Stone and Quartz Countertops
Quartz comes in various colors and can mimic the look of stone. If you love the look of granite or marble but prefer low maintenance, you get both with quartz. While natural stone must be resealed annually to avoid staining and to promote longevity, quartz doesn’t require any special care. While both materials are durable, quartz is harder than granite, and it’s nearly indestructible. Since quartz isn’t porous, it resists bacteria making it an ideal choice for kitchens and bathrooms.
Quartz countertops combine the style and beauty of natural stone without worry and maintenance. Quartz is non-porous and scratch-resistant, so it will stand up to tomatoes, oil, wine, coffee, and anything else you subject it to. If you’re looking for durability and ease of care, Quartz is an excellent choice.
Marble countertops bring a classic, timeless look to your home. However, marble is also softer and more porous than other materials which means it’s easily stained and etched by oils and citric acid. For those who don’t mind the natural wear and patina that comes with having marble, it’s a wonderful option.
Granite countertops score a seven on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, making it one of the most durable surfaces. While you can cut on granite, it isn’t recommended. Doing so will dull your knives and sometimes leave behind a metal residue that can be difficult to remove. In general, darker granites are very dense and less porous, while lighter granites are more porous. When properly sealed, granite is stain-resistant.
Quartzite countertops have the look of marble but are much more durable. Since it’s a harder stone, it’s resistant to scratching, heat, water, and acids that cause etching.
Ceramic & Porcelain
Ceramic tile is constructed using natural clay, sand, and water. It’s molded into square or rectangular form and baked to remove moisture. Similarly, porcelain tile is also made of clay, but typically dense types of clay. It is also baked at a higher temperature.
Glass & Metallic
Glass and metal products can be applied to many residential, commercial, and hospitality projects. Architects, designers, and property owners choose glass and metal because the products created with them can be customized to fit any traditional or modern look.
