Caring for Granite Countertops
Because granite is heat-resistant and stain-resistant, it is great for uses in kitchens. Granite is a natural stone, so it does need to be sealed often since all natural stones are porous. Heat and light from the sun does not damage granite which makes it an excellent material for outdoor use. Be sure to keep the granite clean with the correct products and seal it once a year. If granite is cared for correctly, it can last a lifetime.
