Granite has steadily become the surface of choice for stone counters. Granite is easy to clean, does not etch with acids, and if sealed properly will not stain. But there are times when when your granite surfaces need attention.
Over time a heavily used granite counter space can become dulled by the constant abrasion of porcelain dishes, metal hardware,and other implements. When this happens the surface needs to be polished. This is done using specialized tooling and polishes. Once the surface is brought back to a polish it is detailed and sealed. Your newly polished granite will last for years.
From the smallest texture to large chips and holes, Sureshine fills it all with state of the art UV cured adhesive along with other fillers and epoxies. This chip was filled using Fill-a-Chip UV curable adhesive. The repair is a permanent, impact resistant, polishable surface that can be color matched to almost any stone. Fill-a-chip repairs are almost invisible.
By following our easy suggestions you can keep your countertops looking beautiful for years. And Sureshine is just a phone call away to answer any granite related question you might have.
The most commonly asked question about granite is, “How often do I have to seal my granite?”
Upon evaluation Sureshine can provide easy answers to all of your granite related questions. Because each granite is different and every application is different the rule of thumb has been one time per year with a high quality penetrating sealer. However, many dark granite counters will require less attention than light colors or those approaching white.
