GRANITE IS TOUGH AND DURABLE
MAINTENANCE IS EASY
GREAT LONG-TERM INVESTMENT
GRANITE BOOSTS A HOME’S VALUE
The team at Top Stone recommends sealing your countertop every 12 months and using a pH neutral soap to clean the surface.
Is there anything that looks and feels more glamorous than a marble countertop? Peerless in terms of its luminescence and distinctive veining, it’s an ultra-traditional choice. Nothing beats marble for sheer elegance. It stands up to heat well, and because it remains perennially cool, it’s a traditional choice for pastry and baking stations.
Marble is used primarily in other settings than the kitchen as countertops. Nowadays in construction, it is primarily used in bathroom vanities, fireplace surrounds, hearts, and tile stone. Marble’s elegance and beauty gives any home an appealing quality.
Marble is heat resistant just as granite, but its porousness and soft nature makes it a delicate material to be used as a kitchen countertop. Sharp knives can scratch the surface. Heavy pots may chip the edges of the stone and liquids such as oil, wine and juices can penetrate deeper into the stone very quickly – and it’s hard, if not impossible, to get out.

With very low maintenance, amazing durability and stunning color choices, engineered stone-or just “quartz”, offers an appealing alternative to natural stone countertops.
Nonporous and resistant to heat, quartz countertops are also resistant to spills and scratches, making them a smart choice for families or busy cooks. We are proud to work with the leading brand names in the industry including Cambria, Q-Quartz from MSI and Everst.
