GORGEOUS GRANITE COUNTERTOPS IN EDMONTON

A B Tile & Stone is a family-owned and operated business offering granite countertop solutions in Edmonton for over 40 years. Granite is the most preferred choice for stonework elegance. Our installers will help you create the perfect look for your home and show you why granite countertops are sought after.

Creating granite countertops is a comprehensive process. It starts with quarrying big granite blocks and transporting them to a processing facility. The blocks are cut into slabs using diamond saws and polished to a smooth, shiny finish. An accurate countertop template ensures the ideal fit, followed by slicing the slabs to size and polishing the edges to the desired profile. The granite is then sealed to safeguard against stains and improve durability. Finally, the countertops are taken to the installation site, secured to cabinets, and given a conclusive cleaning and review to ensure they meet industry standards.

WHY CHOOSE GRANITE COUNTERTOPS?

Granite is a 100% natural stone quarried from large rock formations composed of minerals such as feldspar, mica, and quartz, giving every slab a unique array of colours and crystalline design. Granite countertops are preferred by Edmonton homeowners due to their durability. You can find a wide range of colours and textures in granite. You get a real natural stone with a granite installation for your countertops. Granite has a polished, smooth surface and a rich lustre, adding a significant touch of luxury at a competitive price. There are other finishes available, such as honed or textured satin. With many options available, from subtle white granites to dark black granites and everything in between, granite can easily blend in with your existing interior layout.

BENEFITS OF GRANITE COUNTERTOPS

At A B Tile & Stone, we have a unique collection of granite countertops. We offer timeless natural stone that will add value to your home and give your kitchen or bathroom a luxurious look.

You can find an incredible selection of granite slabs in a variety of patterns and colours. Our friendly team members will show you our selection and help you find the perfect countertop for your home. We will cut your new countertop to the exact specifications and also undertake the installation. Granite is a great option to consider for your countertops because of these benefits:

  • High-end look and colour retention - Granite countertops have rich, naturalistic colours that remain lively and exquisite for years, ensuring a long-lasting, high-end look. They offer a luxurious and timeless aesthetic for kitchens and bathrooms.
     

  • Distinctiveness - All granite countertops are distinctive. Each has unique patterns and colour variations that give your space a striking personality and polish. 
     

  • Durability — Granite countertops can resist daily wear and tear. They are made from a natural rock and polished. Any natural voids in the stone are filled with binding polymers that increase the strength of the stone, guaranteeing your countertops will remain in fantastic condition for years.
     

  • Low maintenance - Granite is bacteria-resistant. It is also not easily affected by chips, scratches, or heat. Direct heat may crack the stone so be mindful of hot pans out of the oven. As it does not stain easily, maintaining granite countertops is pretty simple. Just clean with soap and water to have a clean countertop. Repairs are typically easier to perform on granite than quartz. We stock cleaners for routine use as well as specialized cleaners and sealers.
     

  • Heat resistance - Granite countertops are ideal for kitchens as they are highly heat-resistant. Still isn’t recommended to put hot pots and pans directly on the surface.
     

  • Scratch resistance — Granite is one of the hardest materials, so it is scratch-resistant. This means you can use your chopping knife easily and directly on the surface without worrying about the countertop's look. It won't get damaged for years! Still recommended to use a cutting board as your knife will dull but also helps avoid impact onto the surface which could damage the stone.
     

  • Natural material - Granite doesn’t emit harmful chemicals and provides a natural beauty that synthetic materials cannot replicate, making it a sustainable choice for your home. It is an environmentally friendly natural stone. 

GRANITE COUNTERTOPS FOR KITCHENS

Granite is a durable stone—a must-have for any kitchen. The material is heat-resistant, so proximity to a stovetop won't discolour the surface. Although we recommend a pot holder or coaster on any countertop, most granite can withstand hot pans without scratching, chipping, etching, scorching, or otherwise damaging the surface because granite is an extremely hard material. Granite is heavy and strong, so it won’t fade or crack. It is resistant to daily wear and tear.

GRANITE COUNTERTOPS FOR BATHROOMS AND VANITIES

Regarding decor and functionality, granite is a wonderful option to complement and enhance your bathroom. Granite counters perform well in the bathroom due to their beauty, solidity, and water-shedding properties. When granite is well-maintained, it can be highly functional for decades.

Granite is one of the best natural stones for bathroom vanities. Most clients choose this stone to achieve a dramatic and timeless aura in their remodelling. Granite is also an option for bathroom vanities and countertops to complement sinks, cabinets and lighting.

FAQS

The following are some commonly asked questions about our granite countertops in Edmonton and the surrounding areas:

CAN I CUT DIRECTLY ON MY GRANITE COUNTERTOP?

While you can cut directly on your granite countertop, we don't recommend doing so. For starters, cutting on your countertop can dull your knives. Secondly, although granite is strong, it can still chip. We recommend using a cutting board.

CAN GRANITE BURN?

Placing hot pans and appliances on your granite countertop will not burn it. However, prolonged exposure to extreme heat can damage your countertop. For this reason, recommend using hot pads and trivets under your pots and pans. While granite is heat-resistant, sealants and finishes are not.

DOES GRANITE PROVIDE GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY?

Yes, absolutely! Granite countertops add beauty and functionality to your home, enhancing its value on the market and making it an excellent investment.
