Granite Countertops & Slabs For Sale
Granite, quarried from the mountains of Brazil, Italy, Spain, India and dozens of other countries around the world, is one of the most popular natural stones on the market.
Strictly speaking, granite is an igneous rock with between 20% and 60% quartz by volume. Available in a striking array of colors, granite’s durability and longevity make it ideal for kitchen countertops and other heavily used surfaces, including tabletops and floors.
While some synthetic surfaces scratch easily and melt under hot cookware, granite resists heat. Granite is also one of the most bacteria-resistant kitchen surfaces, and it is not affected by citric acid, coffee, tea, alcohol or wine.
It is also nearly impossible to scratch, and with proper cleaning, will not stain under normal use. Because of its exceptional strength, granite is well suited for exterior applications such as cladding, paving and curbing.
