Granite countertops are always high on the list of remodelling ideas in Calgary—and for a good reason. Granite kitchen countertops or bathroom vanities are available in a broad range of colours and patterns, are easy to clean and maintain, and are incredibly versatile. Granite tops are consistently rated the best performing of all kitchen countertops. Both granite and quartz countertops are considered more hygienic than all other surfaces, including butcher block, stainless steel, ceramic tile, and other manufactured surfaces.

Granite for Kitchen Countertops
Granite counter tops are among the most popular in kitchens because of their natural strength and hardness. Granite originates from the earth’s core as liquid magma, and under extreme heat and pressure, various minerals such as quartz, feldspar and mica, are forged into a unique natural masterpiece. Not only are granite tops durable, they are also a showstopper in any kitchen.
Why Granite for Countertops
Granite slabs are very hard and nearly impossible to scratch. Kitchen granite won’t be hurt by placing hot pots on it or by cutting on it. This is what makes a granite countertop perfect for kitchen surfaces. However, even the best granite is porous to a certain degree and may stain. This is particularly true for lighter-coloured stone. Staining can be controlled by ensuring your granite countertop is sealed; that being said, some granite countertops are so dense they do not require any sealing at all. We’ll help you navigate your options for the best hygienic surfaces, such as granite and quartz countertops.
Custom Granite Countertops
If the countless colours and patterns aren’t enough, granite slabs can also be customized with different textures. The most popular custom granite finish is a smooth polished surface; however, granite counters can also be brushed, flamed and honed.
ADVANTAGES OF THE GRANITE COUNTERTOPS
Bathroom and kitchen granite is versatile, tough and beautiful, making it an excellent surface for any project. No other natural stone or engineered stone can match the numerous unique characteristics of a granite slab, which can come in over 2,500 different colours and a vast range of unique patterns.
