About Granite Countertops

Granite is what is known as an intrusive igneous rock that has visible mineral deposits. So what is an intrusive igneous rock exactly? Geologically, intrusive igneous rocks are loosely defined as molten rock that cooled within the earth’s crust without ever being expelled. By remaining in the crust, this molten rock cools more slowly, allowing various minerals to form and orientate within the final stone.

 

It’s important to note that while incredibly hard, natural granite is inherently porous. Granite is highly susceptible to issues like staining. That’s why it is strongly recommended that you include the application of a high-quality sealant with your granite countertops installation. This application will render your surfaces non-porous and stain-resistant. Typically, sealants should be re-applied each year to maintain and protect the natural beauty and impressive performance year after year.

Benefits of Granite Countertops

When you choose granite countertops for your new project, the list of benefits is simply astounding. This natural stone offers a bevy of benefits including design flexibility, superior durability, and so much more! Here are even more great benefits of granite that you can expect to see with your granite countertop installation.

  • Sanitary Surfaces - With the application of a high-quality sealant, you can enjoy a non-porous and highly hypoallergenic surface. You can enjoy peace of mind knowing your surfaces won’t harbor odors, bacteria, viruses, or other harmful microbes.
  • Durable - Compared to alternative materials like marble, granite is incredibly hard. Granite countertops are less likely to be chipped, cracked, or scratched. In fact, your granite countertops are more likely to dull your knives than be scratched by them.
  • Little-to-Low Maintenance - Granite countertops needs very little when it comes to upkeep and maintenance. A high-quality sealant should be applied during countertop installation. You’ll need to have your sealant re-applied periodically. This will ensure your stone offers stunning beauty and superior performance for decades. Best of all, a mild soap and water mixture is all that’s needed for daily cleaning!

One of the biggest factors in the popularity of granite countertops is the added value they bring to your home. Granite countertops last for decades and won’t depreciate over time. And, if you ever decide to place your home on the market, you are more likely to see a higher return on your investment. Not only do these natural stone countertops help your home to sell faster, granite countertops also help to garner higher offers from serious buyers.

Granite Countertop Colors

When it comes to color, nothing can compare to the natural palette of granite. The color of your granite countertops will ultimately depend on the regional and quarry-specific location of formation. Granite is mined from quarries all around the world. Some of the most popular granite producing regions include Italy, Canada, and the United States. India, China, and South America are also well known for producing granite in a stunning array of colors.

 

No matter what your design style or decor, you are sure to find the perfect granite color for your project. You’ll find everything from pale pinks and bold blacks to the whitest of whites and everything in between.

Granite is the perfect choice for natural stone countertops in the kitchen. You won’t have to be concerned with chipping, scratching, etching, or cracking like you would need to be with other materials, like marble. This is because granite is naturally harder than marble, and can stand up to the added wear and tear of a busy, well-used kitchen.

Kitchen granite countertops are naturally heat-resistant. You’ll never again have to worry about an occasional pot or pan damaging your stone. Kitchen granite countertops are also easy to care for! With a properly maintained, high-quality sealant applied, a mild soap and water mix is all it takes for daily cleaning and spills!

Consider the added benefits of hypoallergenic surfaces, heat resistance, and durability. Combined with the low-maintenance needs and decades of performance, it’s easy to see why granite remains one of the most popular countertop materials on the market.
