Whether you're a business owner looking to buy countertops for your business or an interior designer, here's why granite is so popular. 

There are no two pieces alike

Just like snowflakes, there are no two pieces of granite equally. Granite stone forms from magma below the Earth's surface. These pieces of natural stone come from all over the world. Our granite selection comes from Italy, Brazil and India. 

As unique as their formation is so is their color and designs. Granite comes a wide range of colors! There is white, blue, black, red, green and even pink granite. Depending on the combination of minerals that are present in the formation of granite will determine the color. 

It's formed to last

Granite is one of the most durable countertops stones on the market! This natural stone is an igneous rock that means that was created from molten rock that was crystallized and solidified, making it durable. Since it takes thousands and thousands of years for granite to form, it can be extremely dense. 

This natural stone is resistant to about everything in the kitchen. It can withstand high temperatures, so homeowners never worry about placing hot pots on it. Scratches do not show up on granite. Water or any moisture isn't a problem because it's not porous. Stains and bacterial growth are a thing of the past. 

Maintenance is a breeze

Homeowners don't want to spend their precious hours maintaining their kitchen countertops. They already have way too much on their plates like cooking, doing laundry and mowing lawns. Maintaining countertops are the last thing on their mind. 

Granite countertops provide that simple solution. This natural stone is easy to maintain all you need to have it resealed by a professional every one or five years. Resealing granite can keep it looking shiny and clean but ensure water or scratches can form over time. It takes less than five minutes to contact a professional, and it will keep your granite great for a lifetime.
