Granite is a naturally occurring stone that is quarried worldwide, including in the US. It is a crystalline rock that is significantly harder than marble and other natural stones. Composed of interlocking mineral crystals like quartz and feldspar, each piece of granite is truly unique.
This remarkable material is highly durable and versatile, making it ideal for use in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas of a home. Homeowners, kitchen designers, and architects commonly choose granite for its wide range of colors, and patterns, and the dimensional quality it exhibits when polished.
At Universal Stone, we understand that homeowners seek countertops that are resilient, practical, easy to maintain, and long-lasting. Granite is undeniably a classic choice, and many homeowners in Charlotte opt for granite kitchen countertops.

With a clear understanding of your requirements, we fabricate countertops that meet your expectations.

Benefits of Granite Countertops
Granite is an excellent choice for countertops because of its durability and resilience. It is a natural stone that is tough and can withstand high traffic areas, such as kitchens and bathrooms. It is also heat-resistant, so you do not have to worry about placing hot pans and dishes directly on the countertop. In addition, granite is resistant to scratches and chips, which ensures that it remains beautiful over time. With proper care, granite countertops can last for decades, making it a worthwhile investment for any homeowner.
Granite Countertop Care
With proper care, granite countertops can remain beautiful and functional for decades. Regular cleaning with mild detergent and water is simple and effective. Applying a high-quality sealer annually helps protect the stone from stains and other types of damage. You can enjoy cooking and entertaining on your granite countertop without worrying about damaging it, although it's important to avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners.
How Long Do Granite Countertops Last?
When properly cared for, granite countertops can last for decades, making them a wise investment for any homeowner. The lifespan of granite countertops depends on several factors, including the quality of the granite, the installation process, and the level of care and maintenance they receive. However, granite is known for its natural hardness and resistance to scratches, chips, and heat. It is common for granite countertops to last 30 years or even longer with proper care and maintenance.
