Restoring Silestone and Quartz Kitchen Counters

Q: We have a Silestone kitchen counter which has developed some "dulling" in a couple of areas. One was due to someone rubbing to hard with a slightly abrasive cloth and the others are due to the sun shining on the counter. Is there anything/anyone who can restore the factory polish shine to Silestone?

 A: Stone and Tile PRO Partner Gregg Laviolette, owner of Stone Restoration Services (SRS) in Troy, Michigan, who is specifically trained in Silestone restoration, says that Silestone, which is 94% quartz, can be refinished to remove the dulling spots on your kitchen counter.  The process involves using diamond tooling, designed especially for quartz to refinish the countertop and blend the entire surface with quartz-specific polishes.
