There are many good reasons that our clients choose granite for flooring, counters, and other areas. It’s strong, it’s durable, and it is resilient. That said, it is not entirely unbreakable. If you have a granite surface that needs restoration, you have found the right company.

Your Granite Restoration Job Will Likely Involve Several Steps
The truth is that granite is a unique rock and no two slabs are identical. As a result, cleaning, restoring, and sealing granite generally follow a similar process but we always consider the unique needs of a particular project. Some of the steps we generally include in the restoration process include the following.
Granite Restoration Starts with Cleaning
We will always start with a deep cleaning. If you have exterior granite, this will involve using a precisely adjusted pressure washer tuned to the right temperature. This gets rid of dirt, algae, mildew, surface stains, and residue left from previous treatments. Once we have it cleaned, we can get a better idea of the needed restoration services.
We Then Remove Stains
If the granite is in good shape but has a few stains, then we can work to remove them. Depending on how deep they are and what they are, we might use a diamond abrasive compound that is made specifically for granite, or we may use one of our specially formulated products or poultices. Once the stain is gone, we can move on to the next steps.
We Can Repair Cracks and Chips
As we mentioned above, the fact that granite is strong does not mean that it is immune to becoming cracked or chipped. There could also be natural imperfections that you do not like. Either way, our staff can use our high-quality epoxies to tin and polish your stone after repair, which leaves you with nearly-invisible results.
We Generally Finish by Polishing and Sealing
Once we have restored the granite, we will use a dustless polishing method. This gets rid of any remaining scratches, dull patches, etch marks, and similar imperfections. The final process is sealing your granite. This step actually reduces the size of the pores, which means that it is less likely to become stained and is easier to clean in the future.
