June 05, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 199

The demand and supply of granite worktops has tremendously increased providing a complete new perspective for interior decoration. It is necessary that whatever you are purchasing for your interiors it should not be under the effect of "herd behaviour". Also you should know about it so that you can appreciate its true value.

This is the reason that in a quick glance I am going to present some interesting information on granite stone in the form of frequently asked questions for your knowledge:

1. Is granite a natural stone?

Yes, granite is a natural stone that is quarried from all over the world. Granite basically falls into the category of intrusive igneous rocks that is manufactured from hot molten lava under the layer of metamorphic rocks.

2. What are the various categories?

There are several categories in natural stones but four of them are most prominent that are geologically proven to be a part of "rock cycle'. These are:

a. Sedimentary rocks

b. Metamorphic rocks

c. Igneous (intrusive) rocks

d. Igneous (extrusive) rocks

All these rocks have their own chemical composition. Moreover these rocks are given the name on the basis of their occurrence.

3. Are there any other natural rocks besides granite that can be used as worktops?

Yes there are several options but most commonly used are marble, quartz and of course granite. These three names are most trusted one that frequently preferred by home owners. However as an alternative to granite you can also consider synthetic worktops for your interiors like corian and silestone.

4. What is the price range of granite countertops?

Granite countertops are available in wide range not only in terms of colours as well as in price. Generally it ranges from 45 pounds per square foot and goes up to 300 pounds per square foot but this price depends on several factors like what shade you are choosing, edge profiling, transportation and installation charges etc.

If you are looking for some cheap options in granite then either visit granite warehouses or order prefabricated granite kitchen tops. On the other hand quartz is the cheapest option but if you are thinking of marble then I must remind you that its cost is equivalent to granite stone.

These are some of the basics on granite as a natural stone that every customer should know before purchasing them. If you need information then you can browse geological blogs or visit your nearest dealer.

There is no stone as sturdy and as elegant as granite. That's the reason it is used in 80% of construction areas and kitchen interiors. If you wish to buy or get more knowledge about granite and granite worktops, visit our website here
