Ottawa Granite Countertops Life Expectancy

Offered in TNT’s showrooms serving Ottawa, West Ottawa, Carp, Kanata, Stittsville, West Carleton, Dunrobin, and Arnprior, Granite is one of the most popular materials for Ottawa kitchen countertops as well as bathroom vanities.

Not a manufactured but rather a natural stone, granite has the benefit of lasting far longer than other countertop surfaces like laminate or formica.  This will pay off in the future as not only will they not need replacing, but they maintain their great look and feel, giving you an edge when it comes time to sell our home.

Since granite is a natural stone, you can expect granite countertops to last in your kitchen or bath for 100 years or more with proper care and maintenance.

The nature of granite is that of a hard, dense stone meaning it doesn’t scratch easily, withstands hot pots on its surface and it isn’t affected by acidic liquids that might spill on your Ottawa countertops. You can cut on it without dragging out the cutting board, or work directly on your Ottawa granite countertops with genuine ease.

While granite can withstand wear-and-tear and years of use (and abuse), you will need to perform a little bit of regular maintenance on your Ottawa granite countertops to keep them looking great. Ottawa granite countertops will need to be sealed once or twice a year.
