The Luxury of Owning Granite Countertops
Buying granite countertops for your kitchen or bathroom is a great idea if you’re looking for quality. You’ll find that the granite slabs we have available are from the leading brands in the industry.
Granite stone is a natural resource that derives from the earth’s crust. Each stone slab is unique in its color, veins, and specks. This means each slab you install will look 100% different. A lot of our customers like the natural design of granite.
And it’s the reason why you’ll find it installed in so many homes throughout Virginia and the world.
Granite Countertops for Functionality
One of the reasons why homeowners lean towards granite countertops is because they’re highly durable. You can install them in your kitchen without worry of it being scratched, burned, or stained.
However, it’s important to note that granite is a porous material, which means you’ll have to have the surface sealed. This is what will make the countertop last even longer. It’s a good idea to have it professionally sealed at the time of installation, as well as every few years.
Check with the contractor to see how often sealing is required based on the product used.
Once sealed, you can use the surface any way you wish, just try to avoid acidic liquids from spilling on the surface. This includes citrus, red wine, and bleach. Make it a rule to use coasters for cups and pitchers.
Granite Countertops for the Bathroom
Your bathroom vanity is another great place for a granite slab. Granite looks amazing in bathroom settings. You can choose between an array of color options to get the design you want. Granite is popularly used in bathroom settings because of its beauty and durability.
You can find a variety of bathroom projects of ours on this site that showcases granite installations in residential bathrooms.
Granite Countertop Maintenance
Your granite countertop is installed – how do you take care of it? Well, as a rule of thumb, you should make sure to wipe it down daily to prevent dust and buildup. And what’s even better is that you don’t have to use any fancy cleaning products.
All you need is warm water and mild detergent inside of a spray bottle. Spritz the surface with the solution and clean it off using a damp cloth. However, if you do decide to use a product, make sure it’s designed specifically for granite countertops.
