Granite is a natural product and has its own unique qualities and is available in a wide variety of colors and patterns. Quarried from mountains as far as Brazil, Italy and India to name a few, this unique stone started its life as molten rock beneath the surface of the earth. As it cooled, it absorbed minerals such as mica, feldspar and quartz which gives granite its unique look. Granite countertops are also very durable and an excellent choice for any kitchen or bath.
Because it is non-porous and nearly diamond-hard, granite has long been the premiere choice for countertops. The benefits of granite countertops are many:
- Available in a wide variety of colors and patterns.
- Resists scratches, heat and stains.
- Mold and mildew resistant.
- Granite countertops will increase the value of your home.
