Granite is often imported from Europe, Africa, Brazil and other regions of the world rich in natural stone. If you are looking to remodel your kitchen countertop, island, bathroom vanity top, or a bar, you would find that Granite is one of the most popular choices. Granite is an igneous rock originated from deep in the Earth’s crust – and once cut, polished and sealed – Granite is impervious to scratches, heat, etching, staining, or weathering.
Granite kitchen countertops are unique because no two pieces of granite are exactly the same; therefore granite provides an interesting design element and adds certain richness and texture to your kitchen not found in other surfaces. The durability of Granite and its top class look is unmatchable when it comes to remodeling. Granite’s look will not depreciate over time and it will add value and an elegant finish to any surface. The hardness of granite is rivaled only by the hardness of diamonds. In fact diamonds are used to cut and polish granite. The ease of maintenance is an added plus. And with our 15 Year Industry Warranty Sealer services now offered, you can rest assured that a Granite countertop is an investment that will last a lifetime if treated properly.
Quartz is a manufactured man made material that when combined with pigmentation and a binding agent becomes a beautiful and durable manufactured countertop. Unlike granite, marble, or any other surface, quartz is a non-natural stone that comes in very unique consistent colors and patterns that add beauty to any surface.
Quartz is believed to be more resilient than Granite, even in its crude form. It is made up mostly of quartz as the name implies, but also varies with other minerals to create a very hard substance and is extremely durable to use. To top it off, quartz is a non-porous material, meaning that quartz does not trap bacteria, nor does it easily stain. It does not require any sealer or surface conditioner to prevent staining or deterioration. Granite Gallery Inc. is a quartz-certified member partner with Caesarstone, Silestone, Chroma, Hanstone, and Cambria.
Like Granite, Marble gives you the opportunity to choose from a variety of color, sizes and exotic looks; it is a great adornment addition. Marble has a bright look, and also brings with it an inherent elegance and timelessness. It truly adds an element of high-end definition to a kitchen. Like many stone tiles, marble has high maintenance requirements. It must be sealed and cleaned regularly with either a mild detergent solution or a product specially designed for marble or the toxins could severely damage the stone. It is not recommended to set your drink down on a marble surface as it will leave a ‘ring’ and any spills should be wiped up immediately as they can stain or etch marble’s porous surface.
Marble is waterproof and heatproof and although it is known to be expensive, it provides a luxurious look to place on an island or a kitchen counter top that is appealing to the eye. If you’re looking to add an elegant and exotic touch to your kitchen or bathroom, marble is the way to go.
