Care & Maintenance
Granite is a natural stone and as such can crack or break with excessive force. We strongly recommend that you keep this in mind while chopping or using heavy materials near your granite. Care should also be taken with items that are burnt or have extreme heat as granite can be seared or scorched. Should you experience a crack or break, we can also offer you a repair service for nominal fees. Granite will require an easy to use liquid sealer product to be applied every three to six months to maintain its water resistance and shine. Our Installation Technicians can provide you with their granite sealer of choice with pricing available at your home.
Granite - Fast facts:
Granite is the hardest of all the natural stones and ideal for kitchen and countertop applications. It is resistant to staining (when regular sealer is applied), is scratch and heat resistant. Granite has the largest selection of all the stone choices. It is an extremely popular renovation and adds class, elegance, beauty and increases the value of your home. Granite is timeless.
Quartz - Fast facts:
Quartz is a non-porous, scratch resistant man made product. Quartz is an alternative to granite and is also virtually maintenance free (no regular sealer required). Slightly more expensive than Granite, Quartz has a contemporary look and is also a top choice for countertops, vanities and home applications.
Marble - Fast facts:
Marble is a rock composed of calcite, a crystalline form of calcium carbonate.
Many of the world's most famous sculptures are made of the prized white marbles, which are relatively soft and uniform in composition.
Ground marble is used in products such as some papers and paints and in toothpaste (listed as calcium carbonate).
Marble is porous; if untreated, oils will stain it easily. Its finish can also be damaged by acids.
