There are a many reasons for the popularity of granite countertops in San Antonio, when you choose the material for use in your kitchen you can rest assured that they will live up to the materials reputation for quality and durability and much, much more.

Because granite looks so rich there is a natural tendency to think that it costs a fortune. Although it is more expensive than a laminated countertop for example, the cost/value ratio is hard to beat.

   * Durable: It may be “tongue in cheek” but granite is as hard as stone. You would be hard pressed to find a naturally occurring material that is more durable, more resistant to chips, scratches and cracks than granite. When a sealer is applied it even resists stains.

   * Resistant to bacteria: Sealed granite countertops in San Antonio are not porous; the surface is impervious to liquids. As a result your kitchen counters are easy to keep clean and a clean countertop is imperative to resist the effects of bacteria buildup.

   * If it does chip; no problem: Although granite is tough, there is nothing in the world that can be damaged if the circumstances are just right. If you happen to hit the edge of the countertop with a cast iron skillet it just might chip, if that should happen the same people that installed it can fix it. Professionals can mix and color coordinated epoxy, finish it and reseal it and you would never know there was any damage.
