At Capital Granite, customer education is one of our top priorities, which is why we will spend time teaching you how to prevent problems with your specific stone before they arise. Each type of stone will have its own specific tips for prevention, but here are some general tips to get started:
- We recommend using coasters under all glasses, particularly those containing alcohol or citrus juices.
- Many stones can withstand heat, but the use of trivets or mats is recommended.
- In some cases, we also recommend applying a routine sealant as an extra precaution against staining. Although we apply a sealer to every top that we fabricate, each stone possesses unique characteristics, so re-sealing frequencies will vary. We will explain the advantages and disadvantages to sealing when discussing your specific project.
