There are a variety of countertop types available on the market. Each is defined by the material used to create them. We carry premium countertop materials, including marble, solid surfacing, granite, and quartz. They all have different attributes and care requirements. For instance, quartz countertops are non-porous and naturally stain-resistant, but granite countertops typically require stain treatments at regular intervals throughout their lifetime to stay looking beautiful. Our experienced team can guide you through the pros and cons of each of the types of countertops. You can also learn more by browsing through a few of our options below or contact us today to get started.
Quartz countertops are actually manmade and engineered using a mixture of ground quartz with resins, pigments, and polymers. The result is a super durable, heat, stain, and abrasion-resistant countertop that’s easy to clean and requires minimal care.
Granite countertops are made from slabs of natural granite that each have unique compositions and appearances. This also means that they have inherent imperfections that can cause susceptibility to staining and damage, so many granite countertops require regular resealing to stay looking and functioning beautifully.
Like granite, marble countertops feature beautiful natural variations to create a truly unique addition to your space. They also are naturally porous and susceptible to staining if not regularly sealed and properly cared for.
