Confusion about the durability, sustainability, and cost of white granite countertops is understandable given the many different types of materials available. But you’ll find all the answers to your questions here, along with tips on how to select the countertop that’s right for you.
Are white granite countertops stain resistant?
As with any natural material, there is a chance of staining. However, the granite industry has provided ample information on sealing products and other means of preventing stains. You may have heard of sealer. Its purpose is to penetrate to the top layer of your white granite countertops and create a barrier that will help prevent stains if you spill anything on the surface.
What is better, white granite countertops or white quartz countertops?
It’s difficult to say whether granite or marble is better. Both have their pros and cons. Granite is natural stone, so each slab will be unique; there is no way to get a countertop that looks exactly like another one. This being said, it means that your white granite countertops will be unique and one of a kind. Even if your neighbor has the same “Name” as you, their countertops will look different than yours. This is the ultimate beauty of selecting an organic product.
What is the con to having white granite countertops?
Though it is in fact one of the most beautiful types of countertops available today, white granite does have one drawback: each slab’s color is unique. Quartz countertops, on the other hand, tend to be uniform in appearance, so if you’re looking for a more consistent product and don’t have a preference between the two materials, you may want to consider quartz over granite.
Luckily, stone fabrication companies like ours offer an ever-growing selection of granite colors with many different varieties available, including quartz-like tones; therefore, it won’t be hard to find something that suits your tastes.
