Granite and Marble Slabs are Natural Beauties

Granite and marble slabs in the GTA are quite naturally beautiful. Both stones are quarried from the earth in huge slabs. Granite is an igneous rock that is mainly comprised of quartz, mica and feldspar. It has gained widespread use as a construction stone due to its hardness (second only to diamond) and its toughness. Granite use has a dramatic history and can be seen in some of the most amazing buildings such as the Red Pyramid of Egypt (c.26th century BC). The Brihadeeswarar Temple built in India in 1010 AD was the world's first temple built entirely of granite.
Marble is a metamorphic rock formed through the transformation of limestone.  As the favourite building material for ancient Greek and Roman sculptors and architects, marble shows up in classical masterpieces such as the Greek Parthenon in Athens (447 BC). White marble has been a prized medium for sculptures since ancient times due to its softness which makes it easier to carve and more resistant to shattering.  While often thought of as more traditional and old world, marble comes in a dizzying symphony of colours, many of which have a more contemporary feel.
Both granite and marble slabs are distinctively stunning and works of art on their own. When used in interior décor, they provide a dramatic focal point that will be admired.

Protect Your Investment in Granite and Marble Slabs

It is advised to protect your granite and marble slabs with a sealant upon installation and then reseal every 2-3 years.  A sealant will create an invisible layer over the surface which will add a layer of protection.
Daily maintenance is simple and it is recommended that you simply wipe the surface down using a mild soap and water and a non-abrasive cloth. Stay away from harsh chemicals or cleaners.  Rather than using common commercial cleaners like Windex, an easy rule-of-thumb is to only use on your marble and granite what you would use on your hands. There are stone-friendly sealants and cleaning products specifically designed for natural stone easily available on the market. As marble is more porous, more attention must be paid to cleaning up spills right away and keeping any acidic substances or food products well away from its surface. When acid in any form comes into contact with a polished marble surface it causes a chemical reaction which removes or dulls the polish.

Granite and Marble Slabs GTA are Rock-Solid

Both granite and marble slabs are durable choices for home design. Granite is highly resistant to scratching, cracking and staining and is so hard that it will dull your knife blade if you use the countertop as a cutting surface. Granite will retain its value and since it does not depreciate, it will continue to look shiny and glisteningly new and add to the resale value of your home.
Marble is an elegant and timeless choice and like granite, will last for decades. Marble will change appearance and wear over time but most marble-lovers appreciate the character and variation that marble develops with use.
Granite and marble slabs of the GTA are naturally beautiful and a rock-solid investment. They are a prestigious choice for your interior design finishes and promise years of fine use without losing their value.
