We offer a comprehensive array of materials you may choose from.
The unique beauty of natural stone is the perfect solution for those who prefer a classic, timeless look. Offering a balanced combination of durability, function and aesthetics, natural stone renders a sense of luxury and elegance to any environment.
- Granite: Polished granite is a popular choice for countertops due to its high durability and aesthetic qualities. Ranging in colors from black to almost perfectly white, each slab of granite is unique in its texture and patterns. Even though it is an extremely tough surface and will withstand high temperature swings and impacts, granite needs to be sealed periodically.
- Marble : Graceful, elegant and understated, marble is a classic material available in many colors and patterns. Marble surfaces are strong, durable and heat resistant offering amazing possibilities within various applications. However, marble can be susceptible to scratching and staining. Our team can help answer questions about suitable applications to ensure your surfaces retain their beauty for years to come.
- Onyx: A great alternative to granite, marble, and other more popular stone surfaces, onyx provides a sleek and modern look to any workspace. Onyx is formed in caves as stalactites drip to form this precious stone. Onyx countertops are a rarity as they bring a unique appearance with strikingly dramatic appeal. With its exclusive style, onyx generally comes in swirling and pastel color patterns.
- Quartzite: An extremely hard surface that is not water or acid-soluble, quartzite is harder than glass and can actually cut it. In its purest form it is as white as marble, but it can have impurities in it that lead to incredible patterns and colors. Many people consider it as their only choice due to its incredible beauty and strength.
- Slate: Slate is the new black. A beautifully textured, elegant surface, slate renders luster and warmth to any kitchen or bathroom, rendering the space modern and refined, traditional, formal or anywhere in between.
- Soapstone: A timeless classic, soapstone is available in dark gray to blueish or greenish gray with light or dramatic veining. Over a period of time as soapstone ages it achieves a beautiful patina. When treated with mineral oil the stone will darken. Soapstone is an ideal kitchen countertop choice because it never has to be sealed and has high heat resistant properties.
- Travertine: Known and appreciated for its distinctive, rustic, and classic look, travertine is a light colored stone, frequently appearing in shades of tan, white, gray, gold, and light brown. Occasionally it can also come in darker tones of rusty red. The color of travertine is determined by its iron content. Travertine has a characteristically aged look, which accurately represents the long history of its use.
