IMPORTANT REASONS TO DEMAND GRANITE CURBING & PRODUCTS
1. GRANITE IS INDEFINITE
Granite has an "indefinite" life expectancy as it does not deteriorate like other curbing materials. It endures the most rigorous of environments for generations. Commercial developers, land planners and engineers agree & prefer the natural beauty and durability of granite. Only granite can withstand severe weather punishment, harsh road chemicals, abuse of constant growing traffic and freeze-thaw cycles. Due to its extreme durability it can be removed and reset when the curb "reveal" or exposed curb Is diminished due to road resurfacing.
2. GRANITE IS COST EFFECTIVE
while some may say that granite's initial cost may be slightly higher than competitive materials such as concrete or asphalt, significant life-cycle studies have proved conclusively that granite curb lasts significantly longer and has a far greater value over the life of the project. Since it rarely needs replacement or repair it has always been the first choice of designers and architects who demand lasting quality in their projects. To put it simply, granite lasts longer, looks better and over all costs less than any other competitive material making it the only choice for today's rigorous applications.
TIMELESS GRANITE CURBING FOR YOUR SITE DEVELOPMENT OR HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION NEEDS
As the name implies, sloped edging is installed at an angle, with the top of the rectangular block hidden, usually by pavement, dirt or grass. The bottom portion of the curb is below grade embedded in gravel, pavement or concrete.
J&B Granite and Stoneworks offers a full line of sloped edging, in a variety of widths, depths and short pieces and wedges for radius curves, as follows:
· Widths:3 to 6 inches
· Depths: 9 to 12 inches
· Lengths: up to 10 feet
· Radius pieces
The standard finish for sloped edging is a split face. Since the top of sloped edging is buried, pieces will have either a sawn top or split top, unless otherwise specified by the customer.
· Sawn top: (standard): the top of the curb has a smooth finish created by saw cutting.
· Split top: the top of the curb has a rough finish created by being split.
· Split face: the face of the curb has a rough finish created by being split.
