Granite is one of the best options that you can have to decorate the exterior of your home. The material is scratch-resistant and unlikely to crack or chip if something hard comes into contact with it. In addition, granite is highly resistant to fire. A typical fireplace can burn at temperatures from 2012 degrees Fahrenheit, while the melting point for a slab of granite is between 2219 degrees to 2300.  Granite so durable that some people cook directly on a granite that is placed above a fire. 



Since granite is a natural stone, it is much easier to clean and maintain compared to its less natural counterparts. Thanks to the strength of the stone, you do not need to maintain it as much. Even if you do clean it overzealously, it still will not harm the material or its look over time. With other materials, like slate, constant cleaning and risking damage become concerns.



Granite is a simple stone. It has a shiny appearance and comes in a wide variety of colors so that you will be able to find the perfect piece that will match the aesthetic of your home.
