Granite is an Igneous rock formed over millions of years, magma (or molten rock) is compressed whilst slowly cooling from deep within the Earth’s crust, forming the hard wearing, beautiful material we use today.
Sourced from around the world through both our Italian and UK based suppliers, we hold probably the largest stock of natural material in the Midlands. Our wide choice of natural materials is available to view at our factory showroom Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm and Saturday mornings from 9am-12:30pm.
Granite is a naturally beautiful, hard wearing and easy to maintain work surface, which makes the ultimate statement in kitchen design and lifestyle.
Choosing our granite was great from start to finish.
We thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the barn to see the beautiful slabs of stone. The office folk were very helpful and the guys who came out to template and fix the granite were marvellous. And last but not least, the granite is absolutely stunning. Thank you Just Granite!!
Granite is one of the hardest substances found on earth
Benefits of Granite Work Tops
1. Resists Chips and Scratches
One of the best reasons to choose granite countertops for your kitchen is that the material is durable under normal use. Granite is the second hardest material in the world, just behind diamonds. However, you should always use a cutting board for dicing, chopping and slicing foods since sharp knives and cleavers may damage the granite. If granite countertops are installed properly, they will last for decades.
2. Heat Resistant
Another benefit to granite countertops is their heat resistance. Granite is naturally formed by pressure and heat which means that granite countertops resist heat well. You can even put a hot pot or pan on the surface of your granite countertops without scorching it, though we recommend using pot holders.
3. Stain Resistant
In addition to heat resistance, granite countertops are stain resistant with a properly applied sealant. However, we seal all our granite worktops before they leave the factory. Keep in mind that any liquid and food spills should still be removed immediately with water and a mild detergent (such as a natural cleaner or a small amount of soap).
Each slab of granite is unique, so you can be sure that no one will have the same countertops as you do. If you want a one of a kind, natural surface in your kitchen, call Just Granite to get started today!
Granite is a popular choice and the natural pattern of sealed granite countertops will set your kitchen above and beyond!
