Granite

Granite is a composite of quartz, alkali, and feldspar. It is an igneous rock and is formed by magma. Granite comes in a large variety of colors, please check out our gallery to see  a few examples, or make an appointment to visit a stone yard to select your own.

 

Granite is ideal for a wide variety of applications both indoor and outdoors, high traffic or low traffic. This makes it a flexible stone for practically any project in your home or business.  

 

A few common uses are:

  • Kitchens
  • Indoor and outdoor bars
  • Vanity tops
  • Tub decks and shower surrounds
  • Pool decks
  • Desks
  • Table tops and stands
  • Window Sills
  • Shelves
  • Household accessories such as lazy susans, decorative platters, cutting boards, pastry boards, and many more options.

 

Benefits of Granite are:

  • Every slab is unique
  • Heat will not damage the surface
  • Granite will not chip or crack under normal wear and tear
  • Naturally resistant to stains
  • 2nd on the Mohs Hardness Scale to diamonds
  • Low Maintenance – just clean with soap and water
  • Does not harbor bacteria
  • Can be honed or polished

 

Due to the porous nature of natural stone it is possible to absorb water and oils; we therefore recommend an impregnating sealer.
