Granite Kitchen and Bathroom Countertops

Granite: Built to Last by Mother Nature

Granite’s inherent strength, abrasion resistance and superior weathering durability are why it is one of the preeminent material selections available to today's architects.

Because it is one of the hardest of the dimension stone types, Granite was historically avoided by the smaller, local stone fabricating shops. They favored marbles and limestones due to their easier working properties. A recent boom in the supply of affordable machinery and abrasives technologies eliminated these previous difficulties in fabrication. The use of Granite has skyrocketed in residential interior applications as a result.

Unique and Durable

Available in a striking array of colors, Granite's durability, longevity and economy make it ideal for kitchen countertops and other heavily used surfaces, including tabletops and floors.

There are more than 1,000 varieties of Granite. Some of our most popular are Baltic Brown, Ubatuba Green, Santa Cecilia, New Venetian Gold, Blue Pearl, Tan Brown, Tropic Brown, Crema Bordeaux, Giallo Ornamental, Giallo Napoleone, GialloVeneziano, Peacock Green, Butterfly Green and Giallo Fioritto.

The hardness of the minerals comprising most types of Granite surpasses that of the most utensils. Granite is typically heat resistant up to temperatures of 480°F, although direct application of localized heat sources is discouraged, since strong thermal gradients within the stone can initiate cracking. Studies of bacteria retention on common countertop surfaces have proven Granite superior to the majority of surfaces employed for that purposes.
