Does Recycled Granite Fade?

No, recycled granite does not have any coloring added to it so the color will not fade or chip off like some man-made pavers.
Is Recycled Granite as strong as traditional concrete pavers?
Recycled granite pavers are generally 3 to 5 times stronger than traditional concrete pavers with a PSI rating of 15,000 to 23,000 (depending on the particular color granite) compared to 3,000 to 5,000 PSI for concrete.

Is Recycled Granite slippery?

No, the polished side that you normally see on a countertop is placed facedown leaving a textured surface to walk on that is slip resistant either wet or dry.
