As a custom home builder and remodeling contractor in Colorado Springs, I can't say enough about the benefits - both style and functionality - of granite.

Granite, regardless of budget and style of home, is the most popular natural stone countertop material. It's popularity is due in large part to the percieved value, stylish look, and durability. Seldom do we find a product that is both beautiful and everlasting.

Resistent to heat and scratches, a polished granite countertop with rich color variations makes a dramatic statement in the kitchen.

Incorporating an integrated sink makes cleanup a snap. Bold, dark granite countertops at bar height provide a dramatic setting and the perfect kitchen gathering space. But remember to use a protective sealant that enhances its stain protection.

As a natural material, granite comes in unlimited colors with unlimited character. This strong surface offers bold choices for top-of-the-line contemporary kitchens to gourmet cottage style kitchens. It's sleekness is the perfect compliment to any style of tile backsplashe or any style of cabinetry.

Looking for a way to improve the style and livability of your Kitchen? You can't go wrong with granite for a touch of luxury, durability, and style.
