    A Polished Finish did my countertops, and I’m in love! I was so torn between colors of quartz, and April helped me pick the perfect color while being there for all my calls and visits! April helped me from start to finish with a smooth process. She was so sweet answering my million questions. Steven did the templates, and was awesome too! They are the best in town, and I can’t recommend them enough!

    We had a great experience with A Polished Finish! A friend recommended them to us when we began our new home construction. We visited for the first time and met “B”, who carried us through the whole process. She was great from start to finish. After choosing our kitchen countertops in the showroom, we visited the remnant yard and found all 3 of our bathroom countertops. That was amazing and saved us a lot of money. We had so many to choose from and love them installed! We also wanted a full marble fireplace, and I had a picture to show them exactly what I wanted. We were then introduced to Brittany to help with that, and she found the perfect leathered slab for us. She worked with Steven, who measured our templates, and it turned out exactly like we wanted. The installers were great as well. We can’t wait to see it all come together once everything else is finished. Thank you so much!~Christie Roberts

    APF just put the countertops in my new home and they’re beautiful! I was very overwhelmed with all the decisions being made and had picked some countertops out that were way above our budget when very randomly (I took it as an answer to prayer!) met the owner of APF. Without having any idea he was the owner, I told him my dilemma with countertops, and he asked what I wanted. I told him and he told me exactly what to get that would be in our budget. I trusted him and went with it and I’m so glad I did! Everyone that helped us at APF, (from the owner to the sales people, especially B, to the man who came to measure to the installers) they were all extremely kind and helpful. I highly recommend them!

    Brittany "B" was great to work with. Being in Fl and having work done on a home in GA is not an easy task. Brittany communicated with me from start to finish. She even suggested a color based on a product I had looked at in Fl which turned out to be nicer than the original. We reviewed the template to ensure final product would be exactly what we wanted and A Polished delivered! Easy , communicative and professional.

    Frequently Asked Questions


    Granite is a natural igneous rock formed deep down the Earth's crust. It originates from the slow cooling and solidifying process of molten magma. Over a span of millions of years, the interlocking mineral crystals, predominantly quartz, feldspar, and mica, create the distinctive patterns and durability that make granite countertop installation a popular choice for various applications.

    Granite surfaces have been approved for use with food, and there are no reported cases of bacterial illnesses associated with this material, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In fact, granite is less likely to harbor bacteria when compared to laminated surfaces or butcher blocks. Maintaining a germ-free granite countertop is all that's required to ensure a hygienic environment.

    Granite stands as a remarkably robust and durable natural stone. The strength of a particular granite slab can fluctuate depending on the stone's origin and quarry. Nevertheless, on average, granite typically boasts a weight of approximately 15-20 pounds per square foot, underscoring its exceptional strength and sturdiness.

    Yes, it is advisable to annually seal your granite countertops. Granite, being a natural stone, possesses some level of porosity. Sealing serves as a protective measure against potential staining from spills left unattended for extended periods, which can lead to discoloration. This initial sealing can provide protection for up to two years after the first year, reducing the frequency of resealing.

    Yes, maintenance is essential for granite countertops. Over time, the protective seal on granite surfaces can wear off, potentially leading to the stone's pores reacting with liquids and causing discoloration. To prevent this, it is recommended to reseal granite countertops annually. This routine maintenance helps preserve the beauty and durability of your granite surfaces, ensuring they remain in optimal condition for years to come.

    Granite stands out for its enduring beauty, high density, and versatile aesthetics. With striking patterns and natural durability, it is a popular choice for countertops, enhancing spaces with both timeless elegance and long-lasting functionality.
