An excellent choice for kitchen countertops, floors, and other heavily
Granite, quarried from
the mountains of Italy, the U.S., India, and dozens of other countries
around the world, is one of the most popular natural stones on the market.
Available in a
striking array of colors, granite's durability and longevity make it ideal
for kitchen countertops and other heavily used surfaces, including table
tops and floors.
While some synthetic
surfaces scratch easily and melt under hot cookware, granite resists heat.
Granite is also one of the most bacteria-resistant kitchen surfaces, and it
is not affected by citric acid, coffee, tea, alcohol, or wine. It is also
nearly impossible to scratch, and with proper cleaning, will not stain under
normal use (ask Johnson Granite about sealants available to further improve
resistance to staining).
A leading consumer
magazine recently compared granite with engineered stone, ceramic tile,
laminate, butcher block, and other manufactured surfaces. Granite received
the highest overall performance rating as a kitchen countertop material.
Because of its
exceptional strength, granite is well suited for exterior applications such
as cladding, paving, and curbing.
