Why Choose Granite Countertops?
Granite is highly durable
Granite is one of the leading materials for kitchens, bathrooms, fireplaces, and outdoors. The majority of people don’t seem to realise why it has maintained its popularity for so long, especially for kitchens. The main reason for its popularity is its durability, versatility, and flexibility. When it comes to kitchens, you need a countertop that can handle heavy usage. As granite it’s resistant to heat and highly durable, it fits that bill perfectly.
When it comes to granite, the expression is apt. Granite is literally rock hard. When properly installed, you won’t need another countertop as long as you live. If you do come to replace it, it won’t be out of need, but rather a want as it is heat, chip, crack, and scratch resistant.
While it isn’t recommended that you set a hot tray or pan directly onto the countertop, it won’t damage the granite in the same way it would wood, laminate, or softer materials.
Once your granite has been professionally sealed following installation, it will help resist both bacteria and staining. That means when it comes to cleaning all you will ever need is soap and water. Provided you take care of clean ups quickly, you won’t need to worry about staining your counter, which means it will look brand new for decades to come.
We also specialise in granite chopping boards
When it comes to granite and your return on investment, it can be as much as 100%! This is a great way to enjoy new countertops and increase your home’s value at the same time.
As you can see Granite has plenty of benefits, but looks are important too. There’s nothing quite like the natural beauty of granite, with its gently hued beauty and unique textures.
When choosing the right granite finish we will consider each point below:
Granite is easy to clean, simply use warm soapy water and dry with a clean cloth. You shouldn’t use household cleaners that are abrasive or acidic, nor do you need wax. They’re the perfect fit for your bathroom, kitchen, or fireplace and should always be installed by a professional. Maintain your granite well, and it will serve you for decades to come.
Recent projects we have completed in Granite countertops
McMonagles were excellent and more than helpful and very good at assisting me in picking the right colour granite to go with my kitchen.
From the initial consultation in the showroom through to measurement and installation, everything was handled professionally and with minimum fuss. We were very happy with the service and we were guided in the right direction in terms of product selection by the knowledgeable sales staff. We have already recommended McMonagle Marble and Granite to friends and family and will happily continue to do so.
From start to finish we had an excellent service from Brian and his Team @ McMonagle Marble & Granite. We had fairly specific requirements and Brian went out of his way to advise us on how best to achieve the look we wanted. Our job moved on slightly quicker than we had anticipated. Brian & Noreen did their best to move our measuring and fitting dates forward, despite them being very busy at the time. I would have no hesitation in recommending McMonagle Marble & Granite.
McMonagles service was nothing short of outstanding. I spoke to many companies before choosing them and I have no regrets. I would highly recommend them to anyone. 10 out of 10 for product knowledge, communication, ability, work quality and patience. Nothing was too much trouble. I will certainly be using them again. Noreen in particular was outstanding.
We purchased a granite worktop for our kitchen. The man who came to measure up for it was excellent. The worktop arrived and was fitted to precision. Overall experience was an excellent company to deal with and very obliging.
