There are a variety of different countertops available on the market today. Some countertops are made from slabs of natural stone, which means they look completely unique and have all the natural features and imperfections of real rock. Others are made using an engineered process that involves mixing stone particles with resins, pigments, and other ingredients to create a more uniform looking countertop that’s less porous. In addition to engineered and natural stone countertops, there are also breakdowns in terms of type. You’ll find granite, quartz, and engineered marble options in our showroom.
Granite countertops are made from slabs of natural granite. They come in a variety of styles to accommodate different kitchen and bathroom designs. Granite is prized for its strength, scratch-resistance, and ability to handle heat and moisture. Since it’s made from a natural material, granite countertops are completely unique and feature their own color variations, veining, and mineral deposits. They also may have micro fissures and porous areas, which is why granite countertops often need to be regularly sealed to lock out moisture and stains, and protect the surface.
Unlike granite, quartz countertops are man-made. Instead of being cut from natural rock, they are created by mixing quartz powder, resins, and other materials together. The result is an incredibly durable countertop that is non-porous and uniform. This makes quartz very water-repellent and easy to sanitize. It also doesn’t need as much maintenance as natural stone countertops over the years.
Like quartz, engineered marble countertops are made through a synthetic process. In this case, marble stone powder is mixed with resins and pigments to recreate the beautiful creamy swirls that natural marble is known for. However, unlike slabs of real rock, this engineered process makes the countertop more waterproof and easier to maintain. This makes it perfect for bathroom vanities, where moisture build-up behind the sink and in other areas is a common issue.
