What is Granite?
Granite is formed from the natural process of molten lava flowing over and coming into contact with rocks in the area. This starts the process of amalgamation. Amalgamation then forms an igneous rock which is composed of quartz, mica, and feldspar. Patterns and colors seen in granite countertops or granite slabs come from the cool down process. This slow process creates the uniquely beautiful and individual pieces we get to enjoy.
Granite Countertops can be protected by sealers. The experts at Premier Granite highly recommend protecting your investment with a high-quality sealer. We offer a sealer with a 25-year warranty against staining for decades to come.
