Choosing The Right Countertop
Stone countertops are incredibly durable and will immediately transform a kitchen or bathroom from good to great. While aesthetics may be subjective, the tangible response people have to stone countertops is always positive because they look so unique and amazing.
Granite and marble counters are mined from pure stone. No two stone slabs are exactly alike – ideal for creating a truly one-of-a-kind kitchen or bathroom by finding a color and design pattern that fits the personality and character of any room. Natural stone is the ideal material for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, patio bars, and so much more. Stone not only makes a unique, stylish statement it is easy to get, has manageable maintenance, exceptional durability and beauty that only nature can produce.
Quartz is one of the hardest minerals on Earth and because of its strength and abundance, quartz is a popular and reliable choice for countertops. Quartz or Quartzite countertops are manufactured from crushed quartz, typically 92% to 94%, that is mixed with polymers then heated and shaped into slabs that have the hardness and appearance of natural stone. The many benefits of quartz countertops include; they are extremely durable and unlike granite, marble, and other surfaces that require regular maintenance they never have to be sealed, and Quartz countertops are nonabsorbent so they resist staining and don’t harbor harmful bacteria.
A major focus for commercial countertop specifications is a material’s contribution to cleanliness, health and wellness. Porcelain slabs address and excel in providing those important qualities while still adding a unique look to your kitchen and bath. And, in addition to generally being less expensive, unlike natural stone countertops, porcelain does not require sealing or treatment with harsh chemicals.
