About Our Granite
Granite is the most durable of all stones. Its composition is very hard and similar to tha of a diamond. This feature makes it unique and ideal for the high traffic areas like kitchen counters and bathroom counters. Another great quality of granite is how low maintenance it’s cleaning is. You can clean with daily and seal it yearly to keep it looking as good as it did the first day it was installed. If taken care of properly over time it could last you a lifetime. Unlike other solid surfaces that need replacing every so often, granite will never need to be replaced once installed. The fact that it does not need to be replaced makes it environmentally conscious and a great choice when it comes to upgrading your kitchen.
About Our Quartz
Quartz was not introduced to kitchens until a modern mixture discovered how to use only ninety three percent of solid quartz to make counters. Quartz has the same glossy and rich look of granite and has similar color options. Polymer resins and crushed quartz are combined in the recipe to make these beautiful color slabs of stone. The swirls and differentiation of natural granite is similarly found in quartz as it comes from light neutral colors to dark greyish hues. When you think about kitchens you think of commotion and things moving around on countertops with both hot and cold temperatures. Quartz is a good solution for these characteristics as it is very hard to crack or chip. It also possesses qualities that are heat resistant for normal cooking temperatures.
With quartz you can get similar thicknesses as granite that can be made with different stylistic touches. We offer straight edge and curved edge finishes, depending on what looks best with your kitchen’s look. Since quartz is made through a process and is man made, you will find that it is slightly more expensive than granite and other natural compounds. Rare colors can also affect pricing.
