Crystallized under tremendous pressure deep underground, granite is a naturally formed stone composed mainly of quartz and feldspars that is mined from quarries around the world. Every granite countertop can be considered a limited edition because there is a finite supply of granite in any given quarry.
Granite is a tangled labyrinth full of Mother Nature’s unique intricacies. The complex swirls and veining in our exotics series can add a great deal of character to any countertop. Solid surface and quartz materials lack the non-uniform flow of sophisticated patterns and highly detailed grain structures.
Granite is hard and highly scratch resistant. Due to its composition of quartz and feldspars (7 and 6 on the Hardness Scale, respectively), it is more durable than softer stones such as marble or travertine and man-made materials such as acrylics, polyesters, or laminates. The glossy finish will endure years of use in even the busiest kitchens without being refinished.
Granite may be more affordable than you think. Our stocked program not only keeps turnaround times short but allows us to charge for only the material actually used to produce your countertop. This means you won’t end up spending money on material that is not part of your design.
Naturally resistant to both acids and alkalis, granite will not etch from common foods, beverages, or household cleaners like other types of stones. And, with the industry’s first and only comprehensive Residential Limited Lifetime Warranty, your Artisan™ countertop will be protected, promoting a clean, safe, and worry-free kitchen.
Artisan Stone Collection granite is the first and only granite covered by a comprehensive limited lifetime warranty for residential applications backed by the Artisan Group members’ commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.
