One of the biggest cons of a granite backsplash is that it can stain due to the porous nature of the stone. Food or liquids have to be cleaned quickly so that you avoid potential staining. All this means that just like a granite countertop, the backsplash will require sealing with a proper granite sealer. Fortunately resealing can be done from once a year to once in three years.
