Granite is a very hard crystalline volcanic rock that can withstand much more abuse than marble. It is appropriate for kitchen counters, floors, bathrooms, etc. The polished surface of the stone can be used in high use residential counters with minimal upkeep. Like all stones, granite should be sealed after installation to minimize the risk of a stain occurring.
Granite has become an increasingly popular option because of its beautiful aesthetics and durable functionality. It’s become a stone that has been often thought of as prestigious.
There are several advantages to choosing granite tiles for anywhere in your home. The first, and most obvious, is the fact that it is one of the hardest stones in the world. Its composition, which consists of mica, quartz, feldspar, and other various minerals, makes it extremely hard and therefore extremely durable. Another major advantage for choosing granite is the fact that it is beautiful. The mix of the stones creates a unique pattern on every slab of granite produced. Therefore, in the same way that your fingerprints are unique to only yourself, your granite tiling will never be identical to that of your neighbors.
