How Granite Countertops Enhance the Look of Your Home

Posted on: December 29th, 2020

Beauty, elegance, toughness—these are the characteristics of granite. When you choose granite countertops for your home, you get strength and durability in a stunning package that your guests are sure to notice. And, if you are looking for a granite counter company in Baton Rouge, STONE has you (and your countertops) covered. 

Granite’s many excellent qualities make it a popular choice for home interiors and exteriors across Baton Rouge. And if you plan to replace or build the countertops in your home with granite, it helps to know more about this stone’s unique properties. Learn more about granite and its features to see if it’s the right choice for your home’s countertops.

Sleek and Durable

Granite countertops are often praised for their toughness, and for good reason. This igneous stone is mainly made up of quartz, mica, and feldspar. And granite is rated between six and seven on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, which means it’s an especially strong material. So you can have a countertop that will stand up to years of use without losing its luster. 

Another benefit is that you don’t have to worry about hot pots and pans marking up your countertops. Our granite counters can take the heat. And, because they can withstand the elements, they’re also a great choice for outdoor kitchens. 

The durability of granite also makes it resistant to cuts and chipping from knives and other cooking tools. Compare that with laminate countertops, which are prone to scratches and burns and often require replacement within 10 years. 

Beauty That Lasts

We start with the highest-quality slabs typically cut from quarries in Italy and Brazil, and those slabs are then cut and polished by fabricators to make them countertop-ready. This provides your kitchen with the dependability of a stone surface that has stood the test of time. 

While granite countertops require little upkeep, they do need to be sealed periodically. This process helps them stay clean, smooth, and free of stains. As your granite counter company in Baton Rouge, STONE’s experts can show you how to seal your countertop properly. And we offer an effective sealant product to our clients as well as a warranty that lasts for up to 25 years. So you can relax and enjoy the exquisite look of your indoor or outdoor granite countertop for many years to come.
