The Answers to All Your Questions

When it comes to investing in creating or upgrading your kitchen and bath, we understand that you have a lot of questions. The following are some commonly asked questions to help you narrow down your search for the best countertop contractor for your project. We certainly hope it’s us!

What is the distinction between marble and granite? What should I do?

The primary distinction between granite and marble is that granite is a solid substance generated deep below the earth's core, whereas marble is derived from sediments beneath the seafloor. After millions of years, both consolidate into stone, but the mineral makeup of the two stones causes marble and granite to respond differently to various chemicals and household cleansers.

How to get the most accurate quote?

We request prospective clients to supply us with a broad description of the project as well as personal information such as name, town, state, zip code, phone number, and, if known, the name of the stone and the desired edge finish. We may then analyze the exact data and provide an estimate for the project. This information can be faxed to us or delivered to our showroom when the client visits our warehouse.

How does the ordering process work?

The entire process is optimized for both quality and speed. The customer begins by selecting a stone. The customer is then given an estimate based on their individual project. The client can then place a template order. Our clients may expect a normal turnaround time of two weeks or less from the time the template is created.

How to choose granite?

Granite is a kind of natural stone. It is extremely hard and robust, as well as heat and scratch resistance and ease of maintenance–in every way, it is the material of the future. Aside from its practicality, granite is quite adaptable in terms of style. It is available in a variety of colors and structural compositions; our yard has over 600 hues from which to pick on-site. Not all stones are precisely the same. Each lot will have distinct qualities due to the granite.

Can you explain how countertop seams are handled?

Seams are made where the two pieces of stone are put together. The seams are joined with epoxy that is mixed with the color that matches the stone. Then the joined area is smoothened so that only a very thin line is visible.
