available in a very wide range of colours and patterns. You can select a
neutral tone like white, cream, grey, or beige for a classic look. Dark colours
like chocolate brown or black create a more dramatic appearance. Granite is
also available in many vivid or subtle colours, from light orange to rich
burgundy, from deep green to sky blue. Multicoloured granite is even available.

the right slab to match your décor. In fact, many people begin decorating by

stands up to almost anything you can think of. It's heat resistant, which makes

counter surface as a cutting board if you like. Granite is one of the toughest
surfaces available, and it scores an average of 6.5 on the Mohs scale of

wiped up with a damp cloth, and cleaning your countertops requires only a mild
soap with balanced PH. Granite has to be sealed after installation, and
resealed on an annual basis, but this is a simple process.

will never go out of style. Stone design elements are associated with luxury
buildings throughout history, and stone creates an atmosphere of elegance and
timelessness that no other material can match.

granite construction that stands the test of time. Granite countertops will
last the lifetime of your home and beyond. Stone endures.

chemicals in the same way that man-made materials do. And because it's such a
smooth surface, it doesn't harbour bacteria or allergens, making it a healthy
choice for your family.
