What You Need to Know Before Choosing Granite Worktops: What You Need to Know Before Choosing Granite Worktops PowerPoint Presentation: Thousands of households around the world choose granite worktops in both the kitchen and bathroom. The reason this material is so popular is it is natural, it's hard wearing and it's made to last. Granite worktops can add value to your property. They are a sought after material which can increase the number of purchasers interested in your home should you ever choose to sell. The material is often used in high end projects and is associated with elegance and sophistication. PowerPoint Presentation: The material is exceptionally durable and made to last a lifetime. So it's important when choosing this material for your kitchen or bathroom, to ensure you are completely happy because it's going to be around for a very long time. Another thing which makes these countertops so appealing is the fact that they are completely unique. Each slab is different from the next, which means your kitchen or bathroom will have its own unique granite worktop for you to show off to friends and family. PowerPoint Presentation: Surprisingly the material is exceptionally easy to clean. You will require a mild soap detergent and warm water, always ensure once you have cleaned the area you dry it thoroughly with a soft absorbent towel, as over time this material can stain. Always be wary when chopping or working on the countertop. This material is not stain or scratch resistant and can eventually crack if not cared for property. Ensure you always use chopping boards and don't place hot pans and cups directly onto the work surface. PowerPoint Presentation: Regular cleaning is essential, but so is sealing. This material should be sealed every six months. Sealing reduces the risk of stains and scratches. It's easy to determine exactly when you need to seal as you can place a damp clean cloth on the surface, leave it a few minutes and when you remove it, should there be a clear mark, it's time to seal. You can purchase quality sealant from a number of stores and it's a quick and painless application. In most cases you can spray the sealant onto the granite worktops and then leave it for a while. Once it's almost dry, add another layer and buff it well with a clean cloth. Some people prefer doing a second layer, ensuring their surface is clean and safe from burns, chips and stains. PowerPoint Presentation: Unfortunately as with most materials, this material does have a few disadvantages. It is not a cheap material and can easily absorb your budget, if not more. You need to weight up the cost over the period you can enjoy this type of surface in your kitchen and bathroom. Remember while granite worktops may be on the expensive side, they will last forever when cared for properly. With many other materials, you may have to replace them in a few years, this will never happen if you choose granite and look after it. This can make this material worth the extra money you may spend. PowerPoint Presentation: If you do choose granite worktops you need to be willing to clean it regularly, ensure you don't spill or leave hot pans on it and you need to be prepared to seal it every six months. Without regular maintenance, the material can crack, which can be devastating when you've invested so much in having such a beautiful material in your home. Always ensure you choose a reputable supplier who can also manage the installation for you. The supplier should have a team of experienced craftsmen, who can install the work surface to the highest standard, ensuring you are completely happy with your choice and can enjoy your new countertops for years to come.
