Choosing Countertop Materials

Here we offer everything you need to get started.

In order to choose the countertop that is right for you and your lifestyle, it is good to know a little bit about all of your options. The more you know, easier your choice will be, and the more confident your will be that you made the right choice.

We offer Granites from all over the world, Engineered Stone from six different manufacturers, and Solid Surface products from more than nine different sources. The benefit to you is an extensive choice of materials and colors, with no pressure to buy "our" product.

Granite has become a top choice for countertops because it is both durable and beautiful. However granite does require regular maintenance. Granite is appreciated because it holds up to heat and looks permanent and substantial. Because it is porous, granite must be sealed to reduce the potential for staining.

Engineered Stone, or Quartz, is another favorite for countertops. It is easy to care for and stain resistant. It comes in a wide range of colors, has a nonporous surface that resists scratches, and requires no maintenance. 

Solid Surface countertops come in an wide array of colors and patterns, are seamless, non-porous, and stain resistant. Because the color is solid all the way through, it is possible to sand out most scratches. Solid surface countertops are the "most repairable" of all materials. Sinks can be made into the countertop using the same or contrasting colors.

 We also offer several exotic materials such as Soapstone, Slate, Limestone, as well as Environmentally Friendly Countertop products that are made from recycled materials.
