Can I put a hot pan on my granite counter top?
(top)

Yes you can, although using a trivet or hot pad is recommended. Granite is made under extreme heat and pressure. It will not be affected by residual heat from your frying pans, or baking sheets. Even a lit flame placed under a granite slab will not leave any scorch marks.

How do I clean my granite counter top?
(top)

A mild phosphate-free soap and warm water followed by a rinse and drying with cotton flannel, or a chamois will work just fine. No abrasive cleaners, or heavy ammonia sprays. Your granite counter top has had a high gloss sealant put on it there is no need to do any extra polishing.

I hear granite stains easily. Is that true?
(top)

No in general granite does not stain easily. All stones are capable of staining but granite has very little porosity, and we seal our counter tops to avoid accidental staining. If proper care, and cleaning guidelines are followed your granite's shine will last for decades.

TBD

Whats the difference between granite and marble?
(top)

Granite is a dense material created deep inside the earth's core. Marble is formed from sediments from under the seabed. Both turn to stone after millions of years but the mineral make up of the stones is different. The stones therefore react differently to various chemicals and cleaners, as well as wear and tear. Granite is better suited for counter tops while marble may be better suited for fireplace enclosures.

Where else can I use granite and marble?
(top)

Just about everywhere your imagination can take you. Imagine our beautiful stones in your kitchen counters, bathroom vanity, floors, patios, pool decks, even custom furniture. We've been working with these stones for 30 years and we've found a lot of applications for them.

Will all of my countertops match?
(top)

Granite is a product of nature therefore no two slabs will be identical. However, colors and patterns can be brought together to match your design. Not only will it give your kitchen or bathroom a stunning appeal, but it will truly be a one of a kind design.

Will my granite crack?
(top)

Granite will not crack under normal regular use. Granite is a very durable material, and is only susceptible to cracking during shipping, and installation.
