Granite Countertops Virginia Maryland Washington DC
Why indeed. Granite in the field is a hard stone that seems to be at the core of many mountains. It is the stone that miner’s blast and crushers crush. In the mines it usually gets crushed to fine powder so the minerals can be leached from it, in many quarries granite is crushed into gravel for use as aggregate in concrete or in road building. But we, at our stores in Fairfax VA sell cheapgranite slabs for use as countertops and vanity slabs.
It has been found that cut and polished it is a hard wearing, attractive and durable medium with which to make working surfaces. Granite is the recent-day material of choice for vanities and countertops.Granite is an exceptionally hard stone that is sliced into slabs that are half an inch thick and able of being eight-foot by four foot in size.

There is drift and grain in the granite. The polishing process brings out the respective colours and texture of the underlying mix. Sometimes these patterns are like veins or wood texture and sometimes they are a stippled mix of colors. That depends on the class and colour you prefer. The very even burnished surface displays the grain is and grain of the stone to great effect. The surfaces of a kitchen or bar countertop will look burnished and are exceptionally hard eroding.
