Granite may have more competition than ever before, but its popularity is still unquestioned. The beautiful, strong surface of granite has a natural grain, which gives each installation a unique look. Granite is tough. It resists cracks and chips, and you can place a hot pot on it without catastrophe. If you apply sealer annually, granite stands up to stains. Granite is still considered one of the top must-have home features, according to a survey of prospective homebuyers from the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®. Its natural beauty often is eye-popping, and granite easily fits in any style kitchen.
Ask any real estate expert what the No. 1 upgrade with the greatest return is, and the answer will be the kitchen.
The gleaming surface looks polished and feminine alongside gold or brass accenting or monochromatic and modern when paired with chrome. Considering marble's multifaceted ability to work with so many different design styles, it makes sense that it's trending right now. You will notice that marble is vulnerable to staining agents (like wine, juice and oil) that seep deep into the rock. When this happens, it's difficult to reverse, so professionally sealing the surface upon installation is essential to help prevent damage. Because of this, we suggest sealing your marble countertops every 6 months.
What can we say, it's strong and beautiful. The durability winner is quartz, the man-nature combo countertop. Crushed quartz stone is mixed with resin to produce countertops that range from solid colors to the look of real granite, but they’ll beat natural stone in toughness. Quartz is almost indestructible under normal kitchen prep conditions. It laughs at knife cuts, and, unless you take a sledgehammer to it, it won’t chip or crack. It’s stain- and bacteria-resistant, and it doesn’t require sealing.
We are proud to offer Quartz from Cambria, Caeserstone, Quartz Master, Cosmos, MSI Q Quartz, Hanstone, and Bramati.
