GRANITE SAMPLES

Granite slabs

Granite is a naturally occurring stone, quarried in the US and many parts of the world. It is a crystalline rock that is much harder than many other natural stones like marble. Granite rock is made up of many interlocking mineral crystals, such as quartz and feldspar and others. It is these mineral crystals that make every piece of granite one of a kind.

This incredibly robust and hardy material is truly a wonder of nature. Granite is versatile and can be used in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas of a home as well. Today, most homeowners, kitchen designers, and architects prefer granite over many other countertop materials. This natural stone comes in a range of colors and patterns and has a dimensional quality when the surfaces are polished to a luminous sheen.

At Stone Wizards, we know from experience that homeowners want countertops that are resilient, practical, easy to maintain, and long-lasting. Granite is undeniably a classic material, and most homeowners opt for a granite kitchen countertop in Toronto over materials like tile, stainless steel, and marble for their countertops.

Quartz is another countertop material that many people choose. It is almost like a manmade counterpart of granite and is sturdy, easy to clean, and extremely versatile too. We offer excellent quartz countertop installation services as well. But granite continues to be a hot favorite with many when it comes to countertop materials for kitchens and bathrooms.

Benefits of Getting a Granite Countertop in Toronto

1. It’s Hygienic

Polished granite is used in countertop installations, and the surfaces are smooth, seamless, and easy to clean. These qualities make it very easy to maintain high levels of hygiene in your kitchen and bathroom. You don’t have to be concerned about any bacteria and germs breeding in joints or rough surfaces. We seal the surfaces, so your granite countertop in Toronto isn’t porous. Since nothing can soak into the sealed stone, it is less likely to be plagued by grime, bacteria, and dirt, which are commonly present on kitchen countertops.

2. Heat, Stain, and Scratch-Resistant

Just like quartz, granite is one of the most family-friendly kitchen countertop materials. If you have young kids in the house who are more apt to spill and drop things on the kitchen counter, granite is the material for you. It won’t stain or get scratched easily even if your cat happens to jump up on your countertops. Since it is resistant to heat, granite won’t crack if you place a hot vessel directly on the surface. This material can take the abuse, yet continue to stay looking great for many years.

3. Durability

Most kitchens and bathrooms see everyday use, and you need your countertop to be tough and hardy. After all, you don’t want to be constantly worried about chipping or cracking the stone accidentally. Granite is one of the most robust natural rocks on our planet. When you opt for a good quality natural granite kitchen countertop in Toronto, you can rest assured that it will last for decades.

We also apply a sealant on the surface. This application protects the surface from spills and stains, increasing the lifespan of the feature. Granite works as beautifully in bathroom spaces as it does in kitchens. It’s why you will see that most luxury bathrooms have granite countertops and other features.

4. Variety Of Designs And Patterns

Every homeowner will have specific preferences and ideas about how they want their kitchen and bathroom areas to be. Granite is available in a range of colors, designs, and finishes. It means that skilled designers and granite countertop installers like us can create the kind of aesthetic you want in your kitchen or bathroom.

You can choose from marbled, speckled, or basic patterns and can also mix-and-match different styles to achieve the effect you want.

It means there will be minimal variation, if at all, in the countertops we install for you. We make sure that we fabricate your countertop with a clear understanding of your requirements. With us, you are sure to get the high-quality bathroom and kitchen countertops you want.

5. Easy to Repair

As mentioned earlier, granite is an extremely tough and hardy material that won’t suffer damage easily. But in case it does get chipped due to a severe impact, the chipped section can be refilled with a special putty, to match the color of the granite. We will then reseal that area so that the surface is protected from spills and is as good as new.

6. Perfectly Flat Surfaces

A granite countertop in Toronto will be perfectly flat, without any imperfections. It means you can use the surface for kneading or rolling out dough while baking bread or cookies. All cooks, novices as well as professionals, need flat surfaces in their kitchen for food prep, cooking, and baking. These surfaces provide the same advantage when used in bathrooms as well.

7. Cost-Effective

The upfront cost of a kitchen countertop in Toronto can indeed be higher than many other materials. Expect granite countertop prices to be in the range of $45-$200 per sq. ft., including installation. You can cut down on these costs by getting thinner slabs installed. For example, you can opt for slabs that are 3/4th” thick instead of the standard 1 1/4th” thickness. When mounted on a stable and flat base, the former can be as durable as the thicker slabs.

However, the value of the material and the cost-benefit it provides cannot and should not always be calculated based on price. Once you install good quality, cheap granite countertops in Toronto and get them sealed correctly, they can provide decades of service with minimal maintenance. These aspects provide a good return on investment, making your granite countertop a very cost-effective option in the long term.

8. Value-Addition
