Granite

Have installed granite counter tops, year ago. Never knew how easy it chipped till now. What are the ways to repair small chips, they are not seen so much, but when running hand over area they seem huge. Two are around sink so repair would have to stand up to the water. As always thanks for the forum and the help.

Wow, most granite's are very difficult to damage. The chips can be filled with epoxy. It's a similar method to how installers seam sections of granite. The area is thoroughly cleaned and epoxy is mixed and tinted to match the stone. If it's just a surface chip you can just put the epoxy in making sure to not trap an air bubble at the bottom. I would over fill the hole slightly. Then after the epoxy cures you can slide a straight blade razor across the surface to shave off whatever is sticking up.
