Premier Surfaces Sheds Some Light on 3 Misconceptions About Granite Counters

Protect the value of your home and increase your enjoyment by installing Atlanta granite counters in your kitchen.

    ATLANTA, GA, May 27, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Granite is an amazingly durable and resilient material, which is why it is a popular choice as a kitchen countertop in many homes throughout the country. However, Premiere Surfaces notes that there continues to be certain misleading myths about this natural stone and its capabilities.

First, although granite is highly resistant to heat, direct contact with excessive heat can damage the seal and may cause cracking even on a granite surface. Never put a heated object directly on a granite countertop. Set a hot object on a trivet instead.

Second, granite countertops are not radioactive. They do not release radon, which has been known to cause cancer. Granite countertops are completely safe. Third, even high-quality granite countertops may chip or crack when bashed by heavy, hard objects. Granite is very durable, but it is not indestructible.

Premier Surfaces is a leading Atlanta granite supplier that also carries a wide inventory of other natural stone products. All their slabs are carefully selected for quality and are installed by highly trained and seasoned installers.
