We specialize in any custom surface. This means that we can design, fabricate and install any stone material on any surface. Stone materials include Granite, Marble. Quartz, Onyx, Soapstone, Limestone and more. We provide residential and commercial services.
Made from one of the hardest minerals on earth, quartz countertops are arguably the most durable option for kitchens. They're also some of the most eye-catching. They come in a wide variety of colors, including fire-engine red and apple green, as well as earthy browns, blacks, and creams, with sparkles and veining for the look of granite or marble. But unlike natural-stone slabs, which are mined, these slabs are engineered in a factory. Their primary ingredient is ground quartz (about 94 percent), combined with polyester resins to bind it and pigments to give it color. For some designs, small amounts of recycled glass or metallic flecks are added to the mix. The resins also help make these counters stain and scratch resistant and nonporous, so they never need to be sealed. Compare that with granite, the reigning king of high-end countertops, which typically requires a new protective top coat at least once a year.
In the past, the biggest knock against quartz was that it lacked the patterns and color variations you get with natural stone. But that's a moot point now, with all the manufacturers offering multihued slabs with enough flecks, swirls, and random patterning to make them almost indistinguishable from the real thing. They were once available only with a polished finish; now you can get one with a honed, sandblasted, or embossed treatment. So if it's the look of matte limestone, textured slate, or glossy granite that you want, there's a quartz countertop for you.
We have been installing custom surfaces and countertops made from Granite. We offer over 175 different types of granite from all over the world. Granite is a formed beneath the earth's crust by magma flowing into deep pockets and cooling under tremendous pressure. It is highly crystallized and is comprised from Quartz, Feldspar and Mica. The result is an igneous rock with wide variations in color, texture and veining that contribute to its natural beauty. Granite generally comes from quarries from Brazil, China and India. Granite is very hard and is highly scratch resistant. We have many slabs in stock and ready for installation and delivery.
We specialize in installing custom marble surfaces and countertops. Marble is formed from superheated limestone, which results in its crystalline structure. We carry over 30 different marble products. Marble countertops offer classic beauty and elegance. Marble lasts forever and has a natural stone look making it a great choice.
We install Quartzite for countertops. Quartzite is a very hard metamorphic rock that originated as sandstone. Through a process of high heating and pressurization sandstone is transformed into Quartzite, an extremely strong and durable natural stone. When heated, individual quartz pieces recrystallize giving it a beautiful and decorative sparkling pattern. Quartzite is ideal for any countertop surface due to its strength and long-lasting cornposition.
What are the pros and cons about granite counter-tops?
The choosing of a material for your kitchen countertops or bathroom vanities should be done with extreme caution since these surfaces can drastically shape the look and feel of a room. Remember that these surfaces must also endure a large amount of everyday wear and tear. Like other types of countertop materials, granite has pros and cons that must be weighed. There are several features that are unique to granite that help contribute to its recent rise in popularity.
Granite and quartz surfaces are very durable and capable of lasting a very long time. They are both heat, scratch, chemical and stain resistant. Quartz surfaces are engineered from natural quartz while granite, in and of itself, is a natural stone. Both surfaces are very low maintenance. While granite is limited to the colors nature has produced, quartz is artificially colored throughout for a custom and unique look. While granite and quartz are in the upper tiers of cost, they will give you the longevity and durability associated with their price.
Quartz is a manufactured stone and it is hard to duplicate the veining and pattern look you get from genuine marble or granite. Quartz is slightly more expensive than granite.
Granite is porous, so staining is possible without a quality sealer.
