Benefits of Granite Countertops

| | Granite

When you are remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, you might have a hard time deciding what kind of stone to use for your countertops or vanity. There are several different options on the market these days, and one of the most popular is granite. We install granite countertops in Maple Grove, so we know a few reasons these are a good fit for just about any home.


No matter how long you plan to live in your home, granite countertops will not depreciate in value. Granite countertops can increase your home’s value by as much as 25 percent. They can be an investment in the future of your home.


Granite countertops are easy to care for. They do need to be resealed every so often, but besides that, regular maintenance is a fairly easy task. Just make sure to wipe up spills after they happen. Use a pot holder underneath a hot dish or pan if it is going to sit on the counter for a while. Use a mild, non-abrasive cleaner and a soft cloth to keep them clean. And there is no need to bleach them because granite countertops are naturally bacteria resistant.


One of the best things about granite is that no two pieces are exactly alike. Sure, some might look similar, but it is impossible to find two that match exactly. This means you are always guaranteed a unique look and will never have to worry that your granite countertops match your friend’s or neighbor’s countertops.


When properly cared for and maintained, granite countertops last decades. Granite is the second hardest stone known to man (besides diamonds). So making the investment in them now will pay off in the long run!
