Granite Tiles

Granites Tiles are basically indestructable

Granite floor tile is basically indestructible if you choose the right variety… It can be used in any room with no concern, including an entry way or outdoor patio.

Unlike marble, limestone and travertine, granite tile does not etch the same way and rarely is staining a problem. There is basically an endless array of patterns and magnificent colors for you to choose from.

Like most floor tile, granite has maintenance requirements. Depending on the degree of use and wear, polished granite may require periodic re-polishing just like any polished stone floor will.

To help reduce the chance of staining, some types of granite tiles may need to be sealed.

Granite is formed from liquid magma pushed up toward the earth’s surface to form a substance approaching the hardness and durability of diamond. Granite is an igneous rock; its chemical composition is similar to that of lava. However, granite owes its hardness and density to the fact that it has been solidified deep within the earth, under extreme pressure.

Over the eons, seismic activity has changed the crust of the planet, forcing veins of granite to the surface. Granite tiles are renowned for their strength and depth of colour.
