Granite is dense, versatile stone with a distinctive look that signifies quality and hints of splendor. Its unique properties make it ideal for use in kitchens, bath, flooring and wall treatments, as well as fireplace surrounds and outdoor BBQ counters. Extremely scratch resistant and durable, granite is unaffected by citric acid. It won’t harbor bacteria and it is impervious to heat. Made of a combination of natural minerals, crystals and feldspar , granite offers an array of colors and a depth that no man-made material can duplicate. Today, granite has become a popular choice among home owners because of its lustrous appearance and durability. Once installed, granite will remain intact for a long period of time without the worries of chipping, scratching, or fading.
Granite is formed by rock that has melted below the earth’s surface. Trapped underground, this molten rock cools and crystallizes, resulting in a variation of pattern and colors of speckled stone. Its natural combination of minerals will differ in amounts, resulting in a wide array of light and dark stones with different foreground and background and sometimes carry streaks of vibrant colors. Granite is found at quarries all over the world. The finished slabs and/or pre-fabricated counter tops are shipped to fabricators like Elegant Stone & Cabinets to be processed to customer’s specifications.
Typically, granite is quarried and cut into large 2cm (¾”) or 3 cm (1-1/4”) thick slabs measuring 6 x 10 feet and can weighs over 700 lbs. Because these slabs are heavy and cumbersome, machines are often required to lift them, and fabrication/installation would require much longer lead-time and costs. Rather than working with large, unmanageable slabs, Elegant Stone & Cabinets offers prefabricated granite and quartz counter top material .
These pre-fabricated counter tops come in 96”x 26” or 114”x26” standard sizes with an 1-1/2” “Bullnose” or “Square” edge profile pre-fabricated ahead of time at an off-shore facility. These pre-fabricated tops are made to fit standard kitchen 24” deep cabinets. Island/peninsula size is also available in 36”x96” size with 3-sides prefabricated edges (Bullnose or Square edge profile). Utilizing this option, Elegant Stone & Cabinets offers a faster and more cost-effective turn-around time to its customers.
Our professional fabricators can template and make fabrication adjustments of the pre-fabricated counter tops to customize an accurate fit for your counter top projects at the job-site. If any change(s) is needed by the customer at the installation point, our professional fabricators are more than ready to make any changes to accommodate the customer’s need.
