Granite is a great choice for your countertop. Granite is an igneous rock that contains tiny flecks of minerals that provide granite countertops its "salt and pepper" appearance. Granite is made up of hard material which makes it resistant to heat, which keeps it from melting or scratching easily. In addition it is a surface resistant to bacteria. This rock is then polished and made into a durable fine looking countertop that adds sophistication and value to your home.
Often considered as an alternative to granite, quartz surfaces are a popular choice for kitchen countertops. More durable and long-lasting than granite, quartz is one of the hardest materials in the world, making it a viable choice for a kitchen countertop. Quartz surfaces are stain and heat resistant, making them easy to maintain. The non-porous quality of quartz also makes it highly resistant to mold and bacteria contamination.
