When you are remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, one of the most important decisions you will make is what type of countertop you will have. Granite countertops are not just a luxury item, but also an investment in the long-term value of your home. They offer beauty and durability that will last the life of your home, so you may want to give good consideration to adding a granite countertop to you home.
Granite is available in a wide variety of colors, and each one offering a wide range of tonality and shading. From light shades to very dark shades, you can achieve the desired look and mood of the room. Another choice you have is the type of edge you would like your countertop to have. We offer nine different edge contours to help you achieve the overall appearance that you desire.
Durability is hallmark of granite countertops, and naturally so because it is one of the toughest rocks on planet earth. So hard in fact, that it requires a diamond cutting tool to put those beautiful edges on it. The only other thing that could put a scratch in it would be another piece of granite or rock. So, here is a tip: Use a cutting board, because cutting directly on a granite countertop will dull your knives. However, don’t use a granite cutting board because sliding it on your granite countertop could scratch it. Otherwise it is amazingly durable and will last for the life of your house.
