granite counter tops dull and chipped
|Article Number: 1114 | Rating: Unrated | Last Updated: Tue, Jan 29, 2008 at 12:00 AM|
We remodeled our kitchen. I chose granite for my new counter tops. I shopped around and went with a company that was suppose to be one of the top installers. There were some small chips after they had installed, they have not taken care of it. Is there a company that can smooth them out? Also they are dull, is there a product that will really bring shine and help against fingerprints? We live in utah. thank-You
“ Is there a company that can smooth them out? ”
Yes: a bona-fide stone restoration company. You first check this list at: http://www.marblecleaning.org/supporters.htm and see if there's one in your area. If not, they are usually listed in the Yellow Pages under “Marble and Terrazzo Cleaning.”
“ Also they are dull, is there a product that will really bring shine and help against fingerprints? ”
If they are dull, there's got to be a reason. Maybe the stone you chose is not a big shiner, or maybe the factory finish was not up to par… One thing is for sure, it is not inside a bottle that you will ever find a solution to that problem. Only a proficient stone restoration contractor could make a sure assessment and, possibly, find a solution – if any. However, if you're looking for a product that, in conjunction with a good-quality cleaning agent will help keeping finger marks at bay, I recommend good quality products like MB-5 and MB-13.
