Natural Stone Countertops in Monmouth County, New Jersey
One of the most popular types of countertops, granite is durable and almost maintenance free. Granite is unique in that crystals that make up the rock don’t fully develop but grow into each other, making the stone extremely durable and providing the grainy look that you instantly recognize. No two slabs of granite are the same, so each section of your counter can have a different look.
Be sure to mop up acidic materials as soon as possible as substances like wine, coffee or tomato sauce can stain. Use a sponge or soft cloth to clean them and be sure to use trivets under hot pans, not because the heat can cause damage but because grit on the bottom of the pan can scratch.
