Chips along the seam will occur, particularly in the igneous stone varieties, as a result of the sawing operations from the diamond blade used to cut granite.  A small chamfer, called arris, of approximately 1/16″ x 1/16″ can be used to eliminate chips.  When using arris it will make the seam appear wider than its actual dimension.  However, larger chips are usually repaired with epoxy or polyester resin if the repair is consistent in color and texture.   

Understand that the presence of any of these characteristics adds to the uniqueness of your material, and in the majority of cases does not compromise the durability of your product. 

Concerns about your stone countertops and chips along the seam or any other question. Be sure to ask one of our countertop professionals right here at HMKS Stone Solutions.
