Shower jambs repair and restoration

We honed the shower jamb to remove any surface damage and prepare the surface for the next step. To fill in the holes, we floated (filled in the holes) with a high-quality, custom-tinted epoxy filler. We restored the finish with additional honing and polishing, matching the finish of the repaired portions with the surrounding stone. Our final steps were to seal the limestone to inhibit staining and re-caulked to discourage any future moisture damage.

The homeowners were glad that our restoration services enabled them to avoid the hefty cost of a demo and new install. We advised them to either use a pH-neutral, stone-safe cleaner on the shower door in the future or, if they continued to use glass cleaner, to protect the stone from drips.
