Does a food safe life time granite sealer exist?
To be honest, I didn't know granite needs to be sealed until our remodel. I think many people, even those who own granite countertop, don't think about it unless their top starts to look weird. So, when I told DH that one advantage quartz over granite is it does not require sealing, DH argues that granite does not need it either -- that's what his colleagues told him.
Anyway, one fabricator we talked to did not help the matter. He claims that the granite he fabricates and installs is sealed for life time. That got me thinking... if that stuff exists, why don't all fabricators use it? I'm all suspicious about it now.
I must say the thought of having some chemicals over the countertop for sealing is further driving me towards quartz. But I know the overwhelming majority of countertops (of non-laminate) out there probably are still granite.
