Why Granite Is A Great Material For Many Surfaces

Bathrooms, Kitchens, Utility rooms, Granite has so many uses. This is due to its non-porous properties that make it ideal for surfaces.

Granite, being non-porous, helps to protect the surface from stains when spillages occur. Granite can be an investment of cost to consider when thinking about new surfaces. It will look beautiful in any room and therefore a great addition. It has the natural look that is very much desired due to its natural properties.

What makes Granite so desirable?

Granite is a very solid material making it unable to bend slightly and react to weight unlike other surfaces. There is little technology that goes into making a Granite Countertop Surface. Although, Granite has been quarried for many years in both domestic and industrial applications. It is an exceptionally time tested surface making it a timeless natural look.

How does Granite get cut to size?

Granite is shaped and sized to the desired measurements using industrial cutting and finishing equipment in a factory. A router, grinder and other equipment may be used to finish the edges off to perfect the stone. Granite can therefore be used in Kitchens and Bathrooms with ease.

The way the Granite is patterned, may give the look to some customers of being flawed due to it being a natural material. This is due to it being a natural stone and no two slabs of the stone will ever be the same. This, of course, makes everyone unique. Some customers may require the Granite worktops to be fitted around kitchen items such as sinks or the cooker, panelling may also be considered.

Therefore, the edges of the Granite Kitchen Countertop may need to be rounded off to make a more natural looking flow to it.
