Choosing the right material is important, and Granite Kitchens of AZ has made understanding the differences between the more popular options a simple process with their new materials comparison section.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) November 29, 2012
With housing prices once again on the rise, many homeowners are looking to add additional value to their homes. One of the most popular and successful ways to do this is through upgrading or remodeling the interior of their home. For most properties, a natural place to begin the process is the kitchen or bathrooms, as they are common areas that can become dated faster than other areas of the house. As such, a major component to this remodel is the installation of new countertops. For those new to this arena, the choice in materials for countertops can potentially be a difficult detail to finalize. Thankfully, Granite Kitchens of AZ (the leading installer of Phoenix granite countertops) has created a new section on their website for homeowners to learn more about the differences between various materials such as granite, marble, engineered stone and travertine. This section can help potential customers learn more about the pros and cons of each material before they install their new countertops.
Upgrading a home can be a major process, especially when the homeowners still live in the property. One minor miscalculation or mistake can cost thousands of dollars and countless man-hours, extending the time that the family is inconvenienced by construction. This is especially true with a kitchen or bathroom, so choosing the right materials from the beginning is of the utmost importance. Many homeowners will find this process confusing, and as such, Granite Kitchens of AZ has attempted to create an easy to review page on their website that outlines the different pluses and minuses for various materials.
Although Granite Kitchens of AZ typically recommends granite for homeowners looking to upgrade their countertops, there are other options that offer different value and aesthetics. Marble, engineered stone, travertine, and onyx all offer unique alternatives to granite, but come with negatives as well as positives. For example, travertine is an extremely durable material that is good for both indoor and outdoor use. Conversely, it is also a highly reactive substance that can be easily damaged by acidic compounds such as oranges and lemons. Granite Kitchens of AZ has aggregated these facts and organized them in an easy to read page that is perfect for anyone who is looking to upgrade their home.
As the housing market rebounds, there is no better time than the present to install upgraded, modern countertops. Once installed, they can add exponential value to the home value, and provide aesthetic upgrades that can make the home more appealing to live in. Choosing the right material is important, and Granite Kitchens of AZ has made understanding the differences between the more popular options a simple process with their new countertop materials comparison section.
