1. Resists Chips and Scratches
One of the best reasons to choose granite countertops for your kitchen is that the material is durable under normal use. Granite is the second hardest material in the world, just behind diamonds. However, you should always use a cutting board for dicing, chopping and slicing foods since sharp knives and cleavers may damage the granite. If granite countertops are installed properly, they will last for decades.
2. Heat Resistant
Another benefit to granite countertops is their heat resistance. Granite is naturally formed by pressure and heat which means that granite countertops resist heat well. You can even put a hot pot or pan on the surface of your granite countertops without scorching it, though we recommend using pot holders.
3. Stain Resistant
In addition to heat resistance, granite countertops are stain resistant with a properly applied sealant. However, we seal all our granite worktops before they leave the factory. Keep in mind that any liquid and food spills should still be removed immediately with water and a mild detergent (such as a natural cleaner or a small amount of soap).
Each slab of granite is unique, so you can be sure that no one will have the same countertops as you do. If you want a one of a kind, natural surface in your kitchen, call Just Granite to get started today!
