Granite has a rich beauty that few other countertop materials can match. It is a natural product with a timeless aura and appeal. Granite countertops take a high-quality kitchen to the next level visually and often become the centerpiece of the room. With a wide variety of stones we offer in stock, you’ll find one that blends perfectly with your kitchen cabinets, flooring and walls.
Granite is a very hard substance and is not susceptible to scratches and will take normal wear and tear very well. Granite resists heat too, so its use near a range or cooktop is ideal. When you have to set down a hot pan fast, granite can take the heat without being damaged or weakened. In the bathroom, placing a hair tool on it that is still warm won’t be a problem.
Granite can be very resistant to stains and won’t absorb liquids when it is properly sealed. With our long-lasting sealer your new countertop will maintain its attractive good looks indefinitely.
Granite countertops have been proven to be a timeless look for decades and to add value to a home, but did you know about the following benefits?
Quartz countertops are relatively new, but they’ve found a loyal following because of their consistency look, attractive appearance, and durability. Also called engineered stone countertops, quartz countertops are here to stay.
Quartz is a manufactured product and can be very attractive. The manufacturing process allows the product to create a unique look that may not be possible in natural stone. Quartz can also have the look and feel of an expensive Italian marble without the cost or durability of fragile marble. The finish has a depth that can’t be produced with solid surface materials like Corian.
Quartz has superior durability to concrete and granite, but is quite a bit more forgiving, so it won’t chip or crack as easily.
Like other engineered countertop materials, quartz is non-porous so it does not require sealing. It stands up to juice, oil, wine, tomato, coffee and other sources of stains in the kitchen. For cleanliness, a non-porous surface means that it will not harbor bacteria or viruses. You can always be confident that you are getting your quartz countertop absolutely clean, and that’s a great benefit in both the kitchen and the bathroom.
