Granite

Granite is a beautiful one-of-a-kind way to update your countertops. Granite is the lead surface type desired in homes, and is very popular. The beautiful designs found in nature make each piece unique. Granite is also able to withstand the heat of a pan and take knife nicks and other wear and tear. With granite’s beauty does come a few downfalls, including the fact that it must be sealed every so often to avoid stains. It is a porous material and can absorb liquids that could produce a stain that cannot be removed. Another thing to keep in mind is that although it is strong, it can crack under intense pressure.

Marble

Marble has an unbeatable elegance and timelines. Along with its beauty, it is also always a cool temperature, which is perfect for baking since it does not conduct heat very well. Marble is also widely available and can be very affordable, as it is one of the least expensive natural countertops. Some of the downfalls of marble are that it can scratch and stain fairly easily. Acidic foods/fruits and red wine are known for staining marble. Because of this, homeowners may choose not to have marble throughout the whole kitchen.

Wood

This beautiful countertop type is still a very popular choice today. With the many types including maple, cherry, oak, birch and teak. No matter which type of wood you have, you can add a stain or specialty finish to the wood to give it a customized look. Wooden countertops can also be easily repaired by sanding or recoating. Even though your wooden countertops everyday wear-and-tear can be fixed, water damage is the number one way to ruin your countertops. When moisture gets into the seams and cracks of the wood, the wood will expand and contract ruling the entire countertop. Fortunately, this type of damage is easily preventable with proper installation.

Plastic Laminates

Plastic laminate countertops are an inexpensive and durable choice for any home. Finding your perfect countertop is easy with the wide variety of colors and patterns this type has to offer. For the busy-bee, plastic laminate counters can be easily cleaned with soap and water while resisting grease and stains.
On the other hand, laminate tops can be damaged by hot pans, sharp knives, and abrasive cleaners; these damages are difficult to repair.
