Ideas & Inspiration from Chicago Countertop Contractors

Chicago Granite Counters

You've seen them on home improvement shows, manufacturer's brochures, and in person, but somehow, homeowners never get tired of granite counters. Chicago residents who want elegance and performance for their kitchens or bathrooms know that granite is a material that can satisfy both these criteria. In Chicago, granite counters are found in prominent commercial settings as well in residences, and add a touch of class just about anywhere they are installed. With a long-standing reputation as one of the best materials money can buy, there are many reasons to choose granite for your home.

The Windy City is home to many different kinds of people in many different situations. Though people's tastes in aesthetics are as diverse as their taste in food, in Chicago, granite countertops are going to be at home in nearly every setting. No matter what look or feel you're trying to create, granite counters add a compliment that speaks of both history and luxury without getting pretentious. There is more, however, to Chicago granite countertops than just good looks.

When it comes to performance, granite is hard to beat. Able to hold up to just about any common kitchen or bathroom use for decades at a time, installing a granite counter is a great course for those who don't want to replace their counters ever again. No matter what kind of food preparation your kitchen is likely to see, your granite counter will be able to handle it.

In Chicago, granite counters are also a good financial benefit. Two of the most heavily scrutinized areas when trying to sell a property are kitchens and bathrooms. When adorned with attractive, solid granite counters, Chicago's prospective homebuyers are going to give these areas a second glance in a very good way. Another thing to consider is the fact that granite countertops often gain rather than lose value with age!

Like any material, there are a few cons to go with the significant amount pros you get with granite countertops. Chicago homes that are deficient in many other areas might find that putting in a high end granite counter will actually point out rather than hide a property's other flaws. It is also important to understand that, though they are very strong and durable, granite counters are not indestructible. Like all natural stone, granite is somewhat porous; it can be sealed to reduce the likelihood of stains, but a puddle of red wine left to sit for hours can certainly leave its mark (especially on lighter colored stone). Granite counters hold up pretty well to heat, but it is still a good idea to use a trivet to protect the surface from burn scars.

Reasons to Install
Opting to install granite counters is often a purely aesthetic choice. There are, however, many other reasons why this material is perfect for your Windy City home. They are extremely durable; while no material is impenetrable, granite holds up well when exposed to common kitchen conditions. It is difficult to stain or burn (this is especially true of darker, high-quality granite), and is virtually immune to knife work of any kind. Additionally, your granite counters can literally last a lifetime as long as you make good on the maintenance stipulated by the manufacturer.

In Chicago, granite counters are also popular for a reason that is just as practical as the ones above, but has little to do with the physical properties of the stone itself. Homeowners looking for home improvement projects that will increase resale value and make their property more marketable need look no further. When prospective buyers see quality material like granite counters, they are more likely to find your home desirable. If well maintained, granite counters actually increase in value over time!

Special Concerns
Natural materials like granite and quartz are highly prized and can look good in almost any setting. There are, however, some considerations with natural stone that are simply not a factor with other materials. For example, while there should be little problem installing materials such as acrylic solid surface or laminate in just about any kitchen or bathroom in Chicago, granite counter tops are much heavier than these synthetic materials and might require structural reinforcement in older homes where this kind of weight was simply not anticipated by the builders. Also, natural stone is a porous product. Opting for the highest quality granite can reduce the degree of porous-ness your counter will have, but no natural stone will be completely impervious to pooled liquid on its own. You'll have to have your granite counters sealed periodically to prevent stains.

Another aspect of installing Chicago granite counters that is worth considering is the overall appearance of the setting it will be placed in. As granite and other natural stone are generally considered "luxury" materials, placing them in a kitchen or bathroom that is full of lower quality or outdated materials can actually detract from the look of the room. This is especially important if you are planning on selling the property in the future.

Another drawback of installing granite counters in Chicago is the price. Though not outrageous in cost, granite isn't the cheapest material on the planet, either. According to our statistics for Chicago, granite counters can cost anywhere between $1,500 and $9,000 to install; when you compare this to laminate counter installation in Chi-town (which start at about $500 and max out at around $1,500), homeowners on a budget can easily see why the latter is popular despite its mediocre performance. When compared with the average installation cost nationwide (a little under $5,000), Chicago granite countertop installation is about on par. The upside is, when you install granite counters, you really get what you pay for. In many cases, a new granite counter will easily last the lifetime of your home.
