Re: Engineered Granite vs. Natural

Again, on granite only calcite based stones is acidic liguids and alcohol not covered. They even recommend using denatured alcohol to clean granite. If you spill wine on other granite should it stain it is under warranty.

on their web site they also say that granite is very pourous. granite averages from .05 to .04 and porcelain is at .04 . so my question is, should you seal your toilet and sink also?

and those averages were taken from mia's website

sealers are one of the things that are over sold and over recommended usually by those who are either trying to make a buck selling sealers, competition who are trying to exagerate the need for sealers, or those who are simply parroting what they were told and really lack knowledge in the area

A quote from the Granite Shield website:

“My name is Karan Barber and I am the Granite Shield Distributor for this area. This product is terrific. It truly is amazing! We have Shielded several types of stone and put them to the test. We put red wine, red Kool-Aid, iodine, brake fluid, oven cleaner, lemon juice etc. on the shielded stone, left it for 24 hours and it wiped right off with a wet paper towel. Water beads on honed stone.”

Thanks,
