Does your natural granite benchtop need polishing? … YES

Granite benchtops or tables rarely need polishing but the most common issues we see are where the wrong cleaning process has been used to maintain the benchtop. With the most common damage being the use of harsh scourers to remove dull spots or hard materials from the surface. These cause dull spots on the polished finish and are generally in the most prominent areas.

How do we polish your granite benchtop, bar top and vanity?

These can be difficult to totally polish as granite is so hard. The hardness of the stone is great when thinking about the longevity of your benchtop, bar top or table but makes it hard to polish when damaged. We use special abrasives and polishing powders to return this gloss so that replacement is not required in most cases. You can see the result of polishing granite benchtop in the photo above.

Does your reconstituted granite benchtop need polishing? … YES

Ceasarstone, Essa Stone, Smart Stone, Quantum Quartz, Sile Stone and other reconstituted stone benchtops although very hard and stain resistant can be damaged when used incorrectly. This can be by such things as oven cleaner, hot pots and scourers which can all damaged the surface and then require grinding and polishing due to reflective issues.

How do we polish your reconstituted granite benchtop, bar top or vanity?

Each of the stones such as Ceasarstone require a slightly different process to polish them and even between the different colours require different processes. We therefore have a range of different polishes to create an exact uniform finish to the stone and also have a polishing process called Fusion, which we can complete to the reconstituted granite benchtops to improve even the factory gloss. This gives us many options to be able to produce the best finish and match possible to most reflective issues.

We can polish all reconstituted granite benchtops including:

  • Caeserstone
  • Essa Stone
  • Quantum Quartz
  • Silestone
  • Smart Stone
  • Other imported stone benchtops
