What is Granite?

Granite is a natural stone formed deep within the earth’s crust. Composed primarily of quartz, feldspar, and mica, granite is renowned for its unique patterns, durability, and resistance to heat and scratches.

Protecting Your Granite Surfaces

Proper Sealing
Sealing your granite countertops is crucial for longevity. Our robust 15-year sealer is applied at installation and helps preserve your granite’s natural beauty. For older installations, a resealing every 6-12 months is advisable.

Daily Cleaning
Daily care is simple with granite-specific cleaners and a soft cloth. Steer clear of harsh chemicals and abrasive materials to keep your granite in pristine condition. For a streak-free shine, we recommend using non-soap cleansers. 

Preventing Stains
While granite is highly stain resistant, it’s best to clean spills quickly, especially from substances like oil and ink. Using coasters can help prevent stain marks!
