Are your granite countertops no longer shining as bright as they used to?

Our experts provide granite refinishing services that will bring back the wow factor you’ve been missing from your granite countertops.
Unfortunately, granite countertops can become dull from the cleaning solutions used. Many times the cleaning solution that you use causes a film of soap on the surface which leads to the dullness that you now see on your counters. However, the great thing about it is that if this is the reason why your granite is not shining as bright then it will be an easy fix to get it looking back to how it was when it was first installed.
On the other hand, the dullness that now takes over your countertops could also be due to etching. This also comes hand in hand with the cleaning solutions used during cleaning. As some solutions can be abrasive or be acidic in nature, they can cause damage to the surface leaving it exposed and causing the shine to become dull. Once the surface is damaged it is more likely to be damaged by accidental spills, cleaning solutions and more that can now penetrate through into the granite.
It is always best to have an experienced professional tackle your granite as they can properly diagnose and recommend the best option for restoring that original shine. Along with that, they also have the knowledge and expertise in what solutions and materials to use to prevent further damage to your granite as they refinish it.
Sadly, once the finish on your granite is damaged, there is no other solution but to refinish your countertops. If you crave that shine your countertops had when they were first installed, then schedule a granite refinishing service today and have your coveted granite luster again.
Benefits of Our Professional Granite Refinishing Services
1. Clean Granite Stains
As mentioned above, after the finish of the granite has been damaged, the surface becomes exposed and vulnerable to stains it would otherwise be resistant to. When left unchecked, the stains can become unsightly and cause you to lose the beautiful aesthetic your granite countertops provided. Stains found in granite can be very difficult to clean, especially without the proper knowledge and tools of what to use to prevent further damaging your granite. If you accidentally scrub the stain or use the wrong cleaning solution, you can actually increase the risk of scratching and causing other imperfections. Our professionals can refinish your granite countertops by efficiently removing these stains with our state-of-the-art equipment.
2. Etch Marks Removal
Granite is prone to etching and other marks especially when the surface needs to be refinished. When the incorrect cleaning solutions are used, they have the potential to damage the surface as many can be abrasive in nature. Removing these blemishes to obtain a smooth, radiant look can be very difficult for an untrained hand. With our granite refinishing services, our professionals can remove these marks and other imperfections much more efficiently than a do-it-yourself person. They will do everything from grinding, honing, polishing, and even buffing to restore the original shine of the granite surface.
Although you might be diligent at keeping your surfaces clean, there are times when an expert’s help is essential. Using professional granite countertop refinishing services can save you the time you would have otherwise spent doing it yourself. Additionally, having an experienced professional work on your countertop surfaces can potentially restore them to their former glory.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If you’re ready to make a valuable upgrade to your living space, here are some FAQ about natural stone and quartz:
- Natural stone vs quartz
Natural stone is sourced straight from the earth. It can be found in a huge variety of unique colors and three different textures (polished, honed and leather), has good resistance, withstands high temperatures and has long durability. It has low porosity after being properly sealed which makes it ideal to be installed both indoors and outdoors.
Quartz is an industrialized stone made by combining quartz minerals with pigments and resins. Having the same marble look but maintenance and worry free is one of the main advantages of quartz as it is stain and starch resistant. Since quartz is over 90% a manmade stone, it also allows for a greater variety of colors and style, resulting in beautiful countertops.
Natural stone requires sealing every five years to maintain its smooth look and durability.
Because quartz is fused with resin and other polymers, it does not need to be sealed regularly.
