Topic: hard wood or granite kitchen counter top

sir!
one of your info section (http://www.gharexpert.com/articles/Counter-Tops-1317/Kitchen-Counter-Tops-Part-1_0.aspx) says that hardwood kitchen counter would cost less than stone, granite, solid surface or tile. Is this true? what hardwood in india are you talking about? what will it cost per square foot and how to fit?

Dear Amit

 Hard wood is the wood such as Hollac wood, seaseem wood, keekar wood etc and these planks after finishing by carpenter can be fixed for counter top and finished with either paint or laminated or finished with fixing thin seat of aluminum.As you stated that our article says it is cheap this is true but in the article next line  is that it damaged by water and get stain after some time. Actually In rural area where we have counter top of wood have not use water on that top and use them to store articles on that tops. Now i think it is clear to you.
A wooden top is long lasting if it’s sealed and installed properly. Hardwood tops are usually costlier than laminate but it is less expensive than stone, granite, solid surface, tile or steel. The top has some drawbacks because it can be damaged by water and get stains after some time.
For more clarification if any than write to the gharexpert forum and you will get the Answer.
