The durability of granite countertops makes them a very practical choice for people who plan to use their space comfortably day-to-day.

Granite is also stain-resistant, meaning that with proper sealing or waxing it will stand the test of time and maintain its beauty. Granite kitchen counters are a great choice for those who don’t have time for daily upkeep on their counters because they are too busy with work or family commitments. In the meantime between cleanings, you can have peace of mind knowing that granite is naturally resistant to bacteria, especially when it has been properly sealed.

Although we love granite here at South Star Granite, considering its disadvantages as a countertop is an essential step in finding the perfect product for you.
If you’re striving for a seamless look throughout the different surfaces that you’ll use the stone on, granite might not be the right choice for you. Every slab of this natural stone is unique! Although we can find similar colors and types to keep the same feel throughout the home, you’ll want to keep in mind that no two slabs will be identical.
Granite countertops are one of the more expensive options we offer, and the installation process can also be expensive due to the required labor. If you find that you love the look of granite, but don’t have room for it in your home improvement budget, we have plenty of other natural stones for you to choose from! We recommend quartz countertops, which closely resemble granite, but don’t share all of the same benefits.
