Why Choose Granite?

Granite countertops are one of the most common countertop choices made by our clients. Being one of the hardest known building stones, it is preferred for multiple applications inside a home including;

×          Fireplaces

×          Tiling

×          Custom Showers

×          And of course, countertops!

Why Our Clients May Choose Granite

  • There are over 3000 colors, patterns and designs available to you.
  • Granite countertops can be polished to create a modern, classy look or left as is for a natural look.
  • Very low maintenance – granite can be cleaned with regular soap and most granite tops are resistant to chemicals if you chose to use a detergent.
  • Granite can withstand high temperatures, and is resistant to some bacteria.
  • You do not have to worry about damaging or lifting of your countertop should you happen to spill water or any other liquids on it.

 Every Product has Pros and Cons

  • Each slab of granite is completely unique. There are no two slabs that are the same in terms of grain, color and pattern.  It is better to purchase a surplus amount of the granite you chose at the time of buying, to avoid having to install a different granite later.
  • Granite is expensive when compared to other stone and materials used for countertops.
  • It is necessary to seal your countertop from time to time to prevent the countertop from absorbing liquids and developing stains.
