Each natural granite is represented in its own category which are sorted into three levels. Levels can be determined by its color, veins, pitting, marking, thickness, the amount of soft materials it has.
The level of the stone affects its hardness and density. Each of these require a different approach which requires years of experience to properly handle and repair. Here at Sarasota Granite Fix we approach each individual countertops project with the specialized care that it needs.
What You Can Do
If you experience any sort of break, chip, or crack in your granite countertop, the best coarse of action is to keep all the pieces together and assure their safe keeping by simply sealing them in a small bag or envelope. Do not try to fit the pieces back into the breakage, this may cause further damage. This will ensure your granite countertops repair will maintain to its original form as closely as possible. Once there has been damage to the stone it is also important to make sure the breakage area is covered up to prevent any dirt, grease, and oils from entering the stone which can cause issues when repairing the damage.
Seams can normally break due to improper installation which did not provide enough support around the seam. Our approach at Granite Fix is to first find the root cause of the breakage, then providing the proper installation adjustments and support needed to prevent future damage. We then finalize with proper seam repairing and leveling procedures.
Why Reseal Your Stone?
Resealing is very important for protecting your stone from rust and stains that originate from, foods, drinks, grease, oils, and ect.. Over time the granite countertops absorb all this debris which causes the minerals within the stone to react with the water, oils and other debris, leading to rust which eventually makes its way to the surface of the
stone. Resealing your granite countertops
should be done once every 3 months in places
with common kitchen use.
