The advantages of granite are:

  • The presence of a huge range of colors, thanks to this you can create combined textures.
  • Granite has the ability to mirror polish, regardless of the hardness of this rock.
  • The first signs of corrosion in granite begin to appear only after 500 years. This stone is often called “immortal”. The granite facade does not require repair or reconstruction even after long-term use.
  • Strength — the stone has the highest compression and abrasion resistance. It is a very dense material with a compressive strength twice that of marble.
  • Granite is a moisture resistant material, which makes it excellent for building facades, plinths and steps.
