Granite is much more expensive than laminate and tile countertops. How come?
Granite is the most dense product you can get for your countertops. It also requires much more labor to turn it into countertops. Granite will add more value to your home than any other countertops and last longer. Granite before it's turned into a countertop is thousands of years old. With the proper care and maintenance the granite is likely to outlast any other part of your house.
Is granite durable?
Absolutely! Granite is one of the strongest, most durable materials.
How often should I have my granite sealed?
Typically, granite should be sealed every 6 to 12 months. You'll want to note the fact that some common household cleaners can cause the seal to weaken. One way to help your seal last longer is to use cleaners made specifically for granite, but remember, even with special cleaners it's still a good idea to regularly seal the counter tops.
Where does granite come from?
Granite is an igneous rock. It is formed by volcanic activity.
