Useful Information and Frequently Asked Questions

Granite

This consists largely of magmatic rocks which were formed by the cooling of magma deep in the earth’s crust.The shine on granite is brought about by polishing the surface with varying grades of abrasive, leaving it easy to clean and maintain. It is renowned for it’s technical qualities and is without doubt a versatile material that is ideal for use almost anywhere in or around the house.

Marble

This contains both metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. It is slightly softer than granite and is therefore more suited in an environment where stresses from cooking etc are not endured. The softer look of marble is therefore better suited to a bathroom or cloakroom.

Composite

These ranges from soft natural through to bright and modern. Colours to suit all tastes. It is manufactured by mixing natural stone (quartz/ granite) with binding material (synthetic resin), pigments and additives in a minimal percentage. Composite is easy to clean, resistant to acids and less porous than natural stone.
