An average person spends about 4.5 years in the kitchen and bathroom. That is nearly half of the time spent on working (10.3 years) which is pretty incredible if you think about it. Given how much of your life you probably spend in these rooms, you should give them a lot more attention.
A kitchen and bathroom makeover does not have to be extensive; often, all you need is a little surface time. For giving your kitchen and bathroom a whole new look, granite countertops are the answer. In fact, granite is quite versatile, so you can have granite kitchen countertops installed in every room in your home.
Imagine replacing your cracked or stained kitchen or bathroom tiles with the mellow sheen of granite. Imagine doing the same thing with your floor and fireplace. You can have your remodeling done in little more than a day with KNC, so you can have your dream kitchen or bathroom up and running with little delay.
You may encounter many critics out there that will try to convince you that granite countertops may not be your best choice. They will say that they cost too much, are high maintenance, scratch and stain easily, or encourage the growth of bacteria. There is a grain of truth in there, but they are not giving you the whole picture.
Granite countertops themselves do cost more than tiles in square footage, but granite has a major advantage: installation. Tiles require considerable preparation before they go on any surface, and they have to be installed one at a time. When you factor in the cost (not to mention the time it takes) for installing tiles, you will find that you come out ahead with using granite countertops. Moreover, we have the best prices for granite countertops in the state, and we have the widest selections of colors and designs.
Another major consideration is demolition. We don’t know how other granite countertop installers do it, but our innovative installation process makes use of direct installation over existing structures. You will not have to contend with dust and debris from demolition, which is the biggest party pooper in renovations.
As to other myths out there about granite, that is all they are: myths. For example, some say that granite countertops are high maintenance. That’s just not true. You do not need any special cleaning products or implements to keep the surface looking like new. Regular cleaning with soap and water, and keeping it dry, is all you need to maintain your new countertop. It is also not true that you need to seal it every year. Our granite slabs are pre-sealed during fabrication and will not require resealing for up to 15 years with regular maintenance and use.
