Cloudiness on an Emerald Pearl Granite countertop.

We had this countertop installed two weeks ago and in one section, there was a scratch. So, we had the installer come back to buff it out and re-seal it. It was cloudy.

So, we had him return and re-do the process. It was still cloudy. He told us that he needed to use a different "head" for his buffer. This Tuesday he returned, buffed it out, re-sealed it, re-polished it and told us to leave it untouched for 48 hours. Guess's still cloudy.

My husband is livid. I just wonder if it's something I can fix, or do we need the whole piece replaced which means lifting out the new cooktop which makes me crazy.

Any ideas out there?

Did you ever polish it ?Once a year youre suppose to polish it.

What is the counter made of?

If the installer cannot repair the scratch to look like rest of the counter, have them take it out and put in a new counter that is not scratched and looks the same.

Counter tops cost too much to settle for a flawed one from day one.
