Why Choose Granite?

Why Choose Granite Countertops?

Granite is a very hard stone, taking nature millions of years to form it. Because granite is natural, it comes in a generous selection of colours. Choose from stone with totally unique veining or granite slabs that sparkle intensely. Here are a few of the many reasons why people choose granite for their countertops:


  • Durability Granite is second only to a diamond in terms of toughness. If properly installed, granite countertops shouldn’t need replacing. They’re resistant to heat, as well as most chipping, scratching and cracking.
  • Easy to maintain – When properly installed and sealed, granite countertops are extremely easy to maintain. Cleanup is as simple as soap and water or a cleaner that’s been specifically designed for granite.
  • Unsurpassed beauty – Granite has a naturally beautiful textured appearance that remains unsurpassed by just about any other material made by man or nature.
  • Added property value – Not only do granite countertops make your home more attractive, but they also help you return on a long-term investment. Potential buyers for your home will be more likely to want to purchase your home because the savvy shopper knows granite countertops require less maintenance and are less likely to need replacing.

Common Mistakes when Choosing Granite

However, for all the many reasons why granite makes a superior choice for your countertops, there are also a few things you should consider. Here are a few mistakes commonly made by people when choosing granite: 


  • Choosing the wrong colour – Remember, darker colours of granite are less likely to show stains than lighter counterparts. Therefore, if you’re putting in countertops in a kitchen that you expect to see heavy amounts of traffic and possible liquid and food spills, you may wish to go with a darker pattern.
  • Choosing the wrong thickness – Because there are so many thicknesses available when it comes to granite countertops, it’s important to know which one would be the most appropriate for your needs. If you select one with a higher thickness, be prepared to possibly have gaps along its seams when the glue begins to deteriorate down the road.
  • Choosing the wrong style – Be sure to look at your cabinet and vanity styles before selecting the edge for your granite countertop so that you create the right complementary look. If you have small kids present in the home, you may also wish to consider rounding the edges for their safety. And don’t forget to leave enough room to properly “sink” your kitchen or bathroom sink with the countertop using under mounting!
