Why Granite is a Top Countertop Choice

When homeowners plan a home improvement project in their kitchen or bathroom, granite countertops are one of the most desired upgrades. Granite is one of the most popular choices when it comes to countertop materials due to its unique beauty, its durability and the fact that it is 100 percent natural. 

At GMS Werks, we are your go-to natural stone countertop company in the Omaha, Neb area. We offer only the highest quality Nebraska granite countertops. In this blog, we discuss what makes natural granite one of the most desired countertop materials all over the country and world!

Durability and longevity

The durability that granite countertops possess is one of its greatest benefits. Natural granite is a very hard material, and in return is very resistant to heat, scratching, staining and chipping. Although no material is 100 percent resistant to scratching or chipping, granite is the best choice when it comes to it. Having a professional apply sealer will also help prolong the life of your granite countertops even longer!

Also, since granite is such a durable material, it is known to last for years! When properly installed, it’s almost safe to say that you may not have to purchase new countertops ever again

Increases home value

When homeowners install granite countertops in their kitchen or bathrooms, they immediately add value to their homes. Although granite may be a bit more expensive than other countertops materials, it has been seen that granite can pay for itself with a return on investment being as high as 100 percent! 

Unique beauty and design 

Granite is a natural material that is so unique, no two slabs will look identical. Granite contains lots of minerals including quartz, feldspar, mica, biotite and hornblende, which each contribute to the beauty of the material. And because of the individuality of granite, homeowners are able to choose between a variety of colors, the most common being gray, black and white. This variety gives homeowners the opportunity to match any design or style within their kitchen and bathroom!

Bacteria and dirt resistant

Sealed granite has a non-porous surface, meaning that substances will not soak into it. This makes granite one of the best materials when it comes to cleaning up. With granite countertops, your kitchen is less likely to be plagued by dirt, bacteria, and other germs that are often found on kitchen countertops. 

Nebraska granite countertops offer homeowners a variety of benefits, setting itself apart from other countertop materials. Keep these tips in mind when you plan your next home improvement project!
