Granite is an igneous rock of visible crystalline formation and textures and contains many feldspars and quartz. The color and slab of granite comes from minerals and organic matter present when the granite was in its molten state. Granite is a very durable stone withstanding almost any element it comes up against including heat and cold. Granite itself is approximately 95% stain resistant but we use a sealer on all of our natural stone products to enhance their resistance. The frequency for resealing depends on the type of stone installed and the amount of use the countertops see. The natural beauty of granite makes it a great choice for all homes. As each countertop is uniquely different you the home owner must hand select it at one of our slab yards.
