Why Choose A Granite Countertop?
When it comes to selecting a countertop material, you have a lot of choices, from concrete to wood, butchers block, Formica and laminate. However, for a classic, sleek look, granite is a popular choice. Of course, our skilled team here at Hartford Granite love working with granite when fitting a new countertop for the kitchen, or a vanity top for a bathroom remodel. Granite is durable and heat resistant, making it a great choice for kitchen surfaces where hot plates and pans are commonplace. There’s a great range of colors to choose from, and each piece is unique, allowing you to really make your mark on your home.
What Thickness Should My Granite Countertop Be?
We will talk you through the products we feel would be suited to your particular project. In most cases, the granite slab used for countertops is 1.25 inches thick. However, granite is a natural product and as such the thickness might not be completely even throughout - which is where a skilled and professional countertop fitter comes in. We can shore up the slab to ensure it is completely flat and even for use, while you get to enjoy the beauty of a new countertop that will likely outlast every other item of furniture in your home. Give Hartford Granite a call if you need help!
What Do I Need To Consider When Choosing A Granite Countertop?
There are a few things we will suggest you think about when we are choosing a countertop together. Firstly. It’s important to consider how the area where the countertop is placed will be used. In the case of a kitchen, a darker granite slab will be less prone to staining - so this is the better choice if you’re placing your countertop somewhere that there are likely to be spills and moisture present. However, if it’s going to be a less frequently used counter, then a bright, light, and densely patterned slab can look stunning. We will also talk through where the seams of the counter need to be, depending on the slab size and placement, to make sure the finished look is perfect.
