Granite can take the heat.
Natural stone surfaces are extremely durable and maintenance free. They are inherently resistant to heat, staining, and scratching – making granite countertops perfect for your busy kitchen environment. From cutting knives or hot pots and pans right off the stove, to spills and cooking messes – durable and reliable granite can take it.
The inherent benefits of granite.
Granite is natural and beautiful
The beauty of polished granite stone is unsurpassed. With almost limitless color and stone choices, you will find a color and pattern to fit your design perfectly. Granite can easily be matched to any kitchen design, color scheme or personal tastes.
Granite Countertops are tough
More than just beautiful, granite is also highly durable – one of the strongest materials you can install in your kitchen or bathroom. Granite is inherently resistant to:
Stains – The natural stone is immune from staining and discoloration.
Heat – Hot pots and pans can be placed on the counter directly from the stove or oven.
Scratches – Food can be prepared right on the granite surface – no cutting boards, damage or stains.
Germs – Unlike wood and plastic cutting boards, granite counters won’t harbor bacteria – providing a consistently safe surface for food preparation.
Granite: The perfect compliment to any kitchen.
No two people are alike. And no two slabs of granite are alike. Grain and vein patterns are unique to each slab. With so many choices, granite can easily accommodate any design style or home décor with a variety of natural stone countertops.
Granite adds value to your home.
Although prices have never been better, granite is priced above other kitchen countertop materials like Formica or laminate countertops. Fortunately, a granite countertop installed in an updated kitchen will more than pay for itself. The cost of a granite countertop will always be offset by the increase resale value of your home.
Unattractive, outdated countertops can actually decrease your home value. A remodeled kitchen (with an upgrade to granite countertops) is the logical choice for increasing home value.
The radon gas myth.
Reports of radon gas posing a danger to homeowners have been greatly exaggerated. While radon gas occurs naturally in the environment and in certain types of granite, keep in mind:
Inconsequential – The harmless amount released by a granite countertop in a very large kitchen is so miniscule, it would have to be measured in atoms.
Unsubstantiated – These reports are said to be politically motivated and unreliable.
Completely safe – Rest assured…your granite countertop will pose no health threat to you or anyone in your home.
