How can I tell if my granite needs to be sealed?

A very basic question that surely every fabricator knows the answer to but is asked a lot by homeowners. The best way to determine if your granite counter tops should be sealed is by sprinkling a bit of water on to the surface of the stone and observe what happens. If the stone absorbs the water, than you should start looking into sealers. If the water beads up (as shown in the image) than the stone is not absorbing the water and your sealer is fine for the time being.

Water Beading On Granite

Some of the more popular manufactures of sealer include Miracle Sealants, Aqua Mix, and Dupont’s StoneTech Professional.
