Granite is a structural and ornamental stone, and due to its high compressive strength and durability, it is used for massive structural work. Fine grained granite is employed for ornamental and monumental work as well as inscription purposes. It is the hardest of structural stones. Its mineral-rich colors, hardness, and density make it an ideal choice for flooring, counter tops, vanities, as well as exterior appliances. A broad range of elegant patterns and colors makes granite the most versatile and durable of all stones. With proper care, its beauty can last a lifetime.
There are two types. Natural and engineered, Cambria uses 100% quartz without the polymers mixed in. Manufactures like Caesarstone and Silestone use polymers, resins, and quartz. Both types are very resistant to staining; they are very dense and impervious to heat damage. There are many color options and patterns. Quartz is the most durable counter top surface available.
Marble has been valued for thousands of years for its rich palette of beautiful colors and appearance. Marbles are formed from limestone or dolomite that has undergone enough heat and pressure to get metamorphosed into a crystalline structure. Texture of marble depends on the form, size, and uniformity of grains. The chemical constituents of marble determine the color.
The muted tones of limestone are perfect for today’s more casual and comfortable lifestyles. Generally these soft beiges and tans, either polished or honed, are appropriate for bathrooms, fireplaces, counter tops, and flooring. Limestones are sedimentary rocks that are formed at the bottom of lakes and seas, as silt and organic matter settle to the bottom.
The coliseum in Rome still standing for over 2,000 years is the most famous travertine structure in the world. Travertine is commonly used outside as classing and pavement, as well as inside for floors, walls, and counter tops. Travertine is generally filled with cement before honing or polishing, which produces a uniform surface more like other marbles.
Laminate counter tops have advanced further over the last couple of years in color offerings and textures to give it the look of granite and stone. The cost of laminate counter tops is the most economical.
