Granite Products

Every granite slab is unique, scratch & heat resistant and extremely durable.

The variegated and natural beauty of granite makes it one of designers’ most prized materials for use in interior design applications. Each finished piece is a masterful work of nature’s art. This unique and elegant natural stone is one of the hardest and strongest stones available and every piece holds it's own story.

Granite is a natural stone defined as a crystalline, granular rock consisting of quartz, feldspar, and mica. It is formed from the rise of molten magma deep beneath the Earth’s crust. Many of these stones were formed and hardened as the Earth cooled billions of years ago. It is mined from around the world in large blocks that are cut into slabs. The slabs are polished and distributed to fabricators to create a multitude of products such as kitchen and bathroom countertops.

Granite and other natural stone products are typically considered premium, or “high end” products. One of the biggest benefits of using a natural stone is its unique and beautiful appearance. Granite is highly scratch-resistant, and is typically resistant to etching caused by acidic substances. (Other natural stone surfaces like polished marble are not etch resistant.) Hot pots and pans can also be placed directly on granite without fear of burning the surface.

The drawbacks to using a natural stone like granite are that most granites are porous to some degree and require annual sealing to protect the stone.

Granite Cleaning & Care

Clean with a clean, damp cloth and use a granite cleaning product, such as Dupont Granite and Marble Cleaner & Protector, for an additional layer of protection.  Avoid ammonia, bleach or any abrasive cleaning products with solvents or caustics, as this will remove the sealant.
