GENERAL GRANITE WARRANTY GUIDELINES
Your Granite countertop is backed by a 25 year limited warranty on manufactured deficiencies. Your Granite countertop is also backed by a 1 year limited warranty, which covers the fabrication and installation from the time it is originally installed.

The countertops must be cared for in accordance with the guidelines set forth in order for the warranty to be valid.
