Granite Tiles

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.

Granite Finishes

Leathered Granite:

Leathering is the process of texturing the granite’s smooth surface, leaving it less glossy and “non-slip”
It is easy to clean and maintain, as well as pleasing to the touch – a perfect balance between style and practicality

Flamed Granite:

A flamed finish is produced when an intense flame is fired at the stone, causing the surface to burst and become rough. This finish is used primarily for exterior applications where slip-resistance is extremely important. This finish cannot be applied to all stones, however most granites can be flamed.

Honed Granite:

This finish is created by buffing the stone to slightly less than the highest level. The result is a smooth but natural appearance. A honed finish refers to any level that is less than polished and therefore encompasses many levels of natural finish.

Polished Granite:

A polished finish is created when a stone surface reaches its most refined stage. It is buffed to the highest level possible and the results are either a high shine or the actual highest level of shine that can be achieved naturally. This finish gives the stone a very elegant and rich look, providing it with a pinnacle depth of colour.
