Galaxy Black Granite Countertop Tips

J at | General,Real Estate | Thursday, July 8th, 2010

So you’re thinking of moving into your new home after you purchased your house and lot package several months ago. You look at your kitchen and sink area countertop, and you know you want to install the popular Galaxy Black granite. Here are some tips you’ll find useful…

1. Wait two to four days after installation.

Granite is porous. That means that it can absorb water or moisture. During installation, some moisture will seep into your granite countertop, and this will give it a “wet” look.

I know you’re excited, but you need to wait two to four days for the moisture to evaporate.

2. Have your granite countertop sealed.

After the moisture has dissipated, have your granite supplier or installer apply a granite sealer to your entire countertop using a paper towel.

3. Wait for 24 hours.

Yes, you’re so excited to enjoy your beautiful Galaxy Black granite countertop, but please give the sealant 24 hours to dry. By being patient, you will protect your countertop from unnecessary stains.

4. Okay, enjoy your lovely granite countertop.

Congratulations! It wasn’t easy to wait an entire day. Now you and your friends and family can admire your shiny and clean granite countertop. At least it will make washing the dishes more fun, as you stand there and stare at the smooth surface surrounding your professionally installed kitchen sink.
