Granite is an organic, beautiful, and elegant choice that most modern homes and kitchens implement to bring a fresh, classy, updated, and clean look. Granite is a coarse-grained mineral, hence the word “grain” embedded in granite that formed in magma as igneous rock.
Don’t think that because granite is a mineral, it only comes in grey or black. Granite also comes in red and yellow as well, depending on where the granite was formed and the amount of pressure and heat introduced to the rock during formation.
Because granite like most rocks, is porous, granite needs to be sealed properly in order to maintain the smooth, glossy surface that Urban Countertops provides post-installation. Without proper sealing and maintenance, damaging oils and water can seep into the porous surface and damage your perfect counters.
