Granite Countertops for PA Homeowners
There is a reason that granite countertops are the material of choice for most homeowners. People have been using the stone as a building material since ancient times, making it one of the oldest materials available. We know this because granite is also one of the most durable building materials, far outlasting the buildings and civilizations that used it. Properly finished granite will never depreciate with time, and as such it will provide lasting value to any kitchen. No synthetic material performs as well as a granite countertop over time. In addition to the individual effects of choices such as stone color, pattern, and cut, all granite gives off an impression of durability, elegance, and taste.
Granite Countertops Are Durable & Elegant
Granite differs from other stone materials like marble and limestone in that it is an igneous rock, hardened over millions of years of volcanic activity. It is twice as hard as marble and less susceptible to damage from acids like vinegar or citrus fruits than marble because of the absence of calcium. Unlike many of the materials used in buildings today, granite is used when you want a hard surface that will last. In addition to being a high quality material, it also has the appearance of one. While modern science has created many synthetic solutions to building problems, none can rival the air of class of a stone that has been used and proven for thousands of years.
Granite countertops looks heavy, and they are. It is the least susceptible material of all natural building products to scratches. As a result, a granite countertop will retain the luster it has upon first use throughout many years, always looking sparkling new. It is incredibly resistant to heat and as such will never burn or scorch through normal kitchen usage. As long as it is finished properly it won't stain and will resist chemicals and abrasive cleaners. Modern sealants are virtually maintenance-free, making granite incredibly easy to keep looking as new as the day it was installed.
Granite Countertop Color Choices
The variety of colors that granite comes in are the colors that appear naturally in the rock, lending an innate, unplanned beauty impossible to replicate in other materials. Feldspar, quartz, and mica are the primary ingredients, but hints of other minerals like muscovite, pyroxene, biotite, and hornblende are what give each rock its unique pattern and colors. No granite will provide a source perfectly uniform in color or pattern. This is part of the charm of the rock - taking a naturally occurring material and smoothing it into elegant shapes for use in the kitchen. Blemishes and imperfections are natural and to be expected as they add to the character of the material.
