Reasons to Consider Granite and Marble Countertops
Granite has a rich beauty that few other countertop materials can match. It is a natural product with a timeless aura and appeal. Granite countertops take a high-quality kitchen to the next level visually and often become the centerpiece of the room. With more than 20 shades of granite to work with, you’ll find one that blends perfectly with your kitchen cabinets, flooring and walls.
Granite is a very hard substance and is not susceptible to scratches. Granite resists heat too, so its use near a range or cooktop is ideal. When you have to set down a hot pan fast, granite can take the heat without being damaged or weakened.
Granite can be very resistant to stains and won’t absorb liquids when it is properly sealed. Our professional installer will be able to seal it correctly so that it maintains its attractive good looks indefinitely.
Now talking about Marble you can have more design capabilities. If you have a counter that requires more than the usual fabrication efforts, you may want to turn to marble. Not every countertop has a strict rectangular shape. It is softer to work with than many other common stone slabs that are used for a counter. As a result, the overall workability of it is much better. It should also be considered if you’re looking for fancy edges or other extra fabrication perks.
When compared to granite, for example, marble is a dream to work with. With granite, it’s very difficult to cut the stone without chipping it and causing damage.
Classic beauty – This is by far its best feature and the reason why many people will not settle for anything less. If you’re looking for a white countertop, it will be hard if not impossible to find one that is as bright in quartz, soapstone or granite.
Naturally cool – If you do a lot of baking, you’ll absolutely love working with marble countertops! It stays cool naturally and is not a big heat conductor.
Heat resistant – It’s one of the best work services you can find for a kitchen. It is heat resistant but like quartz and granite, you should never place a pot that comes directly from the stove on it.
Durable – Although it is a soft stone, it is quite durable. It’s a porous material though so if you’re looking for something that is dense and can take a lot of bumps and bruises, you may want to consider quartz as an alternative.
Easy to find – Sometimes it can be difficult to track down the right granite or quartz slab that would be perfect for your kitchen. Marble, on the other hand, is widely available and can be found quite easily in most stone yards or fabricators. This means less wait time for you, in most cases, to get the right stone delivered and put in its rightful place on your kitchen counter.
