Countertops are a very important part of any home. They serve both a practical and aesthetic function. But with so many different choices out there, which countertop material is right.
Stone slab countertops such as granite are quarried from dozens of countries around the world. The wide array of naturally occurring colors and veining make it one of the most popular countertop choices on the market.
The durability and longevity of Granite make it ideal for heavily used surfaces. And because of its exceptional strength, granite is also well suited for exterior applications.
Granite is a natural stone; therefore, patterns and colors vary from slab to slab, and even within a single slab. These natural variations ensure a uniqueness not found in all natural stones.
One of the traditional downfalls of a natural granite countertop was its susceptibility to staining due to its porosity. But now, granite products are available with stain protection properties making them even more desirable in today’s homes. The choices are many, but equipped with the right knowledge, you can make a selection you will be pleased with for years to come.
