Durable and Beautiful
Granite is a popular choice for countertops due to its high durability and aesthetic qualities. Polished granite is commonly used for kitchen countertops, bathroom countertops, shower walls and floors. While it is coveted for its beautiful colours and designs, it is also desired for its ability to resist scratches, stains and heat (when sealed properly).
What makes granite so special is that since granite is 100% natural, no two pieces are completely alike! Every block is different and carries stories of it’s own history and geography with it. It has a natural, unique and live feel to it that other materials don’t.
Granite is safe. Latest scientific research by the Environmental Health & Engineering Inc. (EH&E) shows that granite countertops are an insignificant source of radon, and that 99.95% of countertops produce lower radon concentrations than are found outdoor in the United States.
