What is Marble?

Marble is metamorphosed sedimentary carbonate rock. Limestone or dolomite (carbonate rocks) are the typical base minerals. The recrystallization of the carbonate minerals result in Marble.

 

Often, the original structure of the carbonate rocks are modified during the metamorphism to render the marble unrecognizable from its original state. The swirling and veins in marble often result from mineral impurities which are in layers in the original limestone or dolomite.

 

What is granite?

Granite is normally a coarse grained igneous rock that is comprised of quartz, feldspars and micas. The quartz will be be the lighter color minerals with the remaining consisting of feldspars and muscovite. The dark minerals are hornblende or biotite. Granite is by far the most common rock found in the outer crust of the planet. Granite is formed by the cooling of magma in the ground. Granite is an outstanding material for countertops.

As the name implies it is a countertop product that is made of quartz and resins. Before granite slabs were resined Engineered Stone had one major advantage over its natural counterpart, it was difficult to stain. Now with the advent of resined slabs that advantage is gone. The primary difference is the appearance. Man made products come in a large range of consistent colors which do not occur naturally in nature.

 

You often see engineered stone being used in commercial setting or contemporary ones. You get  to decide which look is best for your project.

What is Quartz?

Quartz is also know as engineered stone.

Do you remove countertops?

Yes we can remove and dispose of your old counters.  We use the latest technology in template system.  This technology allows us to get the measurements of your kitchen counter tops with out removing the old counter tops. That way our customer will have the convenience of not being with out a kitchen during the fabrication process.

We can remove and dispose of  your countertops!

Yes, we have one of the largest inventory of granite remnants around! We also have remnants and half slabs of engineered stone, marble, limestone, onyx and of course granite and many other types of stone remnants.

 

Stop by and see if we have the stone you want!

 

 

Do you have remnants?

We stock remnants for use on smaller projects.

We do it for you.....You will not need to worry about if for years after the countertops are  installed. Sealers are solids that have been emulsified in a solvent. They are designed to penetrate the stone taking the solids with them. When the solvent evaporates, the molecules lock into the stone and seal it.

 

Combine one good coat of a quality sealer (which we will do for you in our shop) with the resin applied by the factory you will have a very stain resistant top that will be virtually maintenance free. Rarely, if ever will you need to seal granite that has been resined and properly sealed.

 

Over time, in the unlikely you do see some water absorb into the stone simply reseal. We can help you if your countertops need to be resealed.  (note: certain types of marble can etch even when sealed....ask our staff for more information.

Does the price of the stone effect the "quality" of it?

Often people make the mistake of assuming that if it is more expensive then the slab is better quality. Often in our industry stone cost has more to do with availability, competitive quarries...in other words; Does color come from multiple locations creating a price competitive market? So the simple answer is: No....the cost has nothing to do with the structural quality. The more complex answer is Yes.

 

For example; Santa Cecilia Granite is available from many sources so the base price of the granite is fairly low. In that group there is: First Choice Material, which is has nicest even looking coloring and movement. Then there is Second Choice Material: This will look close to first choice but have minor color variations which make it slightly less expensive then the first choice. The final classification is Commercial Grade Material: This class of stone will have things that make it look less then desirable, spots/eggs of color that do not match the “Norm” for that material. This is the lowest cost.

 

These ratings are subjective and have to do with what the granite looks like. At the end of the day all three classifications will perform perfectly for granite countertops in your kitchen, but the “quality” is based on the subjective appearance.
