At Granite 4 Less, we have 2 main materials that we sell to fabricators: granite, and quartz. Each coming in a variety of colors.
Granite is our first, and most popular option. Composed of a variety of minerals such as quartz, feldspar, and mica, it forms in hundreds of colors, and is quarried worldwide, but most often from Brazil, Spain, India and China, though most of our material is from Brazil. The only natural stones harder than granite are diamonds, rubies, and sapphires. This makes granite an excellent choice when permanence, enduring color and texture, and complete freedom from deterioration and maintenances are prime requirements.
Granite will not scratch, or absorb any liquid, and placing a hot pan from the stove or tray from the oven straight on the granite won't affect the material at all. Dents and chips are not very common when it comes to granite countertops, mainly because of how hard it is, but it can happen due to extremely heavy pans or hits to the edges, however, it is always reparable as well.
Granite is a great option for your kitchen not only because of how impenetrable it is, but because it will add a great value to your home. Whether you're planning on selling your house now or in the future, any kitchen with granite countertops will be a plus to the customers.
The second option is the less popular, yet, rapid growing quartz. Imported straight from the leading European distributor of quartz, our material has an extremely high quality, comparable to any on the market.
One of the main reasons that people are choosing quartz over other types of natural stone is that quartz countertops has a consistent shade and pattern, throughout the entire block, meaning that if your kitchen requires various slabs, it will be uniform. Quartz countertops have a consistent color and appearance.
Quartz countertops, like granite countertops, are non-porous, so you never have to worry about common materials that will cause a stain. Quartz countertops are also resistant to scratches. There are only three minerals that are harder than quartz. These minerals include topaz, sapphire, and diamond. Since this material is so hard, your quartz countertops will rarely get scratched.
As previously mentioned, quartz countertops are considered “new” when compared to granite, but are quickly gaining its own place in American kitchens. Quartz will also add value to your kitchen, giving it a more modern appearance.
You can view samples of both of these materials in their respective galleries. However, we must warn you that no matter how high quality the picture may be, they do not do our material justice. If you would like to see our material in person, stop by today and we will personally help you choose the exact slab(s) that your kitchen will be made out of. We can ship the slabs straight to your fabricator the same day you choose it. Don’t hesitate to make us your countertop supply.
