Coasters on counters?

7 years ago

We're in the midst of a remodel. Looking for very durable countertop. Contractor is telling us, that regardless of countertop that we should use coasters, and force houseguests to use the same. We haven't done that with our granite, and after 14 years it still looks great. We don't need pristine over long haul--but particularly when we have people over (a few times a year we'll have 25+ people), I just can't imagine forcing everyone to use a coaster. I understand for wood, but for granite or quartz--is that really a baseline expectations that coasters need to be used for glasses and wine/beer bottles?
