Granite countertops have spent decades in many homes, and they are becoming ever the more popular. They are the perfect addition to any home remodeling project. While marble is also popular, it is very expensive and can be damaged relatively easily. Granite, on the other hand, needs little to no maintenance. Durability is key when you have a kitchen, especially when you have kids, as things can happen. Similarly, marble does not do well with any kinds of scratching, and granite has characteristics that are quite different. Yearly cleaning is all that is necessary, and all you must do is seal it, which takes a few minutes at most.
Who doesn’t want beautiful countertops in their home? This is a goal for many and with granite, you have the freedom to pick and choose how you like. The colors are available in an incredible array, with whites, pinks, and lots of different varieties of gray. Uniqueness is also key, and the minerals in granite are always different meaning that you will have a one of a kind piece no matter what.
Granite is the quintessential material, as it is heat & scratch resistant. If you are pulling something out of the oven, go ahead and place that tray directly on the table. You will see no difference in the material whatsoever. Similarly, cutting directly on the table is fine, as you will create no marks on the countertops. Lastly, you will also be able to avoid having stained countertops. This is because the seal on the countertops ensures that the surface is non-porous, which brings us to our final point.
Granite is one of the most sanitary materials to use in a home, as it is non-porous if sealed correctly. This means that while it will not stain, and in addition to this it will not harbor any bacteria that could lead to illness.
