Newsline:International Stoneworks celebrates 30 years of stone restoration and maintenance

International Stoneworks, a leading premier natural stone restoration and maintenance business in Houston, TX, opened its doors in 1982, and after 30 years in business, president Rawi Tabbah thanked his employees and clientele with a celebration at The Tasting Room at Uptown Park.

Tabbah began his business by introducing one product to maintain natural stone without wax (the prevalent technique at the time). After he was given the opportunity to restore one marble bathroom floor with this new technique in a major Houston hotel, Tabbah expanded his business by performing stone restoration, maintenance work and selling various stone care products. International Stoneworks has grown into a family-run business that has developed various non-wax restoration systems for both natural stone and tile, including a unique high-speed grinding system.

International Stoneworks now sells its products nationally and internationally, and while typically it performs stone and tile restoration in residences and major buildings in Texas, it has traveled as far as California, Florida and New Jersey.

“It is quite an accomplishment for any company to successfully stay in business for 30 years, and I am very proud of International Stoneworks and its employees,” said Tabbah. “I am always looking for ways for our business to improve and grow, and I enjoy teaching my daughter, who joined us in 2009, about the services provided by our company. I look forward to celebrating another 30 years.”
