What is Granite?
Granite is one of the most durable and strong building stones. It has a very hard surface, making it very difficult to chip, scratch or wear. This makes it ideal for use in high traffic areas, for it will last a lifetime. Granite is also colorfast and stain resistant.
Granite is a natural rock that is formed by the crystallization of magma within the earth’s crust. It is composed of three main minerals, known as mica, feldspar and quartz. Granite is recognized for its strength, hardness and durability, making it perfect for use as pavers.
Many homeowners choose to install granite pavers in their driveways, because of their intense strength. This variety of pavers can support the weight of multiple vehicles for decades without cracking. At the same time, granite will also increase the value of your home due to its beauty.
Granite pavers are extremely durable, making them perfect for use in high traffic areas. They can be used for walkways, courtyards, patios and the interior of homes and commercial buildings. They are guaranteed to last a lifetime, with minimal repairs necessary. This is why they are often used in the construction of important buildings that are meant to last for decades or longer.
