S&N Granite’s Window Sill Variety
The windowsills of the house are one of those details that make the house attractive. A window sill that is cracked, old, or rotted makes the house look unwelcoming, no matter how well the rest of the house is kept.
S&N Granite, the premier stone mason in Ireland, offers both their residential and commercial customers the very best quality when it comes to granite and limestone windowsills.
Outdoor sills must be designed to withstand the toughest of Irish weather, so a stone windowsill is far more preferable to the one made of wood. They bear up to heavy rain, as well as baking from the sun. Moreover, a stone window sill is aesthetically pleasing, especially when it’s installed in a stone or brick house.
Granite is a tough, crystalline rock that is formed inside of volcanoes. Over aeons, the granite is pushed up to the surface of the earth, where it’s found in quarries. This makes granite perfect for outdoor use. It’s made up of mineral crystals like feldspar, quartz, black mica and hornblende, which can provide a variety of colours. Granite can be polished smooth and can tolerate a great deal of wear. A granite window sill gives a window and a home a particular charm.
Limestone is a rock made up of calcium carbonate. Limestone is usually greyish, but can come in different colours as well. Limestone is softer than granite, but it is still strong enough to make a sturdy window sill. Limestone is also easy to carve and can be cut away without splitting.
All of S&N Granite window sills are made according to customer specifications.
