Granite Countertops Toronto

Toronto homeowners have many choices in the material for countertops, but one of the most popular is granite. Granite is a hard natural stone that’s not only up to the job of serving as counter, but can remain attractive for an extended period of time. Along with its distinctive, attractive appearance, granite is also an easily maintained stone as it’s not porous. Resistant to stains and heat, repairs of a granite countertop are seldom necessary. While this can be one of the more expensive options, the ability of granite to last for generations in some cases makes this is a perfect selection for those who don’t want to remodel the countertop frequently.

Installing a Granite Countertops Toronto

Installing any countertop can be a big job, which is the reason most homeowners have expert help during this type of remodeling job. It is usually necessary to the remove old sink and plumbing from the countertop and cabinet. It is also necessary to remove the back splash. It’s possible to replace the back splash with an either the same stone as the countertop or to use another material. The measurements for the granite must be exact in order to fit properly, but a benefit of using this stone over other materials is that it is seamless.

Caring for the Granite Countertops Toronto

When granite is used for the countertop usually an impregnating sealer is used. It is important to find out whether the stone is resealed or not since untreated unsealed granite will require different forms of cleaning and upkeep. As with most surfaces, it’s best to clean up spills as soon as they happen. Cooking oils are the most difficult stains to remove from any type of natural stone. Use a soft cloth or sponge to keep the stone free from scratches or grittiness. Soap isn’t recommended, but stone cleansers are available for tougher clean ups. Usually hot water is the only item needed to keep the stone from looking dull. While most types of granite can take some heat, it is still a good idea to use trivets and hot pads under pots and pans to keep a long lasting shine.

Colours and Designs

Fitting a granite table or countertop in a kitchen is not difficult as most colour schemes can be matched with a shade of this stone. From deep blues to onyx black this stone can also be finished or matte. Finished granite will appear very smooth and glossy or at times even reflective like glass. Matte or honed granite is less sleek, and isn’t as slippery. The matted finish will hide flaws in the stone better, and has a satiny appearance. If a matted finish isn’t resealed this type can be more of a challenge when cleaning up. Suede or leather finishes is another choice. The leather finish feels softer to the touch and will not show fingerprints or dried water stains as much. This finish as with the matted finish does require more maintenance. Beige, brown, red, green, white, and yellow variations of colours are found with granite. Depending on the finish the colours will either appear warm or cool.

Why Choose Granite Countertop?

Granite is one of the most commonly used countertop materials in the world. The material offers a wealth of advantages which makes it a popular option especially in busy areas like the kitchen. We’ll go over some common pros of granite countertops to help you make an informed decision.

Note that, granite is a heavy material, so it may require additional structural support during installation. Furthermore, granite requires sealing at least once a year. If you prefer a uniform look in your home or commercial space, granite countertops may not be able to give you this because each slab is different. Lastly, granite countertops have a specific colour which never fades so if you’re tired and want something different, you’ll be forced to rip out the entire counter.
