Each type of countertop has unique qualities and differences. Even though, you might be tempted to pick a countertop based solely on color, there are other things to consider. In order to help you make the right decision for your home, Arch City Granite wants you to have the information you need to make an educated decision. With us on your side, you will have the information you need to begin looking for the right countertops for your home.
- Marble: Marble countertops say luxury. The veins add a unique quality and the crystal smooth surface will make your kitchen pop. Marble countertops may have the look of luxury, but they need a lot of care. If your home has young kids, you might want to reconsider marble. Things like vinegar, orange juice, lemonade, and heavy cleaners containing acid and can etch the surface of your marble. Marble is best cleaned with lightly soapy water, or a product that is specially made for cleaning marble.
- Soapstone: Certain soapstone varieties can have veins like marble, but most do not. Soapstone is non-porous and very dense. There are not very many chemicals or liquids that can penetrate the surface. Because of its dense structure, you will be able to keep the surface nearly germ free. Soapstone is soft, so you will want to avoid any activity that can scratch or chip the surface. Unlike other countertops, you will not need to use a sealant. That makes soapstone one of the most environmentally safe surfaces you can bring into your home. Soapstone is limited in its color variation, if you want a certain color, you might have to go with a different surface.
- Granite: When it comes to durability, nothing can compare to a granite countertop. If you have a granite countertop, you don’t need a cutting board, you can cut everything right on the surface. You will dull your knives before you scratch the surface. You never need to use hot pads, because you can set pots and pans straight from your oven onto your granite countertop. It is also non-porous, so it is easy to disinfect. Granite countertops are perfect in a home that has young children.
- Quartz: Quartz is one of the hardest materials on earth. So when it comes to durability a quartz countertop is on the same playing field as granite. Another positive feature about a quartz countertop is the variety. You will be able to find any color you want. The reason for the variety comes from the fact that a quartz countertop is not a slice of stone, it is engineered. That’s right! A quartz countertop contains upwards of 95% ground quartz, the other bit is the resin that holds everything together. A quartz countertop is extremely durable, but it does not take high temperatures. A pan out of your oven will have to rest on a hot pad and not on your countertop.
