Granite is one of the most beautiful surfaces there is with it’s nearly endless variety of patterns, speckles, and swirls.
Granite is heat resistant, and its almost diamond-like strength protects it from scratches and stains from hot pots and pans. It also protects against mold and mildew, something wooden countertops cannot do. Granite can be cut to accommodate almost any kind of sink or kitchen appliance, making it a cost effective and versatile stone surface.
Granite is resistant to heat, but that doesn’t mean you can put your hot pot directly on the worktop. A little crack can cost you a heavy replacement, so it is recommended to use trivets to hold your hot pots and pans.
