Benefits of Granite Tiles and Countertops

Have you been thinking about getting granite tiles for your home?  Granite adds value and elegance to any room. See why you should invest in granite tiles for your home this season!

Granite is great for tiles or counter tops due to its resistance to acids and its hardness. Granite is very durable, has many color options, and has low porosity. Ideally, granite is a great choice for kitchen counter tops and flooring for high traffic areas like bathrooms in your home.  It is known to be very resistance to cutting, staining, cracking, and burning so special tools will be needed to cut granite slabs.

With the right care granite counter tops will be a great investment for your kitchen or bathroom whether for its aesthetics, functionality, or durability.  Try to keep your granite as dry as possible by using coasters and by not placing hot items straight on the stone. Use a non-abrasive, neutral cleaner or use warm soap water to clean your granite tiles or counter tops. Stay away from powder type of cleaners and keep acid and abrasive materials away from your granite. To keep this type of stone looking new polish your granite occasionally so it’s kept smooth and reflective.
