Please accept my appology in advance if this has been cover recently.
I looked throught the archives and didn't really find the answer I was
looking for, so I'll ask the question and prepared to be yelled at if
it's a repeat.
I was recently fortunate enough to get, from the scrap pile of a local
granite counter manufacturer, enough granite to do all the counters in
my kitchen. I have learned how to shape, finish and polish the edges
to my satisfaction and I am even able to remove scratches from the
top and get almost back to the shine of the surrounding material, I
think I can match it with a little more polishing.
My question is what if anything would normally be used to fill the
small pits and natural surface defects in a granite counter to make it
easier to maintain. I saw a thread about Akemi filler and/or Aqua-Mix
Renew but I am looking for a bit more information before I jump on one
direction or the other. I have some stone enhancer sealer the the
local tile store recommends to seal the top, but if I need to worry
about the small pits in the surface I probably should fill before I
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
