What is Granite?
By definition, granite is an igneous rock containing at least 20% quartz. Considered by some to be the world’s oldest building material, granite is formed from liquid magma, which has slowly cooled over generations. It consists primarily of quartz, mica and feldspar. Granite’s reputation as a hard, durable and tough material is well-earned. As a result, its popularity as a construction material has sky-rocketed in recent years. The colors and applications for the use of granite have also multiplied. Its beauty is matched by the value it adds in any residential or commercial setting.
How Can Granite Enhance the Look of My Project?
The variety of uses for granite has also expanded over the years. Here are some of the applications for this sought after material in today’s construction market:
- Granite Tiles. Perfect for use in the kitchen and bathroom, and throughout a home or commercial project, granite tiles can be installed as flooring, interior or exterior wall tiles, countertops, or as a backsplash, among other applications. The sleek, high-luster look can transform a standard bathroom, kitchen, hallway, or entrance foyer into a showplace. In addition to adding an elegant look to your project, the superior strength of granite is legendary. Its stability and durability against impact, heat and abrasion makes it a wise choice not only for use in the home, but also for commercial projects where traffic is high. And the color palette we offer at NSG is limited only by your imagination.
- Granite Countertops. If you follow developments in the residential building market, you are already aware that granite countertops are the number one choice among home buyers by a wide margin. In addition to the other benefits of using granite as a building material, such as durability, the installation of granite countertops adds instant value to your residential or other building project. To the homeowner, granite countertops represent the ultimate in beauty and style, and to the prospective purchaser, they represent quality and demonstrate a commitment to the best in residential living. As an additional benefit, especially in the case of the installation of granite in your bathroom or kitchen, granite is sanitary, meaning that it does not harbor bacteria.
