Granite Countertops

Granite countertops are one of the most popular kitchen upgrades there is, due to the attractive appearance and overall durability. Adding granite countertops to your kitchen or bath adds instant beauty and instant value to your home. Some home buyers won’t even consider buying a home without granite countertops.

Granite countertops are rock solid – no pun intended. Granite is an igneous rock, meaning it was formed when the magma from beneath the earth’s surface cooled, or at the surface when lava cooled. Granite is comprised of many different kinds of crystals that solidified when the magma cooled. Crystals include quartz, mica, feldspar, hornblend and biolite.

The crystals are seen when granite is cut and polished, and depending on the type of crystals and how prevalent they are in a slab, the color can range from pink to tan to grey to black.
