One would think that with Florida’s warm climate almost year-round, there’s no need for a fireplace at home. Gone are the days that one could still wear thin fabric in January. You have to admit that in the recent years, winters are no longer too cold in The Sunshine State. And who would even think about fireplaces right after the extra-warm weather experienced in summer? Well, more and more homeowners are calling to get fireplaces installed and they have truly valid reasons.
Climate change is for real. One could experience colder winters or warmer winters, and the same goes during summer. Everything is experienced at extreme levels. Apart from the climate, there are still many who enjoy the natural warmth of the fireplace in their living room during winter. Among the many choices property owners have, granite fireplaces seem to top the list especially more recently. Why - you may ask? Here are only a few of the many advantages of granite fireplaces.
1. Granite is durable.
Granite is a very durable stone. It is meant to withstand heat. No matter how you choose to light up your fireplace, you can be sure that the granite material won’t melt down. This is also the very same reason granite countertops are popular in the kitchen. Even if you place a hot pan on it, you won’t have to worry about any damage.
2. Granite is classy and elegant.
It may be a bit more expensive compared to other fireplace materials, but granite sure is classy and elegant. It will become a centerpiece, even a conversation starter, in your living room. Its timeless look will simply remain luxurious for many years.
3. Granite may help increase the value of your property.
The top reason many Florida homeowners opt to build fireplaces in their property is for its value. Yes, real estate value increases when you add great features to your home, including a fireplace. And when you use granite, expect that value to even add up even more.
Of course, granite fireplaces are best built by qualified contractors only. It is most ideal to speak with a contractor who has years of experience building fireplaces using this material.
