When properly sanded and sealed, granite countertops can last a lifetime. In addition, they are treasured by homeowners because each granite block is an artwork in itself. Unlike engineered stone countertops which are man-made and therefore have pre-set patterns, granite is natural stone and thus have patterns, textures and colors unique to them.
In addition to the cost of the materials, you need to consider the cost of installation of the material you choose for your kitchen countertops. Most countertop installations are best left to the experts, because they require special tools or knowledge for their proper installation. This is especially true for natural stone slab countertops and poured concrete countertops, because of the weight involved. For the do-it-yourselfer, tile countertops can be relatively easy to install, if you have a basic knowledge of tile installation.
However, tiles can easily break and are difficult to clean. You have to see to it that the grout is always firmly scrubbed, and a special solution is needed when molds and mildew start to build up between the tiles.
