Is it necessary to seal stone?
All stone, even granite, is porous to some degree, and will absorb moisture over time. Some stones are more porous than others, so it is important to use a penetrating sealer to prevent stains from oil, wine, or other liquids from soaking into the surface. At stone ideas we seal the granite during the fabrication or installation process and we suggest that you seal your granite once a year.
