Countertop Material Options
Quartz Countertops – Quartz is the term used for engineered stone which is made of 93% natural minerals combined with resins to create a hard, rock-like surface for countertops. Quartz is the trendiest option for countertops and is supplied by a variety of companies including Caesarstone, Corian, ENVI, Hanstone, LG, MSI, Mont, Silestone, and Wilsonart. With so many options, the price range varies as much as the availability of color and pattern variations. Quartz is an extremely durable choice and as such many brands provide long-term warranties.
Granite Countertops– Real 100% granite is quarried directly from the earth and sliced into slabs. Slab granite is quarried throughout the world and shipped to the U.S. for fabrication. Once found only in mansions, slab granite can now be found in all types of homes. Part of the reason is that there are so many wonderful options. Some granite is widely available because it is plentiful so it is quite cost effective. Other options are referred to as exotic granite which have more variation and are more rare and thus more costly. Slab granite is not associated with brand names but with a short visit to our showroom, you can learn about the wide range of options and see a variety of choices.
Solid Surface Countertops – Customers have come to love the options and durability of Solid Surface countertops. Solid Surface Countertops are a man-made material consisting entirely of acrylic resin and pigments. Its main appeal is that it can create nearly seamless countertops, unlike any other countertop surface. It's extremely low porosity keeps bacteria away, promoting a cleaner and more sanitary countertop. With selections from Corian and Wilsonart, you can achieve a unique style on a budget that your wallet will appreciate.
Laminate Countertops – Laminate is usually the most budget friendly option for your surfaces. With suppliers such as Formica and Wilsonart, the color and pattern choices are virtually endless. New techniques for creating the patterns including digital imaging have brought laminate options to a whole new level with much more contemporary looks. For these reasons, laminate has been regaining it's popularity and has been featured on HGTV.
