1. Price of Granite
There are different levels of granite. The price of granite depends on rarity of the color and pattern, availability of that stone. Some found in nature more than others. Location of quarries also plays important part. There are quarries all over the world and it makes it possible to satisfy almost any taste and preference in color, but it might be harder to find certain colors and patterns, and of course, there is transportation cost involved. There is also labor involved required to extract the stones. So it all effects the price of the granite. So higher price doesn’t always mean higher quality of granite.
Since granite is a natural stone, it does have some porosity. All of our granite Orlando countertops are sealed prior to installations. Stains are extremely rare. Stains usually occur when a liquid, such as wine, olive oil or juice, is spilled onto the counter and the spill is not addressed for several hours. The longer the liquid sits on the surface of the counter, the higher the likelihood a stain could occur.
Some sealants are 1-year sealants, others are 15-year sealants! The cheaper bottles will seal your counters for a shorter amount of time. Our granite Orlando countertops are sealed in production; you will not have to seal your new counters until 1-year after installation, and we also offer an option for 15 year sealer (Granite Orlando).
3. Radon Gas
There were reports generated stating that granite emitted radon gas. In the actuality the origin of the report was created by the manufacturer of a man-made countertop product as a tactic to drive consumers to their product. Granite is a natural stone, which emits extremely low gas fumes and does not cause any harmful diseases. There are many independent studies done and can be found about radon gas.
