It’s morning. Again. Time to trudge down to your kitchen, make breakfast (but first, coffee) and start your day. Maybe you’re greeted by boring vinyl counters. Maybe you walk across a cracked laminate floor. Maybe your backsplash hasn’t been updated since shag carpets were all the rage.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could wave a magic wand and update your kitchen? You know, bibbity-bop-bounter, update my counters? Look no further. Granicrete Minnesota is your kitchen remodel fairy godmother, and we’re here to dispel your renovation worries.
Common Myths About Renovating Your Kitchen with Granicrete
Kitchen renovation has to be expensive.
Have you ever priced out a full kitchen remodel? Sticker shock alert! The average homeowner spends $17,000 on a full kitchen remodel, but you don’t have to. Granicrete is a natural stone alternative at an affordable cost. Starting at $50.00 – $80.00 per square foot, Granicrete counters, floors, backsplashes, and more are within your reach… and your budget.
Granicrete counters are high-maintenance
Have you ever spilled wine on a granite countertop? If you don’t clean it up right away, liquids can seep into the porous stone and cause staining. And worse? Bacteria. Non-porous, bacteria-resistant, non-staining Granicrete is NSF Certified for your peace of mind and ease of use. Maintenance for Granicrete is so simple! Just clean your counters with soap and water, and you’re good to go. If you’ve got a stubborn bit of grime stuck on your Granicrete counter, we recommend Windex. Want something less harsh? Try “The Original Bee’s Wax” – it’s foodsafe!
Concrete is unattractive – no thank you!
Granicrete is a highly customizable product. Unlike traditional concrete, we offer Granicrete flooring, counters, and more in every color you can think of. Want marble-inspired counters without paying for natural stone? Granicrete. Looking to match a specific color in your design? Granicrete. Want a piece of art instead of a generic tile backsplash? Yep – Granicrete does that too.

Some granite alternatives certified food safe
If you like the look of stone but want to avoid the sealing issue, consider quartz (such as Cambria) or a cement-based surfacing material (such as Granicrete).
Cambria counters are made from dense quartz crystals embedded in resin that does not absorb moisture. Granicrete is a modified cement-based surfacing material that is colored to resemble granite and sealed with clear epoxy and/or water-based polyurethane. It can be installed over engineered wood or laminate.
Because Cambria and Granicrete are less porous, neither absorbs bacteria or stains. What’s more, both are certified for commercial food equipment materials (splash zones) by the independent testing organization, National Sanitation Foundation (NSF). Granicrete’s epoxy surface had been NSF/ANSI 51 certified since 2011. However, the Granicrete’s WB-P53 polyurethane finish just earned NSF 51 approval last month.
