What is Granite?
Granite originates in molten magma which flows into other types of rock and then cools slowly. It is these other types of stone which create the different colors and patterns in granite. Since it is a natural stone, it has the roughness and texture of most other stones.
Granite is a porous stone, which means that granite countertops will require a sealant in order to avoid being stained by substances seeping into their surfaces. Since you are making this investment into your Dallas home, you will certainly want to protect that investment with a granite sealer. Fortunately, Granite Republic offers a granite sealer for your Dallas countertops with a 25 year warranty, so you will not have to worry about stains for a very long time.
