Granite kitchen countertops convey beauty, character, and strength. Granite is a natural stone that is found deep in the earth’s crust, it is then extracted, cut, polished, and sealed for distribution. The type of seal used on granite makes it almost completely resistant to scratches, staining, heat, etching and weathering. Since it is a natural stone it comes in many variations of colors, patterns, and textures. Because of this granite is one of the most popular stones on the market.
There are benefits to having granite kitchen countertops, one of the best being that it gives any room a unique look instantly. It is also very durable and scratch, stain, and heat resistant so it lasts a lot longer than other products, it can stand up to the everyday wear that happens in a kitchen. There are also some drawbacks, granite is a porous material so if there is a problem with the seal, or it wears off the counter can absorb stains. Although these countertops are very durable there are circumstances that can lead to cracking or chipping like dropping heavy objects on it, it can also become pricey.
