Fraser Residents Compare Granite Slab vs Granite Tile at Surface Encounters Showroom Tour
Granite countertops can be created with a large slab or by building a unique look using granite tiles
When making the granite slab vs granite tile choice, the most popular is a natural granite slab. A granite slab may vary in thickness and color depending on where the granite countertops were processed when purchased by the installer. These slabs are mined as a single stone from a granite quarry and milled to a specific thickness and finished to the customer’s specifications. While natural granite slabs have a breathtakingly beautiful characteristic about them the color and grain pattern of the slab are usually unique.
Unique design is one factor to consider when comparing granite slab vs granite tile. Surface Encounters (http://www.halfoffgranite.com/) kitchen countertop installers have learned that some homeowners prefer a tiled design for their new granite countertops. Granite tiles are created from smaller, but equally durable and beautiful pieces of granite. These granite tiles stick firmly to a countertop under-laminate when applied using a high strength construction adhesive. The tiles should then be sealed with two coats of clear granite sealant which will bring out the beauty of the natural granite in each tile.
Ease of installation is often a factor when considering granite slab vs granite tile. When properly installed, granite countertops made of granite tiles offer the same elegant look of a granite slab countertop with all the desirable properties of a granite slab. The added bonus of choosing to use granite tiles as opposed to granite countertop slabs is that they may be purchased individually and intermixed when needed to add or repair additional counter space.

Both are available in an equal amount of unique and deep, rich colors and can be purchased at Surface Encounters. Both are considered to be an asset and both add value to one’s home or business.
