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


Granite countertops are easy to maintain. Resealing is required over time—other than that—clean up any spills or messes as soon as they happen, as you would any other type of surface. Be sure to implement pot holders beneath hot items such as dishes or pans—if your intent is it to have them rest on your granite kitchen countertop for some time. Use mild, non-abrasive cleaners and soft cloths to keep them clean.


Properly cared for and maintained, your granite countertops will last you many decades. The second hardest stone on Earth, granite is an investment that will stand the tests of time. They can take a beating and come out none the worse for wear!


Not a single slab of granite looks like any other. It is impossible to find two that match exactly. A guaranteed unique look will keep your counters distinct from any owned by colleagues, family and friends. It is as though you have your very own piece of prehistory fabricated and installed to fit your 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%. They can be an investment in the future of your home.
