Giallo California Granite is an igneous stone created several billion years ago. Naturally beautiful and durable, Giallo California granite is prized for exterior cladding, countertops, water features, or wherever a long lasting material is needed. Giallo California granite is scratch resistant, weather resistant and sanitary. Quarried in Brazil, Giallo California granite brings an intrinsic value to any project it enhances.
At StonePly, the rugged durability and weather resistance of Giallo California granite is combined with lightweight, strong and easy to use honeycomb. This creates a stronger, more durable panel that is able to resist wind, seismic loads and impact. Giallo California granite is excellent for stone curtain wall panels, exterior or interior granite cladding, water features, counter tops, furniture, elevator panels and wherever a long lasting, naturally beautiful stone is needed.
Other than diamonds, rubies, and sapphires, granite is the hardest natural stone. Granite is the preferred stone for exterior cladding as it is known for its strength and resistance to the elements. Unlike marble, granite is a very low maintenance choice for your building exterior; it is extremely resistant to heat, scratching, and stains.
Quarried all over the world, granite comes in a wide variety of colors. Typically you find granite finished with a high polish to show off the beautiful array of colors and natural grain. Granite's appearance is phenomenal for exterior applications or interior accents but can sometimes look too "busy" in confined spaces. To meet the need of current trends, granite can be honed, sandblasted, or have other textures applied to soften its natural tones and provide a very aesthetically pleasing panel.
Granite is not only found in commercial cladding applications but is a favorite for counter tops and flooring as well. The stone is extremely durable and easily maintained and cleaned. Being harder than marble and limestone, granite surpasses other stones in its ability to resist staining and acidic materials.
If your requirements call for a stone that has permanence, enduring texture and color, along with complete freedom from deterioration and maintenance, then granite is an ideal candidate for your project.
