There are many different materials that can be used for countertops. Quartz, marble, silestone, corian, steel, wood, ceramic tile, concrete, soapstone, glass, laminate, bamboo

or style of the home.

Long Lasting: One of the biggest advantages to granite is that it is long lasting. When properly cared for and maintained, granite has a lifespan of almost 100 years. That means that you will never have to install a new countertop in your home during your lifetime if you select granite.

Easy to Care For: Many people are unaware just how easy granite is to clean and care for. Most people think that it requires much more care than it actually does. When installed, granite should be coated with a sealer. This sealer will need to be reapplied every two to three years. Aside from that, routine cleaning is all that is needed. Simply wipe the countertop down with a water dampened cloth after each use. When deeper cleaning is needed, a natural stone cleaning product can be rubbed into the stone and then wiped away.
