Granite Kitchen Countertops in North York

 
Granite kitchen countertops are the number one choice for North York residents, as they are in many parts of North America. There are several reasons for this, which include:
  • Beauty. Natural stone has an innate beauty that no synthetic or engineered material can match. Granite is flecked with minerals that catch and reflect light, giving it warmth and depth. It can be polished to a high shine or given a matte finish, and it's available in thousands of different colours and patterns. Each piece of granite is a work of art by Mother Nature, and it's unique. Your granite kitchen countertop is one-of-a-kind!
  • Durability. Granite is heat resistant, scratch resistant, stain resistant, and very tough. It's one of the hardest substances on the Mohs scale, and rarely cracks or chips. All of these qualities make it perfect for a kitchen surface, where hot saucepans and sharp knives are often in play. With proper care, a granite countertop will outlast the life of the house.
  • History and Associations. Natural stone has been used in buildings for centuries, dating back to ancient civilizations in Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome. Grand cathedrals, and spectacular buildings such as the Taj Mahal and the Palace at Versailles use natural stone to great effect. Using stone in your home creates a feeling of luxury and timelessness.
  • Affordability. Until the 1980s, granite was available only to the wealthy homeowner. But new technologies developed in this area made the extracting of stone from quarries and the processing of stone a less time-intensive undertaking, which in turn helped to make granite more affordable.
  • Added Value. Although a granite kitchen countertop requires a larger initial investment than many other types of countertop surfacing, it will add resale value to your home. Studies have shown that stone countertops are a great selling point to prospective buyers.
  • Eco-Friendliness. Depending on where and how it was quarried and how far it was transported, granite can be an eco-friendly product.
  • Health. Since granite is a natural product, you know that it won't off-gas chemicals or break down when heated, etc. There have been some articles written about granite containing radon gas, but measurements of this are so infinitesimally small that experts have dismissed these concerns. Stone countertops are smooth and easy to clean, making them a sanitary option, and a great choice for people with allergies.
  • Ease of Care. Granite needs resealing approximately once a year, but this is a simple process. When water splashed on the counter stops beading, it's time to reseal. Simply clean your counters and dry thoroughly, apply the sealant evenly with a spray bottle or cloth, and let it soak into the stone for 25 minutes. Rub it in with a cloth dampened with sealant, and leave for two hours, then reapply. Other than that, granite requires only a damp cloth to clean. Stains can usually be removed with a paste made of baking soda and water.
With all these advantages, it's no wonder that North York homeowners rate granite kitchen countertops as #1! Visit a showroom today and discover this natural stone's unique beauty.
