Posted by & filed under Granite Countertops.

If you’re going to redo the countertops in your home, you’re probably looking at a couple of options. At Minneapolis Granite, there are plenty of natural stones to choose from. Why choose one over the other? In most cases, it comes down to a matter of personal preference. Each natural stone boasts options and has different qualities than the rest. But, all of them are viable countertop options. In this blog, we’re going to explore the benefits of choosing granite countertops for your home. We have a team of Minneapolis granite countertop experts to provide you with all the information you need.

Granite’s Durability

As we covered before, granite is an igneous rock formed under the earth’s surface. It is the result of magma being forced between rocks and cooling. This is a time consuming process, but the end result is very dense and durable countertop material. Granite is very resistant to chips and scratches from every day wear and tear. They need to be sealed and resealed periodically to enhance their durability. Once sealed, granite countertops are also more resistant to bacteria, making them a good countertop option for kitchens and bathrooms.

The Beauty of Granite

Granite has a natural, unparalleled beauty. It is formed under the earth’s surface; you can’t get any more natural than that! These stones are extracted, made available, cut to size and polished to be used for their intended projects.

There are an endless number of color options when it comes to granite. No two slabs are the same due to their makeup. When granite cools, it forms different crystals. These crystals are a variety of colors, which once compacted together give granite its signature look. The earth is made up of 70% granite, so there’s sure to be a slab you’ll love.
