Different Types of Stone for Different Needs
Granite is a naturally hard stone that comes from the earth. Each slab has its own pattern, whether variegated or more uniform, and each is truly unique. Streaked granite can be used to impart a sense of movement to a room. Granite can be dramatic and get much attention in a kitchen or bathroom. Different types of granite may need to be sealed every few years to retain its stain resistance.
These stones are typically 93% quartzite and 7% resin-epoxy. Because it is an engineered stone, it has a low porosity and therefore some anti microbial properties. Quartz comes in a wider variety of colors than granite and has patterns that are fairly consistent, so matching stones is never a problem. Because of its consistency, it will not detract as much attention from other "bling" elements in your kitchen.
Marble is a softer stone and its natural inclusions can lend an ambience to its room. Marble is expressive, but not to the degree of some granites or quartzes. More porous than the other stones, it may be better suited to finishing a bathroom than the kitchen, and can require more maintenance than an engineered stone like quartz.
This is not a Definitive List
Each stone has its own individual characteristics. Please take the time to visit our showroom and walk with us through our stone yard. Your perfect countertop stone may reveal itself!

* We have the ability to create templates
* Stone Cutters
The template is so important because it is a pattern of your kitchen. Unlike other measurement methods,a wood template is actual physical dimensions. This way,there are no errors in translating the cuts to the granite. No problems with scale,no loss of data,simply trace! The template gets the countertops done right the first time,every time.
Stone Cutting and Fabrication:
The template is taken back to our custom shop and the cutting can begin. We do not rely on computers to decide where to cut the stone. This gives us the advantage of "hand-matching" the color of your counters and the direction of the grain.
No Cross Grained Stone:
We never cross grain your countertops to conserve material. Instead,we'll cut into the adjacent stone in the set so that the colors and pattern in your counters flow in one direction. This lets the finished product appear seamless,and the overall effect on the room is absolutely breathtaking
All counter edges are finished on the bottom as well as the top. Polishing is done with air and water instead of stone. This impart
