The acrylic also dries to a high-gloss finish, which also makes the repair less noticeable, because light simply reflects off of both your granite and the repair.

The problem is we have many little cracks/holes throughout the entire countertop that look like this. Because it’s a natural stone it’s going to be filled with small cracks and pits which is why you need to reseal granite yearly. Each pit had a small fragment or two which wasn’t connected well to the base layer and when unsealed came detached.

Some granites contain more pitting than others, depending on the amount of biotite, or mica throughout the slab. If you have questions pertaining to pitting when selecting granite for your countertops, please ask. Light-curing acrylic fill should only be used on horizontal surfaces such as countertops, because it is fluid and does run. They appear at maybe 2 or 3 every square foot and vary in size, largest is probably 1/2 inch long and 1/32 deep.

More than likely the previous owners weren’t resealing annually (lots of people don’t or don’t think it’s that important) and/or were treating the countertop roughly.

You’ll be able to see them after repair but due to the fact that granite has an irregular patterning your guests probably won’t unless you point it out to them.
