Dakota Granite has a long history of working closely with architects, design teams, and specifiers to solve their granite requirements.

Granite is an all-natural product having many uses and applications in the building and construction industries. Granite is the most durable of the natural stone products and one of the most sustainable materials used in the construction field. Because of the numerous quarries around the country, granite often qualifies for LEED points due to the 500-mile or less radius from the quarry to the project.

Virtually 100% wasted or damaged granite pieces can be recycled to be used in other areas of construction or landscaping. Dakota Granite produces products such as thin veneer, full bed ashlar, and various signage products that are manufactured from "scrap" pieces from our monumental division. Granite is abundant in nature, recyclable, low to no maintenance, durable, affordable over the building life cycle, and adds value to your project.

Architectural Granite Colors & Finishes

The timeless beauty of natural granite combined with various finishes provides endless creative options to customize any architectural and landscape space. Granite provides durable, low maintenance, and value added features to benefit every investment. Not just any granite... Dakota Granite™.

Architectural Granite Finishes

Polished: High gloss or mirror-like smooth finish highlighting the granite's natural appearance.

Honed: A smooth matte-like finish.

Flamed/Thermal: Heat removal of fine surface layer exposing the granite's surface; this offers a textured look and feel.

Sawn: Achieved by leaving the slab saw marks on the granite.

Brushed: Steel brushes are used to obtain a grainy textured look.

Antique: Leather-like texture.

Sandblast: Fine sand shot at the surface to achieve a course texture for non-slip purposes

Split-Face: The irregular face caused by splitting granite will have various concave and convex areas. A very rough texture.

Rock-face: Similar to split-face, but the edges of the face are pitched to achieve true arris lines.

Custom finishes are available.
