What is a sealer and how often do I need to seal my tops?


We treat all of our natural granite countertops with a 15-year impregnating sealer at the time of installation. This premium sealer provides exceptional stain protection, allowing you time to clean up spills.


Will granite vary in color?


Yes. The appeal of granite is the uniqueness of each piece. Colors vary from slab to slab and even within the individual piece. Because of this, it is best if a customer visits us and hand selects their slab.


How are quartz countertops produced?


Quartz is one of the hardest minerals in the world. Engineers combine approximately 93% natural quartz with resins to create a product that is extremely durable (stain, scratch, and heat resistant) and beautiful.


Does brand matter when it comes to selecting a countertop?


Every brand has its own unique characteristics. Our design specialists will help you to choose the best product for your project.


Will quartz vary in color?


Natural quartz is more consistent in color and pattern than natural granite, so your selection can be made easier with a smaller sample. As with any natural material, color and pattern can change within an individual slab.
