At The Granite Guy, we’re your top source for all things countertops, so if you’re remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, we can help you outfit the space with the perfect option. Below we’ve listed some of our favorite countertop materials right now and why they’d be a great fit for your home:
- Quartz – Practically maintenance-free, quartz countertops don’t have a porous surface, so they are resistant to stains, acid, and scratches. They also don’t need to be sealed like most natural stone countertops, and they are available in a variety of patterns and colors.
- Granite – Even though quartz has started to rival granite in terms of popularity, granite remains a top choice for the majority of homeowners. A natural material that is highly durable, each slab of granite boasts a different pattern.
- Marble – If you’re going for a modern design, marble is your answer. Not only is the grey-toned veining in Calcatta or Carrara marble beautiful, but it also helps hide light stains and wear.
- Quartzite- While you may think quartz and quartzite would be similar, they are actually quite different. Quartzite is a natural stone that needs to be sealed periodically, but it is even more durable than granite, making it a great option for those who want countertops that are scratch and heat-resistant.
