An ancient rock formed from liquid, hot magma.
Granite is a great choice for interior and exterior; excellent for countertops, flooring, walls, etc., granite is a beautiful and versatile choice.
Things to consider when selecting your granite:
- Obvious pitting, veining, fissures, and occlusions are naturally occurring to granite and are not considered “defects.”
- Consider the slab size and direction of movement of the granite when selecting for your project.
- Consider end-use. Not all granites are suitable for exterior uses.
- Granite prices rank from basic to exotic. Higher priced stones tend to come from more rare minerals, smaller boulders, and quarried in smaller quantities.
Granite is naturally occurring hard, crystalline, igneous rock primarily made of quartz, feldspar, and mica. On the MOHs hardness scale it rates between 6 and 7. Aesthetically, granite is one of the finest materials available and has many options in color and patterns. Granite has an illustrious history of being used as one of the best building materials not only due to the quality of the stone, but also for its rich colors and patterns. The only natural material harder is diamond. Granite is durable; it is highly resistant to heat, scratches, and stains. Granite does not harbor bacteria. Some might say a downfall to granite is the need to reseal it. With MMG this is not a problem since we have a sealer available which has a lifetime guarantee.
Advantages: Beautiful, strong, durable, stain resistant, heat resistant, wide array of colors and patterns.
Awareness: May need to be re-sealed annually if MMG's lifetime guaranteed sealer is not used prior to installation; exterior options are limited.
