Here are some common questions we get about Granite...
What’s the difference between marble and granite?
Although both are stones and both are quarried from the earth, granite and marble are quite different from one another. The greatest difference lies in the porosity, softness and durability of marble when compared to granite.
How durable is Granite?
Thats the great thing about granite and other natural stones! When they enter your home, they are already hundreds or thousands of years old. So it will most likely last another thousand years.
Can Granite crack?
Not with ordinary use. Granite is most susceptible to cracks during shipping and installation. So by the time it gets to you, normal use is not likely to crack it.
What are the benefits of a granite countertop?
Next to diamonds, there’s not much harder than granite. It is not affected by extremes in temperature and under normal conditions granite is resistant to etching , household acids and kitchenware. In addition, granite:
· Is 100% natural and non-toxic
· Isn't very difficult to clean
· Once sealed, is a sanitary countertop material that does not harbor bacteria
· Offers a variety of finishes and hundreds of color choices/ patterns
· Resists scratching
· Resists burning or charring from hot items (fryers, griddles, toasters)
· Serves as a natural rolling board for preparing pastries, cookies and candy
· Can be easily fabricated, using curves, arches and 90-degree angles
· Is both aesthetically pleasing and a sound investment
