Granite

We have the perfect countertop for your project whether your countertop needs are for your kitchen, bathroom, or other surface. Real stone improves the value of your home and never goes out of style. With proper maintenance it will never need replaced.

Why Choose Granite
• Granites is not a trend it dates back to ancient times and has timeless beauty. These are forever counter tops.
• Granite is unique, no two pieces are the same.  Veining patterns, specks, swirls, and pitting all vary.
• Granite is expensive, but adds value to your home.
• Granite is clean.  It doesn't harbor bacteria and is a sanitary top.
• Granite is easy to keep clean.  Clean it with a mild soap and water. You can also purchase special granite or stone cleaners that provide a protective thin film. Re apply sealer as needed.
• Granite is very durable and strong it is a very hard substance. The only harder substances are quartz and diamond. If you find a way to chip your granite it can usually be repaired.
• Granite is cool to the touch and makes the perfect cooking surface to rollout dough or make candy. Granit countertops are heat resistant. You can put hot pot, pans, fryers or toaster ovens directly on the countertop without worrying that is will scorch or burn them.

If you are thinking about adding a bar or kitchen area to your outside patio, the outdoor elements will not affect granite. It can be used outside.  Just be sure to tell your granite sales person if you will be using it outside.  They may have recommendations for thicknesses that you need, etc.

Quartz

Quartz countertops are man-made. They are formed by combining 90% ground quartz (a natural hard mineral) with 8-10% resins, polymers, and pigments. This process forms a very hard granite-like surface. The appearance depends on how the quartz is ground: coarsely ground quartz produces a flecked appearance, while finely ground quartz produces a smooth look.

Why choose Quartz?
• Quartz is more affordable than granite but is still a real stone product.
• Quartz counter tops are extremely durable. They are stronger than granite or marble.
• Quartz countertops are manufactured in a way that makes them hyperallogenic.
• Quartz countertops are easy to clean by wiping them down with a mild detergent.
• Quartz does not need to be sealed.
• Unlike stone slabs, quartz can be manufactured with a controlled appearance. Quartz is manufactured in a way that allows each slab to have the same appearance in color, texture and pattern.
