PROTECTING YOUR GRANITE
Natural stone is a little piece from the fingerprint of the Earth. No stone is exactly the same; they might look alike, but they all have many differences. The beauty, hardness, and utility of granite all make it a highly desirable material for countertops in home design. In addition to its natural strength, granite is a beautiful stone that adds color and warmth to a room.
However, once your stone is installed, it is up to you to protect your investment. Many factors need to be considered when choosing the correct sealer. One example is stone type. Consider the color of your granite, how thick it is, whether it is granite or marble, the hardness or density of the stone, how porous it is, and how fast it absorbs liquid. Also consider the stone’s finish—
what type of finish was applied, was the surface polished, and was resin applied? Don’t forget about the stone’s location—is it in the kitchen, bathroom, dining room, outdoor living space, floor, wall, or foyer? Is the application residential or commercial? And finally, think about the current maintenance. What kind of maintenance has, or will, the stone be subjected to?
Make sure you understand the differences between common product types available on the market. The products typically fall into two major categories: topical sealer/coatings, and impregnators. Topical sealers are designed to protect the surface of stone against water, oil, and other contaminants. Strippable coatings are formulated to strip or come off the stone easily. Permanent coatings, once applied, are very difficult to remove. Impregnators, both water- or
solvent-based, penetrate below the surface, and become repellents. Impregnators keep contaminants out, but do not stop the interior moisture from escaping. Hydrophobic impregnators are formulated to repel only water and water-based chemicals. Oliophobic impregnators are designed to repel water and oil-based liquids.
The professionals at Braza Stone recommend that you carefully review all
of these factors prior to treatment. They want to make sure that your stone
looks as beautiful as it did the day it was installed. If you have any questions,
