Granite Worktops

In this page we could explain that granite is a naturally occuring crystaline igneous mineral rock, give you latin names, and principle characteristics, telling you how many millions of years it is old, and how and where it is formed. Granite Care will no longer repeat all this useless information. Signature Surfaces will tell you in plain speaking English.

Natural Granite is quarried out of the ground all over the world. They quarry it by either drilling or cutting it out of a rock face, lift it to ground level, transport it to a factory and slice it up like a loaf of bread, but long ways. They then polish one face side of every sheet. The sheets are shipped to fabricators such as us, and from these we fabricate and produce Granite Worktops.

Granite Worktops are Brilliant. They are very hard and very shiny. They will last and last, and are now not very expensive. You can order your granite worktops in a variety of naturally occuring colours. Once a customer has Granite Kitchen Worktops, they will never go back to a Laminate Worktop.
