- Granite is a very hard stone and 100 percent natural. Quarried from all around the world, cut down to a manageable size, and then polished to a fine finish.
- Granite comes in many different colors and patterns due to the way it’s formed (cooling and solidifying of molten materials).
Whether you’re looking for a subtle complement to your kitchen or a standout slab with unique mineral inclusions, there is an almost limitless selection to choose from and no two granite countertops are the same.
- The only way granite ends up in your kitchen is if it’s quarried.
If you opt for a high-end slab from Italy, for example, there will be considerable transportation involved.
- Granite countertops should be cleaned daily with soap and water or a mild household cleaner.
Some oils and acids can stain so do your homework first to avoid stains.
To ensure the longevity of your investment, consider having your countertops resealed once a year.
- Granite is a durable material that’s resistant to heat and many other kitchen elements.
Due to the fact that Granite is porous, there can be some staining if spilled liquids are left sitting and damage can be done if your counter receives a solid impact.
