Granite Counter FAQs
Homeowners need to understand their options to choose the right counters for their kitchen or bathroom, so let’s get into some of the most common questions about granite counters.
How do I recognize natural granite stone among all the other countertop stone options?
When choosing your new custom countertops, it can be hard to pick out real granite from advanced engineered stone slabs or other natural stone slabs, but granite has some unique properties. This stone is made out of mostly feldspar and quartz with other minerals like mica adding sparkle and color, which can range from pure white or black to vibrant reds, greens, and even sometimes blue. Unlike the veining in marble, granite has a mixed color with spots of different colors throughout and visible crystals.
What are the benefits of granite countertops?
- Granite is a very hard stone, so it can stand up to wear and tear
- As it’s natural and nonreactive to sunlight, it is good for outdoor spaces
- Beautiful sparkle and color combinations, timeless design
- A surprisingly large amount of color choices
What should I be aware of when choosing granite counters?
Granite is a porous material, meaning it has tiny holes and fissures where water and bacteria can collect if the stone isn’t sealed. Though professional countertop installers will often seal stone slabs before installation, they do need to be resealed periodically. It’s also important to bring in professionals if your granite countertops suffer from chips or cracks, as DIY repairs aren’t recommended.
