Information on sealing countertops

Should I seal my countertops?

While natural stone like granite, marble, and quartzite undeniably elevates the aesthetics of your home, its inherent porosity – the ability to absorb liquids and stains – necessitates proper care. To maintain its captivating beauty and shield it from potential damage, sealing becomes crucial. Our team does seal your countertops before your project is complete, however, it is up to you to maintain sealing them.

Granite, for instance, requires annual sealing, while marble and quartzite demand reapplication two to three times per year to sustain their elegance. This process creates an invisible barrier, minimizing the penetration of liquids and stains, thereby safeguarding the stone’s integrity and visual appeal.

On the other hand, modern materials like quartz, porcelain, and sintered stone offer a distinct advantage – they are inherently non-porous. This eliminates the need for regular sealing, making them a popular choice for busy homeowners seeking low-maintenance elegance.

Understanding the specific requirements of your chosen countertop material, whether the timeless charm of natural stone or the convenience of modern alternatives, empowers you to make informed decisions and ensures your surfaces continue to be a source of pride and enjoyment for years to come.
