Stone Countertops: What are the Benefits?

Oct 12, 2022 | Premier Countertop Installation and Fabrication

If you’re thinking about new countertops, Granite or Quartz is the way to go. Stone countertops offer benefits that no other countertop material can, and you can be sure that you have a family-proof, one-of-a-kind countertop that will last you for decades to come. Here is a more in-depth look at stone countertops’ unique benefits.

Stain Resistant

When properly maintained and sealed, stone countertops are incredibly stain resistant and easy to clean. With a simple spill of coffee or wine on many other surfaces, your countertops will bear the mark of that spill for years to come. However, stone surfaces are highly stain-resistant, making clean-up a breeze. 

Scratch Resistant 

One of the best reasons to invest in stone countertops is their durability. Stone surfaces are naturally scratch and chip-resistant because of their natural hardness. If you properly take care of your stone countertops, they can last you a lifetime. You can have peace of mind knowing that your countertops can handle anything you throw their way.

Heat Resistant

Natural stone surfaces are formed by heat and pressure, meaning they are inherently heat resistant. Not needing to worry about scorching your countertops is yet another way you can be sure that your stone countertops can take almost anything you throw at them. 


No two stone slabs are the same, so the stone countertops you have (or are about to get from Bad Lizard!) in your home are truly one of a kind. You have the flexibility to choose the perfect slab to match your taste. Your new countertops will become an original expression of yourself, setting your kitchen or bathroom apart.


High-quality countertops are a great way to add lasting value to your home. Stone countertops will likely attract potential buyers when you’re ready to sell your home.
