Advantages of Granicrete Countertops versus Marble and Granite

 
Here are some key advantages of  the Granicrete countertop system compared to marble or granite countertops:

  • A system that can be applied over existing substrates 
  • This system has almost limitless color possibilities, extremely colorfast with colorants that will not fade and  customized edges
  • This system is completely impervious to any moisture while granite is extremely porous and absorbs moisture and bacteria. The Granicrete system is USDA approved while granite is not!
  • Absolutely not going to accept a stain while Granite stains easily with fruit, peanut butter, olive oil, bacteria, etc.
  • With phenomenal tensile strength, Granicrete will expand and contract to its environment. Granite, on- the-other hand, has no flexibility and is considered a brittle substrate.
  • Completely food safe and Radon free while most granite has at least trace amounts of  radon
  • Our topcoat provides exceptional heat and scratch  resistance
