Granite is an igneous rock that is the result of hundreds of millions of years of creation. Nature has given us this exceptional product with its multitude of colours and we are forever learning how to use and enjoy it. It is among the hardest of natural stones and is used for many applications including structural works due to its high compressive strength and durability.

Granite is composed of feldspars, mica and other minerals and the combination of all these and the heat of the forming earth on various continents of this planet has, contributed to the many colours and textures of granite. Granites rich colours and density make it an ideal stone for many applications. Typically you will find granite used for flooring, countertops, vanities, furniture and of course as exterior cladding. Its superior strength and permanence of finish in extreme environments make it one of the most sought after building ‘finishing’ products.
