faded granite

Q. I have a granite table with a laquer finish that has been removed. With the use of silica sand to smooth it and clorox and water to clean it, the grey, silver and black faded to a much lighter color. I heard to darken it, you can use a dye resin. Can you tell me the name of this product and where can I get it, or can it be restored to its original color. I would appreciate all the help you can give me.

A. Apply a good quality enhancing sealer. It will give you that ’wet’ look (how it looks when it’s wet), available at Stone Care Central.

I would also recommend that you download our Stone and Tile Care Guide for tips and info on how to properly care for your granite.

IMPORTANT: You always want to test an inconspicuous area first to see if you like the results.
