Granite is one of the hardest types of stones available for creating beautiful counter tops or for tiling areas in your home. Hard as it is, though, like all natural materials, granite can become damaged over time. Granite repairs can bring your granite back to life.
Granite comes in a huge variety of colours, and if cared for properly, it will last you a lifetime. What many people don’t know, however, is that although granite is very hard, it can still become chipped, especially around the sink area. It can also sustain damage from harsh cleaning chemicals and because of its porous nature, can develop stains from water, oil and dirt.
Granite repairs can help by reducing or removing stains, fixing chips, and finishing the stone with either a honed or polished look. This not only makes the stone look like new again, but also highlights the natural beauty of the stone by bringing the colours back to life.
Granite repairs should also include a sealant to help protect against further damage. Almost all granite should be sealed so that it doesn’t absorb water, oil and dirt, thus reducing the chances of further stains developing. Not all sealers are created equal, though. Some will only last for 6 months to a year, while others, such as used by Megasealed, will last much longer. If you are planning on asking a professional to repair your granite, make sure you know which sealer they use.
Lastly, your professional should also have advice on further maintenance and care of your granite, so be sure to ask them.
