The Advantage of Granite

Are you considering getting granite countertops or granite surfaces for your home? It’s very important that you look into the advantages of this resilient product. Granite can add amazing value to your home and it looks absolutely spectacular in countertops and other surfaces. Granite has long been one of the top choices for homeowners and builders for over 100 years. Here are some of the top advantages that you can receive by changing surfaces in your home over to granite.

  1. Heat resistance: unlike many other materials, granite countertops are not nearly as susceptible to damage caused from heat. While we always advise the use of a hot pad, or custom trivet, it is possible to put hot kitchen utensils and more directly on the surface without ruining its integrity. There aren’t too many building products available that can boast the same level of heat resistance.
  2. Density unlike any other surface: because of the density of natural granite, it’s extremely resistant to every day use. This is perhaps one of the biggest benefits of choosing granite – it lasts.
  3. Ease of maintenance: granite really is an easy material to maintain. A little granite cleaner and annual sealing is all you need. Furthermore, some types of granite do not even require sealing. If you’re curious about proper care and maintenance, we’d love to answer any questions you may have. Just contact us today.
  4. Unique decor touches: each slab of granite completely unique. This means that your countertop will be entirely different than anyone else’s. We even offer the option for you to assist in the layout of your slabs. That way, you know you’re simply going to love your granite countertops. If you’re looking for a unique decor touch that will add value to your home, granite is most definitely the way to go. You can get a unique natural product that’s different than any other surface you might encounter.
