COMMENT OF THE DAY: JUST CHECKING IN ON HOW EVERYONE’S KITCHEN COUNTER MAINTENANCE PROGRAM IS GOING “I keep hearing that you’re supposed to re-seal granite countertops once a year. Does anyone actually do this?” [Angostura, commenting on The Rise And Decline Of America’s Granite Countertops Obsession] Photo: MS International
I think most just take it for granite.
I thought it was every 5 years? And no, haven’t bothered either way.
Yes, and we all check our tire pressure every month, and change the air filter every 30 days.
My parents were early adopters – their granite has been in place for nearly 20 years, hasn’t received any maintenance, and looks like new.
In my experience, it depends on the granite. One slab in our house needed to be re-sealed every two or three years. Another hasn’t needed any re-sealing since the first time. In any case, I’ve never had to do it every year.
