5 Reasons to Choose Granite for Your Countertops

Granite Countertops have exploded in popularity—and for good reason. Not only are they beautiful, but they also have a number of other advantages over the other leading options. Here are five reasons to choose granite for your countertops:


Granite is extremely tough and durable. If it is properly installed, granite will last your your lifetime. It is resistant to chipping, scratching and cracking. Your granite countertop will look like new for years! It is also resistant to heat, which is a great feature for convenient cooking practices. 

They Last

Over the course of 30 years, the average laminate countertop needs to be replaced three times. A wood countertop has to be replaced twice over the same period of time, as well as requiring refinishings multiple times in between replacements. How many times will you have to replace your granite? Zero. Granite also lasts twice as long as other popular stones materials like quartz or soapstone.


Studies show that granite countertops can significantly increase the value of your home. Not only do they improve the look of the kitchen, often a deciding factor in new home purchases, but they are hold their value for decades. Often, it’s possible to recoup up to 100% of your investment upon the sale of your home.

A properly sealed granite countertop is easily the lowest maintenance material you can choose for your countertop. It will resist staining and bacteria build-up and can be easily cleaned using soap and water.
