How to repair damage to quartz worktops

12-Feb-2015 When you invest a fair amount of you remodelling budget into quartz worktops, it can be quite disheartening if they get damaged. Whether they have just been fitted or you've had great use of them for years, even the smallest sign of damage should be tended to sooner rather than later.

The first step that you should take is to consider whether your worktops are still under some kind of guarantee or warranty. If so, make sure that you contact your supplier and inquire regarding repair procedures.

Next you will need to clean the surface area thoroughly with a cleaning product that is safe for use on natural stone. Anything acidic or abrasive, for example, will only cause more damage.

For chips to the edge of the worktop, you can fill it up with a strong, fast drying, transparent glue. Allow it to dry for at least 24 hours before carefully running a razor blade along the edge to remove any excess glue. This will ensure that the filled area is level with the rest. Scratches to the surface can be repaired in a similar way. Surface scratches (horizontal) can be repaired with thinner glue types whereas vertical repairs require a thicker glue or it may drip.

As for acid etching damage, it is best to call in the professionals. This kind of repair requires a fair amount of expertise if you want your worktops to look as great as they once were. Heat and certain other forms of damage can dull the surface and, sadly, no matter how much you polish, it will never return to it's original sheen. Remember to play it safe and never place hot items on your quartz worktops and clean up spills immediately.
