Updating counter tops with granite

That is why we always encourage our clients to bring a sample of their cabinet when they visit to select their granite.The ideal coordination is to select a granite that contrasts enough with the cabinets and the natural speckles should have the hues of the cabinet color.The roll was just not the right length or width that we could do the entire countertop without splicing and we wanted to try applying a small portion first before we committed to laying the entire film down.So we cut a small piece where we needed to splice and started applying.Instant Granite sent us a 3′ x 12′ roll of their adhesive film to complete the project which was more than enough (we actually have some leftover that my husband plans to use on the counter around our sink in the garage).Before beginning the project of laying the Instant Granite film down we made sure to read all the instructions and watched a few videos on installation, and then we were ready to get started.You should avoid placing hot items on seams though.Granite counter seams are filled with special glue that may be affected by heat.

Eventually, this will leave a film on your tops unless you rinse off the tops very well after cleaning.
