Which Natural Stone is Right for You?
Unsure what type of stone will work best for you? We’ll help you select the material that will work best for you and your family.
Granite is extremely hard and Resists chips and scratches. Since granite is naturally formed by pressure and heat, they resist heat very well. Although many put hot pots directly on the surface, we recommend using potholders or a trivet. Additionally, granite countertops are stain-resistant when properly sealed.
Quartzite combines the elegant look of marble with similar hardness and durability to granite. Additionally, it has a high resistance etching. If sealed quartzite countertops are easy to clean and maintain. Although quartzite is strong and durable, it’s still prone to scratching so make sure to use a cutting board.
Marble is perhaps the most timeless and luxurious countertop material available. There’s a richness and character that other stones don’t have. Since marble remains cool, it’s an excellent surface for baking. However, marble is more porous and softer than granite. Oil, wine, and acids penetrate the stone very quickly and are hard, if not impossible, to remove. Additionally, knives can scratch the surface, and heavy pots may chip the marble. Marble isn’t as risky of choice in the bathroom. However, it’s best to be cautious with nail polish, liquid makeup, and other colored products that can stain.
