granite kitchen countersInstalling granite kitchen countertops is one of the best investments you can make for your home. However, the process of selecting and installing them can be misleading and confusing. So here are a few ‘showroom to installation’ tips to help you maximize your investment.

  • Visit the Showroom: Begin the process by visiting a fabricator’s showroom where you’ll be able to see sample slabs of granite and learn about granite countertop prices. Of course, costs will differ depending on the stone you choose.
  • Choose a Sink: For granite kitchen countertops, a stainless steel undermount sink is the most common choice for aesthetics and practicality. Some home improvement experts recommend a 16-gauge unit because it’s thicker and more resistant to dents. Before choosing one, think about your kitchen habits because undermount sinks come in many sizes and shapes.

  • Decide on a Backsplash: Do you want a backsplash to match your granite kitchen countertops? Today, most kitchens have backsplashes that start at the countertops and continue to the upper cabinets.
  • Faucet Layout: The fabricator of your countertops will need to know the number of holes to be drilled in the granite, and therefore may wish to see a specification sheet for the faucets you have chosen.
  • Installation Day: Your fabricator will bring the slabs for the granite kitchen countertops to your home and install them. Usually, the job can be done in a few hours, but you will probably have to wait 24 hours before the faucet can be installed and the sink drains connected.

Why are granite countertops popular for kitchens?

Thanks to its durability and resistance to heat and scratches, granite is a popular choice for many kitchen remodels. Homeowners also like that granite comes in a wide range of patterns and colors, so they can choose one that matches their new kitchen best.

How do I clean and maintain granite countertops?
To help your granite countertops last, we apply a 15-year sealer. The only other maintenance you need is to clean them using a mild dish soap and warm water with a soft cloth or sponge.
Can granite countertops chip or crack?
While granite is quite durable, it is possible for it to chip or crack if subjected to extreme force. However, proper care and maintenance can help prevent such issues.
Can I cut directly on granite countertops?
While granite is scratch-resistant, it’s not recommended to cut directly on granite countertops, as it can dull your knives and potentially damage the surface. It’s best to use a cutting board to protect both your knives and the countertop.
Can I use granite outdoors for my patio or outdoor kitchen?
Some granite varieties can be used outdoors but not all. Our team can discuss your options with you to ensure you have the right materials for your project.
