What is the best type of granite?
Natural granite stone is considered the “Rolls Royce” of all countertop materials. Even marble is having a difficult time challenging the intricate veining and color combinations of this lucrative stone. Nonetheless, there is a new contender in the market, that is, engineered granite stone.
In our showroom, we can show the MOST POPULAR GRANITE COLORS to spice up your kitchen and bath makeover. For petite kitchens and baths, we always recommend WHITE GRANITE COUNTERTOPS. Choosing a white or neutral color would effectively create a spacious, clean, and cool feeling in your area.
GRANITE BATHROOM COUNTERTOPS made of pale colors (such as beige, gray, white, and light-brown) is most ideal for tiny spaces. It lifts your room’s brightness and modern appeal. With that, you can save on lights to boost the brightness of the area. Oftentimes, light-colored countertops pair well with stainless steel finishes and darker wood tones for your cabinetry.
You can never expect a consistent plain white color from natural granite because of the presence of other minerals. The common variations you will see are milky white and opaque white granite with speckles of other pigments. It can have a white background with veining or spots of gray, black, red, blue, or brown.
In contrast, BLACK GRANITE COUNTERTOPS is also a true classic beauty. Its deep rich black color exudes an excellent focal point in your kitchen and bath redo. Similar to white granite, you can also see other pigments sprawling around the black background.
If you want a dramatic appeal in your fresh kitchen and bath, then we can install the best BLACK GRANITE COUNTERTOPS in your home. It provides a chic and strong contrast with your chrome-plated and sparkling finishes.
We have many variations of black granite, that is, smoked, crisp black, galaxy-like, and rich deep black hue. We can create a stunning contrast by installing white or neutral-colored cabinets in your space. Some of the best black granite include Black Galaxy, Uba Tuba, and Black Pearl.
Which is better granite or quartz?
There is an endless debate regarding which is a better choice, granite, or quartz. We offer both stones for the remodeling services we perform for our clients. Truth to be told, there is no right or wrong decision of choosing either granite or quartz for your countertops.
Different customers will have varying preferences for their countertop material. Nevertheless, we always evaluate their preference and the other details for renovating their kitchen and bath. Still, we will outline some differences between these two prominent stones.
In terms of strength, quartz is a few notches stronger than natural granite. This is due to the added polymer resins in the quartz’s composition. Fortunately, both can effectively take on your high-traffic kitchen.
In terms of heat resistance, granite has more advantages because it is innately acquainted with extreme heat and pressure. Quartz engineered stone forms burnt black spots when you place hot pans directly on its surface.
When it comes to aesthetics and elegance, both stones are award-winning. The determining factor would rely on the preference of the client. If you want higher style and color consistency, then go for quartz. Meanwhile, if you like the exotic style and color variation, then granite can effectively satisfy you.
Generally, granite comes at a higher upfront cost than quartz, because of its scarce supply. The more exotic the granite color you will choose, the pricier it will be. On the other side, you need a professional installer for granite and quartz to make sure there’s no mistake in the process.
Our GRANITE COUNTERTOPS INSTALLATION abides with the highest protocol and standards imposed by the city, state, and the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA). We will secure the necessary permits before starting renovating your home. A similar thing goes for quartz countertop installation.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
No matter how impeccably strong granite is, its elegance and condition won’t last for a lifetime. Once we finish installing your granite counters, we will give you some tips for your GRANITE COUNTERTOPS MAINTENANCE.
Annual or periodic sealing maintenance is required for natural granite because it has a porous surface. Unlike quartz engineered stone, granite is prone to stains and mildews, so we seal them off before installation.
Both quartz and granite require less cleaning when food crumbs and spills are present on its surface. You only need to use a mild dishwashing liquid and a soft sponge to wipe down dirt on your granite and quartz countertops.
RETURN ON INVESTMENT
Many homeowners choose to install quartz and granite because 50%-80% of its total cost can be added to the total value of your property. Our trained designers and stone specialists shall help you choose and install the best stone design to compliment your remodeling theme.
