Versatile Granite for Kitchens, Baths and More
Granite is one of the most popular materials used in home and commercial construction, and for good reason. It’s a beautiful, durable, and long-lasting natural stone material that is ideal for countertops, floors, walls, and other surfaces. It’s also available in various colors, and in several edge styles, meaning it can fit any aesthetic.
At Moreno Granite & Marble, we offer professional installation of high-quality granite. Our experienced team of installers is trained in the best practices and techniques for installing it in homes and businesses. We use the latest tools and equipment to ensure a perfect fit, as well as proper adhesion and sealing.
The Perfect Countertop Material
Granite is an ideal choice for countertops because it is extremely durable, attractive, and timeless. It’s a natural stone, making it the perfect material for countertops that need to stand up to daily wear and tear. Granite countertops are highly resistant to heat, withstanding temperatures up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit without damage, and also scratches, so they won’t be ruined by hot pans or sharp knives.
The natural patterns and colors of the stone give kitchens an elegant and luxurious look, and its ability to remain cool to the touch makes it perfect for areas near the stove. It’s also relatively easy to maintain and is resistant to staining. However, we recommend sealing your countertops for sanitation and food safety purposes and also using a nonabrasive cleaner to maintain the longevity of the seal.
In addition to its ability to handle weight and wear, granite can also be used for window sills, fireplaces, shower surrounds, and monuments. For home or business owners looking for a durable, attractive, and low-maintenance countertop material, this is a perfect choice.

The Geology of Granite
Granite is created naturally as magma slowly crystalizes underground. It is the most abundant igneous rock that is most prevalent at Earth’s surface. Granite mostly consists of feldspar and quartz. It is a proven, long-lasting element of interior design, measuring 6 to 7 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, a scientific measurement of a material’s resistance to scratching on a scale of 1 to 10.
