What you can do is buy a small tube of clear silicone .Dry off the chipped spot completely and apply a very small amount to the hole.make sure to wipe excess silicone asap .let dry for 2 hours and tou should be good to go.

My Swanstone sink is sixteen years old and still in very good condition except for a small chip. The sink is a cream color with black and white specks. Is there any way to repair the sink?


You should be able to have a competent repair or restoration specialist from a reputable granite or marble fabrication shop come to your home and fix the problem. If it is a very small chip (less than an eighth of an inch around, my first try would be super glue. Keep in mind the fill will be fairly clear in color, which may match the dark specks, if not use an indelible marker after you smooth the glue to color it black. Use the gel type super glue if it is on a vertical portion of the sink, otherwise use a thinner variety. Clean the chip with sop and water, let it dry then use rubbing alcohol to remove any grease or oil residue. Use a masking type tape to isolate the chip so you have less work once the glue dries. Fill the chip and once the glue is dry, use a single edge razor (Use extreme caution, razors are by nature sharp) to gently scrape, not cut the glue flush to the sink surface. The manufacturers of these sinks claims they are difficult to scratch, but pay attention to your pressure or you might create scratches on the sink itself. Hold the blade perpendicular to the surface of the sink and take your time scraping the dried glue down changing to a fresh blade often. If the chip is in a radius area of the sink, you will have to be a bit more creative and probably use steel wool to remove the excess dried glue. I would start with #000 and see how that works, maybe using #00 to start the process and finish with #000 or #0000 steel wool to match the finish of your sink. If your chip is larger than an eighth of an inch around, I would recommend hiring a repair and restoration specialist from a competent granite fabrication shop to make a color matched epoxy to fill the blemish.

My tempered glass vessel sink exploded. Does this happen often?


No it doesn't and it is not supposed to. They didn't have the temper right and it should not have happened. The manufacturer will tell you that you must have chipped it or hit with something and the water temp made it burst. Don't buy it, Glass is tough, and when done right, does not explode easily. Hope this helps.

Try using super glue, the thinner the better the adhesion. Once it is dry hold a single edge razor blade (use extreme caution, razors by nature are very sharp) perpendicular to the surface of the stone and scrape the glue flush, changing blades regularly. Do not use the blade to cut, as it will dig in and pull glue and possibly stone out, as you have discovered. Just take your time and scrape the glue until it is flush with the granite. If the spots are dull, you can use a little carnuba wax (automotive/hardware store) to shine it up. Some types of granite have more texture due to differences in the makeup of the stone which also gives the variety of color. I have filled entire countertops with this method, and it is tedious, but yields good results.

Swanstone sink with chip near the faucet but on the edge near the bowl. ANyway to patch this...a filler so to speak?


Unfortunately Swanstone does not have a repair kit for this type of damage. The chip will be permanant. They do offer a limited lifetime warranty which if a defect is found they will repair or replace at their discretion. Of course you will be responsible for any labour cost as per their warranty and they do not go into any detail on how to repair impact damage. For more information go to www.theswancorp.com

I have a lovely Swanstone kitchen sink that got a chip in it about a quarter of an inch down. My son sanded it according to directions and then filled it. The only trouble is the filler darkened slightly...


if the filler can be easily removed then it wasn't cleaned and dried properly.

try it again, be sure to remove ALL the sanding dust from the surface and inside the chipped area.

be sure to get the correct color, some colrs are close, but slightly different when dry

Grainite floor has chipped


the best filler is epoxy,your best bet is to go to a marble and granite fabricating company,they will sell you the resin and they will tint it the right color, so all you have to do is add the hardener and fill where needed,they would probably charge you 5 to 10 dollars,this would save you from buying the epoxy resin,hardener,and the green tint, most of these shops that install granite have people there that will tell you how to apply it to your tiles.good luck

Small chip in granite countertop


Well you should seal your granite counter at least once every two years because granite is pourus. Theres something called Granite Guard you can use to seal your counters and other different sealers as well. You can pick some up at your local home and garden supply store.

Stuck switch


Ok, I did some research on the switch you are talking about. You might try a little vegitable oil, a tiny bit now so don't over do it and apply it between the outside edge and the button on the inside. On this type of switch, the plastic tends to grab when it is slightly worn. After you apply the lubricant try pushing several times on the switch to see if it will "let go". If not, the switches are only about $15 and are easily replaceable. Hope this helps.

Deep scratches on blanco granite sink


The only way to fix scratshes and chips from a granite surface is to use a sander. You would be safer to have the company thet installed it, resurface it. They have the proper equipment.
