Three Advantages of Granite Countertops

At The Gallery of Stone, we are proud to offer the best in countertops. We offer a wide selection of materials to suit the needs of any home and budget, as well as satisfy any design taste. One of our most popular countertop materials is granite, and it’s easy to see why. Though they are often something of an investment, granite countertops offer a number of advantages that make them well worth the cost.

1. Durability- Granite is extremely tough and durable and will hold up under serious wear and tear. You’ll never have to worry about scratching a granite countertop, and your counter will still look as great 10 years from now as it does the day it’s installed.

2. Heat Resistance- Granite is also highly heat-resistant, making it an ideal choice for kitchens, especially around the oven or cooktop. With granite countertops, you can set down a hot dish anywhere without worrying about causing damage. Many who switch to granite countertops find that this small change makes a big difference in their cooking routine, adding a level of convenience they did not expect.

3. Stain Resistance- Properly sealed granite countertops will not absorb any liquid, making them impervious to stains. Any spills can be easily wiped away, and you won’t have to worry about drips of your spaghetti sauce ruining the look of your counters. Our team at The Gallery of Stone will make sure that your granite countertops are completely sealed, and you can even enlist us to refresh the seal every year to keep your counters at their best.
