When to replace granite worktops

28-Apr-2016 Granite is a highly sought after material for bathroom and kitchen worktops. That said, it also has a higher price tag than certain other types of surfaces. They are available in a number of colours and finishes to suit your design and personal preferences.

Given the higher price, many homeowners wonder how often they will need to replace this kind of work surface. Let's face it, if you are going to pay more for a product, it had better be worth your while! The good news is that this is an investment that will pay off.

Granite is a tough and durable surface. That said, there are times when replacement is necessary. If you scratch, chip, or stain your granite worktops, you can almost always perform the repairs yourself. Sanding, filling, and polishing can be done by a professional if you don't own the necessary equipment or if you're not confident in your skills.

Replacement is necessary after many years, once the surface has clearly exceeded its prime. If the stone is badly damaged, it will often need replacing. For example if the stone is cracked all the way through, your worktops could present a safety risk and the unstable surfaces could cause damage to your cabinets below as a result.

Hygiene concerns also play a part. If you notice that the previous owners of a home have not cared for and sealed their granite worktops, you might be inclined to either have them refinshed or completely replaced.
