Granite Countertops

Granite countertops come in different levels based on how unique the colors and designs on it are. The level of granite does not influence its properties. All granite is incredibly durable, scratch resistant, and able to withstand high temperatures.

Levels 1-2 Granite

Most people tend to work with Level 1 or 2 granite. This is because even though they’re technically the lowest grades, they’re still high-quality, durable and look great. This makes them one of the most affordable high-quality stone countertops out there.

Levels 3+ Granite

Granite goes up to level 5, 6, and even seven. Each level is progressively more unique in their patterns and colors. Think of it like buying a work of art. It costs more when the piece you have is an original. When you get a granite countertop with a high level, there’s truly no one else who has the same countertop pattern as you.

Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops are produced from pure natural quartz, one of the hardest minerals on Earth. Small amounts of glass, polymer resin, and color powder are added to give it an even more magnificent finish. We carry quartz countertops in unique patterns, styles, and colors.

An added benefit of quartz is that it is non-porous. This makes it naturally stain and bacterial resistant without the regular application of sealants or waxes. Similarly to granite, quartz comes in several price tiers. Please consult us to learn more.

Quartzite Countertops

Quartzite is an exotic, naturally occurring metamorphic rock, created when sandstone is subjected to extreme heat and pressure. It’s stunning appearance can mimic that of marble, but it is even more durable (it’s more durable than granite, too, for that matter).

Quartzite countertops are best suited for areas that experience lots of wear and tear. Due to its combination of strength and beauty, however, quartzite is an excellent choice for any countertop. It will look fantastic for years no matter where you install it.

Marble Countertops

Marble is a metamorphic stone formed when sediment crystallizes under (you guessed it) great heat and pressure. Even though it’s a stone, it’s not as hard as most others. For this reason, marble countertops require more maintenance than our other stone countertops. To keep it looking pristine, you should seal it every six months. However, many prefer the look of an aged marble surface, that has etches and stains from its years. Marble countertops come in two finishes.

Marble Finishes

Honed Finish

A honed finish is when the surface is sanded down, leaving it flat, soft, and consistent. Think of it as the “matte” option. This finish prevents scratches from showing up as much and leaves it looking lighter than the polished finish.

Polished Finish

The polished marble finish leaves your countertops highly reflective. This shiny exterior showcases the colors and character of your counters a bit better. Although it is stain resistant, you have to be careful about scratching it.
