Granite Hero October Hints:
Before You Buy Your Stone, Know Your Stone!


 

These days all  you need to do is walk into a local stone yard and you ll see an astonishing range of granite, quartzite, marble, onyx, and more. But does this abundantly available supply of natural stone options come with a hidden cost? The answer more times than not is yes!

Choose your natural stone counter tops wisely.

Harder more dense stones like granite are the best choices because they are perfect for  kitchens where durability counts. Stay away form Softer stones like marble and limestone if you have "high traffic" in the kitchen. These exotic soft stones require more care and are better choices for bathroom vanities.

 

“There’s a trend toward white marble right now”

Marble has been prominently used in European homes for centuries. “It’s a living surface that tells the story of the family over the years,” a mainstream belief in the culture. However in the states most people want a hard polish finish or a look that stays the same. Someone who wants the surface to always look like the day it came out of the showroom  “it may not be the right choice.”. These soft stones are susceptible to etching, water marks, spotting and scratching.
