Natural stone is used for its durability, beauty, and quality. Granite and other natural stones will last forever and can be used in many applications around the house.
From template to install is usually 3-5 days.
No. We always have someone available at the showroom. Our hours are Mon- Fri 8AM to 6PM.

No, you only pay for the material used in your project.
Stone surfaces are fairly easy to maintain and keep clean. Just use warm soapy water.
Yes we will seal your tops with a penetrating sealer.
No, not during everyday use.
In general, no. However, acidic substances and oils will eat through the sealer and cause “etching” in the stone. Marble will also stain if in contact with acidic substances.
Natural granite is heat resistant. While placing a hot pot on your natural granite countertop won’t damage the stone, it can degrade the sealer, which can lead to staining. We recommend using a hot pad or trivet to protect your countertop.
Seams are done when two pieces meet. The seams are joined with epoxy and color matched to blend with the stones color. Most seams are not visible and are usually less than an 1/8th of an inch.
Yes, since granite is a natural substance, pits and fissures are a natural part of the stone’s natural structure. These fissures are not cracks and will not compromise the stones strength.
Granite is so durable that it normally does not lend itself to damage. But, if it does chip we can fix it with ground chips of granite and epoxy.
Granite weighs about 18 pounds per square foot. Any well constructed cabinet will be able to support the weight of the stone.
We recommend using support brackets for any overhang that exceeds 6″.
