How to Maintain Different Countertop Surfaces 

In most cases, the purpose of a home renovation is to give it a new look that is appealing, not only on the outside but the inside as well. If you intend to sell the property in the future, this is one of the major considerations to make. The reason is that it will bear a great significance on the total value of the asset. For that reason, it is important to involve experts who advise you on the best design to adopt.

The kitchen is one of those areas where interior designers will play a significant role, in ensuring that this space is remodeled to create the best impression on buyers. Some of the kitchen counter options available to choose from in this case include Granite Countertops, natural stone, and quartz countertops. Before opting for a granite installation or any of the other options, it is important to bear in mind what it takes to maintain each of these countertop varieties.

Granite Countertops

Whether you need a granite installation for your outdoor or indoor kitchen or the bathroom countertop, Granite Countertops are the best option. That is because they are resistant to damage from changes in temperature, and staining as well. As a result, they are popular among most of those seeking to remodel their houses.

While most contractors insist that sealing granite, is not necessary, it is wise to apply a sealing agent on Granite Countertops as a precaution. So, if you want the granite installation to maintain its appeal, the sealer agent should be a priority as well.

Natural Stone

Such natural stone surfaces as onyx, soapstone, or marble are susceptible to oxidation and staining by liquids. Therefore, using a sealer to maintain their natural look after a period of two to three years is necessary. Also, it is imperative to note that oxidation can enhance the appearance of natural stone, which implies that at times, the reaction can yield positive results.

Quartz Countertops

Regarded as solid surfaces with high durability qualities, quartz countertops are not resistant to heat, because it causes discoloration or damage on such surfaces. Therefore, preventing direct contact of quartz countertops with hot pots and pans is a necessity, and trivets can help protect and maintain the solid surface, sealing is not recommended by the manufacturers on a quartz product.
