Countertop Restoration Guide

Posted on: 17 May 2017

Granite and marble are some of the most beautiful type of countertops that you can purchase for your home. They are incredibly hard and can be found in so many different colors and shades that they can add character to almost any type of home. Unfortunately, there are times when the countertops can be damaged. They can be chipped away or the seal may wear off, opening the countertop up to etching and stains. No matter what happens to your countertops there is a solution. Instead of replacing your countertops you should look into restoring them to former glory. Here are a few different ways to restore your countertops.

Chipped Countertops

It is possible to chip one of these countertops. However, just because you have a big chip in your countertops does not mean that you need an entire new countertop. One thing that you can do is have a contractor cut your countertops into smaller slabs. This will allow for your existing countertops to expand just a little and you can actually have the chipped portion of the countertop removed from the countertop. This is going to save you a lot of money in the long run over replacing your entire countertop.


Sometimes the sealant that is used on the countertops is to blame for letting debris or liquid get into the countertops. You can hire a contractor or a countertop expert to clean the countertops as thoroughly as possible, and then instead of replacing the countertop, you can have a brand new seal put over the countertops. The seal can be almost any type, but you will most likely want to get a very thick coat of the sealant. Remember that the sealant can be a matte or a glossy finish. The type of sealant that you pick can have a big part in how your countertops now look. Just remember that stone needs to be resealed every few years. 


It can be very expensive to have to replace countertops, but the good news is that most of the countertops that are going into homes that are granite or marble come from large quarries. You can have any part of your countertop replaced with another slab of similar granite or marble. So if you find that your countertop is in need of a large chunk of rock, you may be in luck.
