Filling Granite Countertop Pits

QUESTION:

I have used a penetrating sealer on my granite countertop, but what can I use as a surface sealer to fill in all the pits in the stone?

ANSWER:

Thanks for the picture! Most granite slabs won't have pits, although any slab of granite could develop a few pits over time. Typically not a big deal.

You can do this granite countertop maintenance / repair and fill small pits yourself with the Granite & Marble Repair Kit for chips and pits.

Pros will use an epoxy or resin adhesive for granite repair of pits, but they can rarely get an exact color match. Thus, the repair is always visible.

The above product is much easier to use than an epoxy (don't need a pro to do it) and dries level and clear, so you can't even see the repair!

A granite that already has pits at installation is likely a bit prone to pitting, so you may have to perform this repair as regular maintenance.

Fortunately, this chip & pit granite repair kit blends the color and pattern perfectly (essentially invisible), so it will help maintain the beauty of the granite over time.
