Granite work tops Bodrum Turkey
Granite is formed from liquid magma, the molten rock still found at the core of the planet, and then cooled slowly to form a substance approaching the hardness and durability of diamond. It contains minerals like quartz, feldspar, and mica. Different mixtures of these aggregate mineral crystals are moulded together giving the rich colour scale of final granite stones which are aesthetically beautiful. Granite is the hardest and most durable construction material on earth.
In the construction business, granite is used mostly for the stone's unique properties that allow it to protect buildings from external damage, and isolate heat. Granite also keeps its new look and brilliance for years and, with its wide selection of colours and rich texture, it's been widely recognized as one of the most preferred materials used in modern construction. Granite can be cut to different sizes and widths and holes can be punctured in it. As a result granite can also be used to cover the external surfaces of buildings.
Granite can easily be cleaned, contributing to better hygiene in buildings. Because of its diverse attributes, granite is one of most desired materials for use in the internal and external surfaces of buildings.
The price in Turkey for granite is very reasonable. An average sized apartment kitchen work top and splash back up to the cupboard varies from about 1500TL to 2500TL depending on the class of granite. This price included cutting and delivery.
