We repeatedly hear concerns from our clients about radon and granite.
In fairness, this information is provided by the Marble Institute of America (www.usenaturalstone.com) which claims to be “the world’s leading information resource and advocate” for the stone industry. Those who advocate that granite is dangerous tend to be the man-made providers of stone-like materials.
If after doing your research, you are still concerned about radon emissions, Kurtis has other alternative “stone” products for countertop purposes – such as Silestone or Zodiaq. It is represented that these man-made products do not emit the same types of emissions.
Consumers must decide for themselves – considering the information we have available to us today, Kurtis believes there is no health issue with granite.
