Granite, the top choice in countertops, is available in a variety of shades such as blacks, whites, greens, corals and beiges, and no two pieces are exactly the same.
– There are many different types of minerals in granite, some of which appear like small, shiny flecks or longer veins of varying colors. Granite itself comes in many different natural colors and can be polished or finished in many different ways.
• Beneficial Features
– The stone is naturally durable and water resistant with antibacterial and varying characteristics. Granite is also scratch and heat resistant. You'll ruin your knife before you damage your granite countertop if you decide to chop on its surface.
• Granite Care– Use a granite sealant for an additional layer of protection. Clean with a clean, damp cloth and use a small amount of soapy water for heavy residue or debris. Avoid ammonia, bleach or any cleaning products with solvents or caustics, as this will remove the sealant.
