Granite countertops in kitchens allow homeowners to stamp their own style on their home without the high cost of similar materials, such as marble. Replacing countertops with granite can update a tired kitchen without the need for replacing every unit. Granite countertops come in a variety of patterns and colors and provide a long-lasting work surface. Granite is durable, heavy and requires special tools to cut and polish if you’re installing it.
Cut the granite with a rail saw and wet diamond blade. The granite should be clamped to a suitable workbench. Set the saw's guide on the granite and start the saw. Don't cut into the granite until the saw is up to speed.
