Granite Countertops

Granite has been a popular countertop and tile choice for several decades now. This very hard, granular, crystalline and igneous rock consists mainly of quartz, mica, and feldspar and is a one-of-a-kind design for your kitchen or bath.

Advantages Of Granite Countertops

Granite may be an excellent choice for your countertops whether you are looking at a vanity, kitchen island, fireplace surround, or kitchen counters. Granite is second only to diamond in terms of hardness in natural materials and it can be the last countertop you’ll ever need. Granite is excellent for resisting chipping, scratching, and cracking and it’s extremely heat resistant.

Maintaining granite is easy but it must be properly sealed before use. Once sealed, granite will resist staining and any bacteria, and it makes clean up a breeze with simple soap and water. Granite provide sustained free counter surface that will look new for decades and will boast your home’s value offering an attractive alternative to Formica, laminate, or wood materials.

Granite is slightly more durable than quartz. Quartz is a man-made, consistent stone well granted is all natural. Granite is formed in intense heat and is naturally impervious to high temperatures. This means you can set a hot pot or pan directly on the surface while quartz is not nearly as heat resistant. Low-quality brands of quartz have been known to discolor under crockpots and electric skillets and is easier to scratch than granite.

Disadvantages Of Granite Countertops

Granite can chip but it is easily repaired. Most large home improvement stores have granite repair kits but remember, because it’s a natural stone you will not have two exact colors alike. When you choose granite, you choose the actual stone you will be getting. Because quartz is a man-made substance, the coloring remains consistent. Granite is a natural stone just like marble so the piece you pick out is the piece you’re going to get.

Remember that because granite comes in large sheets, you will most likely have seams in your granite countertops. Depending on the color of granite you choose the average slab size could vary. Many large islands can typically be done without seams, but L-shaped or U-shaped countertops will probably have at least one or two seams. Our experts come as close as possible, so the seam practically disappears.

Granite Countertop Maintenance

Granite may need re-sealing over time to maintain its durability and shine. Granite sustainability and its renewable resource makes granite an excellent option for bathrooms, countertops, and fireplace surrounds.
