DO I NEED TO SEAL MY GRANITE COUNTERTOPS?

Click here for details ▼

Yes. We recommend that you seal your countertops annually. Granite is a natural stone and is somewhat porous, so sealing protects your countertops from spills that may not be cleaned up too quickly, or high-acid spills such as orange juice, which can etch and stain. After we install your countertops we do seal the granite and because we use a commercial strength sealing agent you could wait up to two years after the first year to reseal your countertops.

WHAT IS INVOLVED IN SEALING MY GRANITE?

Sealing granite is just as easy as wiping off your countertops. Just spray the sealing agent on your countertops, allowing it to sit for about 5 minutes so the sealant can penetrate deep into the pores of the granite and then simply wipe it off.

CAN I CUT ON MY GRANITE COUNTERTOPS?

Yes you can. Granite is so hard, however, that you may dull your knife in the process.

WILL MY GRANITE SCRATCH?

No, not usually. Granite can only be scratched by materials that are harder than granite itself.

WILL GRANITE BURN?
