Testimonial

Building a home comes with enormous stresses both emotional and financial. It was Scott's wish to have granite bench tops in our kitchen. I was not convinced that the investment would make a difference to my life, so I did resist the temptation to inspect the granite available for sometime.

On my first visit to The Marble and Granite Fitters' showroom, I was suitably awestruck by the magnitude of the slabs, the variety of colour, the sheer beauty of this natural product that I now have granite bench tops in my kitchen, bathrooms, bar and even my laundry!

Ivan and Jo were patient beyond the call of duty, when it came to me making a final decision.

I love the feel of the stone, there is little to no maintenance and it looks as good today as it did the day it was installed.

Granite has made a difference to my life.

About Granite

Granite’s rich colours, stiffness and density make it an ideal choice for kitchen, vanities, reception, counter, bar tops, staircases, as well as exterior applications for example, fountains. Many stylish patterns and colours make granite the most versatile and trendy of all stones.

It is also a very low-maintenance stone. Granite is composed of quartz, feldspars, micas and other minerals. These minerals contribute to the colour and texture of the granite stones. Granites get their wonderful variety of colours and patterns from minerals that are melted into the liquid mass as it is formed. Granite is the second hardest stone next to diamonds.

Granite has been the choice of architects, engineers, designers, builders and homeowners as it is one of the oldest and most durable of building materials. It has long been recognised as the premium countertop material for kitchens and bathrooms and other interior and exterior surfaces. Granite can maintain its beauty and lustre indefinitely and next to diamonds, is the hardest of all natural stones.
