How To Seal Granite Countertops & Other Natural Stones

Sealing Granite Countertops Is Simple

Do I need to hire a professional to seal granite countertops?
This is ONE of the most frequently asked questions we hear.

No Sealing Needed

Can the average homeowner seal their own stone?
Yes, it's quite easy to do if you have the time. Here's how:

  1. Uniformly apply the sealer to your granite countertop or other natural stone using a clean white rag or a brush.

  2. Allow the granite sealer to absorb into your stone for approximately 3 to 4 minutes.

  3. When the sealer is almost dry, apply a little more sealer on your granite and then rub it in with a dry, clean rag.

  4. Repeat on the next section of stone until your entire surface is sealed.

  5. Wait at least 24 hours and then apply a second application.

Hints & Tips

  • Work in a small area, 4 to 5 square feet.
  • If your stone needs to be sealed, at least two applications of sealer is recommended.
  • Wait at least 24 hours before reapplying the sealer.
  • NONE of the sealer is left on the surface of the stone.
  • To find out if your stone is sufficiently sealed, try the water test.
  • Not all granite needs to be sealed. Does yours?
