Granite is a durable and beautiful choice for countertops or other home projects. As a natural stone, each slab has its own distinctive characteristics, making your kitchen, vanity, or hearth unique to you. Granite can be used in many ways to create a luxurious feel of permanence. Although more expensive than other materials it lasts much longer, its high strength and melting point enabling it to maintain a beautiful, ageless surface for years. Its smooth surface is hygienic making it possible to clean easily with a cloth.
Here at World Wide Granite we always recommend you see any slab you are considering for your kitchen in-person before making your final decision, whether it is from our in-house selection, or from one of our suppliers.
Why Choose Granite?
With the ability to choose from hundreds of granite colors you are assured your countertop will be unique. Granite is one of the most durable of all surfaces used for counters. Hot pans can be placed directly on the counter with no problem – granite can withstand temperatures up to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. Most household knives can be used to cut up food directly on the granite surface (though this may dull the knife!) and with proper care and sealing granite is unlikely to stain.
Granite is the only choice for preparation surfaces for world famous chefs, bakers, pasta and candy makers. The cost of granite is not as nearly prohibitive as you may think. Why settle for less when you have the opportunity to choose the real thing at an affordable price?
Out of all the different types of natural stone, granite is by far the most diverse. Materials vary from consistent patterns to random movement designs in a full spectrum of color options. No two slabs are ever the same. With the different finishes such as polished, leathered, or honed, and the different edging profiles, the combinations are nearly endless, making it easy to ensure your project is unique to you.
