Everyone is familiar with Granite these days as it has become one of the most popular materials used for countertops. It doesn’t stop there! Granite is becoming a very popular choice for floors, fireplace surrounds, and showers as well. Granite goes extremely well with all kitchen cabinets Raleigh as well. So, what is Granite exactly? We are glad you asked, let us explain! Granite is an igneous rock made up of several minerals including quartz, feldspar, and biotite. With Granite being formed under the earth’s crust with the different minerals previously mentioned it’s easily one of the strongest materials used in countertop manufacturing available! With so many different species and variations in grain patterns, it’s not hard to find one that really suits your taste! Granite even has more edge profiles than laminate countertops, so it becomes more customizable to the individuals taste and preferences. Not only is Granite unbelievably durable and gorgeous it is now more easily accessible and, also much more affordable than it has ever been before! Is it easy to maintain? Absolutely! Before being installed the stone is polished and sealed with a state-of-the-art penetrating sealer. It is highly recommended that Granite is resealed every year to keep at the maximum durability. Although it is one of the most durable surfaces you can have sealing it regularly helps to prevent stains from happening. Although stains do not happen often certain household products need to be used with caution. Items and liquids such as citric acid, red wines, and cooking oils have been known to stain the finish if not cleaned immediately. If you have any more questions, feel free to give us a call and one of our associates would be more than happy to answer any questions you have.
Similar to Granite, Quartz is comprised of several different ingredients depending on which color choice you select. Quartz countertops are primarily comprised of about 90%-93% wasted stone materials. Whether the Quartz product is comprised of wasted granite, marble, natural stone, or even glass. The other 7%-10% is more of a “glue” typically being a polymeric or cement- based binder! This is the reason Quartz is often called a “man-made” product, because it is in fact, man-made! In 1963, Quartz first began its manufacturing debut under the Breton company in Italy and the manufacturing process was licensed under the trademark Bretonstone. We are sure you are familiar with some of the more popular Quartz manufacturers such as Cambria, Silestone, or Caesarstone, but all of Quartz manufacturers are all licensed under Bretonstone to manufacture these products! So technically all Quartz comes from the same source! As far as countertops are concerned quartz has been on the rise all around the world as a more “green” and environmentally friendly application for countertops, flooring, tiles, and much more! What are the differences between the two? Obviously, Quartz being a man-made product and granite being naturally occurring is the most significant difference, but there are a few more differences and each has their own wins in this subject. For example, Quartz is stronger, more durable, and more flexible than Granite! On the other hand, Granite is more scratch and heat resistant than Quartz. Finally, Quartz is antimicrobial, so it inhibits the growth of bacteria’s and is easier to maintain than granite. Just wipe it down with warm water, maybe some mild cleaner, a sponge and you are all set, you don’t even need to seal it like you would with Granite or other similar surfaces. All in all Quartz countertops are an excellent choice for any home project that will stand the test of time with their superb durability, beautiful variations, and low maintenance that is second to none!
A naturally occurring and beautiful stone, Marble is another go to choice for kitchens, baths, and flooring. Ranging in different colors and grain patterns marble offers gorgeous options to suit just about anyone’s taste. Marble is a metamorphic stone comprised of recrystallized minerals and is most commonly a base of limestone or dolomite with unique grains made up of interlocking carbonate crystals. Marble is durable but is also a little more porous than the other stone surface often used in kitchens. Due to Marble being more porous it can be a high maintenance choice in kitchens and baths alike. Improper care and maintenance can lead to scratches, stains, and dullness. As with other stones Marble is sealed with state-of-the art products and should be resealed every year or so as needed. Pricing will range between the different species so call or email for pricing.
