Throughout history, natural stone has always been a prime building material. Monuments from ancient Greece and Egypt made with natural stone are still standing strong in 2020. Therefore, you can only imagine the benefits that come from incorporating natural stone throughout your home. Our specialties include kitchen, bathroom, and outdoor countertops that are both stylish and durable. Although we specialize in engineered stone (which has many benefits) as well, today, we’d like to shine a spotlight on natural stone. Here is why natural stone countertops are the absolute best.
Durability and Dependability
Granite, in particular, is unmatched when it comes to its strength and durability. The material shows minimal wear-and-tear over time. Homeowners also find it to be a sustainable material that works well for both the indoors and outdoors.
Natural Stone is Eco-Friendly
Sourcing, processing, and extracting natural stone has minimal, if any, negative impacts on the environment. If you’re a conscientious homeowner that cares about reducing their carbon footprint, then you can fully enjoy your natural stone countertop. Stone doesn’t require a lot of energy in its manufacturing process. It also doesn’t release any toxic chemicals that can put you and your family at risk. Home improvement projects and installations should keep your home both stylish and safe.
Did you also know that natural stone absorbs ambient temperature? It can store both heat and colder temperatures well. In short, this means is that it can help to keep your home at a regulated temperature. A regulated temperature helps lower energy bills.
Natural Stone Countertops are Mold-Proof and Waterproof
Natural stone is safe around food, meaning that it’s a viable option for countertops and sinks. We don’t only specialize in countertop installation, but we install stock sinks as well. Natural stone countertops are mold and waterproof. These factors make it incredibly safe to have a natural stone countertop in high-traffic areas such as your kitchen and bathroom.
Natural Stone is a Versatile Material
Are you a homeowner that goes crazy for color? Are you more on the conservative side? Do you love luxury? Whatever your preference is, we can provide you with a custom countertop that requires little maintenance. With the custom shapes, sizes, textures, and colors, we’re sure that you’ll find a countertop to suit your fancy.
