3 Benefits of Choosing Granite Countertops for Your Kitchen, Middletown, New Jersey

Natural stone introduces a sense of class into a kitchen, which is one reason granite countertops have always been a popular choice. However, they also provide a variety of pragmatic benefits you won’t find in other materials. Whether you’re a devoted cook or simply want to update the appearance in your kitchen, consider the benefits of granite countertops below.

3 Reasons to Install Granite Countertops

1. Sanitary

granite countertopsKitchen countertops see a lot of action, and, over time, they can become a breeding ground for bacteria. Fortunately, granite is non-porous, which means it won’t absorb any liquids or stains once it’s been sealed. You’ll still need to use an anti-bacterial cleanser on your granite countertops, but with the proper sealing, you can ensure a sanitary surface for cooking, prepping, and serving.

2. Durable

Granite is heat-resistant, which means you can set hot plates, pots, and pans directly on it without damaging the stone. It’s also a relatively hard material, so scratching and dents are less common with granite than other options, like marble and ceramic. Furthermore, granite is easy to repair if damage occurs; a contractor can simply buff and re-polish the stone to perfection.

3. Value

Because granite countertops are a sought-after home amenity, they add immediate value to your property. Homeowners are willing to pay more for quality, especially if it saves them the trouble of installing new countertops or remodeling their kitchen after the property sale. Even if you aren’t considering selling your home, granite countertops are a long-term investment. Granite is a natural stone, which means the slabs you choose for your countertops are likely hundreds of years old already. If you seal your granite countertops, they will probably last for the duration of your house.
