Granite is a natural choice for the kitchen, unlike other solutions such as porcelain, quartz, or marble, which are based on synthetic (processed) stone, for example, Caesar stone. The granite stone is a natural stone carved from the mountains or the depths of the earth and undergoes polishing processes in advanced machinery. The result is an impressive natural granite, with a variety of unique textures in hundreds of styles and colors. This versatility, together with the durability and high quality of the granite, are the main reasons for the great affection of designers and architects to incorporate granite countertops into their work.
There are dozens of other styles and textures of granite countertops. Feel free to check out other styles of granite countertops in our photographed gallery, or of course come and visit in person.

Granite is indeed carved from the earth’s surface and undergone machining and polishing to give it its unique, shiny appearance. One of the special things about having granite is the fact that it’s a unique surface with texture and shades that are not found anywhere else for this reason our NYC clients love this stone for.
Design – Many believe there is nothing like the real thing. When choosing a granite you actually purchase a very prestigious surface unparalleled in terms of design and texture. Even if your neighbor wants the exact same thing, she probably won’t be able to get it because, as we mentioned, every surface has a different appearance and texture. So you actually get a kitchen with a uniqueness – one that you won’t find anywhere in NYC.
Durability – Another feature that distinguishes granite from other types of kitchen countertops is its high durability this is why our clients in New York City love it. High temperature resistant so you can place hot pans on it without fear. Also, it is known for its toughness and strength and is therefore almost completely resistant to scratches caused by sharp objects.
Warranty – There is no warranty on natural stones.
Granite Cleaning – cleaning is very simple and usually wiping with a damp cloth will definitely do, but some of our clients in NYC ask us to come back 1 or 2 times a year to seal their granites.
Price – varies in pricing, depending on the material itself. Depending on the texture and color of the granite as well as where it was carved. The price is not uniform just like the slab is unique so are the prices.
