This is a tough one. There is no easy way to remedy your problem. The best way would be to remove and replace the tiles properly. If in fact the tiles are real marble, you can grind them to create the proper angle and slowly refinish the surface by stepping down grits and finally getting to a wet polish grit of 2400. That is actually impracticable for a DIY ...

Assuming you don't have extensive scratching or damage to your countertops, sometimes a simple acrylic sealer/refinsiher will work great. You will need to clean the tops thoroughly with a non abrasive cleaner and rinse completely. After they are dry, simply apply the acrylic sealer with a lint free smooth cloth evenly over the whole surface. Let this dry ...

I would suggest that to get a really smooth polish you will be using sand paper or polishing pads with grit numbers as fine as 3000 or more. The general advice is to switch to the next finer grit when you no longer see any remaining grooves or roughness left by the previous grit. You may need to experiment with looking at the area that you are polishing ...

Even without knowing how thick it is or how heavy, that's a lot of marble. You really need to attach this to something, somewhere. The wall, the floor... Without that, you would have to have a serious counterweight at the bottom, at least as heavy or heavier than the marble. Why not just attach it to the wall or the floor? When your child's health is at ...

The amount of weight each bracket will support will be printed on the package. I would consult your granite or stone supplier for weights of their products. You MUST make sure that you're anchored into studs, though, and ...

Deep scratches and broken edges are a bad sign. If you want to learn about stone polishing, this would be a good learner project. Don't expect to be able to craft a Michelangelo. A matte finish would be reasonable, and expect to leave the deeper scratches in place. Matte marble finish should be polished out to 1500 grit. Gloss finish out to 3000 and ...

You would normally clean marble with etch spots with hydrogen peroxide or bleach and then repolish. From the sound of it yours may be more severely damaged. I would try both on a small spot and see how it goes. If your marble is actually corroded then you will have to polish until you hit uncorroded marble.

A diamond hole saw will do the job, use plenty of water and light pressure. You will do better with a single hole, AFA breakage goes, compared to making 2 edge semi circles. Update If we are talking about a toilet flange, there are 2 methods, each with variations, depending on your equipment. With a tile wet saw, raise and lower the blade such ...
