Custom Cabinets Hattiesburg | Granite Counters
It is mid-morning in Poplarville, Mississippi and still raining cats and dogs. What was supposed to be light sprinkling has turned into a forceful shower. However, the temperatures are staying at a pleasant seventy-four degrees which anyone raised in the south of Mississippi would be a lunatic to complain unless you are one of those weirdos who enjoys the sweltering heat. It is people like you who would fair wonderfully in the flaming pits of Hades. I bet you won’t be complaining of it being too cold then. Just saying. Custom Cabinets Hattiesburg is going to talk about another fun subject today and that would be granite counter tops. Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring just got in a sample rack of granite counter tops this morning. There is a little sparkle now at the back of the show room that was not there before. Before we get into how amazing and wonderful granite counter tops are, let us stop a moment and talk about where granite actually comes from.
Where does granite come from? Great question readers of Custom Cabinets Hattiesburg! Supposedly 90% of granite is imported from Brazil, Italy, Spain, China, and India. According to our research on the World Wide Web most of the marble comes from Italy as well as onyx. Brazil supplies the most granite slabs and China has a supply of brown granite. The slab of granite takes about thirty days to go from where it has been, which apparent is in rocks and junk like that, to the hands of the wholesaler. It takes twenty-four to forty-eight hours to slice a block into individual slabs. The granite is sliced with gang saws which I know nothing about. After the granite sliced it is then cured in an oven after taking two days to apply a resin. After that the rest of the time is spent getting the granite slabs to market.
The mining of the rock and getting it to the market is a complex process, Custom Cabinets Hattiesburg. The miners extract the granite slabs from the selected landscape and then ship the blocks for production. They use gang saws (no idea what those are) to cut the granite slabs and then the prepare them for the resin filling and afterwards shove them in the specialized oven to cure. The resin seals the fissures and pits that are on the raw granite slabs. Once the granite slabs have been cured they are taken to their own rock day spa and are polished and buffed. After the freshly polished and fancied up granite slabs are done with their makeovers they are each photographed and then loaded into containers for shipment overseas. Some of the more exotic materials such as onyx and some of the rare granite slabs have a plastic mesh stuck to the entire reverse side with an adhesive. The plastic mesh is there to reinforce some of the more delicate and exotic slabs to keep them intact.
So Custom Cabinets Hattiesburg, now that we know the basics of where granite comes from and the process to get the granite slabs to the United States we can talk about how these granite slabs become our beautiful counter tops. Once the granite slabs make it to the manufacturer they are cut and made to fit the design and measurements of your kitchen cabinets and counters.

The down side with granite is it is not very tolerate to extreme heat. For instance when taking a batch of cookies from the oven sitting it on the granite counter top without any protection underneath would be a no-no. The the resin that was cooked onto the granite will start to bubble and peel and will no longer be smooth. Always make sure to protect your granite counter tops. They too have their vulnerable side.
