FAQ

Frequently asked questions on granite stones.


Granite is an igneous rock. OK, what in the world does that mean? This is just a fancy way of saying that at one time during its creation, it was melted like volcanic lava.  But, unlike lava, this melted rock never really reached the surface, but instead remained trapped inside the earth, where it slowly cooled off and crystallized (pretty cool if you ask me).  The end result is simply a thing of beauty: a uniform, speckled stone with different patterns and all sorts of color schemes.
 
Granites are excavated from the 4 corners of the world and cut into slabs. At Granite Perfection, it is these same slabs that we craft and process into the final product before installing them in your kitchen, bathroom, or wherever it is that you are looking to get granite countertops.

Granite has a beauty to it so captivating that its presence alone gives a sense of luxury and majesty. It is functional and extremely durable, making granite ideal for kitchen countertops, kitchen islands, dining tables, and so on.

As if designed by the Great Designer himself, even the finest synthetics can't match granite's natural range of colors, its versatility and durability.

Both granite & marble are rocks quarried from the earth, they're different in substance.

Without boring you with details that will take you back in memory lane to your high school days of physics and chemistry, marble is more delicate and softer than granite. This is the reason why if you want to get marble, it is best to get it for your bathroom and other low-traffic areas. In contrast, high-traffic areas like your kitchen will typically have granite countertops.

Onyx, limestone, and travertine are all forms of marble.

Daily kitchen usage pose no thread at all to granite and it can take a hot pot without getting damaged. This makes granite an ideal choice for countertops in the kitchen. In short:

  1. Granite is durable.
  2. Granite is highly resistant to staining, scratching, and cracking (though these things are possible).
  3. Granite is not generally affected by heat.

Yes. Yes, we do.

Maybe. Maybe not. Due to the limitation of slab size, seams on a granite countertop may be necessary and sometimes unavoidable. An average granite slabs is about 110" x 66". If your countertop needs to be longer or wider or depending of your layout, a seam may be necessary. We try to limit the visibility of seams by placing them near sinks or cook tops and by blending the seams in a way that is harder to spot.

For the average size home, you'll typically get your new kitchen granite countertops fabricated and installed within 1 week. Our granite installation process is simple and hassle free.

Yes, but you are essentially adding a "middle man." Adding a middle man will just add to your cost. However if you insist for whatever reason, or if you already have the granite slabs, then we will be more than happy to fabricate the granite and install it for you.
