Granite

Granite countertops stand out as the ultimate choice for kitchen surfaces due to their exceptional hardness, ensuring unparalleled durability. The advantages of granite include:

Heat Resistance: Although we recommend using hot pads or trivets, accidentally placing a hot pan on a granite countertop won’t cause any damage or discoloration.

Scratch Resistance: While we discourage chopping vegetables directly on the countertop, it’s unlikely to cause scratches; however, it may dull the finish over time and your knives rather quickly, so using a cutting board is advisable.

Stain Resistance: With the application of a natural-stone sealer, granite countertops become resistant to stains. Promptly wiping up spills, particularly from acidic foods or liquids like vinegar or tomato sauce, is advisable for optimal protection. Inquire about our exclusive 25-Year Sealer for lasting defense.

Low Maintenance: Keeping your granite countertop sparkling clean is a breeze with mild dish soap like Dawn or Joy and a soft cloth. Avoid using commercial cleaners or abrasives, including the abrasive “scrungy” side of a kitchen sponge, as they can dull the finish.

Return on Investment: Granite countertops not only enhance a home’s value but also expedite its sale, making them a sound investment.

Colors and Patterns: The versatility of granite shines through its wide array of colors and patterns, spanning from light to dark, encompassing neutral shades, warm earth tones, and dynamic blacks. The patterns range from subtle to bold and dramatic. Opting for the more exotic granite ensures a one-of-a-kind touch to your home, as these stones are truly unique.

KEY FACTORS TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT

Simplifying the decision between granite, quartz, marble, and quartzite becomes clearer when you identify your priorities. Consider these three questions:

Stain, Scratch, or Etch Resistance: Evaluate your countertop needs—do you prioritize stain resistance, scratch resistance, or etching prevention? Granite excels in stain and scratch resistance, quartzite is better at resisting etching, while marble, with our 25-Year Sealer, resists stains but may still exhibit etching. Quartz countertops boast high resistance to all three: staining, etching, and scratching.

Budget for Remodel: Budget considerations play a role, with granite typically being the most economical and quartzite at the higher end. To manage costs, you can allocate your preferred countertop material to specific areas, like the kitchen, and opt for a complementary, more budget-friendly material for bathroom countertops.

Aesthetic Fit for Your Home: The pivotal question revolves around which material and color will complement your home best. Ultimately, all modern countertop surfaces, including marble, offer lasting durability with proper care.

Each countertop material comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages, and the final decision rests in your hands. Regardless of whether you choose granite, quartz, marble, or quartzite, rest assured that your selection will result in a beautiful, long-lasting countertop that you and your family will appreciate for many years to come.
