Q. How often do I need to seal my granite top?

Our granite is installed in your home pre-sealed and should be resealed periodically according to color recommendations.                                    .

Granite comes pre-sealed and needs to be sealed at least once a year thereafter for lighter stones, darker ones less frequently because of their density.  Before you can apply the sealer you need to clean your countertops with denatured alcohol. Use a clean, soft cloth to apply a generous coat of the sealer. Allow this to penetrate the stone as directed.  Take another clean, dry cloth and wipe the excess sealer off. The sealer needs to be wiped off while wet, so if the sealer starts to dry, add more sealer to the countertop and continue to wipe it off. Use a final clean dry cloth and do a final wipe down to ensure all the excess sealer is removed.
