Question

Sander mark on absolute black granite windowsill + more


Hi all!

We are having a bathroom reno done and have had installed three elements (window sill, knee wall top, and threshold) in absolute black granite.

Now I have issues with all three. On the knee wall, the cut that was made to fit the wall is not glossy like the other surfaces, and looks lighter. On the threshold, there is a substantial chip that is visibly a much lighter color than the rest. On the windowsill, while trying to strip paint from the adjacent window, the sander hit the sill, creating a 1.5 inch long "scuff" in the finish.

Ideas? The threshold I could maybe ask the contractor to replace, but the knee wall isn't an "error" per se, and the window sill was my fault. Oy!

Unless you post some pictures it's hard to say.
A scratch on granite would require a diamond polishing pad to get it out and have it come out shiny again.

Thanks. I guess I'll have to call in a pro to do the edge on the knee wall, because it seems silly to lay out the cash for a polisher when I only have this project to do and have no clue what I'm doing.

I'll try to post some pics.
