Created from nature and formed by man, granite has quickly become a popular choice for
kitchen and bathroom countertops with a timeless appeal. Granite is an elegant and beautiful
material that has a wide range of colors, patterns and finishes to choose from.
Granite is an
extremely hard material that can withstand heat and scratches. A sealer must be applied to
granite on an annual basis to protect it from staining, as it is porous and can stain without
this protection. Also, the seams in a granite countertop are visible. Most granite is polished
prior to fabrication, giving it a shiny finish. “Honed” granite is also available, providing a
more subtle matte finish.
