FAQ: Can Granite Chip?

We are often asked if granite can chip.
The short answer: Yes.

The long answer: It's not easy to chip and it rarely happens. We just didn't want to lie to you & say that it never happens!

We have seen some rare cases, but most are from abnormal abuse with a hammer or impact tool. If a chip does occur it can be filled with a granite dust and epoxy mixture and will be virtually unnoticeable.
This can happen to any type of countertop surface including quartz. Unfortunately, nothing is completely indestructible!  If you want the most durable surface though, granite & quartz are definitely the way to go.
