Granite is the hardest and most durable of the natural stones, making it a great choice for kitchen and bathroom countertops. There are an endless number of colors and patterns available. Since granite is a natural product, there will be variation in shading and veining from slab to slab, which adds to its beauty and character. Each piece of granite is truly unique.
Granite is very resistant to scratching as the hardness of the minerals comprising most granites surpasses that of the utensils that are used on them. It also typically has excellent heat resistance. While these attributes make an extremely durable countertop, we still encourage homeowners to use care and common sense.
Maintenance is simple. In addition to normal cleaning, sealing is required periodically (generally every 3-7 years.) This simple process generally takes less than an hour and can easily be done yourself.
