We offer the following materials:
A granite countertop is still considered by many as one of THE essential home features, and its natural beauty easily fits into any style home. Granite is a hard, natural, igneous rock of volcanic origin containing quartz, feldspar and silica and is mined from quarries all around the world. Granite is among the most popular type of countertops, has rich visual appeal and comes in a seemingly endless variety of colors and styles. Natural colors and patterns multiply to fit any designer mood, from warm and homey to cool and elegant. The versatile and stunning patterns are ideal for unforgettable granite countertops, backsplashes, walls and floors in both homes and businesses.
Marble is an elegant natural stone to complete your home remodeling project, and will instantly add significant visual appeal and sophistication to any space. Contrary to belief, marble is available in more than just the typical shades of white and gray. Each slab is unique and can be found in a wide variety of hues including white, black, gray, yellow, green, pink, and gold. Regardless of where you install your marble countertop in your home, keep in mind that it is not known as a low maintenance stone. Marble is vulnerable to staining from wine, juice and other oil that can seep deep into the rock, and this countertop needs to be sealed regularly for protection.
Quartz has exploded in popularity due to its appearance and durability. With the look of natural stone, minus the maintenance, quartz surfaces give granite a run for its money. Quartz countertops are an engineered product using 95% ground natural quartz and 5% polymer resins. Made from one of the hardest minerals on earth, quartz is nearly indestructible, and because it is nonporous your countertop is antimicrobial and easy to keep clean and relatively bacteria-free. Quartz is resistant to heat, but if the temperature is continuously excessive you can damage your quartz countertop — using a hot pad or trivet at all times is recommended.
Quartzite is still a bit new on the scene, but its popularity has quickly grown in the past few years. Quartzite is beautiful and exotic with a look that is often similar to marble, yet a durability comparable to granite. This luxurious stone is worth the investment! Quartzite is nearly twice as hard as glass and harder than the blade of a knife. It is also resistant to common kitchen acids and will not etch like some other surfaces can. Known for its subtle color movement and delicate patterns, there are an impressive array of colors, leaning heavily toward whites and grays. You may also find slabs with striking veins or hints of myriad colors including: rust, brown, black pink, red, blue, yellow, and green.
Soapstone has a warm look and a soft feel with added distinctive character that can become your home’s centerpiece. Soapstone is a serpentine stone containing talc, giving it the tactile touch of a bar of soap. Soapstone varies in color from a soft white to deep charcoal and contains intricate dark veining. Soapstone is among the most heat-resistant stone available. Forgetting a hot pan on the countertop will not crack the surface, and it is a great architectural element for a fireplace surround. Despite the ease of maintenance, home owners should be mindful that it is extremely soft (ranging from 1-4 on the Mohs mineral hardness scale) and does scratch easily. But the good news is that soapstone is also resilient! If your soapstone scratches it can be easily concealed or removed using mineral oil (for smaller scratches) or sandpaper (for larger scratches). Keep scratches to a minimum with simple preventative maintenance — such as using a cutting board for food preparation.
Wood can add warmth, texture and natural beauty in a way that no other surface can. The seemingly unlimited options of wood types, stains and finishes give them a very customized appearance that goes well with any style, including: traditional, country, French country, Mediterranean, Old World, modern, contemporary, transitional and eclectic. Although beautiful, wood countertops require consistent care and maintenance to keep them looking fresh and clean. Scratches, cuts, moisture and staining are possible blemishes that may occur. That’s where we come in, to discuss how you use your kitchen and what materials work best with your lifestyle.
