We provide a one (1) year warranty from the date of completion, on workmanship only
There is no warranty against shade variation, staining, scratching or wear on natural stone surfaces. All merchandise is sold “AS IS” condition and there are no warranties of any kind for natural stone. Normal housekeeping is the best way to maintain your granite. Clean your stone after each meal or countertop use. If a person cleans after each meal, there is very little possibility of ever staining the granite countertop. Clear warm water or a stone cleaner can be used to remove surface scum, food and/or any other deposits left on the surface. No other soaps, detergents, or cleaners should be used on the stone.
Grease is the enemy
Of particular hazard to stone are oils, fats, grease, and products containing these types of items. Extra care should be taken to avoid products with grease residues being exposed to your natural stone for prolonged periods of time. Please avoid water and other liquids to puddle on the countertop surfaces, which could leave rings or other marks. (i.e., moisture from sweating glasses, and flower pots, etc.)
Your countertops are sealed when you purchase them
The purpose of a sealer is to increase stain resistance so that the natural stone repels dirt and water. The sealer penetrates the stone, thereby, reducing absorption of dirt and staining agents. Sealing will not eliminate all staining. Spills should be wiped off immediately to prevent stains from settling into the stone. It is recommended to apply sealers periodically. A sealer must be used made specifically for marble and granite. Use a type of sealer that is penetrating (invisible) and does not leave a film on the surface.
Heavy weight can stress countertops
Natural stone is not a structural support product. Avoid placing heavy weight on the countertops and especially placing stress on the thin strips in front of the cook top and sink.
