Repairing Granite Scratches (Shelby Township, MI)

Repairing granite scratches isn’t quite as easy. If your stone is scratched, a stone care professional would come in with an electric machine (grinder, etc.) and sand the scratch out using a series of diamond pads, buffer pads, felt pads, and possibly a chemical polish such as tin oxide.

The grit of the pads and the number of steps taken depends on the the scratch, the type of stone and the finish on your stone.


Can you fix scratches yourself?

Not usually. Surface polishing is definitely not a do it yourself project. This is an art and irreversible damage can occur. It’s even possible to make the scratch worse by leaving a dip in the stone or losing the luster of the surface. According to natural-stone-interiors.com
