About Granite Countertops
Granite countertops are the ultimate staple for kitchen and bathroom countertops. Granite is loved because of its key features. It is a very hard stone. This makes it resistant to scratches, scuffs, chipping, and damage. Granite is not quite indestructible, but as a stone, it can stand up to normal kitchen and bathroom use without any trouble.
Granite is also a good conductor of heat. One reason so many love it in the kitchen is that it can hold a hot pan or dish without suffering damage. This can help quickly cool a hot dish, which makes it wonderful for getting cookware ready to handle and wash a lot faster.
A third great strength of granite is the aesthetic. It’s a beautiful stone that can be polished to look pristine. It comes in many colors and patterns, so even if it’s a popular stone, unique granite countertops exist just about everywhere. You can find a granite countertop that has the look you want.
Of course, granite isn’t perfect. There are drawbacks to choosing this stone, and it’s always good to know what you are getting into. The most important thing to know about granite is that it is a porous stone. That means it can absorb water easily, and this matters a lot in the kitchen. Porous materials are havens for mold and bacteria, and they also stain very easily.
The porous nature of granite requires it to be carefully sealed, and that seal will degrade over time. The most important aspect of caring for granite countertops is protecting and refreshing the seal. It is vital that you avoid acidic, basic, or chlorine-based cleaners when you clean your granite. All of those can eat at the seal and compromise the granite. Once it gets wet, you’re looking at permanent problems like stains and stone degradation.
Granite is also difficult to repair. It is not easily chipped or damaged, but such things do sometimes happen. Granite repair mostly involves masking the damage or replacing the countertops. The stone cannot truly be repaired.
