Granite is a great choice for kitchen and bathroom countertops in the
United States, and with good reason! Granite is strong, durable, heat
resistant, scratch resistant, easy to clean, and beautiful.
Granite is found in many patterns and colors, you're sure to find
something that you'll like and that will work well with your space.
Classic Marble & Stone offers a wide variety of granite colors from
Italy, Brazil and India among other places. Granite color selection is easy with our showroom and indoor slab warehouse.
Polished, Honed, or Leathered?
Classic Marble & Stone offers several finishes for your natural stone surfaces. Polishing, honing, and leathering are the most popular finishes.
Polishing is a very durable finish that creates a bright, reflective shine. The polishing process closes the pores of your stone which makes it more stain resistant. Etching can still occur with polished marble, but it can be re-polished back to that bright shine.
Honing is a process created with abrasives that will leave a smooth, satin-like, matte finish to your stone.
Leathering is a textured finish similar to honing. The leathering process applies a slight shine to your stone and leaves a more natural surface to your granite or marble.
Sealants are an impregnator that work to fill the pores of your natural stone and make it much less likely to stain. Granite and Marble should be resealed annually. Soapstone uses Food Grade Mineral Oil or Stone Enhancer to darken the finish, no sealant is required.
Like all natural stone counter tops and surfaces, each stone slab has slightly different characteristics. Classic Marble & Stone welcomes you to our showroom to select the perfect natural stone slab with the characteristics that you'll love! Our stone inventory is stored indoors where you'll be comfortable year round browsing our selection!
