Granite is tough. It’s a great option for countertops because of how strong it is. It’s difficult to scratch, stain, burn, chip or damage your granite countertops through everyday use. Weaker materials may damage over time during daily tasks like food preparation, cooking with hot pots and pans or use of appliances – but not granite.

If you think granites tough on its own, you should see it once it’s sealed. Sealing your granite can help prevent discolouration or change from contact with liquids. Before your granite arrives at your house, Custom Granite and Marble applies a 15-year sealer on top of the factory resin. This added protection gives you peace at mind that you have years of use without deterioration.
