We are considering three different granites for a kitchen application.


Golden Crystal
Ivory Fantasy
Incas Gold - we really like this one.

Can't find much info on them on the Web. From what I have found, Ivory Fantasy is very porous; can't find any other info on the others. The slabs have a seal on them already (resin?) and I need to know if they need to be sealed and if they are good or not good for a kitchen.

Also does anyone know of any local yards (Tampa Bay area) I can go to check out more slabs?

Thanks,
Dorothy

Dorothy,

When dealing with granite and marble, please keep in mind that you are not in Kansas anymore (pregnant pause).

The Inca Gold you made mention of can be a reference to a granite of the same name or a marble of the same name. What is that you ask? You want to know the difference between granite and marble? I am going to gloss over a few of the differences, as you can gain an in-depth knowledge of granite vs. marble by Googling both.

Okay, granite is one of the hardest rocks known to man. It is very dense, and therefore not very porous. That is why granite makes pretty good kitchen counters. It does not scratch, and will not absorb stains very easily or quickly. That is why granite does not require much of a sealer. Marble is just the opposite. It scratches fairly readily, and absorbs stains fairly quickly as well. If you want to see a huge warehouse full of all types of granite, schedule a visit to Keys Granite. A division of Daltile. Just click on the link.
