There is no doubt about it that granite is a countertop material of choice due to its outstanding durability, scratch- and heat-resistance and natural beauty. Granite is also available in an amazing array of colorful and unique patterns and no two granite tops are exactly the same. Granite never changes colors, so it does not lose its brilliance over time. Granite used for countertops comes from various parts of the world, including the U.S., Brazil, Canada, China, India, Italy, Norway, and Sri Lanka.
Granite countertops are heavy, about 25-30 pounds (11-14 kg) per square foot (.09 square meters), so we must confirm that your cabinets can withstand the weight. No sub deck is needed between cabinets and granite countertops.
When choosing a color for granite countertops, black, white and gray are appropriate for contemporary or high-tech kitchens. For traditional and country kitchens, granite countertops in earth tones will be flattering.
