Repairing or Restoring A Marble Table Top?

July 24, 2008

marble topI have a marble top table that has been outdoors in the sun and rain for more than 5 years. Now the table top is dull and I would like to restore it, since I now have a screened patio.


I would appreciate it if somebody can give me any advice. Thanks.

There are brush-on or sponge-on products that will coat the marble to make it look shiny again. One is Marble Shine-N-Seal, made by Custom Building Products. I've used this on interior marble, and on dulled black trim on my stove. Apply a thin film and let it dry- don't rub or polish it!

Outdoors, I recently experimented (emphasis on "experiment"!) with concrete sealer on a marble mosaic sundial pedestal. So far, great: attractive glossy finish. Product: Concrete Cure 'n Seal, made by Sakrete.

I have a marble table used to the same conditions. I sanded it with a 1200 wet/dry paper and finished off with 1500 wet and dry paper.


I then coated it with a film of Brie Wax. It's not too bad but I would like better. Any pointers?

I have a large marble top living room table that has seriously cracked. Who can I get to repair this table?

My marble dining room table got a nick in it (1 inch long by 1/2 inch wide, by 1/16 inch deep at the deepest part of the nick) when a piece of metal accidentally fell on it. The table is real marble, variegated green with a tiny bit of white veining. The nick is not terribly noticeable, but I'm afraid it'll get bigger (like a pot hole!) if I leave it alone. This table has lasted 26 years and only needed to be resurfaced once. Do I need to call in professionals to repair or can I do it? If I can, how? Thanks so much.

I have an 8 seater marble, cream table which is broken in the horizontal position. I sent it for repair and am not happy with it. They just faced the whole bottom with wood to keep it in place, but the crack is still very visible. Is there some way it can be fixed? If not, perhaps I just need to find someone would like to buy it to make smaller side tables. Please let me know. Thank you all.
