Re: [sccpartners] Marble floors with granite border. Kris Dougherty 16 Feb 2011 10:53 EST

I had a job that the granite had a coating on it. The granite was on the
border. We did not realize there was a coating on the granite as there
was not one on the marble.
After the job the customer had Marblelife come in to look at the granite
and the Marblelife franchise is only a few months old. They tried to
tell the customer that the granite floor got scratched from our
polishing process and that is not possible from all the years I have
services these floors. I have never seen granite get damaged from marble
What about you.
