How do I repair little chips in the edges of my granite countertop?

Any tips on how to repair chipped granite? It is Ubatuba so I imagine some material that is black or clear would be best.

    You will need nail polish remover to clean the granite surface, straight razor blades, thick super glue (gel), and if you have a darker Granite Countertop you might want to have dark Sharpie marker. Start cleaning your chipped area with nail polish remover. Let the Granite air dry. Tape off the area surrounding the chip and apply just enough glue to fill the chip and rise just slightly above the surface of the stone. Filling the glue up to within flush of the surface of the tape should be sufficient. Once the super glue has completely dried and the tape removed, use a straight razor blade to remove the excess Super glue by “fanning” the excess material away. Wait and allow the glue to cure before cutting with the razor. The time it takes for the glue to cure depends on how deep the chip was, the humidity in the home, etc.(This next step only applies if you have darker Granite) Once desired results are achieved, you may wish to use a colored permanent marker such as a black Sharpie to color the super glue. A Sharpie is permanent and dries quickly. For lighter colored stones, this may not be necessary.

    I don't recomend useing nail polish remover. I recomend useing Metholated spirit's instead. I have a marble coffe table and I use Metholated spirit's to clean the top. I would allso check with your local hardweare store to, just to be sure on the procces for fixing the chips. I think granite is similar to marble so it's best to be sure! Hope this info helps.

    Maybe speak to a Stone mason and ask them. Could be they could fix it for you easier than you could do it yourself Mixing resin and granite dust????

    I have found that if I use Model car CA glue it works better than the thick Super glue gel. Or Krazy glue works well and follow Williams instructions. I used blue painters tape and edge the counter. Fill with glue. Let dry completely you can speed that up with an excellerator such as alcohol or let it sit overnight. I have re-edged my counter above t he dishwasher and it has lasted so far for over 5 years.

  • They make repair kits for this. Check in your local home improvement store.
