How To Choose The Perfect Granite Work Surface

Written by Edward Green

Continued from page 1

I have received numerous calls lately concerningrepparttar fading of black granite counter tops. Black granite should not fade. Black granite imported from Asia is sometimes doctored with dyes and oils to darkenrepparttar 100446 surface. The fading is nothing more thanrepparttar 100447 dyes and oils being removed. Unfortunately,repparttar 100448 only fix is to re-polishrepparttar 100449 top. This can be costly.

Before purchasing a granite top performrepparttar 100450 following test to find out if it has been doctored.

Get a clean white cloth and apply some acetone (nail varnish remover) torepparttar 100451 surface ofrepparttar 100452 granite. If any residue or black color is observed onrepparttar 100453 top, do not accept it, it has been dyed.

Take a piece ofrepparttar 100454 "granite" you want to test and spill a few drops of lemon juice onto it. If you see that underrepparttar 100455 drops of lemon it develops very quickly dark spots, it means that it's a very absorbent stone and I would advise you against it. If it takes, say, a minute or so to be absorbed, then you're dealing with a level of absorbency that's easily controllable withrepparttar 100456 application of a good quality impregnating sealer.

So, in short be careful where you place your order and always seek specialist advice. The void between a good stone and a bad stone is huge,repparttar 100457 price between a good stone and a bad stone is smaller than you think but can be costlier.
