Shop Granite Driveways
Granite, a rock type only beaten in strength by diamond, is the number one way of creating ultra-long-lasting driveways. It can easily take vehicles’ continued weight, meaning it won’t be a victim of wear and tear and look as good as the first day it was mined.
Why choose a granite driveway?
There are many reasons to choose to lay your driveway in granite instead of porcelain or marble, including increased durability and a modern yet timeless finish.
Are granite driveways durable?
Granite is classified as an igneous rock, composed primarily of quartz and feldspar, formed under the extreme temperatures of magma.
These component minerals and the extreme temperature exposure create a rock that is incredibly tough and durable.
Granite is also:
Skid and slip-proof
No matter the size of your car or the number of times it is used, granite is more than capable of standing up to even the toughest conditions.
Are granite driveways a stylish choice?
Due to its varied mineral content, granite has large crystals throughout, which are large enough to see without magnification.
It also features a visual mix of minerals that can come in various colours and tones to suit the preference of the customer.
This gives granite a speckled appearance, with small sections that shine gently in the light.
Available in a range of colours, from light silver to mid-grey, sawn black, to warm yellow, there’s an option for every homeowner.
Are granite driveways easy to maintain?
Granite driveways are very easy to keep clean and can be looked after with a minimum of fuss.
To keep it looking its best, simply sweep regularly to remove debris and use weed killer as needed.
If in need of a wash, clean your driveway with mild soap, (dish soap does the job), warm water, and a stiff-bristled brush to remove grime and dirt build-up.
It is recommended to use a stone sealant regularly to reduce the absorbency of granite, especially if it has been exposed to harsh chemicals and UV rays.
