As granite and marble become more popular options for kitchen and bathrooms, the frequency of calls we receive to repair these surfaces increases as well.
Though granite is one of the hardest materials in existence and should not scratch, chip or crack during normal use - installation processes can by anything but typical. We commonly repair scratches and chips caused when large appliances were installed on or adjacent to counters during construction or remodeling.
Natural marble is not as hard as granite and tends to stain and scratch very easily. Therefore, it is more commonly used for vanities and mantels than in kitchens. If the marble has become dull over time, we can also hone and/or polish the surface to bring back the original shine.
