5 Reasons to Choose Granite for Your Countertops

Granite countertops are among the most popular high-end options for both kitchen and bathroom.  Its popularity has remained steady but also has seen an increase in growth.  Taking the first step in remodeling or designing your home can be difficult, here are 5 benefits of installing granite countertops.


1. Strength and Durability

Granite is extremely sturdy and only falls second behind diamonds in strength. Choosing granite is a smart long term investment because if installed correctly, could be the last countertop you may ever need to buy. Kitchen conditions can be severe, but the best thing about granite is that it is heat resistant. If a chip or a crack occurs, don't fret because granite is easy to repair.


2. Easy Maintenance

Here at House of Granite we meticulously craft and seal our countertops to ensure complete customer satisfaction. The good news it that maintenance is very simple. Cleanup only requires soap and water or any cleaner designed for granite. You will enjoy a clean counter that appears new for decades!


3. Boosts Home Value

Switching to granite will increase the aesthetic appeal of your home but will also increase the value. Many customers have seen a return on their investment as high as 100%! That means that the value of your home could potentially increase by the amount of money you spent on granite.

For instance, if prospective buyers are looking at two homes, and your home has granite countertops, it could make the biggest difference in which one they select.


4. Excellent Long Term Investment

Many people choose laminate as a quick fix because they feel that it is a lower price and that they could keep it in good shape. Unfortunately, many later realize that they end replacing them more often than they expected.

Although granite is pricey, it is tremendous overall investment and can even outlive the life of quartz or soapstone



5. Beauty

Lastly, granite countertops are just beautiful! They provide a classy finish and an elegant look to your home. Any other material can not match the aesthetic appeal of stone, the smooth finish, and beautiful texture.



When installed correctly, granite countertops are a beautiful addition to a home. The experts here at House of Granite have years of experience are always ready to jumpstart your kitchen and bathroom remodeling endeavors.
