Granite FAQ

Granite is one of the most popular and enduring materials for countertops, and with good reason: it’s beautiful, durable, and adds a lot of value to your home. Here at Williams Fabrication in Woodstock, GA, we get a lot of questions about this natural stone, so we’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions to help you decide if granite is right for your needs.question marks

  • Does it Stain? With proper sealing (like you’ll find on all our products at Williams Fabrication), granite is extremely stain-resistant.
  • Does it Scratch? The only things that can scratch granite are things that are harder than granite–which doesn’t include steel, by the way. In fact, granite sits at about a 7 on the Moh’s Scale of Hardness, which means it’s harder than most other minerals and is difficult to scratch.
  • Do I Need a Cutting Board? Yes! While your knives won’t scratch or harm your granite countertops, your granite will definitely harm your knives. Always use a cutting board to protect your knives from dulling, wearing out, or even breaking.
  • What Colors Can I Get? We have natural granite slabs in hundreds of beautiful, unique colors and patterns. Check out our portfolio for some samples, but remember that our Woodstock location the best place to see what we have to offer!
  • How Do I Clean It? Sealed granite resists bacteria, and can be cleaned easily with mild soap and warm water. Make sure to avoid abrasive cleaners, as these can cause scratching.
