THE BEAUTY OF GRANITE
Beauty and durability make polished Granite a popular choice for many kitchen Benchtops.
Granite is a common and widely occurring intrusive, felsic, igneous type of rock. Granite is nearly always massive and lacking internal structures, hard and tough, Granite has gained widespread popularity as the ‘stone of choice’ for Benchtop surfaces.
Granite slabs will have similar general characteristics, like colour, depending on where it has been mined. However, each slab will vary from the next to a greater degree than the engineered stones. It is therefore recommended that the slab is inspected prior to being cut for your bench top.
As Granite is a natural product small fine cracks can be present in the stone. These natural occurrences in the surface are not considered defects. Granite surfaces carry a 10-year limited warranty for residential Installations. Available in 20mm and 30mm thickness, it comes in an assortment of colours and surface finishes, e.g. Polished, Honed & Leathered. Granite can be mitred to form thicker profiles although this may not be possible in all colours.
