Renowned for its strength, granite is an extremely hard natural stone resistant to scratches. This makes it an excellent, sustainable choice for kitchen countertops, kitchen islands, stone pavers, and bathroom vanities. It’s a wonderful, durable, strong material for complex structural home projects as well. Granite comes in many colors and with a variety of patterns, including veining, specks, and swirls. There are environmentally friendly granite options available at every price point.
