Granite F.A.Q.

939smallWhy are some granite colors more expensive than others?

Availability, rarity, extraction, and transportation expenses all factor into determining pricing. Also, if a particular color is in high demand, the price will likely increase.

How do I know when it’s time to reseal my granite?

You can test if your granite countertop needs to be resealed by pouring some water on a small area. If the water beads up, your sealer it still good. However, if the water soaks in, it’s time to reseal. Always use a water-based sealer that is specified for granite or natural stone. This can typically be done every six months to one year.

Can I put a hot pot directly on my granite countertop?

You can, but we don’t recommend it. Although granite is very heat resistant, it is not heat-proof. We recommend always using hot pads and trivets when placing hot pots and pans on your granite countertops.
