Carrollton, TX Countertops – Experts in Craftsman Style Counters
How to Choose a Countertop to Meet Your Needs
Whether you’re looking for granite, marble, quartz, and solid surface countertops, our Carrollton, Texas countertop installation experts have you covered.
With its heat-resistant qualities, granite doesn’t blister; it’s also unlikely to scratch or chip. When used for kitchen countertops, it’s far superior to marble, synthetic and laminate. It’s also better-looking and has a luminous, dimensional quality when polished.
Our granite countertops are hugely popular for use in today’s kitchens; and granite and marble countertops will work with virtually any style of cabinet that you choose. Whether fabricated as a slab or as tiles, granite is elegant and durable. Each piece of granite used for your countertop is unique in texture and veining, and enhances your kitchen like a piece of fine art. Granite is a beautiful, quarried stone composed of quartz, mica, feldspar, and other minerals which give it a crystalline appearance and feel. It is available in a wide spectrum of colors ranging from green, gold, or brown to mauve, black, and white. Some kinds of granite have veining. Because each piece is different, hand-select the pieces you want for your countertop.
Granite is drilled, chiseled and blasted out of quarries in large blocks, and special milling machines then cut it into workable slabs. Typically, a slab of granite is around 4 to 5 feet (1.2 to 1.5 meters) wide and between 7 to 9 feet (2.1 to 2.7 meters) long. Other machines polish the material into a uniform thickness, usually about three-quarters of an inch to 1 1/4 inches (2 to 3 centimeters).
Granite is available with polished, brushed, honed, or flamed finishes on the surface. This hard, long-lasting, stone countertop resists scratches, cuts, and even scorching heat, but it should still endure the process of sealing to avoid stains. Granite counter tops, along with marble and quartz, have the capability to make any kitchen or bathroom look luxurious – and increase the value of your home.