Butcher Block Countertops
Butcher Block countertops are now quickly gaining increased popularity in homes. Originally made for meat processing, Butcher Blocks offer both extreme functionality, and a beautiful contrast in any kitchen. Butcher Blocks are made by layering and gluing strips of hardwoods together to create one large slab. By using several strips for each Butcher Block the manufacturer can choose the strongest, straightest, and more beautifully grained pieces for each countertop really making each countertop one of a kind. The three most common types of Butcher Block are Edge Grain, Face Grain, and End Grain. Before breaking down each style we will discuss the grain. When trees are milled you get pieces that run the length of the tree which are called slabs. Looking down at a slab you will see the face grain, which is where most of the beauty is seen. Once the sides have been squared off you have the edge grain which will have strong and tight grain running through. Finally, the edge grain is going to be the pieces cut from the top of the slab and turned upright. The most common and affordable style is going to be the Edge Grain. Edge Grain tops are made by taking long strips of raw hardwood and joining them on their sides providing a durable and long-lasting surface that works well with knives. Face grain countertops tend to be more appealing to some as you really see the heart of the wood, but they are not functional as cutting surfaces due to these pieces having a more open grain. Edge Grain tops are typically going to be the more costly of the three styles but comes with better properties as a cutting surface. End grain countertops tend to resemble the look of a checkers board and are the preferred style for chefs because they hide cut marks and blemishes well. Popular hardwoods such as Maple, Cherry, and Walnut are going to be the easiest and most common Butcher Blocks found, but of course you can get exotics like Zebra Wood or Teak as well for the right amount of money. All are beautiful and if maintained properly will serve you for decades to come. Let’s talk about the care and maintenance of Butcher Block tops. Due to the nature of woods Butcher Block countertops will get scratches, cuts, and dings while also needing to be oiled frequently. Butcher Block tops can be oiled or sealed but this is determined by your intended use for them. If you plan on using them for cutting and food preparing, then you will want to go with food safe oils. If your countertops are for to be used as such and enhance the look of your home, then you may consider sealing them instead. The frequency of oiling or sealing depends on several factors, but it is recommended to oil once a month or seal every six months. Before doing so you may have scratches or cut marks, which is fine, but needs to be addressed before oiling or sealing. Simple enough to do with fine grit sandpaper you will be able to keep your butcher Block Countertops looking in pristine condition. Over the years they will develop a deep patina which can really give them beautiful character and a rustic look. Some people love this quality and others may find this as a negative characteristic, so make sure you consider what your preference is before investing in these hardwood countertops and in kitchen cabinets Raleigh!
Cultured Marble is available in many colors and styles ranging from solid colors to granite imitation patterns. Cultured marble is created in molds and is typically comprised of around 75% dust from real marble and the rest being a liquid polyester resin. Budget friendly and easy to maintain this has become a very popular choice for vanity countertops. Standard sizing will be the most cost effective and quickest way to get your project completed but cultured marble can also be made customized to lengths, depths, and finished off with special edge profiles. Due to the manufacturing process of cultured marble it is non-porous unlike real marble thus becoming stain resistant and super easy to clean. Whether used as a countertop or shower it is recommended to squeegee or dry after each use. Cleaning cultured marble is very simple as well, just avoid using abrasive cleaners and harsh chemicals.
Let’s talk about Laminate countertops! Laminate countertops were first introduced in the early 1900’s and are still very popular today due to their unique patterns and budget friendly prices. Standard laminate countertops are made 1 ½” think using particle board, but this can be substituted for plywood at an additional cost! The unique patterns of laminate range from solid colors to wood grain patterns, granite patterns, and everything in between! With literally thousands of laminate patterns to choose from there is something out there for everyone. Now we will dive into the properties and styles of laminate countertops and really get you up to speed! Laminate countertops are going to come in two standard styles- Post form laminate and custom square edge. Post form laminate is all one piece, meaning that the backsplash is built into the countertop before they are laminated. The benefits of post form being all one piece is the limiting of seams. Seams are not terrible but if the countertops are not dried or properly taken care of the risk of water damage and swelling is increased. Post form countertops also offer different edge profiles from the standard Ultra Water Fall to the more designer style such as the Vida. L shaped countertops and straight run countertops over 12’ will require a miter and/ or a seam. Custom square edge countertops are just like they sound, square on all sides. Because they are square on all sides the laminate is applied individually to each side first, routed, filed, and finally sanded. Once all of the edges have been laminated the top portion of laminate is applied over the flat surface, routed, and finally filed. Due to the manufacturing process of square edge tops you end up with clean seams, but you do have more of them. Again, if they are taken care of properly there is no alarming concern for water damage, but it does exist.
