Granite is one of the most popular stone choices for countertops. Durable, unique and easy to care for, it is an excellent option for families and homes of all shapes and sizes. Through the years, we have heard many misconceptions about granite, so we wanted to lay some of those myths to rest. Here are some of the ones we hear the most as well as the reasons we think granite is a great choice for bathroom vanity countertops in Minnetonka.
Myth 1: Granite is far too expensive for bathroom vanity countertops.
Fact: Granite is affordable for most budgets. A lot of the cost depends on the specific slab that you select. If you want to learn more about the granite we can supply for bathroom vanity countertops, give us a call and we can even give you a free estimate so you know how much to budget for.
Myth 2: Granite is really difficult to care for, and it will need to be resealed every year.
Fact: Granite is incredibly easy to care for, which is why it is such a good choice for bathroom vanity countertops. All you have to do is wipe it down on a daily basis, make sure nothing that is hot (like a curling iron) sits on it for too long and make sure spills are mopped up as soon as possible after they happen. The granite will be sealed as part of our fabrication process and, depending on the type of granite you pick out, you might not ever need to worry about having it sealed again.
Myth 3: Installing new granite bathroom vanity countertops takes too long.
Fact: Installing granite bathroom vanity countertops only takes a few hours. Yes, the fabrication process can take a few weeks, but the actual installation process (when we are in your home and putting the countertops in) will only take a couple of hours at most, depending on the scope of your project.
Myth 4: Granite will not last for long.
Fact: Thanks to the way granite is formed, it is incredibly durable and long-lasting. Your new granite bathroom vanity countertops could last for several decades, if not longer! It will be almost impossible to scratch, chip and crack it too.
