About Us

Granite is one of the strongest and most unique surfaces used for custom countertops. Resistant to scratches and heat, granite is a combination of the mineral quartz crystals, feldspar and other minerals formed from liquid magma, the molten rock found at the core of the planet. When liquid magma is cooled slowly, it forms granite, which has the hardness and durability of diamond.

Granite is a natural product and comes from the ground, which means no two slabs of granite are the same.

Below are just a few colors of granite, but there are hundreds to choose from, please call 716-625-8400 or stop into
6251 S. Transit Road, Lockport NY, 14094.

International Stone Gallery does everything from start to finish, meaning you will get to view your full slab and then, we will custom fabricate and install your countertop.

No. This is the number one question asked. Granite from International Stone Gallery is already sealed.

A kitchen countertop should be an inch and a quarter thick. Bathroom vanity tops can be thinner.

You can. Granite is extremely hard and can withstand even the sharpest knives. It’s not a good thing for your knives though. They can get dull in as little as one use. We recommend using a wooden or plastic cutting board.

Like any solid surface, high impact blows can harm granite. Because of its crystalline structure, it can chip if subjected to sharp tipped hard objects. Unsealed granite can absorb stains such as oil, which can ultimately cause dark spots or discoloration. Heat from pots and pans or burning liquids will not affect granite under normal circumstances.

Granite is formed by extreme heat combined with pressure occurring beneath the earth’s crust. It is extremely unlikely that a granite countertop would crack or discolor when exposed to a hot pan.

Only in cases of severe abuse with a hammer or impact tool. A chip can be filled with a granite dust and epoxy mixture. If a chip occurs on your countertop, do not throw out the chipped pieces. We can use them to fix the countertop, so that no one will be able to tell it was ever chipped.

No, not with regular use. Granite is most susceptible to cracks during shipping and installation. Normal use will not overstress this durable material.

You can cantilever granite up to 12″ with sufficient support on the fixed end and with a large enough piece. Never cantilever unsupported granite where it might receive excessive stress like someone sitting on a counter or stepping on a counter to change a light bulb. You must have support underneath for these situations.

It is very hard to damage granite. If any damage occurs it can usually be fixed with a mixture of epoxy and ground up chips of granite.

Most natural stones are porous to some degree. Granite has very little porosity. Most colors will never show any moisture. A few colors may show some moisture if exposed for a period of time. For example, a puddle of water left on the counter for 30 minutes for some colors, may show a dark spot when the water is wiped away. This spot will then dry up and no evidence will show. If AGM daily granite cleaner is used there will be no need to reseal the countertops because cleaner contains some sealer and every time the countertops are cleaned they are also being sealed at the same time.

It is preferred to use a specially formulated cleaner, such as the AGM daily granite cleaner. When using our granite cleaner, let it sit for about 30 seconds and then wipe it off well using a soft cloth. This will work best. The AGM Granite cleaner also contains part sealer, which will help protect your countertops.

Granite is an igneous rock of visible crystalline formation and texture. It is composed primarily of feldspar, quartz, and mica. It starts off as liquid magma deep within the earth’s core where it is cooled and compressed over millions of years under tons of pressure. It is then quarried, cut and polished. Granite can be installed in various ways such as kitchen countertops, vanity tops, fireplace surrounds as well as jacuzzi surrounds and other custom designs.

The cost of granite counters can vary a lot depending on the color, edge profile and custom shapes used in the layout. Our pricing is very competitive and hard to surpass when you consider the total value of our services.
