Granite & It's FEATURES
  1. What is Granite?
    Granite is a coarse grained, crystalline, igneous rock primarily composed of feldspar and quartz. It forms from slowly cooling magma that is subjected to extreme pressures deep beneath the earth’s surface. GRANITE is a traditional countertop material offering a variety of unique colors and patterns. A dense, natural material that is quarried from all around the world. Large blocks of the material is quarried from the mountain, then the blocks are processed into slabs, which are then fabricated into countertops.
  2. ADVANTAGES & DISADVANTAGES
    ~ ADVANTAGES ~ 1. A granite countertop is virtually impervious to abrasions, stains and extreme heat. 2. Slabs come in larger sizes and will allow more control over seam placement than quartz countertops. ~ DISADVANTAGES ~ 1. Granite requires annual maintenance. We recommend the application of a penetrating sealer annually or bi-annually 2. Color consistency can vary greatly, even within the same slab of material.
  3. SLAB SIZES & THICKNESS OF MATERIAL
    Slabs length can range from approximately 110"-126". Slab height can range approximately 58"- 80" Slabs are available in two different thicknesses.... • 2cm (approx. 3/4”) • 3cm (approx. 1-1/4”)
  4. OVERHANG GUIDELINE
    * 3cm Granite can have a maximum overhang of 10” from the cabinet without any additional support. * 2cm Granite can have a maximum overhang of 6” from the cabinet without any additional support. If a larger overhang is requested then additional counter supports will be necessary. With additionally approved supports, the overhang can extend past the support up to 5”.
