There are two areas in your home where you get a lot of bang for your renovation-buck. First off is the kitchen, but the next best place to spend your money is in your bathroom. An updated bathroom is always a good return on your investment. If you have stone as your tub surround, your bathroom will be transformed into something that is both eye-catching and incredible. Stone bathtub surrounds are a perfect fit for any bathroom. One of the best things about a stone tub surround is the lack of grout lines. If you go with tile, you will be working to clean mildew out of all that grout. Stone slabs are in large pieces, so you don’t have all that grout to deal with. Besides, when it comes to beauty, nothing can compare with a polished stone surface. If you are looking to add value to your home, or simply add magnificence to your shower routine, then stone is perfect for you. At Arch City Granite, we have the selection you want at the prices you can afford. We want to help you make the right decision for you home. Here are a few details about our products for stone bathtub surrounds.
When it comes to natural stone, nothing looks quite as amazing as marble. If you decide to go with a marble tub surround, you will be smiling every time you step into your shower or bathtub. Marble has those amazing veins of color and that cool glossy surface will transform your bathroom into a palace. While you don’t have to worry about cleaning all those tile grout lines, marble does come with its own type of maintenance. Marble is susceptible to acids and oils. You will be careful using certain types of hair and body products. Acids can etch marble, and oils can stain. Fortunately, you marble will come with a sealed surface, but you will need to make certain you keep the seal current. You will need to have it resealed if you want to keep your marble surfaces looking their best. One of the best ways to keep your marble shower looking good is to use a squeegee and wipe down your shower. This will help remove soap scum and water spots. It is a good practice to have with any shower surface.

Using granite for you stone bathtub surround will look amazing. Like marble, granite has a seal coat on the surface. That sealant keeps water and soap scum from getting into the stone. Granite comes in quite a few varieties and colors. If you have a lot of natural light in your bathroom, you can go with dark colors to add instant beauty.

Since the granite will come in large slabs, you will have very few seams.

Quartz is just as hard as granite. And since the quartz slabs are engineered with around 93 to 96 percent quartz, you will be pleased to know that quartz is going to be just as hard and durable as granite.
