Comparing Granite Qualities

When choosing your granite slabs near Baltimore, you may come across the words “commercial” and “premium.” These are both a grade or quality of granite that can affect the look, feel, and price of your granite countertop.

Check out this video to hear from an expert on granite slabs and granite quality. Premium grade is the desired quality for a granite countertop. It will have consistent color and veining throughout the entire slab. Premium will also have few cracks, fissures, or flaws of any kind, making it easier for a fabricator to use the entire slab.

Commercial-grade granite slabs are still beautiful and strong like premium. However, commercial granite will have more flaws, structural weaknesses, and inconsistencies in color. This type of granite is usually used in commercial applications where the color and veining is not as important as in someone’s home.
