Granite counter tops are simply amazing to look at. They are durable and water resistant. Apart from having a long life, a granite counter top also requires low maintenance and is resistant to chemicals as well.
Granite Countertops vary in price according to what color you want. And then details such as edge selection, finish, and backsplash sizes can affect the price dramatically.The square foot price generally doesn't include all the "extras", like edge details, templating, installation, sealing the tops, adding backsplashes, adding a glossy finish, etc. So you just need to be careful and visit all different stores and compare the prices and quality.
