  • Can I cut directly on granite countertops?
    Granite is harder than knife blades and will dull them quickly, if you use your countertop as a cutting board. Always cut and chop food on a wooden or plastic cutting board.

  • Can granite countertops get damaged?
    High impact blows can damage granite countertops. Because it is a crystal structure, it can chip if subjected to sharp hard objects. Unsealed granite can absorb stains such as oil, which can discolour the stone. Heat from pots or pans will not affect granite tops under normal circumstances.

  • Can I set a hot pot on the granite countertop?
    Granite cannot be affected by heat from a pot or frying pan.

  • Can Granite chip?
    A chip can occur on your granite countertop, as it is a natural product. A chip can be filled with a granite dust and epoxy. If a chip occurs on your countertop, do not throw out the chipped pieces. They will be used to fix the countertop.

  • How are countertop seams made?
    Seams are required when two pieces of stone are put together. The seams are joined with epoxy that is mixed with colour that matches the stone. Then the joined area is smoothed, leaving only a very thin line visible.

  • What is the difference between granite and marble?
    The main difference between granite and marble is that granite is highly dense and composed of material from deep inside the earth’s core, while marble is formed from sediments under the seabed. Both solidify into stone after millions of years but the mineral composition of the two stones makes marble and granite react differently to various chemicals and household cleaners.

  • Does granite have any pits or fissures?
    Yes, granite has natural pits and fissures that are part of the stone’s natural structure. Some types of granite have more of such characteristics than other types, and applying sealer to the surface of the counter can minimize pits.

  • Can granite be repaired?
    If any damage occurs it can be sealed with a mixture of epoxy and ground chips of granite.

  • How do I clean my granite countertop?
    Granite itself is approximately 95% stain resistant but we seal all our stones with a special impregnator. This will ensure lasting beauty and protection. Polished granite should be cleaned using mild phosphate-free, biodegradable liquid dish soap, followed by a thorough rinsing and drying with cotton flannel or chamois. Please keep in mind that soap build-up will dull your countertop’s finish significantly. When using a granite cleaner, let it sit for about 30 seconds then wipe off well using a soft cloth.

  • Does granite stain?
    In most cases the answer is no. All stone is porous to some degree but granite has very few porous characteristics.


  • Is marble suitable for a kitchen countertop?
    Marble is not a good choice for a kitchen countertop, although it can be sealed, it is not as dense a stone as granite. It is more porous and susceptible to being stained in a kitchen environment. It is a much softer stone and will stain, chip or crack under frequent use.

  • Can I seal marble?
    Marble is sealed after the fabrication process; it is still highly susceptible to staining.

  • What applications can I use marble for?
    Marble can be used for numerous applications, like fireplace surrounds and tabletops. Marble is extremely popular for bath area projects, like bath surrounds, vanities, floors, and shower lining. Marble is generally used in low traffic areas. 

  • Can I use marble in living areas of the home?
    Marble has been used in all areas of homes since ancient times, on floors and walls. Marble can create a warm and welcoming environment for any home.
