Top 7 Reasons to Select Granite Countertops for Your Kitchen Renovation

Why should you decide on granite when selecting a new countertop from The Countertop Shop in Monclova? The answers just might surprise you.

1. Granite Looks Great Year after Year

No matter how many meals are prepared on its durable surface, granite will retain its like-new appearance for years. It won’t fade in the sun or become discolored when properly maintained. Place a hot pot directly on it without leaving a scar. It is even able to resist scratches left behind by knives and utensils.

2. Granite is Easy to Care For

You don’t need anything special to clean your granite countertop every day. Just use your mild dishwashing soap and a soft cloth to wipe up spills. A simple sealer is sprayed on it twice a year to prevent stains.

3. Granite Counters are Natural and Chemical Free

Granite is simply stone that is cut from the mountain face and polished. It contains no toxins, paints, or even wax. Feel the confidence and pride when you use a safe and eco-friendly material in your home.

4. Restore the Resale Value of Your Home

The number one selling point of any home is the kitchen. Granite remains the most popular countertop choice for potential buyers. By including granite in your kitchen remodel, you can expect to see a significant return on your investment when it comes time to sell.

5. Repairs can be Nearly Invisible

A damaged granite countertop can be repaired in many instances. Most cracks are filled with color-matching stone dust and epoxy. When polished, it is hard to see the flaw. Many chips can be reattached using a similar approach. Basically, you can expect your granite countertop to look nearly new even after years of hard use.

6. Custom Granite Counters Fit Perfectly into Your Home

Every granite countertop is cut at our local factory using a precise template created in your own home. This means that your counter will slide perfectly into place every time. Our installers are also trained to install your undermount sink and faucet. When they turn over the keys, you will have a beautiful kitchen.

7. No Two Slabs are the Same

Every granite countertop is unique as each one is cut from a different slab of stone. Your kitchen will feature a natural warmth that comes from random flecks of color, veining, and subtle textures that can only be found on real stone. None of your neighbors will be able to precisely duplicate your kitchen masterpiece.
