Being a natural stone, granite is very durable. It has a hardness similar to diamond and quartz. An excellent selection for kitchen countertops because it is resistant against stains and scratches, it can be used to cut food or dice food since knife marks will not scar the surface. Granite is also heat resistant. Hot dishes from a hot oven or pots taken directly from a hot stove can be placed on the granite countertop with no burn spots. Toaster ovens, electric fry pans, coffee pots, and other kitchen appliances can be plugged in and used with no fear of damage to the surface. Granite is also sanitary. The natural stone is heavily sealed and polished, and the hardened glaze prevents the absorption of germs or bacteria. The countertops are easy to clean with soap and water after daily use. Special granite cleaners are also available. Applying a coat of sealer once a year will keep the granite in good shape. Sealing is very easy maintenance and will keep the countertops looking like new.
The installation process of granite countertops requires installers with high level skills and precision capabilities. Center International Tile and Granite in Romulus can provide the granite countertop of your dreams.
