StoneSelect Granite

FAQ's

Can you cut on StoneSelect Granite?
  • Yes! Granite is an extremely tough and durable material.  In most cases it can be used as a cutting surface without fear of scratching the stone. (Although, knives may be dulled by repeated cutting on the Granite.)

Can you set hot pans on StoneSelect Granite?
  • Yes! Granite is ideal for kitchens because under normal conditions it will not burn. (Although, the stone will hold the heat for a short period of time once the pan is removed.)

Does StoneSelect Granite chip or scratch?

  • Granite is a very dense material and under normal conditions it is chip and scratch resistant. However, we do no recommend a straight edge polish for countertops, especially around a sink. Pots, pans, and other heavy objects may chip the sharp edge of a straight edge finish. Several other edge options are available that will look beautiful and reduce the chance of chipping.

Will Granite stain?

  • Some granites, will accept moisture. There may be space between the crystals, allowing moisture to seep in. Hot oils will penetrate the stone fairly quickly and will darken the granite. We recommend cleaning up spills and oil residues as quickly as possible.

Should Granite be sealed?
  • Yes - All granite that is NOT StoneSelect Granite should be sealed yearly to prevent staining. However, by purchasing StoneSelect Granite, there is no need to seal your granite countertop for 15 years. StoneSelect Granite is warranted against staining and material failure for 15 years.

Cant Granite be repaired?

  • While it is difficult to permanently repair granite, it is also very difficult to damage it. However, if some damage does occur, granite usually can be repaired by a mix of epoxy and ground up chips of Granite.
