Rino’s Tile & Stone: 3 Facts About Granite Countertops, Anchorage, Alaska

Granite countertops are a popular and versatile choice to include in kitchen makeovers, but how much do you really know about what’s involved with this type of countertop? Rino’s Tile & Stone in Anchorage, AK, urges homeowners to understand the facts about granite countertops before committing to them. Not only do they offer beautiful and elegant aesthetics, but they also add value to your project, are durable for frequent use, and come in a variety of styles and colors.

Here are a few facts about granite countertops you should know if you’re considering installing them during your remodel:

  • They Do Require Some Maintenance: Despite their popularity in recent years, there are several misconceptions about how to care for granite countertops. Although they’re very dense and durable counters, they’re still susceptible to stains, scratches, and breaks. Having them sealed at regular intervals can help protect their appearance.
  • granite countertopsEvery Slab Looks Different: Granite is unique because no two slabs are the same, even those cut from the same block. This means you shouldn’t ever select your granite countertops from photos. The craftsmen at Rino’s Tile & Stone are experts at the fabrication and installation of granite and will work hard to make sure your countertops appear consistent.
  • Consider New Backsplashes: Backsplashes are needed to keep water from running down the wall at the back of your counter. It can be difficult to match granite countertops to existing backsplashes, so if you’re considering new granite counters you might want to replace your bathroom or kitchen’s backsplash, too. Rino’s Tile & Stone can include a new backsplash of your choosing with the installation of your countertops.

There are plenty of reasons to choose granite countertops for your home remodeling project. Most of all, they’ll add elegance and beauty to your kitchen or bathroom counters.
