Quality Granite Countertops

To have the most pristine granite counters you must start with the highest of quality granite slabs. Coast to Coast Kitchen & Bath stocks hundreds of slabs, each unique and beautiful, making any taste or style easy to fit. Granite countertops bring the awe factor to your kitchen or bathroom. If you are seriously thinking about adding granite to your kitchen or bath remodel, here are a few things to keep in mind.

What is Granite

Granite is formed from the natural process of molten lava flowing over and coming into contact with rocks in the area. This starts the process of amalgamation. Amalgamation then forms an igneous rock which is composed of quartz, mica, and feldspar. Patterns and colors seen in granite countertops or granite slabs come from the cool down process. This slow process creates the uniquely beautiful and individual pieces we get to enjoy.

The minerals that make up granite give it the unique colors we see in different types of granite. Granite colors range the spectrum from white to black to pink and is one of the most commonly known types of rocks. It has been used for thousands of years and is regarded as a symbol of status, strength, and durability.

Why Choose Granite

There are two distinct reasons to choose granite for your kitchen or bathroom countertops.

Function – Granite offers superior resistance to scratching and chipping. This natural stone tolerates heat extremely well and if the proper sealing is added granite will never shift in color. Taking care of your new granite countertops is quite simple, just keep them clean! This simple process will ensure that your countertops will last decades looking as beautiful as the day they were installed.

Aesthetics – While the functionality of the stone is a great benefit, nothing compares to the beauty offered up by granite. With the wide range of colors and patterns created by nature no two pieces are the same, allowing you to create a kitchen or bathroom as unique as you are! In fact, granite can fit into any decor.
