Granite Countertops provide lavish aesthetics in the kitchen and bathroom and have other good qualities. There are few things to keep in mind as you choose granite countertops for your home. There is a look at both sides of the issue.

Reasons to Consider Granite Countertops

Granite has a rich beauty that can match some other countertop materials. Granite Countertops take high quality kitchens to the next level visually and often become the centerpiece of the room. With over 20 shades of granite to work with, you will find all that perfectly blends with your kitchen cabinet, flooring and walls.

Granite is a very hard material and is not susceptible to scratches. While this is not ideal for working as it will dull the knife blade, it will cause normal wear and tear very well. Granite also resists heat, so its use near a range or cook top is ideal. When you have to quickly install a hot pan, granite can take heat without being damaged or weakened. In the bathroom, placing a hair device on it that is still hot is not a problem.

Granite can be very resistant to stains and cannot absorb liquids when it is properly sealed. A good professional installer will be able to seal it correctly so that it maintains its attractive good appearance indefinitely, or you can do it yourself.

Reasons to be careful about granite countertops

For all their beauty and durability, granite counters have some weaknesses. Most problems can occur when Granite Countertops are not sealed correctly or the counter wears a sealant without sealing. Granite is porous. This means that unsealed or poorly sealed counters can absorb alcohol, juice, or oil, creating a stain that may be impossible to remove. A poorly sealed countertop can also irritate bacteria in its pores.

Some treated granite can go 10 years without sealing, but many Granite Countertops will have to be remodeled on an annual basis. When this is ignored, granite countertops do not take long to begin to show signs of staining.

While these counters are very durable, a heavy object dropped on a corner can rip or chip granite. This is not common, but it can happen under the right circumstances. The final precaution is that granite countertops prices are very high.
