Homeowners are always finding exciting new places to showcase the natural beauty of granite in their homes. In addition to kitchen design, and bathroom vanities, another place where granite is showcased is as a fireplace surround and hearth. Granite’s naturally heat resistant, making it a perfect material for a fireplace surround. Additionally, granite can make an ordinary fireplace a gorgeous focal point, and by sealing the granite with AGM sealer and maintaining it with AGM cleaner, both available at Mr. Stone.com, it will stay gorgeous for a lifetime.
Granite is a bold design statement and reflects the homeowner's personal design style. A hearth and surround can be subtle, complementing other elements of the room, or bold, standing in stark contrast to its surroundings. Granite is unmatched when it comes to strength and durability, but accidents can happen, and when they do Mr.Stone.com has a repair kit that’s both effective and easy to use.
The fireplace surround is defined as the “frame” of the fireplace, which means that family and friends will naturally be drawn to this feature.

And when you have a need to repair small chips in the hearth (the floor of the fireplace that usually extends into the room) Mr.Stone.com’s chip repair kit will make it look like that chip never even happened.
