If you’re looking for a premium stone surface that’s also easy on the eyes and extremely durable and hard wearing, it’s hard to go past granite pavers.
Granite is an igneous rock which is formed by magma or lava solidifying and cooling over the span of millions of years. Mainly made of quartz, mica, and feldspar, this hard volcanic stone is popular in the building and construction industry because it is extremely tough and durable.
These qualities make granite pavers an ideal natural stone paving for interior and exterior areas. Due to its genetic makeup and strength, it is most suitable for driveways and commercial applications where the stone will be subject to heavyweight or pressure. Granite pavers are also highly resistant to scratching and abrasion which makes them super easy to maintain.
As a natural stone with speckles or flecks throughout it, granite is available in a few colours. At Armstone we offer a range of charcoal, mid-grey and earthy granite pavers for your choosing. Our pavers are also available in a variety of shapes and sizes whereby you can select thicknesses ranging from 12mm to 30mm.
As granite is a natural product, it has small hairline fractures throughout it. While you won’t be able to see them with your naked eye, they are there and under immense pressure can cause potential breakages down the track. So if you are considering using granite pavers for a driveway or heavy foot traffic area, we strongly recommend choosing thicker pavers that are at least 30mm thick.
Part of the durability of granite is that it is highly weather-resistant. As it is made of lava and magma, it is robust and can endure cold temperatures and heavy downpours.
When choosing your granite pavers you also want to consider its finish. At Armstone,we have both flamed and exfoliated finishes. A flamed finish means the paver has a textured surface which gives it a non-slip quality. This makes the granite pavers suitable for use around your pool, patio, courtyard or other outdoor areas with pathways and heavy foot traffic.
In case you want to add granite flooring all around your property, Armstone also offers granite tiles for interior use, and granite pool coping to finish off your poolside paving. Whether your residential or commercial property has a traditional or contemporary design, granite pavers will add character and substance that will last several lifetimes.
At Armstone, we pride ourselves on sourcing the finest quality outdoor granite tiles from the most reputable worldwide sources. We are always happy to work closely with you to bring your unique ideas and dreams to life.
