Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I install Granite Countertops?
Granite countertops are very popular and add value to the home. Granite is one of the hardest natural materials, and therefore, the granite kitchen countertops are virtually scratch resistant. Since granite is a natural material, it will never be dated like man-made products.

There are many companies that offer Granite countertops, why should I choose Granite Direct?
Granite Direct imports it’s granite directly from overseas factories, therefore we offer unbeatable prices. In addition, we also offer fabrication and we are a one-stop shop. Convenience and value!

I am concerned about staining of granite countertops, how can I prevent it?
Granite, being a stone is porous, and therefore, it absorbs liquids like red wine, etc. that can stain the granite surface, applying sealers can prevent this. All of our installations are sealed and do not need resealing for 2 years.

What maintenance is required for granite countertops?
Granite and other natural stone surfaces should be cleaned with products specifically made for this purpose (stone cleaners). Household cleaners will strip off the sealer and potentially discolor the natural stone.

What are the pros and cons of Prefabricated Granite Countertops?
Prefabricated Countertops require less labor than custom-fabricated countertops. Their limitation is that they are suitable only simple designs. Custom countertops offer unlimited flexibility in design.
