Advantages: Granite is tough to beat when it comes to durability, due to its heat- and scratch-resistant qualities; it can bear up to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. Granite can also be stain and water resistant when it's properly sealed. Those seeking an unusual slab or a unique pattern will not be disappointed with the seemingly limitless choices.
Disadvantages: Installation can get tricky due to granite's hefty nature. And if you choose some of the more exotic slabs, costs can quickly escalate.
