Natural Stone Countertops in Union, New Jersey
Granite counters have been popular for many years due to their durability and stunning look. Granite is also non-porous so it does not harbor bacteria the way other types of countertop may. Because granite is an extremely hard rock, the countertops resist scratching and breaking. However, it is important to wipe up any spills of acidic material, like wine, coffee or fruit juices in order to avoid staining. Grit trapped on the bottom of your pans can also cause small scratches, so always use hot pads and trivets, although heat will not damage the surface. No two slabs of granite are the same, so if you have a large counter area, you may see variations in the veining throughout your kitchen. Another option to create a unique look in your kitchen or bath is to add granite flooring or wall coverings.
