Some Facts About Granite

  • Molecular structure renders granite very stable but rigid. It is an extremely inflexible material. Unlike material like Corian, for example, granite will not bend or flex in worktop thickness, therefore making it unsuitable for long span applications. If a longer worktop is required, the darker granites are recommended, as these are generally stronger.
  • Baltic Brown, Giallo Veniziano and sometimes other lighter colours, are resin treated at source to fill natural flaws and pot marks.
  • Slips (kit form) around sink and hob cutouts are fitted in certain circumstances – if tops are too long and depending upon type and size of cutout etc.
  • Granite worktops are sealed prior to dispatch and upon installation. Periodically worktops should be re-sealed to prevent damage occurring. This is especially necessary in high traffic areas.
  • Although one of the least absorbent stones, Granite can be stained by grease, wine, coffee, nicotine, fruit juices and even champagne.
  • Granite joints are finished with a small ariss to the top edge and silicone sealant is applied to prevent liquid penetration.
  • Granite is a much harder and less porous material than marble. It is much less prone to random large veining, flaw lines and pitting.
  • The strongest form or structure is a sphere, therefore the full bullnose edge is far less susceptible to damage than a squared off edge.
