What We Use
When selecting your ideal countertop material, it’s important to consider functionality, and what it will have to withstand. In the kitchen, the countertop needs to hold up against extended periods of high heat, knife marks, scratches, and chips. Ideally, you want something that looks great for years to come.
Quartz countertops are man-made combinations of stone infused with polymer resin. They’re beautiful additions to any apartment or home and can be made to look like marble. They’re also less prone to scratching and staining.
Granite forms from a variety of natural minerals, ensuring that each granite counter is unique and unlike any other. They offer fantastic heat resistance and will not scratch with knife contact. Also, most granite counters are factory sealed eliminating the hassle of annual upkeep.
When it comes to countertops, marble is a timeless luxury. They typically are very colorful and contain unique veining. The disadvantages of marble are it being a softer material that’s prone to scratching, its ability to stain, and the need for annual sealing.
Not to be confused with artificial Quartz, Quartzite is actually originating as a natural stone. Through the process of heat and pressure, it is made into remarkably durable and beautiful patterns.
