I have just installed granite tile in my kitchen, and the tile has retained a lot of moisture, altering the color and finish. As well, the tiles show varying amounts of moisture. I am wondering how long I should wait before I seal the tile, and when I seal it, will the sealent be absorbed and change the color as well?

Give it a few weeks, it all should come back to the normal color after it all cures and drys, most granites don't have to be sealed, someone with more stone experience will be along.:)

The moisture will usually go away overnight. Otherwise, a couple of days should do it..
