Granite is an igneous rock formed from magma, that can be found in many different types of colors, ranging from dark granite to light granite colors. It is a very hard and tough rock that can be found all over the Earth, in many different countries and places. After it is mined, one side is polished, the rock is sliced up into “granite slabs”. With those slabs we can create anything we’d like from kitchen countertops to shower-pans. Consider some of the benefits of using granite in your home:

extremely tough

Granite Countertops are one of the best types of countertops for any home. The abuse from children, heat or other elements found in the kitchen or bathroom will not be able to harm your granite countertops. Granite is a hard, durable surface that has already survived many of the elements on earth today. It is very hard to scratch granite and granite will not burn.
