Benefits of Granite Countertops?

Granite countertops benefits

Resistance to chipping and scratching

As we mentioned earlier, granite is a hard natural rock. Therefore, it is really hard for the surfaces of granite countertops to scratch or chip easily. Unless you use powered steel-cutting lasers to break the surface, granite countertops will serve you for decades in your home without scratching.

Easy to clean

The best quality of any countertop is its ease of maintenance. Granite countertops have smooth surfaces that make them easy to clean. All you need is soap, a soft cloth, and some water to wipe the dirt out of your kitchen or bathroom countertop. Not only will cleaning a granite countertop leave the surface spotless and shiny, but it will also take you very little energy to do so.

Bacteria resistant

Granite countertops are perfect for bathroom and kitchen surfaces because of their ability to resist bacteria. During its creation, a granite countertop is coated with a sealant that prevents dirt and bacteria from penetrating beneath the surface of the countertop. This means that when you wipe the surface of the countertop with a clean cloth, you do not have to worry about any residual germs.


As mentioned before, granite countertops are coated with a sealant that prevents substances from penetrating beneath the countertop’s surface. The water-resistant nature of granite countertops makes them great for use in areas with surfaces that come into contact with water regularly, such as the kitchen or the bathroom.

Once you install granite countertops into your home, you do not need to worry about keeping the surfaces dry at all times. Also, with granite countertops, mold and mildew will have a difficult time surviving in your household. The moisture will not penetrate the surface and create a fertile breeding ground for mold.

Heat resistant

If you need a durable surface in your kitchen that will not warp anytime you place a hot pan on it, then you need to install granite countertops. The granite countertops can withstand a lot of heat because the surface will not be damaged if you place a pan directly from the cooker or oven on it.
