What is made from Leznikovsky granite?
The most popular material for wall and floor cladding is, of course, 60×30 cm tiles. For paving, it is advisable to use a 3 cm thick slab with a heat-treated surface. It prevents slips and falls during rain and snow. In the photo you can see how the polished and rough surface of Leznikovsky granite looks like. To achieve a match in the color of these two types of granite processing, you can use impergant – liquids that give the surface a “wet effect”.
Very spectacular and bright window sills come out of Leznikovsky granite, which perfectly complement the red brick facade.
