Granite worktops are known for being durable and lasting many years. Like all surfaces, however, it is important that they are properly cared for in order to keep them looking their best. Damage may occur if these worktops are not properly protected and maintained. If such damage occurs, it does not mean that the worktops need to be replaced. You can try some DIY repairs depending on just how extensive the damage is.
In order to fill cracks or scratches, you will need a granite patch kit. Ask your granite supplier for their recommendations in order to ensure best results. You will need to mix the dry stone until you achieve the correct colour. Next, you need to add liquid binders to the stone mix followed by a catalyst. Press this mixture into the granite area that needs to be repaired. Use a razor to gently scrape away any excess and buff down the area with a fine-grit paper.
One of the main problem with this type of repair is the fact that you might not be able to match the colour of your stone worktops perfectly. In addition, if the damage is particularly extensive, it is usually best to contact a professional to perform the necessary repairs. Not only do they have the necessary experience, but they also have specialised tools that get the job done far more effectively and efficiently.
