Granite can be ordered with many types of finishes.
This means what surface the texture has or what it looks like. Sunset’s advanced technology can create any of the options below.
This finish looks rugged and rough with a chiselled stone face. The edges of the stone are chipped by hand or with a machine and can be splintered or slightly fractured. The surface has natural clefts giving a very raw look. Granite monuments with a pitched finish have a rustic, natural look.
