Granite Shield - About Us

 

How Granite Shield Got Started 

 

 Customers now are seeking granite countertops that have a longer lasting sealer on them other than the traditional sealer that may only last weeks, months or not even that. Granite Shield, the first company to offer a true lifetime sealer and still to this day no other company can out perform Granite Shield’s permanent lifetime process. With granite by Granite Shield Countertops or granite sealed by Granite Shield you don't have to worry about rushing to wipe up spills, worry about acidic liquids, using coasters or placemats ever again. With granite sealed permanently by Granite Shield we mean it's permanently sealed, never has to be sealed again, has a lifetime warranty, not a limited warranty limiting you to use special cleaners and follow special maintenance procedures like other companies. If a company tells you or it's in writing you have to wipe up spills immediately, use coasters and placemats tells you the sealer that's being used isn't a very dependable sealer.

Craig Phillips is the creator of the Granite Shield permanent granite lifetime sealing process. Granite Shield was started and developed in 2002. Many independent granite fabricators throughout the United States have been offering their customers Granite Shield's permanent lifetime sealing process since 2002.

Craig has been in the home improvement industry since 1982 and his background includes owning a custom shutter factory for approximately 15 years and was a kitchen designer and top salesperson for all types of countertops including Home Base and Home Depot for approximately 9 years. Owner of a granite fabrication shop and installation of all types of countertops. Having sold granite and engineered stone countertops for many years Craig noticed the main reason why the public does not choose granite for their countertop needs has been because of the high expense, maintenance and staining issues.

Granite Shield achieves their lifetime sealing process for granite using proprietary catalyzing polymers. These chemicals are not standard sealers purchased over the counter but specifically made for Granite Shield by their chemists and can't be found anywhere else or used by anyone else other than an authorized Granite Shield applicator or fabricator.

Craig developed back in 2002 the permanent sealing process for granite using different catalyzing polymers. Depending if the granite is considered light, medium or dark, each type of stone takes a different application process and then is capped with catalyzing polymers with a permanent carbon crystal sealant which then locks the catalyzing polymer into the stone. The carbon crystal sealant forms a molecular bond with the granite which can not be removed thus creating a lifetime seal plus leaving your granite more vibrant, smoother, shinier and maintenance free. The Granite Shield sealing process has no wax, plastic, silicone or resins and it is a breathable, penetrating sealer. It is not topical and will not scratch or yellow.

Granite Shield is the first and only to have this process, don't be fooled by imitators even if it's a well known company. If it doesn't say Granite Shield, it's not permanently shielded with a lifetime warranty like Granite Shield.

Since 2002 Granite Shield Sealing Service customers have requested a line of aftercare products for the hard surfaces the Granite Shield Licensed Applicators seal. 2010 Granite Shield Products was created and available direct from the manufacture cleaning and sealing products custom ordered and blended per order for each customer.

For those that insist on doing it themselves Granite Shield has now added a DIY kit lifetime granite sealer.
