In the last decade granite has become an increasingly more popular choice for surfaces in homes and businesses. This is especially the case when dealing with countertops in bathrooms and kitchens. The popularity of granite has grown so exponentially, not only due to its gorgeous and diverse appearance but also because it is a very dense and solid natural stone. The density of granite makes it a great addition to your home or business because it can take more wear and tear than most other natural stones. Natural stone countertops are no small expense; ensuring you are selecting a material for you countertops that is difficult to scratch, will give you peace of mind knowing you are protecting your investment for years to come.
Polished granite surfaces also have a significant surface tension making it more difficult for moisture to penetrate the stone. This is important because moisture damages to granite countertops have the ability to destroy the appearance and weaken the stone. As mentioned above, granite is most popular in kitchens and bathrooms, the two locations in a home or business that will be exposed to the highest humidity. If you natural stone, granite counters are not protected with a strong seal and polish they will become vulnerable to this moisture which can lead to costly restoration needs or even having to replace the entire surface.
