Granite it worth it?

makemynemusic's picture

I'm in the process of installing new countertops in my condo, and have chosen Kashmire White granite. The installer is "highly recommending" that I purchase the option of applying [U]Granite Shield[/U]. This is a one time application of sealer that is covered by a Lifetime Sealing Warranty. Sounds great, but for my little kitchen, this is going to add 267.00 plus gst to the cost.

Worth it? Any input would be greatly appreciated. My sister has granite tops and seals them 2 x a year...she says it's no big deal.

Thanks for the input. I think I'll stick with the regular standard seal and look after the maintenance myself. Even a mini-reno adds up, so it helps to cut costs where I can!
