Travertine Lipage Removal

Uneven tile got you down? You need travertine lippage removal!

No, this is not a term used in plastic surgery. lol. The term, lipage removal, refers to uneven travertine tile. If this is a problem  you are facing, there is a solution and it does not include tearing out your floor.

First, the floor must be fully ground down to level out the tiles.. This can be a bit tricky because if you grind the floor too much, holes start appearing in both the tile and the grout. Sometimes, even if you are careful, holes are created through grinding and will have to be filled before sealing. Next step in the lipage removal process is to polish the tile back up. That process is a slow one which will take several steps depending upon how highly polished the customer want it. After you have polished it to the desired shine level it’s time to put a penetrating sealer on it. We use Modern Stone Technologies Line of Sealers.
