Granite is igneous rock is formed by volcanic action or intense heat, which liquefies rock deep in the Earth and which solidifies upon cooling. Because of the way granite was formed millions of years ago, it is synonymous with quality, strength, permanence, solidity and hardness. These characteristics make it an ideal choice for a kitchen countertop surface.
Most granite used for countertops is polished to a high-gloss finish giving it a mirror-like appearance. On closer inspection however, many granites have certain natural characteristics such as pitting, fissures or dull spots that may at first cause some concern. It is important to understand the geological reasons for these characteristics to fully appreciate the beauty of stone.

  • Beneficial Features – The stone is naturally durable and water resistant with antibacterial and stain proof characteristics. Granite is also scratch and heat resistant.
  • Granite Care– Use a granite sealant for an additional layer of protection. Clean with a clean, damp cloth and use a small amount of soapy water for heavy residue or debris. Avoid ammonia, bleach or any cleaning products with solvents or caustics, as this will remove the sealant. LEARN MORE
