A dense coarse-grained rock and one of the most beautiful natural stones in the world. Granite is an extraordinarily hard stone, difficult to damage, generally impossible to scratch, heat resistant and durable, making it an ideal choice for countertops. Granite is resilient and can last decades on end, is easy to clean and maintain, all without compromising its visual appeal. It creates a luxurious, spacious feel in any home. With hundreds of colors available its no wonder granite is becoming the best choice.
Quartz countertops are a combination of 93% Quartz stone and 7% bonding agents. The man made slabs are then fabricated in the same manner as granite. Quartz countertops are non-porous and 4 times stronger than granite. Quartz is most well know as a white or transparent stone, but it actually exists in a whole array of colors. Natural quartz is extremely hard and highly resistant to acid, making it a great choice for countertops. Because its non-porous, bacteria and other germs cannot grow and multiply making quartz one of the most hygienic surfaces you can use for your kitchen and bathrooms.
Solid surface countertops are made of durable man-made acrylic. Acrylic resists stains, moisture, sunlight and heat, repairs easily with light buffing and can be molded to any shape, making it the only countertop material available with a seamless integrated sink. Solid surface tops are available in a wide array of colors and patterns.
