Each piece is priced differently per square foot and any edge detail will be an additional cost. Come in any time during business hours to view the pieces we have and get a quote.
Granite: The most popular choice for kitchen countertops because it is slightly harder than marble so it is more resistant to chips and scratches. Granite will show a "grain" and has a large variety of color. Depending on the slab, granite tends to be the most cost efficient option.
Marble: This stone is very porous which makes it vulnerable to acidic food and liquid (lemon, vinegar, wine). It is a high maintenance stone because it can scratch, stain and etch easily if not properly cared for. For this reason, it is not usually recommended for kitchens and high traffic areas. Marble will show "veining" as opposed to grains which can also be easily replicated in Quartz products which are easier to care for. Depending on the slab, marble tends to be more expensive than granite.
Soapstone: Can handle the highest amount of heat. It is made of talc so it is softer than other stones and therefore can scratch easily. Besides that, it is stain, chemical, heat and water resistant. It will typically come in grey colors and works well for someone looking for a rustic look.
Quartzite: More durable than granite, but also more expensive. Can have the appearance of marble, but the properties of granite. It withstands heat well, but it can be chipped and dented.
Quartz: Man-made stone that is non-porous and formulated to stand up to the harshest environments. It does not require sealing and is the easiest to maintain. There are many color options available and is a good alternative for someone who likes the marble look with less maintenance. It is stain, scratch, chemical, dent and chip resistant however the resin in quartz can melt when exposed to excessive heat.
