What is granite?

What about quartz patterns?
With the look of natural stone, minus the maintenance, these surfaces give granite a run for its money. In the past, the biggest knock against quartz was that it lacked the patterns and color variations you get with natural stone. But that’s a moot point now, with all the manufacturers offering multihued slabs with enough flecks, swirls, and random patterning to make them almost indistinguishable from the real thing. They were once available only with a polished finish; now you can get one with a honed, sandblasted, or embossed treatment. So if it’s the look of matte limestone, textured slate, or glossy granite that you want, there’s a quartz countertop for you. Read on for help picking one to match your budget, your cooking and cleaning needs, and your style.
- We set up a time for to visit your home to take some measurements, present some samples and guide you thru the process, or send us a sketch for quote purposes.
- You will get a price quote. Once we know the complexity of the installation, including the edge profile, number of slabs, and cutout details, we can quote the actual cost of the entire job.
- We will get the slab from the distributor or direct from the manufacturer and shape it to your specs in about a week. If you’re using multiple slabs, consider asking us to match the patterns between the slabs.
- Installation is our last step. We lay the slab directly on top of cabinets. It’s held in place with silicone-based construction adhesive, and any seams between slabs are filled with color-matched epoxy resin. Undermount sinks are installed with clips that attach to the underside of the countertop. Expect installation for a typical kitchen to take from a few hours to a day.
The non-porous nature of quartz countertops means resealing every few months is not necessary. Cleaning is also simple – wiping with a damp cloth takes care of all types of spills.
