A recent survey shows that more than 50% of people interested in upgrading their kitchen with granite counter tops tend to choose the company that offers the lowest price.

No questions about other issues like quality or extra charges, fees and taxes. The company that has the lowest price per square foot is chosen by six out of ten people.

 

In most of the blogs or questions about granite over the world wide web (www) people either advertise or write a complain about a certain granite company. Rarely a blog is written about how people are very pleased with the services that they paid for. That happens because of poor research and not enough information and because people don't ask enough questions. 

Before getting new counter tops, get your facts right and ask as many questions as you can think of. Affordable doesn't need to be the cheapest on the market.

In this tough economy everybody tries to cut back on expenses and people don't think anymore about quality and good service. It would be great to have both quality and low prices but that doesn't exist yet.

Few years ago, granite was so expensive that not everybody could afford it. These days almost anybody can get, at least their vanity top redone. But instead of getting the best quality for your money, you will get a cheap job done by someone that focuses only on making money.

If you want a good price and good services do your home work.  Don't pick the price, pick the company.

Fusion Marble & Granite promises to meet your expectations and desires.

Granite Facts

Posted by fusiongranite on July 6, 2009 at 1:13 AM Comments comments (1)

Granite is considered the finest stone for architectural purposes because it takes a high polish and maintains it's luster and life indefinitely. Granite's beauty comes from a quiet, solid strength - an internal radiance. It will span generations and will stand for centuries. Granite is a prestigious choice for kitchen counter tops and will increase the property's perceived value.



 

What is granite?


 

Granite is a tough, durable rock composed primarily of three different minerals.These minerals are easy to see due to their different colors. The white mineral grains found in granite are feldspar. It is the most abundant mineral found in granite. The light gray, glass-like grains are quartz, and the black, flake-like grains are biotite or black mica.

 


Granite and marble. How are they different?


 

Marble is simply limestone that has been compressed and/or heated deep within the earth's crust. Unlike granite, marble was never molten rock, but it may have been heated and squeezed enough for the limestone grains to bend and flow. Marble is also made up of only one mineral -- calcite -- a relatively soft mineral with a hardness of "3". Calcite is a common mineral -- all limestones and nearly all seashells are made of it, but it does not occur in granite. Because marble is made entirely of calcite, it is much softer than granite.
