Corbels are an excellent option if you are looking for a solid support for heavy countertops like those made from granite. However, when it comes to choosing the best corbels for granite countertops, there are a lot of things to consider.
Quartzite is mined and cut into slabs. These slabs are then precisely cut into countertops of the desired shape and size using diamond tools. Usually after being polished, a sealant is applied to the quartzite countertops to increase their durability.
While the durable and long-lasting nature of granite is advantageous, it can at the same time be disadvantageous. If you get bored of the color or pattern of the granite over the years, you cannot replace the granite easily. Once installed, granite is difficult to remove and on removal, will damage the kitchen cabinets; thus, replacing them would mean remodeling the kitchen.
The kitchen countertop takes a lot of pounding as we fry, bake, boil, stock, spill and even chop various foods on it. Yet, we still want it to look like a million bucks. It certainly isn’t a job for any ordinary material. The candidate must literally be as strong and enduring as stone, and therefore, the most popular choices actually turn out to be two stones.
Granite countertops have to be sealed on a yearly basis to maintain their shine and luster. Neglecting sealing on a regular basis can cause the granite countertop to become cloudy and stained. Kitchen sinks have to be carefully purchased, because replacing the sink installed in-between the granite countertop will prove expensive, as it will require the removal of the entire granite slab.
Most quartz countertops are usually manufactured from a quartz composite. While naturally occurring slabs of quartz can be used after polishing, they are quite expensive, and therefore, rarely used for making kitchen countertops.
