Granite is an excellent natural material ideal for countertops, floors, wall claddings, and other high-traffic areas in residential and commercial spaces. It is a timeless beauty that no man-made surface can match. The natural appeal of stone adds warmth, elegance, and richness to any room. Slabs are available in a wide array of colors and textures, from light to dark, with swirls, accents, or fluid tones. This makes each piece of slab one of a kind. The advantages of installing granite, however, goes beyond aesthetics. A highly-durable natural stone, granite is hard enough to resist abrasion, strong enough to bear significant weight, and inert enough to resist weathering. Some synthetic surfaces scratch easily. Granite, on the other hand, surpasses the hardness of utensils, including knife blades, that are used on it. It will resist scratches from ordinary kitchen preparations. Since it is naturally formed through the constant pressure deep within earth, granite can withstand the heat of hot pots and pans without absorbing damage. Thus, it is much safer to use than its synthetic counterparts with resin and polyester because it does not melt, warp, or discolor when subjected to high temperature. Ultimately, granite strikes the perfect balance between elegance and performance.
