Granite is a multi-colored igneous rock with a wide variety of visible grains. It forms from the slow crystallization of magma below Earth’s surface. Granite is composed mainly of quartz and feldspar with minor amounts of mica, amphiboles, and other minerals. It appears dimensional with layers, striations, and unique colorings. Granite provides unmatched beauty, durability, and quality in the kitchen, bathroom, or other for other surfaces.
Quartz countertops are engineered by combining ground quartz (a natural hard mineral) and resins, polymers, and pigments. The result is a very hard, strong and durable material that is very low in porosity so that moisture, bacteria, and soil have no place to settle. These man-made slabs are then baked and polished to a glossy shine. Quartz is easily cut and installed, making it a great countertop solution for any room in your home.
Laminate countertops are manufactured by bonding layers of paper, resins, and plastic. They have a wide range of colors, patterns, and appearances to fit any budget and application. They are easily customized to whatever size your countertop and have many edging and backsplash variations.
