Granite is a natural material, lasts for many years, and increases your home’s value. Marble is a classic look typically chosen for one section of the countertop. Quartz requires minimal maintenance and is resistant to heat, scratches, and stains. Quartzite is known for its sturdiness and is created from a natural stone. Soapstone is a natural material resistant to heat, stains, and bacteria. Choose a countertop you will be able to enjoy for years to come!
