Benefits Of Granite Countertops
While we don’t suggest you leave burning hot pots on your granite worktop, you will be pleased to know that the natural stone that is granite can withstand the odd accidental hot pot placement. So if the worst should happen, it’s highly likely your granite worktops resistance to high temperatures will mean no damage is done.
The sun can often bleach surfaces it shines on for a prolonged period of time. We’ve seen it happen with doors, windows and other surfaces. Kitchen worktops that find themselves exposed to sunlight via windows are no exception. Granite worktops however, are the one exception to that rule offering a unique UV resistance keeping it’s colour for years to come.
Granite requires annual sealing however this professional sealing means your worktop will be non-porous making stains almost impossible. This is a great quality for busy family homes where accidental spillages can happen.
Being a completely natural stone, possessing the qualities it does (especially its unique appearance) has made this stone highly sought after and as such, automatically adds value to any home it’s installed in. This makes it not only an incredibly beautiful addition but an investment too.
