Many of our clients ask us, “What is granite?” Granite is formed by solidification of liquid magma (molten rock) under the pressure of the earth’s crust. It is composed of Quartz, Mica and other minerals, making it one of the hardest stones in the world, with very close grain. It has been used for building and decorative purposes for centuries, but has become a favorite in homes across the country over the last few years.
Granite provides long lasting quality without the need for replacement. Once polished, natural granite will maintain its high gloss virtually forever. Granite countertops are heat, stain, chip, crack, and scratch resistant, making it a safer, better choice for countertops that are used frequently.
