Benefits of Granite Sinks
One of the most significant benefits of installing a granite sink is its durability and strength.
Granite resists heat and scratches. You can take a hot pot right off the stovetop and put it directly into the sink without worrying about damaging the stone. If you let dishes pile up in the sink, you don’t have to worry about them making marks on the stone either. You can even place knives into the sink without worry since the granite resists damage.
With such strength and durability, your granite sink will continue to look brand new for years after you install it. Whether you’re updating features in your home to put it on the market or want to enjoy the new feature for yourself, a granite sink makes a wonderful addition to any kitchen or bathroom.
Drawbacks of Granite Sinks
Granite, like other natural and man-made stones, has great variance in its patterning. If you like a more uniform look, you may not like the appearance of granite. For example, if you’re building double sinks in a master bathroom, both sinks will not look identical.
The cost is another potential drawback, depending on how much granite you’ll need to complete your project. If you’re using granite for your countertops, a larger kitchen will need several large slabs. For a granite sink, you don’t need as much of the material.
The last disadvantage of granite is that it needs to be resealed once a year to keep it in the best condition possible.
Maintaining a Granite Sink
Besides resealing it yearly, you don’t need to provide much more maintenance to your granite sink. When you clean the stone, we recommend using non-abrasives and mild cleaning products.
You don’t even need to polish your granite sink to keep it shining. If you do believe that your granite needs polishing, we recommend contacting a local granite professional like Lesher Natural Stone, Quartz, & Tile.
Granite Sink Cost
The price for granite usually begins around $60 per square foot. The size of the project, the current prices for granite, and the cost of labor will all affect the final price of your granite sink installation.
