Q: What is the difference between granite and quartz?
A: Granite is natural stone that is mined from quarries all around the world. The slabs of granite all look a little different. Quartz is man-made. It varies much less than granite, so usually what you see is what you get. It is 93% stone and 7% acrylic resin. Granite surfaces need to be sealed usually every 6 months with a simple spray.
Q: What is the benefit to stone surfaces rather than solid surface?

A: We have installed window sills, fireplaces, shelves, and can do almost anything you need!
