Many granites require pre-sealing before installation. Light coloured granites will stain easily, the lighter the colour, generally the more porous. Some granites will stain permanently just from being wet. Some of the darker charcoal colours are affected by acids, especially G684. Many granites (rusty yellows) contain iron as a mineral which we successfully treat.
Granite is a natural stone made from the composition of molten quartz and feldspar and other composition minerals. Granite was formed millions of years ago deep below the earth’s surface under immense heat and pressure. Granite is the hardest stone used in flooring and countertops.
Granites come in varying surface types: polished, honed, saw cut, leathered, exfoliated (flamed), and water jet-cut. Each of these types changes the porosity at the surface, the slip factor and the varying ease of maintenance.More information about pre-Sealing
