Granite Countertops for Every Budget
Kitchen & Bathroom Countertops for Sale
There are many reasons that granite countertops are among the hottest high-end options for the kitchen and bathroom. Granite is available in a variety of shades, and no two pieces are exactly the same. Costs for granite depend on many variables, including color, availability, finish and the origin of the stone. Here we’ll explain some of the reasons that granite is so popular among homeowners and designers.
Granite Is Tough & Durable
Granite is rock-hard. It’s second only to diamond in terms of the hardness of natural materials. When properly installed, it will last forever. Because of its hardness, granite is also heat-resistant. If you do manage to chip or crack the granite, it may be fixable, depending on the severity of the damage. While not recommended, if you occasionally set a hot pan or tray directly on the surface, granite won’t be damaged like laminate, wood and other materials.
Maintenance Is Easy
Granite counters must be properly sealed. When sealed according to manufacturer guidelines, a granite countertop will resist staining and bacteria for a longer period of time, giving the homeowner enough time to clean the surface before absorption can occur. This makes cleanup easy using soap and water – and you’ll enjoy a stain-free counter surface that looks like new for decades.
Great Long-Term Investment
While you’re enjoying your granite countertops for the next 30+ years, your neighbor might have had to replace their laminate counters three times while another will have replaced wood countertops twice. In the long run, granite countertops are a very cost-effective solution for many homeowners.
Granite Boosts A Home’s Value
Granite countertops make your home more valuable as well as more attractive. The return on your investment can be as high as 100%. That means they’ll potentially increase your home’s market value by the amount you spend on them.
