Discover the Beauty and Durability of Granite Countertops in Raleigh, NC

Granite is known for being an extremely durable natural stone and is a great countertop solution for those seeking a beautiful yet strong material for their countertops, whether they be indoor or outdoor countertops. Our team would be more than happy to provide you with information and answer your questions about why granite might be a good solution for your home.

Granite's formation process helps it achieve a unique composition and makes it one of the hardest/strongest natural materials in the world. That's why some choose to use it for countertops or even use it to create statues, such as in the Veteran's Freedom Monument near the Raleigh Area (located in Cary, NC).

Get a Luxurious Look with Affordable Granite Countertops

If you are looking for a truly unique and luxurious look for your kitchen or bathroom at an affordable price, then you may want to consider looking into granite as a potential solution. It's considered a high-end material, is all natural and eco-friendly, and costs around the same as quartz, depending on your specific material, style, and source location. It can give any kitchen, bathroom, or outdoor space that million dollar look you've always wanted while still adding value to your home at an affordable price.

What are the Pros and Cons of Granite Countertops?

Pros of Granite

  • Firstly, granite is heat resistant and scratch resistant, making it a perfect solution for busy households and busy kitchens. 
  • Granite is an extremely durable natural stone that can last a lifetime if taken care of properly. 
  • Every slab of granite is truly unique due to it being a naturally occurring stone. 
  • They add value to your home and have a great resale value.
  • For the most part, granite countertops are easy to clean and maintain over time. 

Cons of Granite

  • Some granite countertops may be pricier than other countertop solutions, but this completely depends on the style and location of the granite you choose. However, there are a lot of options to choose from that can fit any budget or style. 
  • Granite is a very heavy and dense material. While some may see this as a pro, some people may prefer a lighter solution. Overall, we like that our granite is strong and heavy, because it gives us comfort in knowing that our countertops will last. 
  • Some types of granite can be hard to source and get because they are natural stone. This means that it may be a little more difficult to get an exact pattern match. However, many are attracted to granite exactly because it's hard to get and reproduce. 
  • Granite is a porous material. However, it is easily sealed to help prevent the build-up of bacteria over time. With proper maintenance, granite can last a lifetime. 

Granite vs. Quartz Countertops

Should I Choose Granite Countertops?

  • Granite is a natural stone and comes from the earth and is an eco-friendly countertop option for your home.
  • It is very strong and will last for a lifetime if taken care of properly.
  • It's a beautiful and luxurious natural stone that can bring any kitchen or bathroom to life, but it's not quite as easy to customize as quartz. 
  • Granite is limited in the amount of styles, colors, and designs you can choose from. Since it is a naturally occurring material, it will last for decades, but it also means that it can be harder to source. 

Should I Choose Quartz Countertops?

  • Quartz is a hard and durable material that is resistant to both heat and scratches. 
  • It is made from a combination of natural materials and resins and is considered a man-made product. 
  • Quartz is a non-porous material and doesn't need to be sealed like some types of granite might. 
  • It can be customized to look like any style and can create a truly beautiful and elegant countertop solution for your home or bathroom. 
  • When a style of granite or marble cannot be found for a particular home or property, some customers choose to go with quartz.

Granite vs. Marble

Benefits of Granite over Marble

Granite countertops are a very tough and beautiful option for bathroom and kitchen countertops. Most granite options are scratch and heat resistant and will last a lifetime if maintained properly. So why would you want granite over marble? Well, this completely depends on the application of the countertop or material and what kind of style you are looking for. If you believe your countertop will need to be scratch resistant and heat resistant, then you may want to consider granite or an alternative kitchen countertop material as an option for your home.

Benefits of Marble over Granite

While both options are certainly beautiful and come in a variety of colors, marble is a softer option than granite, and may not be suitable for all applications (it can scratch and chip easier). However, if you are looking for a luxurious and polished countertop option for your kitchen or bathroom remodeling project, then you will want to consider marble before making any final decision. Since marble is a porous countertop option, it will need to be properly maintained over time, but many people say it is worth the extra care and maintenance. Check out some photos of our marble countertops here.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the downsides to granite?

Firstly, granite is a fantastic option for kitchen countertops and adds an elegant and unique style to the kitchen or bathroom. However, granite countertops do need some care and maintenance over time, unless of course you seal the granite. Since granite is a porous material, it can accumulate oil and bacteria, so it needs to be taken care of and cleaned from time to time.

Why is granite not popular anymore in 2023?

Well actually, granite is still very popular. While it may have decreased in the last few years, it may be making a comeback. While there are many reasons for this, one of them is that quartz countertops are taking the market by storm here in 2023. This is because of their durability and variety of styles. However, granite is still a fantastic option for those seeking a truly unique and natural stone that is not man-made.

Does granite increase home value?

Granite provides a wonderful return on investment for people looking to remodel or renovate their kitchens or bathrooms. It's a beautiful and strong material that will last a lifetime if taken care of properly. So yes, it does add value to your home.

Is granite heat resistant?

Yes, most granite is heat resistant and will hold up to extreme heat better than other options, such as quartz countertops. This is one of the reasons that granite is still a popular option for the kitchen.

Is granite porous or non-porous?

Granite is a porous material and must be cleaned and maintained over time. However, it can also be sealed to help prevent the buildup of oils and bacteria. Sealing your granite can be a great way to ensure your countertop remains in good condition without having to provide as much care and maintenance.
