The granite in this home was specified by an architect and approved by the homeowner, but without being tested for environmental suitability. Even though the stone behaved without issue in a drier climate, it began to discolor and degrade due to its proximity to the Pacific and exposure to salt-air. Various cleaning techniques only temporarily solved the staining; over time, more aggressive treatments and repairs will be needed.
