Additional Information for Granite Customers
Granite is a natural stone product;
therefore there will be natural imperfections. These imperfections are natural and are in no way flaws in the material. Colors
and patterns will vary from bundle to bundle, and to some degree from slab to slab. The surface of granite is not totally
smooth - there are pits, fissures, and gaps. These cannot be polished out, as it is the natural state of the stone.
Granite seams are
inevitable on some jobs. Seam placement is based on many factors, including, but not limited to, slab length, cabinet support,
and appliance compatibility. All seams are slightly beveled and filled with a silicone caulk chosen to match the granite color
as closely as possible. Seam width varies from job to job and is affected by many factors.
Your granite countertops
were sealed prior to installation and should be considered a temporary barrier, allowing time to wipe up spills before
they can cause stains. All natural stone is porous and must be sealed at least once a year.
Some stones are more
porous than others. This is not a defect of the stone; it is a natural characteristic. If the stone selected is a lighter
color, it may need to be sealed as often as every six months. If you need more information regarding sealers or the sealing
process, please check internet.
