Granite is a popular choice for kitchen counters since it is an incredibly durable and hard natural stone, making it highly resistant to scratches, cracks, and chips. Granite is available in a wide range of colors, patterns, and finishes. Each slab is unique, offering a beautiful and distinct appearance that adds a luxurious and elegant touch to any kitchen décor. Granite countertops have a long lifespan, often outlasting other countertop materials.
Granite has low porosity, meaning it doesn’t absorb liquids easily. This makes it highly resistant to stains from common kitchen spills such as oil, wine, or coffee. Regular sealing helps maintain its stain-resistant properties.
Granite countertops are easily cleaned with dish soap and warm water, using a soft towel. Never use anything acidic or abrasive, including Windex, Bleach (Clorox and wipes), Lysol, or Pledge. When additional cleaning is needed a 50/50 mix of water and 91% isopropyl alcohol can be used.
Granite has a natural heat resistance that allows it to withstand high temperatures without damage. You can place hot pots and pans directly on the granite surface without worrying about burning or melting the countertop.
Installing granite countertops can increase the value and appeal of your home. Many home buyers view granite countertops as a desirable feature, potentially fetching a higher resale price.
