Hard Surface Materials
Quartz is engineered stone. It’s a beautiful material, with a surface comparable (and sometimes superior) in beauty to granite and marble. Quartz also offers greater durability than most other stones and it’s much more affordable than granite or marble.
Reasons to Choose Quartz
- It comes in a much wider range of color options while maintaining the high-end, luxurious appearance.
- Quartz shares the durability of granite and quartzite but less susceptible to chipping or cracks – and is also said to have a “softer” feel to it, compared to it’s natural stone counterparts.
- Quartz is a man-made, non-porous material consisting of natural ground quartz stone, resins, polymers and pigments, making it very able to resist staining from liquid spills.
For homeowners who love the look of light marble, but need the durability of granite, quartz is the solution. Sealing is highly recommended to maintain it’s appearance and stain resistance. It’s important to note that quartz is not as heat resistant as granite and will require the use of heat pads or potholders when placing hot objects on its surface.
Quartzite is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock made from sandstone and quartz crystals that have been compressed under high heat and pressure along a tectonic plate inside the earth. Quartzite slabs can be mined and cut to use as bathroom or kitchen countertops, desks, and backsplashes. Quartzite is also used in construction because it is extremely hard, heat resistant, and water resistant.
Reasons to Choose Quartzite
- Quartzite is comparable to marble in appearance but is less expensive.
- Scratches are less likely to occur, and if they do, the natural patterns and veining makes for a easy cover up.
While strong and durable, quartzite is not indestructible. Sealing is recommended at the time of installation and should be re-applied at least once a year. Cutting boards and potholders are also recommended as extreme use could damage the seal, and possibly the stone surface as well. As with all natural stone surfaces, liquid spills should be wiped up as soon as possible to avoid staining.
Granite is an igneous rock formed of a cooled lava. It displays mineral grains more prominently than other stones, making it a perfect variety for both indoor and outdoor use. Customers often choose granite because of its durability, beauty and price point.
Reasons to Choose Granite
- Granite is a natural stone product with a timeless look and appeal.
- It lies near the top of the hardness scale and will withstand heavy use, direct heat and is very resistant to stains when properly sealed.
- In the kitchen, you can find yourself safely placing hot pans or cutting vegetables directly on the surface without damage.
Granite countertops are one of the best stone materials to use for kitchen and bath countertops, but there are some steps needed to ensure their beauty will last. The biggest issue lies with countertops not being properly sealed, or the sealant wearing off and not being resealed. Since granite is a porous material, it will absorb juice, oils or colored liquids (such as wine) causing a stain that might be impossible to remove. Be sure to have your countertop properly sealed and ask your design specialist about the frequency you may need to reseal the surface.
Marble is timeless. Imbued in history and culture since the Greeks and Romans first used it, it represents a refined taste. Prized for its aesthetic appeal, marble is ideal for just about anywhere in your home.
Reasons to Choose Marble
- Most customers looking for a unique, clean, contemporary slab for their countertop are drawn the beauty of marble.
- Some slabs are very consistent in their overall appearance, however, marble is a natural stone and no two slabs will be identical.
Although marble shares a high heat resistance with granite, it is a much more porous material and is very susceptible to liquid staining or scratches. Lack of, or improperly applied sealant is almost a guaranteed invitation for stains, which is why it’s important to keep this material properly sealed and maintained. Normal kitchen activities, such as cutting or placing heavy ceramic containers, can scratch or even chip the corners or surface. For these reasons, we do not recommend the use of marble as a kitchen countertop.
Completely and infinitely recyclable, stainless steel is the “green material” par excellence. In fact, within the construction sector, its actual recovery rate is close to 100%. Furthermore, it does not leach compounds that could modify its composition when in contact with elements like water. In addition to these environmental benefits, stainless steel is also aesthetically appealing, extremely hygienic, easy to maintain, highly durable and offers a wide variety of aspects.

Although this sink type requires the least amount of maintenance – light, regular cleanings are absolutely essential. Make a habit of quickly scrubbing the sink with a bit of soapy water and a sponge/rag after meal prep or dishwashing – it takes less than a minute, and makes a big difference!
Composite sinks make a beautiful addition to your kitchen. They are manufactured using a mix of granite stone dust and acrylic resins molded into sink form. The labels “composite stone” and “granite sink” are sometimes used interchangeably to describe either material.
When composite granite sinks are new, they include a durable factory finish and vibrant colors. Over time, it is more common to notice a white or chalky haze appearance with contrasting dark colors. It’s important to use the proper cleaners to deep clean and protect your new sink.
Sinks made of porcelain are known for their strength and durability. They can be slightly pricier but pay for themselves over the years because their durability. The reason why porcelain sinks are so popular among homeowners is because of its visual appeal and low maintenance.
To keep your porcelain in excellent condition, clean it weekly to prevent the buildup of grease, dirt, and soap scum. At least once a month, give your porcelain sinks a good deep-cleaning to maintain their beauty.
