Best Stone Repair

  • Hoffman Brothers


    Like their great-grandfather who worked on St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Hoffmans have spent decades learning to work with stone, terra-cotta, and tile. Marty, Vincent, and James will ensure that your slate floors have perfect book-matched seams, lift stains from counters, and restore even the most rococo fireplace ($2,500 to $10,000).
