How to Repair Chipped Quartz Worktops

Quartz worktops are beautifully luxurious and durable. Although these worktops are known for their strength, accidents can happen and even the smallest chip can ruin that perfect finish. Fortunately, these kinds of flaws can be repaired and many homeowners perform the repairs themselves.

Start by gently wiping the chipped area with a clean, damp cloth to make sure that no debris or dirt has settled inside the chip. Now you will need to fill the chip with a strong, clear substance. A great idea is super glue. Not only is it tough, but it will also help you achieve the best colour match.

Using a razor blade, gently and carefully smooth the area over so that the super glue fills the hole without overflowing. Once you are done, you can use an accelerant to speed up the hardening process or you allow it to harden naturally.

When the super glue is hard, you need to use a find variety of sand paper and gently smooth it out so that there aren’t any high spots. Remember, some types of natural stone are fairly resistant to sanding. Unfortunately, the shine of your quartz worktops can easily be damaged so you need to strictly sand the area filled with super glue. At this point, you can match the colour and finish off with another thin layer of super glue and a quick buff.

If you don’t have all the necessary tools or you’re concerned about your DIY experience, it’s best to ask a professional to perform the repairs. Even if you do hire a pro, it’s still better than a full replacement!
