Granite Countertops and Slabs
Granite is a dense, durable stone used in most kitchens and baths. It is resistant to scratching, but it is not a “scratch-proof” product. Each piece of granite varies in denseness and scratch resistance. It is quarried all over the globe, but most granite imported into the U.S. comes from India, Brazil, China, or Italy. Although granite is resistant to staining, it is required to seal granite as needed. In kitchen applications, granite is also resistant to heat. Hot pots and pans are never an issue for this product. With many colors and styles to choose from, granite is the most commonly used stone for a countertop application.
