Hi,
New member here, but a long-time member of LumberJocks where I usually post. Need some DIY repair help on fixing chips in a granite countertop we had installed 2 yrs ago.
My wife found a company called ProCaliber Products-website is www.acrylicrepair.com that has a light curing acrylic for repairing chips (think of the light your dentist uses to cure acrylic fillings).
Has anyone here repaired granite with this product? Any recommendations of other products for doing this.
We’re trying to avoid the additional expense of calling someone in for an estimate.

Another question for you refurbishers along the same lines-what do you think of the granite countertop craze?
My wife and I actually use our kitchen-we cook a lot, using heavy pots and pans. She was sold on the beauty of granite at first, but after two years and numerous chips on both the surface and edges she’s definitely against using it as a countertop material when we build our retirement home (is leaning now towards composites like quartzite).

Opinions on this subject are welcome. My own is that the granite craze is just a phase that new homebuyers are going through, and will pass like the Corian phase did (or the crushed stone in planting beds, faux finishes, etc. crazes). But builders and refurbishers have to “give the customer what they want”
Thanks for the help.
Gerry

Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweaks would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Cheers Buy YouTube Views

Some people are not happy when buying a product which out of his hope. I have problems with a computer which is only 3 days from I purchased. We just need to pay attention on the cleanliness of the product. Especially when we do out bond activity. We have shared many tips to take care of the product.
We also provide Rinjani trekking guide and Mount Rinjani trekking package in Lombok Indonesia Asia. Rinjani guide
