Granite, quarried from countries all over the world, is one of the most popular natural stones on the market. Available in a striking array of colors, granite’s durability and longevity make it ideal for kitchen countertops and other heavily used surfaces, including table tops and floors. While some synthetic surfaces melt under hot cookware, granite resists heat. Granite is also one of the most bacteria-resistant kitchen surfaces, and is not affected by citric acid, coffee, tea, alcohol, or wine. Granite is nearly impossible to scratch, and with proper cleaning, will not stain under normal use. Granite is an excellent choice for kitchen countertops, floors and other heavily used surfaces.
