Granite is a naturally occurring stone, quarried in the US and many parts of the world. It is a crystalline rock that is much harder than many other natural stones like marble. Granite rock is made up of many interlocking mineral crystals, such as quartz and feldspar and others. It is these mineral crystals that make every piece of granite one of a kind.
This incredibly robust and hardy material is truly a wonder of nature. Granite is versatile and can be used in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas of a home as well. Today, most homeowners, kitchen designers, and architects prefer granite over many other countertop materials. This natural stone comes in a range of colors and patterns and has a dimensional quality when the surfaces are polished to a luminous sheen.
At Stone Wizards, we know from experience that homeowners want countertops that are resilient, practical, easy to maintain, and long-lasting. Granite is undeniably a classic material, and most homeowners opt for a granite kitchen countertop in Toronto over materials like tile, stainless steel, and marble for their countertops.
