Chicago Kitchen Granie info: What is Granite ?

Granite is a special stone that has a very durable and attractive looking surface. These are the two main reasons we use Granite for Granite Countertops. Granite is also a very good construction material. This unique stone is found in huge amounts in mountains that is why Granite is cut into smooth pieces and viola, you have the perfect Granite Countertop. But let’s not forget the Polishing stage that really brushes it down to a very smooth surface.

can be shaped to fit kitchens, bathrooms, and even basements! When Granite is found it does not magically appear ready to use, it has to go through a process called “Granite fabrication” which is what our company does. To get into the details, Granite Countertop fabrication really just has three simple procedures it has to go through: cutting, smoothing, and routing. When cutting, it is simple cutting Granite stone into pieces that can be smoothed to perfection. Also for all these procedures, there are specific laser machines to help through the process and it makes sure everything is accurate to the nearest thousandth of an inch. Water is used to cool the Granite after being cut. Smoothing and routing are more simple steps that happen later. Smoothing uses a polisher that grinds the stone to a certain thickness. The router uses spinning diamond studded blades for the smooth corners of your Granite Countertops.
