We are a full-service, granite, quartz and marble countertops fabrication and installation company with a wide range of expertise in dealing with virtually any type of project, Among the services we offer are:
Granite – One of the most popular of the natural stones for kitchen counter use, granite is a very durable material. It formed from magma under the Earth’s crust for millions of years under extreme pressure, which accounts for its durability. Its composition varies greatly, but its basic components are quartz and feldspar. It is the favorite material of ancient builders in Egypt and Greece, primarily because it is the most abundant rock type in the world, which is why it is used for structures meant to last forever such as the Pyramids of Egypt and the Stonehenge. Many of the monuments today are also made of granite, including the Mount Rushmore Memorial.
Marble – Marble is a metamorphic rock, formed from broken down dolomite or limestone, which is why the predominant color of marble is white. It is a relatively soft rock, easily carved and polished into a mellow patina, which is why sculptors use it frequently to make their works of art. As a countertop, it is the ideal stone for pastry tables because it is constantly a few degrees cooler than the ambient temperature. As a dimension stone, it is valued in the home for its elegant beauty.
Limestone – A sedimentary stone, limestone is typically formed from the remains of marine animals and found in deep riverbeds and other bodies of fresh water. It is becoming increasingly popular with homeowners and interior designers for external and internal use in the home This sedimentary material is becoming very popular with designers and homeowners because of its soft and smooth appearance.
Travertine – Travertine is actually form of limestone, but typically comes in more colors than limestone does. It is a common material for flooring, both indoors and outdoors. Travertine is often found in limestone caves and hot springs, and has a distinctive circular or fibrous formation.
Quartz – Quartz stones are engineered stones, meaning they are manufactured by man rather than formed by nature. However, at the core of these stones is natural quartz crystals, which are among the hardest minerals in the world rating a 7 in the Mohs hardness scale (diamonds rate a 10). These are available under a variety of commercial brands and come in many different designs and colors. The most popular quartz stones are those that mimic the look of natural stones such as granite and marble.
