DIY Granite Countertops VS. Granite Countertops?

You are now in the market for a kitchen remodel or bathroom update. So where do you begin? There are many things running through your head from wall colors, faucet types, light fixtures, flooring and the list continues. As your mind is racing across all of these different pieces of the renovation your eyes suddenly stop on the countertops. Now dollar signs are beginning to blur your vision. There is the thought of high costs for real Granite countertops, then, an idea pops in your head, "What about Faux Granite countertops?". We are here to help. Below, we will list out why there is truly no substitute for natural Granite.

  • There is no return on your investment, compared to investing in natural Granite Countertops

While there are several installation options for faux Granite ranging from vinyl sheets to painting options, none have the longevity of natural Granite.

The factors to consider...

  • Granite will withstand most anything
  • It is an all natural stone
  • Granite's unique looks and patterns produce timeless styling that are as individual as you are
  • Naturally it is a very clean stone making it safe to use in the home
  • Can be sealed to amplify the natural ability of not harboring bacteria [See Below About Our Sealer]
  • Granite has a higher cost, SO be prepared to get what you pay for!
  • *Ok, ok, we realize that is not necessarily a "con", however it is the worst thing we could think of.*

While we are here, when natural Granite countertops are added, yes, you receive a return on your investment through your home value, if you are looking to sell your home, high-end finishes are desirable. Or if the addition of Granite countertops was only to freshen up your forever home, you have invested in your peace of mind, knowing that your counter surfaces are durable, easy to clean and resist, not trap, bacteria.
