Granite Contractor Serving Baltimore & the Surrounding Areas
Granite has been among the most popular countertop materials for years.
If you're looking to add a sense of unique, timeless beauty to your
home, you can't go wrong with granite. Granite is formed after millennia
of heat and pressure, which gives this natural stone its unique crystalline
texture. Unlimited Stone carries numerous different kinds of granite,
which we're proud to share with our Baltimore-area neighbors. If you're
having difficulty deciding which kind of granite countertop you want in
your kitchen or bathroom, we'll be glad to help.
Benefits of Granite Countertops
There's a good reason why granite countertops are so popular—actually,
there are several reasons why they're popular. Here are just a few
things you might consider as you select your countertops.
Unique Aesthetic: Since no two slabs of granite are formed in precisely the same way, no
two slabs are exactly identical. If you install a granite countertop in
your home, your home will have something completely unique.
High Heat Resistance: Granite can handle the heat of items fresh from the stove or oven. Not
even the hottest casserole dishes will leave a burn or mark on your granite counter.
Simple Maintenance: Warm water and a mild detergent are all you need to clean your granite
countertop. You might consider sealing your counter once or twice a year
to prevent stains and damage.
Factors to Consider When Choosing a Countertop
You can't go wrong with a granite countertop. Once you decide that
granite is the right material for your kitchen, however, you'll need
to choose which kind of granite to install. Here are some factors to consider
as you make your choice.
Color and Texture: Since every slab of concrete is different, you'll have plenty of options
to choose from. You can narrow down your options by sticking with the
colors and textures that leap out at you.
Kitchen Style: It's important to select a granite countertop that blends well with
the rest of your kitchen's aesthetic. Look for colors and textures
that complement the colors and textures found in your kitchen and elsewhere
in your home.
Fabrication Quality: You must also ensure that you get an experienced team of professionals
to fabricate and install your counter.
