We live in a weird world...

…countertops define bathrooms and kitchens. Pick the wrong type or color, and the value of your home can drop drastically. Countertop trends change by the decade, but the two most popular options for homes right now are granite and quartz. 

GRANITE

Let's start with Granite countertops

Granite is an igneous rock. It is formed from the slow crystallization of magma or molten lava below the Earth’s surface. It is composed of natural quartz or silica, feldspars or aluminosilicates, mica and other organic minerals. Most granite countertops come from quarries in Brazil, Italy, India and China. 


The Process of Making Granite Countertops

…it all starts with large chunks of stone. Steel wires embedded with synthetic diamond dust cut through the stone.

The hardness of diamond makes it the most effective cutting material. Blocks of granite are transported to a factory where they are cut into thin slabs.

One side of the slab is polished to reveal a unique and colorful surface. Epoxy resin is used to fill miniature cracks, microscopic holes and other defects. 

QUARTZ

Let's start with Granite countertops

Granite is an igneous rock. It is formed from the slow crystallization of magma or molten lava below the Earth’s surface. It is composed of natural quartz or silica, feldspars or aluminosilicates, mica and other organic minerals. Most granite countertops come from quarries in Brazil, Italy, India and China.
