STONE INFORMATION:

GRANITE

Granite is an igneous rock (formed by heat) found deep within the Earth’s crust. Once quarried, cut, polished, and sealed granite is nearly impervious to scratches, heat, etching, staining, or weathering. It is truly one of Mother Nature’s most versatile and beautiful creations.

Most granite is quarried in Brazil and India. However, we also have access to stones from Russia, Spain, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Norway, and Finland. The majority of these rocks are imported to the U.S.A. via Spain and Italy where they are cut and polished into the forms you see at your local slab yards.

The most common use for granite today is in building and remodeling projects such as kitchen and bathroom countertops. The look, feel, durability, and resale value of a granite kitchen countertop is unmatched by any other solid surface material in today’s market.

The care and maintenance of a granite surface includes the application of a petroleum based impregnating sealer into the stone once clean and dry. This can be done by the homeowner and should be applied on a yearly basis. As for daily cleaning, most household cleaners are fine. Granite’s polish is very durable and shouldn’t fade due to standard cleaning products’ acidity levels.

MARBLE

Marble is a metamorphic rock formed by pressure, movement, heat, and other factors over hundreds of thousands of years. Marble is typically less porous and more dense than travertine or limestone. However, this varies from stone to stone.

LIMESTONE

Limestone is a sedimentary rock formed strictly by pressure over time. Limestone is commonly thought of as the “softest” of industry stones, which does vary from stone to stone and is not always true.

TRAVERTINE

Travertine is a sedimentary rock also formed by pressure. Travertine is identified by the holes in the stone. They are formed near a water source allowing moisture to collect and eventually force holes through the stone during formation. Travertine is available “unfilled” or more commonly “filled & honed”. This process greatly reduces the stone’s porosity levels and increases density.

MANUFACTURED QUARTZ

Comprised of up to 93% natural quartz, one of natures strongest minerals, quartz is resistant to stains, scratches, most households chemicals and moderate heat. It never needs sealing and its hard, nonporous surface making cleaning simple. It retains the cool, tactile qualities of natural stone and aggregates ranging from fine- to coarse-grained color blends with variegated visual texture.
