Ted McFadden and Cameron DeMille have teamed up to put together a comprehensive stone refinishing and repair class focused on effective and efficient stone refinishing and repair procedures


72091 Woburn Court
Suite A
Thousand Palms, CA 92276
See the map here.

This is 99.9% hands on and will cover flooring, walls and counters.

A brief incomplete list of what you will be able to do upon completion:
  1. Lippage Removal (floors) - Removing unevenness between tiles both with a planetary and a swing machine.
  2. General Refinishing to a polish or a hone - This is the bread and butter of your stone refinishing business.
  3. Use many different types of polishing powder, and other polishing methods.
  4. Refinishing and polishing showers and other vertical surfaces. You can see the full size wall set up in the pictures attached with different stones and finishes.
  5. Refinishing marble counters and tables. Customers will love that you can take care of all of their stone surfaces. Marble vanities commonly need work.
  6. Refinishing and polishing granite counters. While this service isn't as common, there are few professional restorers that know how to do this right. We use the latest methods and products to achieve consistent factory finishes on granite counters.
  7. Filling and repairing granite counters. Learn how to use professional chip and fill kits as well as traditional methods to make chips, holes, and dings almost disappear.
  8. Filling cracks, chips, and holes in travertine and other flooring materials.
  9. The use of sealers, testing, what to look out for and how to apply them.
  10. We will spend a short time explaining and showing how to use the ColorClad Core Color System for grout sealing on ceramic and porcelain tile.
  11. Ongoing support for every student.
This is not your grandma's stone seminar, this is 4 action packed days of stone action! We will be introducing you to the most commonly installed stones that you will come across out in the field, as well as some less common stones.

The first day will begin with attendee and instructor introductions. Class starts early and ends when you don't want any more. These days were chosen so you have plenty of time to get home Sunday. If you choose to stick around, one of us will make ourselves available to you.

Coffee and doughnuts will be provided as well as lunch. Dinner will be any opportunity to discuss the day's events, or any other questions you have relating to stone. If you're sick of stone, we can just have a good time.

So Happy With Our Experence October 4, 2018
Reviewer: Ken & Heidi Brooks  
Better very later then never!! It took us a long time just to find education in California that was hands on for stone polishing. We found these guys through the internet & it was the best investment we could have made. My husband came back to the hotel every night so excited again about what he was doing/learning in class & this new adventure he was going to be taking. Since then we have been able to reach out to Cameron via text or email with questions & he gets right back to us. Definitely an A+ for Ted & Cam!! Thanks Guys!!

Fantastic facility and training October 4, 2018
Reviewer: Matt Rice from Florida  
You can't go wrong taking this training.  There is a wealth of information and a great selection of floors/counters/showers to work on.  If you go and you can't make you're money back in a few jobs you're doing something wrong.  A class act.  Thanks Cameron and crew.  Matt

Reviewer: Sam Jaramillo from Henderson, NV United States  
Ive been in the flooring industry for close to 30 years mostly carpet and area rugs, I can't say enough about how much this class has helped me add another revenue stream..Im so glad I took the the hands on class because the instructors answered all my questions and provided me insights you just wouldn't learn in an online class..well worth the money..

Beat my expectations March 12, 2018
Reviewer: Erik Nudd from Koloa , HI United States  
I knew for a long time that this was a hard core, comprehensive class and that Cameron and Ted were at the very top of their game in the stone restoration industry. After putting it off for too long, I finally made it to the class this past February and my only regret is waiting so long. Worth every penny. I want more and look forward to coming back, and I'm coming from Hawaii. Awesome class.

Incredible class and instructors! May 20, 2016
Reviewer: Mark from New Braunfels, TX United States  
When they say this is not your Grandma's stone class they mean it!  Between all the hands on work and fresh off the grill meals you cannot go wrong by taking this course.  If you wanna learn from the best I highly recommend taking this class.  Ted and Cameron really go out of their way every day.  Each class started around 8 am (aside from the first day, 9am) and these guys stay till 6 or 7pm to make sure all questions, concerns, and strategies are discussed.  Thank you guys for the amazing experience!
