countertops

complement your new cabinets with the right countertop

When remodeling your home, it’s hard to decide what projects are worth investing in. Kitchens are where the majority of people spend their time and are one of the biggest selling points of any home. The right countertop has the ability to set the tone of the space and become the focal point of the room. If you are replacing your cabinets, choosing to also update your countertop will complete and finish the look of your kitchen.

A new countertop will not only improve the aesthetic of your space, it will also add value and appeal to your home. By picking a countertop that fits your budget, compliments your style and suits your everyday needs, your entire space can easily be transformed. 

quartz

The most preferred choice for counter tops, quartz offers the look of natural stone with less maintenance. It’s available in any color or pattern imaginable, making it easy to match any cabinetry or flooring

what is it?

Quartz is an engineered stone that resembles natural stone, but with a more consistent pattern and color. It is comprised of 93% quartz and 7% polyester resin. Quartz is one of the Earth’s hardest minerals, making quartz counters tops some of the most durable. According to the Mohs scale of hardness, quartz, like diamonds, is harder than steel

upscale & low maintenance

This material is non-porous, making it extremely resistant to mold or bacteria growth, scratches and common sources of stains in the kitchen such as juice, oil, wine, tomato, coffee. It also has a similar level of heat resistance to Granite. Quartz is easy to clean and maintain, no sealer required

where to use it

The endless variations of colors and patterns available make quartz an ideal choice for any room in your home. It is great in the kitchen where it can serve as a countertop, an island, tabletop or backsplash. In the bathroom, quartz can be used as a counter top, vanity top, wall panels or shower walls

Granite

A natural stone forged by volcanoes, granite is a very durable and resistant material that is available in many colors and patterns sure to compliment any room in your home

what is it?

Granite is strikingly beautiful, tough and 100% natural stone. Each slab features its own charm and appeal due to the unique nature of the color and variation. From warm earth tones, shades of green or blue, to more subtle tones of black, gray and white, you’re sure to find a natural granite slab to match your individual design style

strong & natural

Granite is an extremely durable substance and is able to resist chipping, scratching or cracking. If a blemish does appear, it is simple to fix with a filler or epoxy. When properly sealed, it inhibits the growth of bacteria and resists stains. It is also relatively heat resistant. Granite is easy to maintain, though it is recommended that you re-seal your counter top once a year

where to use it

When installed correctly, this will be the last counter top you’ll ever need. With a lifespan twice as long as quartz, granite is a great, long-term investment. Not only does it add value to your home, it becomes the focal point of any room. Use granite for kitchen counters, islands, back splash or bar tops. It can also be used for bathroom counter or vanity tops, sinks or fireplace surrounds

marble

A timeless classic, marble is a beautiful looking natural stone that features elegant and unique veining. Add a touch of luxury and extravagance to your home without sacrificing your budget

what is it?

Marble is a natural stone that is formed as a result of limestone crystallizing over time under heat and pressure.
Most recognizable for its delicate and unique veining, marble offers a beautiful, timeless and classic look

luxury meets affordability

While marble exudes elegance and luxury, it is actually quite affordable compared to other natural stones. Carrara marble is one of the least expensive natural stone countertop options on the market

where to use it

Despite being a soft stone, this material is relatively durable and resistant to heat, but is more vulnerable to damage or scratches. Take note that it is more porous than quartz or granite and does require consistent care and re-sealing a few times a year. It is, however, an excellent choice for kitchen islands, vanities, tables, walls and fireplace surrounds
