Granite is a natural stone, formed under the Earth. This natural stone can be classified as an Igneous rock, meaning that over time, layers upon layers of molten lava hardened and crystallized, to form the beautiful stone pieces that we use to make your dream project.The stone is quarried from the Earth in big chunks or “slabs”. From these slabs, we then custom cut your countertops to your exact measurements. Due to the porous nature of Granite, your countertops MUST be sealed, ideally once a year. At IGS, we offer a 15-year sealer called DryTreat, so you don’t have to worry as much over the years. Granite is a very durable stone, which is why it's commonly used for countertops.These countertops require professional installation, due to the weight of the stones. Our installers are professionally trained to install your countertops to perfection, we do not recommend Do It Yourself (DIY) Installation.Set up a Free In-Home Design Consultation Today to view Granite samples in your home, in your own lighting, to ensure you love your future countertops.
