Will I have to seal or reseal my countertop?

Bedrock Granite Co. seals your stone with STAIN-PROOF, a permanent sealer for a care-free lifetime of use. We’re skill-certified by the manufacturer, and include this permanent sealing free of charge when we craft your countertop (others charge as much as $500 for it). Typically, other fabricators will seal your stone and advise you to reseal it every year.

The manufacturers of engineered stone often sell against natural stone by saying, “Granite (marble, limestone, etc.) is porous! It will stain!” This is true IF THE STONE IS NOT SEALED. In its natural state all stone is porous (except for soapstone), which is why it is critical to seal it before using it for countertops.

FYI, engineered quartz materials are designed to be non-porous and do not require sealers.
