For many years, when homeowners were considering which countertop material would be best for their kitchen and bathroom spaces, the obvious choice was granite countertops. Even today, granite countertops remain among the most popular countertop option for homebuilders and homeowners alike. In today’s market, there are more high quality countertop options available. Take quartz countertops, for example. When pitted against granite countertops as an option, you cannot really go wrong with either choice as far as durability goes. Both are great countertop options, and both should last a long time with proper care and maintenance.
However, there are some ways in which granite countertops differ from quartz and other countertop materials. Creative Stone specializes in high quality countertop options for our customers. We have learned a lot about the best countertop materials on the market and here is what we can tell you about the gift that is granite countertops.
When it comes to durability, granite is king. Granite stone is so tough that you could basically cut food directly on it and your knives would not scratch the surface at all. Not only that, but in comparison to options like quartz, granite proves to be more heat resistant. While it is possible to harm the sealant on top of a granite counter, the material itself can stand to have a pot or pan placed directly on it. This is not the case with most other countertop materials.
This is not to say that damage cannot be done to a granite countertop. A granite countertop can be chipped with a hard enough force. The beautiful thing about granite countertops though is that repairing them is fairly simple. Granite repair kits can be purchased by the homeowner.
In addition to these reasons, granite countertops are a great choice because of their affordability in comparison to other options, their ease of care, and their nearly endless color choices.
