Granite is a beautiful natural material. The unique properties of this igneous rock were slowly developed under the earth's surface millions of years ago. The cooling of the magma enabled the growth of large crystals that eventually turned into very hard and strong granite.
People have been using granite for thousands of years ever since ancient Egyptian times. Granite imparts functionality and elegance to homes, commercial facilities, public buildings, and monuments.

Marble is a metamorphic rock, which means that it was originated from another type of rock after being naturally subjected to high pressure and temperature.
Marble, like Granite, is also a beautiful material that has been used for thousands of years. Although marble is softer than granite, proper maintenance and care allow us to enjoy its beauty and benefits for many years.

Ceramic, unlike Marble and Granite is not a rock, but like them it is an inorganic material that has been used for thousands of years. Ceramic is a blend of substances including clays, silica, and metals, which is sculpted and cured at high temperatures.

Ceramic tiles offer other benefits. They are:
- Hard and Durable
- Versatile (variety of colours, textures, sizes and shapes)
- Easy to maintain and repair
