Granite is versatile and durable over marble.
What is the difference between marble and granite countertops?
There are 3 main differences between granite and marble countertops:
- The look.
- The maintenance, and
- The care of the stones.
Marble is a more delicate natural stone than granite. Marble is softer and scratches more easily the granite.
How do I care for my natural stone granite countertop?
Granite countertops can be easy to care for. Soap and water are great for daily cleaning. We often recommend once a week use a natural stone cleaner. This will help you maintain the sealer and shine. Please see document here for more detailed instructions and our recommendations on how to clean and maintain your natural stone countertop.
Can I cut on granite countertops or put hot pots on the surface?
You can cut right on your natural stone countertops but we recommend you don’t. Using a cutting board will ensure that your countertops don’t get any scratches.

This but it isn’t mandatory; but remember, each piece of natural stone is unique. This means that colors and tones may be lighter or darker from one slab to the next and patterns may also vary. We recommend going to Hari Stones, Margranite, and West Coast Granite so that you can look at all of your options and choose the perfect stone for you. Please also note that all natural stones may have small imperfections as they are a natural product making each slab unique.
