We Can Solve Your Marble Etching and Staining Problem


Surface Protection

TuffSkin Surface Protection is warranted to protect approved surfaces from all chemical acid and alkaline etching; including staining from wine, soda, fruit juices, and other liquids. It wlfl maintain its distortion free appearance without discoloration. Protected surfaces will not stain or etch, for as long as Tuff Skin Surface Protection is Installed on the surface.


Performance Warranty: TuffSkin is a proprietary structural sealer developed to protect calcium based stone from all etching and staining. The protected surface is warrantied to be acid, alkaline, water and oil-proof for a period of 10 years from the date of installation for any interior residential, commercial or hospitality associated environments.

Product Warranty: TuffSkin products are warrantied for 10 years for interior applications. This warranty specifically covers product against yellowing, blistering, bubbling, or delaminating from the protected surface. Warranty does not include intentional or unintentional scratching or peeling.

Life Expectancy

TuffSkin is designed to be removable-and-replaceable.

The life expectancy of your TuffSkin purchase is directly related to use. Customers make an aesthetic decision to replace TuffSkin based on normal wear-and-tear and scratches that occur over time. This is equivalent to the decision you would make to refinish un-treated natural stone surfaces on a regular basis due to wear caused from everyday use and the occasional mishap.

TuffSkin has protected over 100,000 surfaces in the last 12 years. Historically, the decision to replace TuffSkin is an aesthetic determination based upon personal preference, whereby hotels replace every 8-10 years, busy restaurants and bars 1-5 years, and residential customers every 4-8 years. Regardless of when the decision to remove-and-replace TuffSkin is made, the performance of TuffSkin remains acid, alkaline, water and oil-proof for as long as TuffSkin is installed on the surface.

Additional Benefits

TuffSkin is heat resistant, chemical resistant, and greatly reduces impact marks on stone tops. Although TuffSkin will scratch, the protected stone never will.


Cleaning TuffSkin is simple and can be done with soap and water. You may also use any stone cleaner and/or TuffSkin Protectant to clean the surface. Final cleaning is done with a dry microfiber towel. Do not use abrasives like Comet or Softscrub. Do not scrub with steel wool or scrape with razor blades.

Do not attempt to peel the product away from stone. TuffSkin is made to be replaceable in case of damage. It is possible to peel it back with a knife or a fingernail. TuffSkin peeled away from the stone is intentional damage and is not covered under the warranty.

Contact Dave the Marble Guy for claims or questions. Liability for loss or damage due to TuffSkin products is limited to the cost of the product sold. Keep your invoice and submit it with any warranty claims. This warranty is provided to the original purchaser and is not transferable.

What our customers say

They are really great! Dave came out and gave a quote for sealing all our tiles and stone. They did an exceptional job and warranty their work 10+years, no questions asked, and really do stand behind their work. Dave is very knowledgeable, honest and explains everything thoroughly. In fact, I had a stain on a marble counter top and he came by and fixed it at no charge! He truly will not rest until the customer is happy.

David and his crew installed marble tiles for our bathroom remodel over 8 years ago. They did a perfect job in every way. The bathroom still looks brand new even though it’s been used heavily over the years. We have had zero issues whatsoever. I highly recommend Dave and his crew. I’d call him again for any tile/stone job as I know that the job would be done right and that I would not have issues down the road.

Dave, the owner, provided me with a very detailed estimate so I could choose the marble tile restoration of my showier and bathroom floor. This is not common in the contractor world. The crew did an amazing job with grout replacement, repair and restoration of the marble tile to a beautiful shine. The team was very professional and did not leave without totally cleaning up. I would definitely recommend them.
