It’s 2019 and spring is right around the corner, many residents of Pompano Beach are taking spring cleaning to the next level with complete remodeling projects. A popular place to start with remodeling is in the kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of most homes and there are many aspects that can benefit from upgrades such as cabinets and appliances. However, many Pompano residents have difficulty deciding what type of countertops they should go with to complete their remodeling project. Fortunately, the kind folks from Delorie Countertops are here to go into detail the different countertop options for your remodeling project in Pompano Beach.
When it comes to kitchen countertops there are two main types of materials that most Pompano residents decide between. These two types are granite and marble. Both stones have been used for many generations and are extremely durable, meaning they are built to last for many years. Let’s take a detailed look at these two stones and help you make an informed decision on which one you should go with for your new kitchen.
Granite is a natural stone and one of the hardest materials in the world, that can add a touch of sophistication and luxury to any kitchen. Durability is one of the top benefits when it comes to granite, in fact, granite is durable enough to resist chipping and scratching. Granite is such a hard material that it is rated right behind diamonds.
A huge motivating factor behind many residents of Pompano when choosing a countertop material is affordability. When it comes to granite, it is one of the most affordable types of countertops. Prices generally range from $40 a square foot all the way up to $200. Also, keep in mind granite is a long-lasting investment with a lifespan of 30 plus years.
The second type of countertop we mentioned is marble. Marble is also a very beautiful stone that will last a long time. Both types of stone can withstand high degrees of heat making them great to use for baking and cooking. Many people believe marble has a more beautiful look, style and texture than granite. However, it is more expensive. The pattern in marble is also larger and color tends to be consistent with veins running through it that concentrate the color.
In conclusion both types of stones are fantastic choices. While granite is a bit harder, they are both extremely durable. However, it is important to have your countertops properly sealed about every two years. Granite and marble are porous, so without a seal, liquids will penetrate and stain. If you cannot decide between the two, the professional employees at Delorie Countertops will help you make a decision based on the look and style of your kitchen. You can rest assured you will love the look of your new kitchen. For all of your countertop needs make sure to give Delorie Countertops a call at (954) 970-7661. We can’t wait to work with you.
