Granite is quite literally formed around the earth’s crust over thousands of years. This ancient ingenious mineral is created through the process of liquid magma gradually heating-off under extreme amounts of pressure through tectonic plates. This solidification process gives granite its trademark durability and beauty by allowing distinct color formations to be formed within the base material. This process is the main reason why granite countertops are very well-known for their strength and resilience as they are heavy-duty, scratch, heat, and acid-resistant. You can use hot pots, frying pans, skillets, and any type of kitchen equipment without worrying over your granite kitchen countertops. Our countertops will also not gather any type of mold or mildew as their porosity levels are very low. This assures that along with a high-quality sealer, such as the ones used here in Bergen Granite, your beautiful granite kitchen countertops will last for a lifetime.
At the same time granite is considered by many geologists and experts to be an eco-friendly and green material as they are a renewable mineral due to them being in a constant cycle of creation by mother earth itself. They are low maintenance and may only need resealing with high-quality material only after many years of usage.
