(Be sure to view our granite color list)Granite is one of the hardest stones on Earth, although countertops do require sealing to protect them from staining. Granite is resistant to scratches, chips and cracks.
It is important to always use a cutting board and place trivets under hot pans directly from the stove. The hot pan will not damage the counter due to heat, but grit trapped on the bottom could cause scratches.
No two slabs of granite are the same, so it is important to remember that if you have large counter space, you may have differences in veining between one counter and another. It is also possible to use granite flooring if you want a truly unique look in your kitchen or bath.
