Granite is widely considered to be one of the most durable natural stones because of its creation process. It takes thousands and thousands of years of extreme pressure for granite to reach its final state, making it incredibly dense. The strength of granite is said to rival that of diamonds, which are actually used to cut the stone into slabs at quarries.
Granite has become increasingly popular and besides its natural beauty, granite has several obvious benefits to homeowners.
Granite is used in buildings, bridges, paving, monuments, and many other exterior projects. Indoors, polished and even honed granite slabs and granite tiles are used for countertops, tile floors, stair treads and many other design elements. Granite is a prestige material, used in projects to produce impressions of elegance, simplicity and quality.
