Granite Countertops

Granite remains one of the most popular surfaces in the market today. Granite is a natural material that is mined in locations throughout the world. A metamorphic rock, it forms when magma cools quickly at the surface, forming a matrix of tiny crystals in various colors depending on the minerals it contains. Granite is extremely durable as well as beautiful. It resists the heat and changing temperatures well, making it the only choice for outdoor applications, such as outdoor kitchens.  There are several levels of granite available, from

Quartzite Countertops

Quartzite is often confused with quartz. However, unlike quartz, quartzite is a natural material similar to granite. A metamorphic stone, quartzite is formed when sand is heated and compressed within the earth. Its patterns and coloring is more similar to marble than granite. Unlike marble, however, it is extremely hard and durable. If you like the look of marble but want something more wear resistant, quartzite is a great option for you.  Quartzite countertops are very durable and easy to care for. However, it is a porous material and will need to be sealed on a regular basis, similar to granite.

Marble Countertops

Marble is a natural material that has long been valued for its soft hues and gentle flowing lines. It is an extremely elegant material that looks beautiful in kitchens, bathrooms, on walls or on tables. Its naturally cooling properties make it a favorite for kitchens since it won’t absorb the heat from the oven. It is, however, softer than granite or quartz and can become scratched if not cared for properly. We recommend marble for indoor surface projects.

Soapstone Countertops

Soapstone is a natural material, similar to granite and quartzite. Soapstone is chemically inert (i.e. chemicals won’t damage it!), doesn’t react to heat and has a very high density, making it impervious to stains and bacteria. It is composed largely of mineral talc, which gives soapstone its characteristically smooth “soap” feel.  Soapstone is less diverse color wise than granite. Slab colors are typically medium gray and can have a greenish cast. Over time, the soapstone will darken to a deep charcoal. Some soapstone may contain pronounced veining produced by quartz in the stone. Soapstone is less brittle than granite as well as less porous, making it a very durable material for countertops.
