Granite countertops - created by nature and fashioned by modern technology, are an investment homeowners will never regret. With deep iridescent colors, granite offers that elusive one-of-a-kind beauty created only in nature. As a result, granite countertops add character and warmth to kitchens, baths and other areas of the home with a richness that cannot be duplicated in synthetic materials. The variety of colors, flecks, and veining available make granite a top choice for any room, and a perfect fit for design styles ranging
Durability: Granite can withstand scratching, chipping, staining, and burning, making it appropriate even for the most heavily-used areas of the home. Harsh cleaning products and highly acidic foods (such as lemons) can potentially damage granite surfaces. Maintenance: Granite is low-maintenance, and will only need a re-application of sealer annually. Stains can be prevented simply by wiping the surface with a wet cloth after use.
Marble countertops are beautiful and add a sophisticated element to your home. Most people associate marble with luxury due to its uses in expensive or royal historical buildings. Marble is also a prized material for kitchen countertops. The fact remains that the beauty of marble is still greatly appreciated. Being a natural stone with a distinctive look, marble will most likely remain popular for a long time to come. Marble is an ideal natural material for foyers, bathrooms, floors, and hearths.
Durability: Because marble is more prone to chipping and scratching than harder surfaces such as quartz and granite, marble surfaces are best for medium-traffic areas of the home. Maintenance: To protect against stains, marble surfaces will need periodic sealing.
Quartz countertops are made from one of the hardest minerals on earth, they are arguably the most durable option for kitchens. Quartz is non-porous and does not require any sealing – ever. They are also very durable but cannot be considered indestructible either. They are stain-resistant as well, so spilling wine or salad dressings on them simply requires a quick clean up. Available in an array of rich, radiant colors, quartz is an increasing popular choice for kitchen countertops, because its non-porous surface naturally inhibits the growth of bacteria and mold.
Durability: An extremely hard surface, quartz is appropriate for heavily-used areas. Quartz is highly resistant to scratching, staining, and burning, although it is less resistant to impact than granite, and chipping along the edges is sometimes seen. Maintenance: Quartz surfaces are easily maintained with a mild cleaner. Re-sealing will never be necessary.
