GraniTite® is the first real improvement in decorative coatings in thirty years. "Knockdowns" and "spray downs" all incorporate sand and cement as aggregate and binders. GraniTite® is made of quartz! Instead of cement it uses state of the art modified resins. The result is a decorative coating system second to none.
GraniTite® can be applied to pool decks, walkways, patios, porches, balconies, stairs, driveways, entrances, wheelchair access ramps, walls, countertops, etc.
GraniTite® offers the beauty of stone and the best features of today's coating technologies! Why use a thirty-year-old coating system when you can have GraniTite® for the same price?
