Natural Stone Products Overview
Granite is a formed beneath the earth’s crust by magma flowing into deep pockets and cooling under tremendous pressure. It is highly crystallized and is comprised from Quartz, Feldspar and Mica. Polished granite is a popular choice for countertops due to its high durability and aesthetic qualities. Granite has become the countertop of choice for today’s home owners. Synthetic solid surface materials are no match for the richness, depth, and incredible performance of real granite. Unlike laminates and solid-surface materials, a hot pot or frying pan has no effect on granite’s mirror-quality finish…
There are many types of quartz which are constantly evolving as a result of technology. Quartz is a great choice for kitchens and bathrooms because it extremely hard and is stain, heat, bacteria resistant. It’s both hard, flexible and lighter than granite which allows for easier installation.
Quartz has a hard, nonporous surface, making it simple to clean. In most cases, soap and water or a mild detergent is all that is required to maintain its luster. If necessary, a non-abrasive cleaner such as Vim Oxy-Gel or a mild degreaser can be used. Adhered materials like food, gum, or nail polish can be scraped away with a plastic putty knife: any marks left by the blade can be removed. Thoroughly rinse the surface with clean water to remove residue…
Marble will add a touch of class and elegance to your kitchen or bathroom countertop. A sedimentary stone that is formed from superheated limestone, which results in its crystalline structure. Marble is an igneous stone that occurs naturally through the metamorphosis of limestone. It contains many different compounds, but consists mainly of calcium carbonate which gives marble its generally light and creamy hue. Colour variations in white marble are caused by impurities from other substances.
Today, marble is used primarily in bathroom vanities, fireplace surroundings, hearths, and tile stone. The trend of using marble for kitchen countertops is slowly increasing. Marble’s elegance and beauty gives any home an appealing quality. It provides a pure, graceful look.
