Dust from real natural marble is used in the manufacturing process of cultured marble, and actually makes up about 75% of the finished product. The dust is combined with liquid polyester resin to create the cultured marble vanity top. The possibilities of design, style, and color are virtually endless. Cultured marble is a manufactured product that is molded. Due to this process, just about any shape or size can be custom made to fit your needs. In addition, the manufacturer can add tint to create just about any color you desire. The final product is coated with a clear finish that can be either satin or high gloss, depending on your preference.

Granite, Marble, and Quartz are all appealing for countertops in a kitchen or bathroom, all three come in various colors and patterns and are a natural alternative to laminate, wood or concert.

Granite is the most common choice for kitchen and bathroom countertops because of its natural appeal and its resistance to stains, cracks, and scratches. Both marble and granite are naturally made stones and although marble has the most unique look and natural imitation it can be less forgiving when it comes to stains and scratches. Marble is more porous than both granite and quartz making it more susceptible to staining especially with highly acidic liquids and cleaners.

Unlike marble & granite, quartz countertops are not entirely natural, they are manufactured stone about ninety-two percent quartz and eight percent resin. By doing this it gives the manufacture a wider variety of color options and designs. Quartz is also the least porous of the three stones making it the most resistant to stains and scratches and requiring the least about of care and upkeep.

Most of our Granite comes from Brazil, we also import from Italy, Spain, China and India.

Granite is formed from volcanic magma under earth’s surface and takes millions of years to fully cool down and harden. During the cooling down process the magma combines with different minerals to create the various intricate patterns and designs you see. As the surrounding earthen material erodes overtime the hard granite is exposed and this creates what is called a “granite quarry”.

In general no, but all stone does have some porosity to it.

We recommend keeping your stone up to date on sealers to avoid staining. Some colors are more susceptible to staining than others. Spilling acidic liquid or using harsh cleaners can increase the risk of getting spots or stains on the granite. Also leaving any type of liquid sitting directly on the countertops for a period of time will run the risk of getting a dark stain or spot.

No, you cannot burn granite with ordinary use.

Although we do not recommend sitting hot pans directly on your granite countertops. In general granite is also very hard to scratch and is resistant to normal use. Although just like burning we do not recommend that you cut directly on your granite surface. (Ask us about a free granite cutting board with your purchase!!)
