  5. Your site is very informative. We have got graynite fixed in the courtyard.Should we have buffing only?what else?Does it include polishing also?

    • Hello Sunit
      Thanks a lot for liking our article. Buffing or polishing depends on if it is a new or old installation. New granite is already polished so in case it is a bit dirty you would need only buffing. In case the granite is old and it has lost it’s shine you might want grinding and polishing as buffing cannot restore the shine of granite. If you are in Delhi/NCR you can share pictures of the granite on whats app number 9873420779. We can arrange a free site inspection to advise you what to do.
