What are Granite Countertops?

Answer:
There is nothing more beautiful than the warmth of

natural materials used in the construction or remodeling of a home.  When focusing on the kitchen, nothing is more luxurious than the inclusion of granite countertops .  Granite is a natural crystalline that is generally quarried, cut, edged, sanded, buffed, profiled, and sealed in preparation for sale as countertop material.
