Why Choose a Stone Countertop?
Quality Resilience and Elegance

The resilience, distinctive elegant appearance and convenience of stone countertops is legendary. No other material at once offers such quality and convenience.

Stone countertops add immediate and lasting value to your home or business while providing your kitchen, bathroom, office or other rooms with a unique, distinctive and elegant appearance.

Stone can be purchased in a wide variety of overall colors, edge designs and treatments to match the overall theme, design and decor of the room.

Caring for stone countertops is a breeze. Stone is the most resilient material very easy to clean and maintain and is virtually impervious to abrasions, stains, and extreme heat.

When properly sealed liquids cannot penetrate stone countertops and are easily sanitized. For this reason stone is more resistant to bacterial, viral and fungal contamination then traditional countertops.

Uncompromising Beauty and Durability

Granite is an extraordinarily hard and durable coarse-grained stone that comes in a vast array of colors depending on it's composition, and interestingly is exclusive to the Earth's continental crust where it forms.

With it's consistent grain, and legendary durability, granite has become the stone of choice for residential and commercial applications. The diamond-like hardness of granite makes it virtually impervious to abrasions, stains and heat.

Classic Refinement and Beauty

Marble has become a cultural symbol of tradition and refined taste and adds a pure and graceful finish to any interior or exterior.

Marble is composed of metamorphosed limestone, and is one of the most popular stones in the world, with its typical pure white appearance, and brilliant lustrous finish made popular by ancient Greek and Roman artisans, architects and stone masons.

The word 'marble' derives from the Greek word 'mármaron' which means 'crystalline rock' or 'shining stone'. The refractive nature of Marble allows light to penetrate into the polished finish giving the stone a waxy, lifelike depth.

Marble is also available in many colored varieties, where the inlaid swirls and veins of color are due to various mineral impurities such as clay, silt, sand, iron oxides, which were present as grains or layers in the original limestone.

Marble does not have the resilience and heat proof qualities of granite however due to its grain and classic look, it is the countertop of choice in bathrooms, backsplashes and other accent areas.

Unique Crystalline and Exclusive

Quartzite is a beautiful crystalline stone, which when polished has a brilliant shimmering appearance.

Quartzite incidentally is the most commonly used minerals in the making of jewelry and hardstone carvings throughout Europe and the Middle East.

Due to it's unique appearance, and large spectrum of colors and textures, the stone has become a popular material for countertops for residential and commercial installations.

Quartzite is available in a wide variety of colors from reddish orange, brown, gray, pink, mint green, yellow, violet and gold making it quite versatile to match a wide spectrum of decor.

Quartzite does not have the same resilience as granite, and some care and precautions must be taken with heat and liquids, but the surface can be sealed to increase it's durability. Trivets and other boards and stands are recommended to protect quartz from the high heat from cookware.
