Granite is a great choice for kitchen countertops. Even though quartz tops the chart as the favorite building material for countertops, granite kitchen countertops are still a very popular option among homeowners for many good reasons. We list below some of the top reasons why homeowners in the Charlotte region choose granite kitchen countertops for their kitchen remodeling project over other types of building materials. The Complete Kitchen and Bath Design Studio is Charlotte’s leader in the fabrication and installation of beautiful kitchen countertops.

Unique Nature-Made Material

Even though granite and quartz countertops are both considered solid surfaces, one of the main differences between the two is that granite slabs are made from natural stones and quartz slabs are man-made.  Each slab of granite is completely unique and millions of years old. Having granite kitchen countertops in your kitchen is literally like having a piece of earth history in your home!  For many homeowners, that matters.

While some level 1 granite slabs are common, level 2 and level 3 granite slabs have quite unique coloring, veining and patterns.  If you want your countertops to stand out, granite kitchen countertops are the way to go and as they will yield a much more organic look than quartz countertops. The Complete Kitchen and Bath Design Studio has hundreds of granite slabs in inventory in the Charlotte NC area that are ready to be cut and installed.

Heat RESISTANCE OF KITCHEN GRANITE COUNTERTOPS

For busy kitchens, having countertops that resist heat is very important as this is the place where you will be cooking and baking goods. The heat resistance of granite kitchen countertops is much higher than that of quartz countertops. Granite surface can resist heat of 500° F and more whereas quartz is limited to 300°F and below because a major component of quartz countertops is resin and resin is not heat resistant. If you spend a lot of time cooking and baking in your kitchen, the heat resistance of your countertops should definitely be a top priority in selecting the right type of countertops for your home.

Durability

Aside from their natural beauty, Granite countertops are also known for their durability. Granite is an extremely hard material and a perfect fit for any kitchen. In fact, granite is so hard that if you are not careful, it could dull your knives if you cut food directly onto it. For busy kitchens, granite is a fantastic building material.  Granite also resists dirt, bacteria and stains if sealed on a regular basis which makes wiping spills super easy when you have a mess in the kitchen. 

In regards to colors, granite in its raw form is millions of years old. Its coloring in deep within the stone and completely natural. If your kitchen has a lot of windows or skylights that let in sunlight, your granite countertops won’t fade like they could if made of quartz.

Granite Countertops Can Be Repaired

Another advantage of granite countertops is that they can be repaired. Accidents happen, especially in a busy kitchen. Whereas it might be difficult to conceal a repair with quartz countertops, it is much easier with granite countertops.  

Finally, whether you are installing granite countertops, quartz countertops or marble countertops in your kitchen, it will add value to your home and make your kitchen more appealing to potential home buyers. Many homeowners still favor granite countertops and you can’t go wrong having them installed in your kitchen.
