• Why Choose Granite?

    In a word, beauty. Each quarry has a unique palette of colours, making your selection distinctive.

    Granite has been used since ancient times as it is a very durable building material. On Mohs scale of hardness where 1 is talc and 10 is diamond, granite is rated 8/10. Granite is a lasting investment. Rather than being formed in the silent depths of bodies of water from bodies of beings, granite is born in the fiery centre of molten mantle deep within the Earth.

    Granite is formed at temperatures around 760°C. From its molten origins, it cools and crystallises and its structure becomes granular. This intense heat creates a very hard and durable stone. As a result this stone is able to withstand heat from hot cookware or liquid better than its water-born cousins from the marble family.

    The Inca walls of Cusco are enormous granite blocks that fit together so precisely that there was no need for mortar to hold them together. These walls have withstood the force of numerous earthquakes that destroyed a great deal of the Spanish architecture that was built on top of them.

  • Granite Pavers Maintenance Tips

    Granite pavers can be cleaned with warm water and mild detergent without putting in much effort; however, the size of the area and the amount of foot traffic has to be taken into consideration as well.

    If you want to clean a small area with not much foot traffic, then warm water with mild detergent can be used for cleaning, but a huge area that withstands heavy foot traffic such as a shopping mall will require the expertise and resources of a cleaning company.

    For large areas, ride on cleaning machine or floor scrubbers can be used. Generally speaking, cleaning of granite pavers in large area should be carried out once every month, but the cleaning frequency should be determined by considering dust accumulation, traffic volume etc.

    Things to remember for granite pavers cleaning:

    • Never use acid unless you are sure how the stone will react to it.
    • Do not allow soiling to sit on the surface for a long time, especially if the area is exposed to sunlight, as the stain will become permanent and/or difficult to remove.
    • Be very careful with the grout or joint material while cleaning.
    • Refrain from using abrasive products as scratching can spoil the surface.
