We offer many different choices for your countertop Southern California.

Soapstone

Soapstone is a great stone for countertops because of its unique properties. It is a non-porous stone that is naturally sealed. Soapstone is naturally very dense. Soapstone is a great choice because it is anti-bacterial, as it will not absorb any moisture. It is also mold and mildew resistant. Soapstone is chemically inert, making cleaning easy. It is impervious to staining so wine, vinegar, and lemon juice will not harm this stone. Soapstone can take temperature of anywhere from 2000 to 3000 degrees Fahrenheit of heat. So never worry about placing anything hot straight from the oven on the soapstone countertops.

Granite

Granite is a very hard stone that comes in a wide range of colors that will suit any decor. This natural stone is an igneous rock and is porous so it will absorb moisture. It is not advisable to place hot pans or pots on granite because it can discolor or crack the stone. Granite needs to be chemically sealed and cleaned with special products. Anything acidic, such as wine or lemon juice, will hurt the granite finish.

Marble

Marble is a metamorphic rock with beautiful white and grey coloration. Marble is acid sensitive. Medium hardness which is softer than granite. Many pastry chefs like to use marble because it retains cold temperatures. Marble can stain, both in its sealed or unsealed state. Marble tiles work great as a backsplash material.

Quartzite

Quartzite is a type of metamorphic rock. Natural quartzite is non-porous and scratch resistant. It is a low maintenance stone that has a very low porosity. It has some resistance towards acids but still needs to be sealed. It is somewhat heat resistant, but it is advisable to use protection under hot pots and pans.

Silestone

Silestone is a man made material. It is a compound made of natural quartz. This hard material is non-porous so it does not need to be sealed and does not stain easily. Silestone does not scratch easily and is easy to maintain. Do not put hot pans or pots directly on the countertop because placing hot items on it may cause thermal shock.
