How to Repair a Chip in a Granite Countertop

Granite is a popular choice for countertops because it is durable and has a natural beauty. However, it is not indestructible, and a hard impact can cause a chip. If your granite countertop has a chip, you'll want to repair it as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

There are several ways to repair a chip in granite, but the most important thing is to use the right tools and materials. You'll need a hammer, chisel, and epoxy.

First, use the hammer and chisel to remove any loose pieces of granite from the chip. Next, clean the area with a damp cloth.

Mix the epoxy according to the manufacturer's instructions and apply it to the chip. Use a putty knife to smooth it out, and then allow it to dry.

Once the epoxy has dried, sand the area smooth. You may need to use a finer grit sandpaper to get a completely smooth surface.

Finally, polish the area with a granite polishing compound. This will make the area look like new again.
