Granite worktops offer a range or home or business-boosting benefits: they look stunning, they’re incredibly durable, and they’re easy to maintain.

Quality granite benchtops can withstand a great deal or wear and tear, all while retaining their looks. In fact, usually, a decent granite benchtop will last between 12 and 15 years.

But, as durable as granite benchtops may be, like everything in this world, you will need to replace them at some point.

Knowing when to replace your granite benchtop can be tricky, but as trusted local experts, we’re going to tell you how to spot the tell-tale signs.

Let’s get started.

Cracking or erosion

Granite benchtops are tough. But, constant use will cause your benchtops to show signs of ageing over time.

It’s possible to repair small cracks or blemishes but if you notice multiple cracks or patches of erosion, it’s more than likely that your benchtops need replacing.

Stains or burn marks

Again, it is possible to remove stain or burn marks but if they are severe, no amount of specialist products or elbow grease will make a difference.

If you have burn marks of stains that you can’t remove and are becoming unsightly, it’s probably time to upgrade to a new granite surface.

Renovation or remodelling

If you’re renovating or remodelling, you might find that your existing countertops don’t fit the style or aesthetics of your new kitchen.

That said, if you are looking to overhaul your kitchen completely, opting for a new modern granite finish will work wonders—which brings us onto our next point.

Property value

If your existing granite worktops are starting to lose their shine and are a little outdated, replacing them will make a wise and functional investment.

Modern granite worktops are an excellent investment for any Brisbane home as they will look amazing, are affordable, and will add value to your property. A real win-win-win.
