Stone, quartz, quartzite, laminate, granite countertops, and more – the choice is yours!

Our talented design experts will assist you in choosing from a large variety of quality, name brand products in a range of countertop styles, materials and colors, all designed to fit your needs and budget.  Whether you choose a material we have in stock or special order we work with local fabricators to minimize the cost to you and simplify the process.

Granite Countertops: The Natural Choice.

Granite is by far the most popular natural stone countertop material. It comes in a wide variety of colors, ranging from vibrant blues to shades of brown, midnight black, deep red, and even mottled white. Granite countertops are also extremely durable, resistant to bacteria, and remarkably beautiful. If you’re looking for an affordable material that can provide a natural dramatic look and stand up to a great deal of heat and pressure, granite is the best option.

Quartz vs. Quartzite Countertops: The New Kids on the Block

Boasting the best qualities of laminate and stone countertops, quartz began appearing in U.S. homes just a few years ago after gaining popularity in Europe over the past decade.

Today, quartz countertops with a high-end look are in high-demand. Certain quartz countertop varieties are made of quarried slabs of natural stone. This new engineered material is created through a manufacturing process that mixes approximately 95 percent ground natural quartz with 5 percent polymer resins. The result is a super-hard, low-maintenance, scratch-resistant, natural stone-look that’s available in a dazzling array of colors. 

Quartz stone countertops also resist staining and corrosion from cooking oils, liquids and most household cleaning products. Plus, there’s no need for periodic resealing of the surface!

On the other hand, quartzite countertops are made from an incredibly hard metamorphic rock that comes from sandstone.  By utilizing high levels of heat and pressure the sandstone is transformed into Quartzite, an impressively strong and durable stone for the discerning countertop client.  During the heating process individual pieces of quartz recrystallize transforming them into a sparkling pattern of exquisite beauty.  And top it off, Quartzite is ideal for countertop composition due to its inherent strength and long lasting luster.  Therefore Quartzite is often chosen for its strength, show-stopping beauty and overall resilience.

Whether you prefer quartz or quartzite for your kitchen countertop choice; both natural and engineered stone offer higher color consistency and durability while being the easiest to maintain. 

Laminate Countertops: A Classic Solution

Plastic laminate countertops are durable, hard-wearing solutions that can survive many years in the toughest kitchens. Considering that plastic laminate is made primarily of kraft paper impregnated with resins, it’s a surprisingly resilient choice. Laminate countertops are available in hundreds of colors, dozens of patterns, and in various textures. They’re stain-resistant, scratch-resistant, and available in a matte finish or a variety of sheens depending on your preference.  And laminate countertops have the added benefit of being cost effective while providing a variety of looks that complete any new kitchen.
