Granite Tile Kitchen Counters – Easy, with Machine Polished Edges!

Another customer in our local market recently decided to have the granite tile for his wife’s kitchen countertop machine polished after trying to hand edge and polish the job himself. He told me that an equipment dealer had convinced him that hand-polishing granite tile wasn't that hard to do. And since he considered himself a fairly handy craftsman, it was an easy sale. But, after destroying several tiles and a whole Saturday, he came to the same conclusion that most do-it-yourselfers come to: granite tile is not only hard -- it is hard to work with!

And that’s one of the main reasons the folks at™ developed their precision machine polishing system. They reasoned that since the top surface of the granite tile used for kitchen countertops is machine-ground and polished to a visually perfect finish, why not the bullnosed edge also? Good question.

And since it is a good question, I thought I would make a few posts discussing granite tile and what makes it so beautiful, desirable, and hard to work with all at the same time.
So, in my next few posts, I plan to deal with the subject of granite tile, what makes it so hard to polish, and why you don’t have to worry about it!

With™ you really can do a great job yourself on your own kitchen (and bathroom) countertops!
