It continually amazes me that so many stone fabricators and installers either don’t seal and protect the stone they install, or they use very inferior products.
Having been in the stone industry now for 36 years, I have always been concerned that homeowners were informed about how to care for their new stone, but many fabricators I have talked with simply don’t care. They just want to focus on installing more countertops.
Over the years when I ask what sealer they use, or what method they use, MOST fabricators have extraordinarily weak answers. Many do not use proven professional grade products, and unfortunately many do a quicky job of wiping on some sealer, wiping it off, and think that will protect porous granite, or worse, marble surfaces.
We receive hundreds of phone calls from frustrated homeowners saying that “My fabricator sealed my granite, but it is still staining”. This is rather unfortunate, because the solution is very simple:
1. Use a professional grade impregnator like HMK S34, AND
2. Apply it correctly.
Then, you can count on lasting results.
