Granite is one of the world's most ideal building materials for many reasons and is suitable for a multitude of uses in both residential and commercial buildings. This natural stone is one of the hardest substances in the world, and has come to be trusted as an extremely long-lasting and durable surface. Granite is a volcanic rock formed over the ages with great pressure and heat, characterized by a visibly crystalline appearance which adds beauty to its other natural attributes. Granite is extracted from quarries around the world. The tiles and slabs are normally cut to specification and polished on one side, and are characterized by their hard, dense, unyielding, and very smooth surfaces.


Both granite tiles and granite slabs serve many uses from household applications to light commercial and even industrial construction projects. Because granite products are extremely well-suited to heavy foot traffic, they are frequently used in flooring projects. For a strong and decorative flooring material, granite flooring is a great option. Granite resists impact and abrasion, and the random patterns in each granite tile or granite slab make for unique decorating, and will enhance a project with an individual appeal. Granite can also add a significant structural benefit, as well as aesthetic value, to any residential, office, or industrial building, and is therefore often used in foundations, walls, countertops as well as floors.
