    How do I repair acid damaged top layer of Granite / Stone Kitchen worktop?

    Aghhh! .. I should not have left leaked the oven cleaning liquid on top of my new granite top (I think its' what it's called).

    Now big area of the surface is damaged like this prnt.sc/f5y42w and I have tried wickes.co.uk/Ltp…832 which doesn't even help tiny bit restoring the glossy top layer.

    Any advice and tips will be massively appreciated.

    Is it residue or etched?

    Get over to the screwfix forum and post there I would. There is a kitchen fitters section. This is the link I think community.screwfix.com/for…10/

    I'd would claim on you insurance. Pretty sure you need to neutralise the acid, lap the granite across the whole of the worktop to keep it level.

    Paint it gloss black

    BTW granite is radio active . On the safe side put your lead underpants on.

    Etched. I think. The top gloss layer is gone revealing the actual stone surface underneath.

    Oh. No. I rather not to have entire top replaced as it is less than 12 months old. I wonder if anyone has any luck with repairing the top coat.

    Try contacting the company who installed it?
    They may be able to come back out and rebuff it for you?!

    You can only polish down till you achieve the required finish. The skill is in keeping all the worktops as level as possible so you don't have any dips. Hope deep does the damage go and is it still active ?

    I can do. By the look of undamaged area, some kind of clear coat was applied on stone surface. So I was wondering where or how I could apply that coating again on damaged area.

    The surface will need to be sanded and polished. Look up granite repair in London to find a specialist.

    Could possible not of been polished but sealed with something. What does the care instructions say about your worktop ?

    I meant that you should contact them so that they can give you a quote to fix it.

    They will have records of the specific finish you have on the surface so can hopefully get it back to what it was.

    If you want it to look good I think you will have to get it professionally done.
