Everyone loves a good countertop, but what many people don’t love is the price that comes along with a quality countertop. Luckily, at Sanford Granite, you can get the best of both worlds—a beautiful remodeled room and affordable countertops—without having to compromise one for the other.
Let’s take a look at the natural and engineered stone countertops that we offer so you can get an idea of the selection at Sanford Granite.
While marble is a bit more expensive than other types of stones, it’s a worthy investment simply because of how long it lasts and how it can increase your home’s resale value. Marble definitely gives back what you put into it.
Quartz is one of our most durable materials, boasting even more toughness than granite. The reason this stone is so tough is that it’s not natural—it’s engineered. Because quartz countertops are nonporous, you never have to worry about sealing them.
Granite is a classic natural stone that many people love for its versatility, beauty, and durability. This stone comes in a variety of styles and patterns, and it’s known for holding its own, indoors and outdoors.
Soapstone is one of the softest natural stones, akin to the texture of soap. It contains a large percentage of talc, which adds to its softness, and it’s an inherently nonporous stone—meaning that even without sealant, it is resistant to heat, stains, and bacteria.
Quartzite is one of the toughest natural stones. It has the aesthetic of marble, but it’s even harder than granite, which makes it a top choice for people who value both unique, sophisticated aesthetics and hardy materials.
Limestone is one of our most affordable countertops, and it’s very easy to work with. It’s composed of coral, shells, algae, and calcium carbonate, and it’s the top choice for many homeowners.
Travertine is yet another stone that encourages the presence of natural light in a room. It’s durable but sensitive to acidic substances like lemon juice, vinegar, and wine—so exercise caution when handling these things around your travertine slab.
Travertine can add a pop of beauty to a low-energy household. This translucent stone is extremely unique, and people value it for its interesting looks and affordability.
Onyx can mimic the look of marble when it is polished, and it can be a bit tricky to install, but if it’s done the right way, it can add depth to your remodeled room that you didn’t know was possible. It comes in a variety of patterns, so there’s sure to be a slab available that matches your needs.
