Marbles and granite stones are two commonly used materials for external facades, internal decorative walls and floorings, both in residential and commercial buildings. As stones and marble replacement are costly, it is necessary to identify or narrow down the root causes of stains to reduce maintenance costs and to prevent future defects.
Third party analysis on natural stones will help property owners, managing agents and building maintenance companies manage their costs and prevent buildings from unsightly stains and defects. It is also advantageous for the materials to be checked thoroughly for compliance with standards before site installation.
TÜV SÜD has a variety of analytical instrumentation to help identify key or likely causes of stains and defects that could damage the aesthetic appearance of stones as well as help derive preventive measures
