(HomeGarden247.com, July 13, 2012 ) Plainfield IN -- For many homeowners, adding new kitchen countertops is a major investment in the home. While laminated countertops often are half the price and more readily available at local building supply companies, granite countertop suppliers like Surface Encounters recommend granite as being a better value in the long run.

A laminate countertop, professionally installed, may cost a home owner between $25 and $50 per square foot. This price also depends on the quality and design of the laminate. Granite countertops which are professionally installed can range from $50 to $100 dollars per square foot for a complete installation. The good news is, Surface Encounters has extended their limited time special, installing new granite countertops for only $25 per square foot.
For the do-it-yourselfer laminate sheets are readily available and easy to install for $5 to $10 dollars a square foot, however these laminates often have a short life span and will need to be replaced long before granite countertops. Granite countertops are considered a one-time investment when purchased from a professional installer like Surface Encounters (http://www.halfoffgranite.com/).
Granite, a natural stone, is a very hard and durable material that has the reputation of lasting forever . It is stain resistant, heat tolerant and holds its natural luster indefinitely. “Granite often out lives the homeowner compared to laminates which are usually replaced every ten years,” notes one installer. Armed with this knowledge it becomes easy to see why granite countertops are the better value in the long run.
The cost of an average granite countertop installation ranges from $3500 to $5000 dollars and last a lifetime compared to laminate countertop which cost $1800 to $2500 but only lasts for 10 years. To the homeowner, this means one will spend a third more on laminate countertops in their thirty years of homeownership.
Along with the added expense of replacing laminate countertops numerous times, there is also the inconvenience of leaving one’s self with a kitchen or bathroom that is inoperable during the remodeling process. Often changing or updating countertops for an average kitchen can become a two or three week process depending on the contractor.
After thoughtful consideration, one can see that granite is superior compared to laminate as a material for countertops. The overall cost savings in the lifetime of the home using granite instead of laminate is greater, not to mention the value that beautiful granite countertops adds to the home. It is clearly the best choice.
