Finnish granite withstands use and gazes

Granite on building facades, foundations, and floors brings a unique and valuable appearance to the property. Finnish granite is an excellent building stone with properties that withstand various weather conditions. Surface treatments are usually burnt, cross-hatched, split, or polished. Products are made to order according to the customer’s wishes and needs.

Finnish granite is a responsible choice for building materials.

Finnish granite is known for its high quality and durability. The hard stone types Kurun grey granite (Kuru Grey), Kurun reddish-brown granite (Kuru Redbrown), Kurun black diorite (Kuru Black), and Kivijärvi black gabro (Kivijärvi Black) are all suitable for use as building stone. In addition to our own stone types, we also refine and supply other well-known domestic granites. Domestic granite is characterized by low maintenance costs, durability, low carbon dioxide emissions for production and transport, and recyclability of materials. Additionally, using domestic stone for the entire production process provides local employment opportunities.

The appearance of the stone is completed with surface treatment.

The surface treatment method strongly affects the depth of color of a dry stone surface. A glossy stone surface always has the strongest color, and a cross-cut surface is the lightest. The surface treatment options for building stones are usually burned, cross-cut, polished, or split. The split surface, which is closest to the natural rock surface, is a good option for certain structures such as plinths.
