Light granite and water seepage
I just bought a new house with granite countertops. My daughter left a wet cup on the countertop last night and when I moved it i noticed the water had seeped into the countertop. I read a few articles here and did the 10 minute test and while the water did bead up on top after 10 minutes some seeped into the counter. My countertops are light (Kashmir white maybe?) so when water gets in it turns dark grey. The builder says they put two coats of sealer on and that what I saw is pretty normal. Does this seem right? I feel like the first time we spill oil, or kool aid or cook bacon my countertops will get ruined. Any advice? Are there better sealers?
