Benefits of Granite Countertops
The Marble Institute of America states that granite has long been used as an exterior cladding and pavement material because of its inherent strength, abrasion resistance, and superior weathering durability. These qualities make it likely to remain one of the most popular natural stones available on the market and as a choice in home applications in and around the Charlestown area.
Granite countertops specifically offer benefits that include:
- Resistance to scratching
- Resistance to heat (temperatures up to 480 F)
- Versatility in terms of color choice
- And much more!
Your countertops get a lot of use and make up a critical element of any room design—but granite is strong enough to withstand the heavy traffic and the natural scratches and marks that tend to form with other materials. Whether you love to cook and need a dual surface for cooking and food preparation or you have a family filled with loving but messy children, granite countertops can help you accomplish all your goals.
