Durability and Versatility
Granite is a popular stone that is commonly used in residential and commercial design because of its durability and versatility. It is made of minerals such as feldspar, mica and quartz resulting in variations of colors, speckle and veining.
Granite is a very heavy, natural stone and needs to be supported by sturdy cabinetry or a subsurface. In the design phase for granite, clients should consider a space or surface that can withstand the heaviness of this stone for decades to come. Granite is, without a doubt, one of the most common stones among new construction and remodeling projects, commercial and residential. Granite is one of the most durable stone materials that is highly resistant to heat, scratches and staining.
