Information about Granite Countertops

The popularity of granite surfaces in the home is soaring. But granite has and always will be a timeless and classic feature of any home. Granite, virtually indestructible, is a beautiful material on floors and countertops. Countertops in monochromatic shades of black, white and gray can fit the latest high-tech and high-function kitches, while warm earth tones are at home in traditional and country kitchens. Some granites seem to exhibit 'movement' or a pattern-like wave of color.

Standard Countertop Nosing

Granite is more durable than marble. The silicon based sealant that should be applied to granite every 3-5 years, seals the granite about 99%. Hot pots and pans will not damage a granite surface.

Granite Advantages:

  • Durable scratch-resistant surface
  • Endless patterns and colors
  • Each piece unique
  • Lasting value (granite lasts forever)
  • Will not burn when hot pots are set on it
  • Stain resistant (stains can be removed)
  • Harbors no bacteria
  • Can be repaired if ever scratched
