FAQ's About Granite

Can I put hot objects on granite?

Yes, granite is very resistant to heat. This is why granite is ideal for kitchens.


How do I know if my granite needs to be resealed?

One way to check would be to sprinkle water on to the surface, if the water soaks into the stone instead of beading up your granite needs to be resealed.


Will my granite have a seam?

If possible we try hard to avoid seams. However most kitchens will have a seam no matter how hard you try. Seam placement is determined by StoneQuarters.

Granite is a heavy product, but your cabinets are usually stronger than you think. When giving your free estimate we will make sure to check and see if your cabinets will be able to hold granite.


Can I cut on my granite countertops?
