Granite is considered an all-purpose favorite that can mimic the pristine quality of marble but is denser and harder. Granite tile flooring is a natural material that does not require harsh chemicals during the manufacturing process. Like any other natural stone, granite tiles vary in thickness, water absorption, grain, finish, and pricing. Denver Carpet & Flooring offers a wide range of high-quality granite flooring brands at guaranteed low prices from leading manufacturers. Visit our store or contact us to discuss your flooring needs.
Granite is a quartz-based stone that is formed over millions of years through the cooling and solidification of magma or lava. When properly sealed, granite is highly resistant to scratching, heat, moisture, acids, and stains. Granite flooring adapts to all climates. It does not crack or easily damage in freeze-thaw cycles, making it a heavy-duty material for indoor and outdoor spaces. Granite tile flooring is regularly used for residential and commercial purposes.
Granite tile flooring enhances the warmer tones throughout your home. Granite is easily identified by its small flecks and salt-and-pepper patterns but comes in a large assortment of colors and depth. Colors and patterns of granite floor tiles are formed naturally making each tile unique.
Sealed Granite Flooring Types
Pre-sealed granite tiles are fairly standard but it’s important to pay attention to the type of sealing that the granite tiles have been treated with: topical or penetrating sealers. Topical sealers work just fine but do not withstand pools of water. Penetrating sealers, on the other hand, are naturally absorbed throughout the granite offering better protection.
Granite Flooring Installation
Granite tile is a solid stone and is very heavy compared to other tile flooring options. Granite is one of the more difficult tile floorings to install. Proper subfloor preparation and underlayment is especially important when installing granite floors. Like any stone tile, granite can bend and crack if not properly installed. You will want your granite flooring professionally installed to avoid irregularities and damage.
