Natural Stone: Granite
Love natural stone countertops, but concerned about upkeep? Recent advancements in natural stone sealer technology have opened up a broader selection of options for customers seeking natural stone countertops with stain-resistant properties. From granite and quartzite to softer marble and onyx slabs, it is now possible to keep natural stone countertops looking as beautiful as the day they were installed with new nanotech sealer technology.
Unlike topical sealers, which create an impermeable film on your natural stone countertops, impregnating sealers with nanotech work differently. Water-based impregnating sealers penetrate below the surface of your countertop to repel water and oil. They are breathable, allowing interior moisture to escape. The latest of impregnating sealers feature nanotechnology, with smaller particles than can better fill the pores of natural stone, delivering unsurpassed stain resistance.
While some impregnating sealers with nanotech can block moisture from your natural stone countertops without changing the appearance of the stone, others can enhance your countertop color. Choosing a color-enhancing nanotech sealer can protect your countertop while bringing out its stunning hues, making it a popular choice for onyx and marble countertops. These sealers also work well for camouflaging scratches and etches, making them disappear in whole or in part upon application, depending on the countertop material.
Talk with your countertop fabricator to determine the best sealing schedule for your natural stone countertops. The right schedule is essential to safeguarding the warranty of your countertops. The need to reseal depends on stone type and the brand of your sealer. Each stone has a different porosity and finish that can lend to its stain-resistant properties. While some natural stone countertops would be best with an annual resealing, others may only require resealing every five years or more.
