Granite is an igneous rock that is formed under high heat and pressure and has a crystalline structure that is composed of feldspar and quartz. This is what gives granite its unique look and color variations. It has a similar look as marble but is much more affordable. After the granite is sliced into layers the surface is polished, which gives it a glossy finish. Granite can be purchased in tiles or in slabs, which are great for countertops because you don’t have to worry about cleaning grout lines.

- It is incredibly durable and holds up well in high traffic areas.
- It adds a sleek and modern look to any home.
A Few Things to Consider…
Like all natural stones, granite needs to be sealed when it is first installed. Thankfully our experts will do this for you! Remember to seal the stones on a semi-annual basis to maintain its beautiful look. While granite is very durable, it can feel hard underfoot and can be quite slippery when wet.
