Granite in the World

 

One of the most widely used materials for interiors is Granite for construction, Rough Blocks Granite, Mason, Kitledge, Milford, and Chelmsford to name a few. You can find granite in countertops, and floor tiles. There is a chance that someone, or you yourself, has something in the home made of granite.

 

Counter Tops: As mentioned, many people all over the world are now using granite as a layer for their counter tops, such as in their bathrooms, kitchens, and even mantelpieces. The type of granite that is usually used for this type of building is called Biotite-granite and some of the Biotite-granite types include quartz and even plagioclase.

 

Of course, when it goes into the construction of counter tops in homes and buildings the granite is usually polished, which is the method of cleaning and polishing it that gives it the shiny and modern look for homes and buildings. In addition, biotite granite can come in a variety of colors, which is also yet another reason why individuals choose to use this for decoration in their homes. This type of granite can come in such colors as pink, black, grey, and even white.

 

Monuments: Aside from granite counter tops, granite has many more uses and can even be used when producing statues and monuments. When it comes to monuments of this type, such as the ones that are erected in memory of an infamous figure or event, they have been typically made of marble in the past. However, in more recent times granite stone has been used in conjunction with marble or even by itself as a stand-alone monument. Statues, cemetery memorials and monuments, and even headstones can all be made out of granite, and even produced or polished to the buyer’s satisfaction.

 

Benefits of Building with Granite: There are plenty of reasons that one may want to use granite as a material when building their new home or even remodeling their current one. First, granite is considered to be a versatile stone, which means that it can be produced and finished in many different polishes, looks, and feels. Second, granite is very scratch-resistant, which is perhaps one of the other reasons that people choose this type of building material for their counter tops.

 

Counter tops are not the only piece of furniture that is often chosen to be built with granite, though. Foyer centerpieces, such as those used for the tiles of the floor, are sometimes built with granite because it can greatly withstand the foot-traffic without much damage to the surface. Garage floors are even sometimes laced with granite for the hardness factor. All in all, granite is definitely one of the more high-quality building materials.
