Granite Tiles Will Take Anything A Family Can Throw At Them

Granite tiles are so hard they'll withstand the punishement handed out by a young familyLooking for tiles that will handle the day-to-day activities of a young family? Granite tiles are your solution. Granite is one of the hardest natural stones available and the tiles made from granite are generally scratch resistant, stain resistant and water resistant. We say “resistant” since nothing is really scratch-proof, although some substances require diamond to make any real impact. Granite is one of those stones that is only damaged if badly misused and not maintained well.

Granite tiles are perfect for kitchen countertops, high traffic floors, and for tile flooring applications in commercial and industrial areas.  You can even find one-piece bathroom basins and vanity tops that have been carved from granite blocks then polished to a glass-like finish – and they survive for decades, not just years.

If you have a young family, perhaps a pet or two, and a lot of foot traffic, then granite tiles are your best natural stone tile option. Granite is popular for countertops because of that glass-like finish, hardness, and stain resistance. Once installed, granite doesn’t require a lot of maintenance – it will survive commercial grade anti-bacterial cleaners and steam cleaning.

Because granite is readily found, it is also one of the less expensive natural stone tiles available. If you are considering a tile floor, then granite is one option worth considering. There is a wide range of color types and finishes available, however, it is well worth talking to one of the tile experts at Éco Dépôt before making your final selection. We’ll help you select the right type of tile for your project ensuring your finished project meets, or even exceeds, your expectations.
