Granite has become one of the most coveted countertop materials because of its versatility, durability, and beautiful appearance. It tends to have a grainy appearance that also contains structures of interlocking crystals that gives it a unique appearance. Granite can be used indoors and outdoors for kitchens and bath countertops.
Quartz is stain, heat and scratch-resistant which makes it easy to maintain. In addition, it comes in a huge range of colors and because it is man-made, its pattern and texture are more consistent than marble and granite. Making this stone a great choice for high traffic areas in your home or business.
Marble is amongst the most beautiful stones made by nature. Marble can we found in almost any color, from black to pure white. Because marble is mainly made of calcium carbonate, is a softer stone. Unlike granite and because of its geological composition most marble will etch and stain if in contact with high acidity or oily elements.
Quartzite has similar if not stronger physical-mechanical features than granite. Quartzite is suitable for both internal and external applications depending on the particular type. Quartzite can uniquely offer colors and veining similar to that of marble with the added benefit of the hardness of granite, making this the ideal kitchen bench top material.
Soapstone is a very soft material sometimes used for countertops. Color options are limited as it only comes in varying shades of gray. Most slabs are smaller than 7 feet meaning a project is more likely to have seams. Unlike most natural stone countertops, soapstone should never be chemically sealed. Mineral Oil is used to give soapstone its rich finish.
