Top Four Reasons to Consider Granite Countertop Upgrade: Value, ROI, Joy and More.

Considering granite countertops for your kitchen renovation project? We’ve put together a list of four reasons to consider granite countertops for your Greensboro, High Point, or Winston-Salem area home. Some of these reasons may surprise you.

  • Granite countertops are a great choice as part of a kitchen renovation.
    This shouldn’t come as a surprise. Granite is a long wearing and hard surface that resists common kitchen mishaps including knife nicks, splashes, and other normal forms of wear and tear. Other countertops, like laminate and solid surface, can develop cracks, nicks, chips, and delaminate from the base to which they are bonded. Granite, on the other hand, can take whatever most kitchen enthusiasts can throw at it.
  • Granite countertops have a positive return on investment (ROI)
    Some sources suggest that there is a positive return on investment (ROI) when installing granite countertops. In fact, a new granite countertop can have an ROI as high as 75%1. Of course, different markets bring different returns and ROI may vary based on a number of factors including local market/neighborhood preference, material costs and appraisal trends in the area. However, it’s good to know that granite countertops are a well considered upgrade.
  • Home owners report a high degree of joy with a completed kitchen renovation project.
    The National Association the Remodeling Industry (NARI) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR) collaborated on a research report and developed a Joy Score2. The Joy Score is a ranking between 1 and 10. Higher Joy Scores indicate greater joy. Interior work with the highest scores included a kitchen renovation with a Joy Score of 9.8. Although this score relates to a completed kitchen renovation, there are many customers we encounter that are pleased with just a countertop and backsplash upgrade.
  • Home buyers love granite countertops and they’re good for resale value.
    Plan on selling your house at some point? Whether the market is up or down, you want your home to show at its best. If you are considering granite now, do you think a future buyer of your home will consider it as well? Chances are very good that they will. Why not enjoy new counters now and let future owners enjoy them as well? It’s a win-win.
