What Houzz contributors are saying:
GraniteGranite is a hard material, resistant to extreme heat, acids and abrasions. It has a natural shine and, once it has been properly sealed, does not easily get stained (nonetheless, spills and splashes should not be allowed to rest on the surface for too long). Due to its smooth surface, dirt and marks can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth. The only drawback to granite as a kitchen backsplash material is that since it is somewhat porous, it requires annual maintenance with a sealer to prevent staining.
