Granite Finishes

 

There are various types of finishes the monuments could be subjected to. Although, standard polishing is the most popular type of finish that could be applied. We will be also able to do the following finishes.

 

 

HonedHoned finish granite / Matte Finish

Honed finish on granite will not look as shiny as polished finish and will also lack the reflective nature seen on polished stones.

Honed gives the stone smooth and gloomy finish. Honed finished headstones are also scratch resistant since they are not glossy.

 

 

 

 

 

leather granite finishLeather Finish

Leather finish gives a unique aesthetic to the stone and gives a natural look to the stone although the texture is created by skilled professionals.

The little nooks and crannies created will give the unique worn look of leather which is popular among many. The texture is mainly influenced by the type of the stone and its colour.

 

 

 

 

 Sandblasted

Sandblasted graniteSandblasting of granite gives a rough texture to the surface. Depending on your requirement, we shall sand blast the stone light or deep.

Sandblasting not only improves the look of the stone but also affect properties like,  wet ability, and resistance as the headstones have to stand in the grave for decades without blemishes.

 

 

 

 

 

 Flamed

Granite Flamed finishThe surface of the stone is subjected to high temperature flame. This results in a faded, non-smooth, and slight colour variation because of the reaction of minerals in the stone with the flame.

Flamed is not the most preferred finish at least among our Irish buyers. However, we get occasional order that require the headstone to be treated with flame.

 

 

 

 

 

 Brushed granite finishBrushed

Brushing the surface of the stone with metal rotary brushes creates an antique finish to the stone. This gives the stone a bumpy look since the brushing erodes all the softer particles on the surface, the surface will be fairly smooth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Bush hammered granite finishBush hammered

The stone is pounded with machine or small hand-held hammer depending on the type or size of the stone. The result is a fairly smooth surface with small craters and pits due to the impact. Since granite is one of the strongest occurring materials in nature and we work with only top quality stones, they are good at taking all abuse when the headstone is bush hammered. The cost of bush hammering could be slightly more dear compared to Flamed and Waterjet finish since it involves manual hammering, which takes more time.

 

 

 

 

 

chiseled granite finishChiseled

One of the oldest methods of finish is chiseled. As the name suggests, the stone is chiseled with a small chisel. It will give a rough and chipped surface. This is done with hand and the craftsmanship adds a classic look to the stone.
