Stone Countertops, stunning and timeless, are a solid investment for any home. Available in a vast array of colors, textures and patterns, there are many nuances to the different types of materials. It’s important to get familiar with how the different materials look, what they're made of and how they compare to other types of surfaces. This will help you determine which material, natural stone or engineered stone, is the best option for your kitchen, bath or other application.
When selecting a natural stone, such as granite, marble, and quartzite, or an engineered stone material like quartz and recycled glass for your project, there are a few things to consider in your decision making process. The amount of material required, seam placement, the application in which your surface will be used, the color and character of the stone, as well as suggested care or maintenance, are all important criteria to consider while selecting the material to be used for your stone countertops.
