Our FAQ

Why is granite good for kitchen counters?

Granite is nearly massive ( lacking any internal structures), hard and tough stone, very easy to clean. It is highly resistant to scratching, cracking and staining, and is impervious to heat. Daily kitchen activities cause no problem and it can take a hot pot without the use of a trivet. This makes granite an ideal choice for countertops.

Can granite be damaged?

Like any solid surface, high impact blows can harm granite. Because of its crystalline structure, it can chip if subjected to sharp hard objects. But repair is possible - a chip can be filled with a granite dust and epoxy mixture.

Can granite crack?

Not with ordinary use. Granite is most susceptible to cracks during shipping and installation. Normal use will not overstress this durable material. (Normal use does not include standing on the counter tops!)

Can you scratch granite?

In general, it is very difficult to scratch. Granite is one of the hardest stones in the world and is highly resistant to scratching in ordinary use. A knife blade will not scratch granite. It can be scratched by another piece of granite or with specially sharpened tools designed to work with granite like tungsten and diamond blades.

Can I cut on my granite countertop?

Only if you want to ruin your good knives! Granite is harder than your knife blades and will dull them very quickly if you use the countertop as a cutting surface, so we would advise against this. Always cut and chop on a wooden or plastic cutting board.
