Each slab varies in color, movement, thickness, texture, fissures, and more. With that being said, it is important to view and select your exact slab. One thing to note about granite and any other natural stone is that it is porous. Therefore, it needs to be sealed in order to prevent staining and/or discoloration.

Quartz is a man made product that has taken over the market with its durability, appearance, and non porous surface. While they do consist of natural quartz stone, they also include added resins, colors and other materials to help enhance its strength and style. The idea of quartz was to mimic natural stone without the maintenance.
The non-porous surface makes it 99.9 percent bacteria-free, so it’s a much healthier choice especially in the kitchen, whereas porous natural stone like real marble will soak up every spill and splash.
Another plus is that it requires very little maintenance. While you need to reseal natural stone every few months or every year, quartz never needs sealing. Keeping it clean is simple, too, with just a soft sponge, water, and dish soap for more stubborn grime.
Marble is a beautiful natural stone that has been used for centuries. Marble stone is formed from limestone, superheated to form its unique crystalline structure. With its large variety of colors and movements, marble will compliment any style and decor whether modern, traditional, or minimalist. Marble countertop surfaces are timeless with their classic beauty and elegance.
Quartzite is a very hard metamorphic rock that originated as sandstone. Through a process of high heating and pressurization sandstone is transformed into Quartzite, an extremely strong and durable natural stone. When heated, individual quartz pieces recrystallize giving it a beautiful and decorative sparkling pattern. Quartzite is ideal for any countertop surface due to its strength and long-lasting composition. Consider quartzite countertops for its strength, beauty, and overall durability.
