Marble vs Granite, What’s the difference?

Marble vs Granite

Appearance: Although fairly similar in appearance, there is more than meets the eye when it comes to Marble vs Granite. Granite shows grains in its layered sediment that created the naturals stone structure and beautiful effects. Whereas Marble shows a much larger pattern, with veins that run through the really make the colour stand out. 

Hardness and Durability: The difference between Marble and Granite cannot be seen, but comes down to the compound makeup of the natural stone. Granite is much harder than Marble and therefore is more resistant to scratches. Although both products are resistant to heat. Be sure to be careful when placing hot pots or plans on your countertops.

 Both marble and granite countertops are quite durable, but ONLY if they are properly sealed every one or two years. Granite and marble are porous, so without a seal, liquids will penetrate and stain.

Countertop Maintenance: Most experts agree that granite requires moderate maintenance when compared with solid surface, quartz, laminate, glass or ceramic tile.

Marble is moderate to high maintenance. The care involved in keeping it sealed, avoiding acidic materials and wiping up spills quickly. Whereas Granite is more durable and doesn’t need as much maintenance. Making it the wiser decision for countertops.
