Pros and Cons of Granite Countertops

flowermoundkitchen-aftMany people choose to use granite for their countertops and it is clear to see why- granite countertops are dramatic and stunning. Before you decide on which material to use for your countertops take some time to consider the pros and cons of using granite.


Beauty- One of the obvious pros about granite is appearance; it is remarkably beautiful. It’s smooth surface is luminous and striking.

Cleanliness- Granite is easy to clean, a huge plus for those who cook a lot but hate complicated clean up. Perfect for families and those that despise a labor intensive clean up (that is probably most of us).


Damage- Granite is not bulletproof (just like most other countertop surfaces) and it can crack if hit by a hard object.

Price- Granite is not cheap, and the labor intensive process of installing it is not cheap either. Beauty doesn’t come for free.
