Frequently Asked Questions

Granite is a natural stone made of several different mineral composites. It is ideal for countertops because of its durability and natural beauty. Because granite is natural,  each slab, while similar with their lots, does hold individual characteristics that vary from slab to slab.

Marble is a beautiful stone that while it is not as durable as granite does hold a much more uniform and aesthetically pleasing color and texture.

A manmade stone that is less durable than granite  however can come in a much greater variety of colors and more uniform patterns.

We also work with quartzite as well as manmade stones such as Silestone, Hanstone, Cambria and Geos recycled glass.

After our team measures a job, we create a template.  The customer can then visit our shop to do a layout session to choose the best places on the stone for the individual pieces as well as the seam placement if seams are necessary.

We do not caulk granite to the walls.  We adhere the countertops to the cabinets and caulk splashes to the countertops.

We do not reconnect plumbing and suggest that the plumbing remain off for 24 hours to ensure proper drying time of the silicone at the sink.

The sealer typically lasts one year on average. This depends highly on how often you use your countertops and the products you use to clean them.  Graniteman can come reseal countertops for you or we can point you in the direction to order the product yourself.  We are also happy to answer any questions regarding the best cleaning methods.

After natural stone is installed we seal all surfaces. It is optimal to wait 24 hours  before using the countertops.
