Granite countertops are among the most popular options for both kitchens and bathrooms. Here are five reasons why:

  1. Durability
    Granite is solid stone and, when properly installed, will be the last countertop you’ll ever need. Granite is resistant to chipping, cracking, and scratching as well as heat. If damage does occur, it can usually be repaired as long as it isn’t too serious.

  2. Value
    Granite countertops raise a home’s value as well as improving its aesthetics. The return can potentially be as high as 100% and may make the difference between selling or not selling your home to a specific buyer.

  3. Maintenance
    Once a granite countertop is properly sealed after installation, it will be resistant to staining and bacteria. Just clean it periodically with a cleaner designed for use on granite, get to spills quickly, and you’ll have beautiful, low-maintenance countertops for a lifetime.

  4. Long-lasting
    Granite is a solid and sturdy material which is capable of lasting for 30+ years if properly taken care of. This makes granite a very cost-effective choice for homeowners, in spite of the initial cost of materials and install.

  5. Aesthetics
    In addition to every other benefit they offer, granite countertops add a warm, natural charm to any interior design. No other material can really match the gentle hues and visually arresting textures of granite.
