Natural stone and granite in particular, provide organic beauty, indisputable strength and ultra durability. Granite is one of the oldest and most respected building materials.
Granite can be used indoors and outdoors, and is available in an array of striking colors, textures and finishes that will complement any décor. Granite is the ultimate material for interior design on countertops and bath vanities, reception desks, conference tables, fireplaces, pedestals and bistro tables. As an architectural stone, granite can be installed on stairs and copings, window sills and moldings, columns, interior and exterior cladding panels. When used outdoors, granite’s mineralogical composition can endure freeze and thaw cycles. Granite is somewhat porous and requires a penetrating sealer to deter stains.
Granite is dense and coarse grained and one of the hardest materials on earth, ranking close to that of quartz and diamonds, making it ideal for countertop or tile use. Granite is an igneous rock, which means it was once molten and formed as it slowly cooled deep within the earth’s surface. Minerals appear within granite as small flecks or nodules throughout the stone, creating a “salt and pepper” affect. Some types have veining similar to that of marble.
