marble countertops can seem hard, if not impossible. Like an exotic car rolling off the lot, pricey, newly installed marble starts diminishing in value once the installers leave the kitchen. After a few years, the stone begins losing its luster, scratches set in and unfortunate acid etch marks begin to show. While many homeowners will eventually resort to replacing the stone entirely for a costly sum, there is a much easier, faster and far less expensive option to make your kitchen counters rock once again in all their gleaming glory.

Boston Stone Restoration (BSR) has perfected the process of restoring and coating countertops, vanities and bar tops. Wielding cutting-edge equipment, BSR’s team of trained technicians descend upon a kitchen and seal it off from the rest of the house. A sander fashioned with a HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) vacuum then hones away all the scratches and etch marks from the marble before a proprietary coating known as MORE AntiEtch is applied.


Forming a durable, ultra-low visibility, super-thin coating, MORE AntiEtch brings the marble vibrantly back to life while protecting it from future etches and stains for at least the next decade. Clients can choose from a range of finishes such as high-gloss, satin and matte in making their marble look brand new. Cured with a special ultraviolet light, the whole project takes about one to two days, after which BSR leaves your space cleaner than they found it.

This restoration service has become more and more popular in Nantucket homes where the cost of replacing marble is especially expensive and time-consuming. While it’s an effective option for old surfaces in need of a facelift, the MORE AntiEtch coating can also be applied to brand new marble to provide a layer of protection from future etching and staining. In a Nantucket home, where carefree entertaining is a way of life, that protective peace of mind is truly rock solid.
