The Benefits of Granite Countertops

Extremely Durable

  • Granite is second in hardness to diamonds. With normal use, nothing in the kitchen will chip, ding, or break granite.

Heat Resistant

  • No need for trivets! Unlike "man made" synthetic countertops, granite can withstand a dish hot from the oven or stove right onto it's surface.

Stain Resistant

  • By its nature, granite is extremely dense and excellent at repelling stains.
  • As an extra precaution, many slabs are resin treated at the processing plant making them even more impervious to staining.

Scratch Resistant

  • The finish on granite is polished with diamonds and, with normal use, will never wear or fade as long as you own your home.

The Colors

  • Granite is available in an amazing array of colorful and unique patterns. No two granite tops are exactly the same.

Granite is an Investment That Pays

The extra expense of using granite for your kitchen countertop is a great investment in your homes value. Whether you plan to sell your home any time in the near future or not, using granite for the kitchen countertop will increase any homes resale value significantly.

Buyers often prefer a newly remodeled kitchen, free of any needs or repairs. If that kitchen has upgraded materials such as granite, they are often willing to pay more, or tip attitude from indifference to positive. Likewise, a home with favorable appeal can reverse buyers positive outlook if the kitchen countertop is finished in plastic laminate or ceramic tile.

Whether a kitchen granite countertop was installed when the house was first built or added in a remodel, a granite countertop will always increase the value of a home.
