Just How Tough Is Sensa Granite?

Granite is a longstanding favorite in most Kenyan  homes due to its stylish looks and array of colors and patterns. A material made by Mother Nature herself, every granite slab is unique.

To enjoy years and years of long service, you must select the right granite. So, we will be shedding some light on Sensa granite by Cosentino. Just how tough is this revered stone?

We’ll take a closer look into what Sensa granite will stand up to, leaving you with tips for ensuring that your installation lasts for generations.

Sensa Granite vs. the Weather

Eco-friendly and naturally durable, Sensa granite is capable of withstanding the elements: sun, rain, snow, and wind. Unlike other natural stones, such as marble, which will naturally weather and lose their shine when used outdoors, granite maintains its luster, standing up to the abuse of time and weather with proper care.

Sensa Granite vs. Sunshine & Heat

Sensa granite can withstand extreme temperatures including sunshine as well as the heat from a grill or fireplace. But this doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to leave granite countertops exposed to the sun. Shading your kitchen area and countertops with a pergola will ensure a surface that isn’t hot to the touch on a hot sunny afternoon. Overheated countertop surface? Cool carefully with lukewarm water to avoid rapid temperature changes that could cause hot granite to crack.


Sensa Granite vs. Maintenance Effort

Simply hose-off your Sensa granite countertops before and after use, relying on a non-abrasive detergent to remove food and outdoor buildup from pollen, dirt, and outdoor grime. Since Cosentino applies a protective treatment that has high stain resistance, spills such as those from wine or mustard won’t stain. Want to extend the use of your outdoor Sensa granite countertops? Keep the countertops covered when they are not in use, or consider a covered outdoor kitchen design, such as a pergola. Though granite easily stands up to the elements, protecting the stone from the wear of weather such as sun or rain will extend its longevity.


Sensa Granite vs. Cut-Rate Imitations

Geologically speaking, many stones qualify for classification as granite, so doing your homework before investing in a slab is key to maximizing return-on-investment. As with many purchases, you get what you pay for, with substandard stone wearing far faster than a premium natural stone such as Sensa granite.
