Is there an Industry Standard for Gloss Level on Tile?


Dull Polished Stone - Is there an industry standard for gloss level on medium honed travertine tile? The tile has a dull blotchy appearance after sealing. What are possible corrective actions polish, re-hone...?


ANSWER - If your question is relative to a new stone tile being installed, then it isn't acceptable to have an inconsistent polish/finish.  There is no standard in terms of rating the intensity of the gloss.  It is subjective in suggesting it needs to be consistent. 

Whether new or an older installation that has traffic patterns, which is expected, then look for a stone restoration company who can re-polish it in place.  Good Luck!
