FAQs

What finishes are available?

Granite is most commonly available in two options: flammed granite and polished granite. The former has been exfoliated with a heat gun to create a textured finish, whilst the latter has been polished to create a shiny surface.

What stone should I use for indoor projects?

If you want to use interior paving in your home, we suggest using polished granite. This is because the surface is smoother and more refined, making it the perfect choice for flooring and even as a cladding for feature walls! 

Will my granite become stained?

One of the hardest stones on the market, granite has high levels of resistance to abrasions and scratches, and is also less susceptible to permanent staining that many other stones.
