Our Products

We have a number of stone options on site. Each one has it's own color, texture and performance qualities. 

Quartz Surfaces

Comprised of 93% natural quartz, Quartz surfaces offer an exciting new option for countertops. Quartz surfaces offer the realistic, high-polished look of granite, with a wide range of consistent color options.

Crushed quartz, one of nature's hardest minerals, is combined with polymer resins and then compacted in dense, non-porous, consistent colored slabs. They are offered in an array of colors from neutral tones to bold, luminous hues. Quartz surfaces are resistant to cracking and chipping and heat and scorch resistant under normal cooking conditions, however the resins combined with the quartz make the surfaces slightly less durable than granite. Although no sealing is required, it is recommended to wipe any spills immediately.

Most Quartz surfaces are available in the same thicknesses as granite, and can be fabricated with all the edge profiles. Quartz surfaces are man-made slabs, therefore usually slightly more expensive than granite and other natural stones. Colors and availability can also affect pricing.

The Granite Company offers four unique lines of Quartz surfaces including:

Granite

Granite is the most durable of all stones. Its diamond-like hardness makes this unique material the most favorable when choosing high traffic surfaces like kitchens and bathroom counters. Granite is easily taken care of with daily cleaning and yearly sealing, and will look as good as the day it was installed for your lifetime and years beyond. Unlike many solid surface materials that scratch, granite will never need to be replaced. An environmentally friendly natural choice, granite will add elegance and increase your home value.

Granite comes in many different natural patterns and is available in the following finishes:
Polished, (highly reflective)
Honed, (satin surface)
Brushed, (rough textured)
Waterjetted, (extra course texture)

Soapstone

Soapstone has been rediscovered as it sweeps the country on television home shows and in magazines. Its recent appeal stems from its warm, rustic, inviting look along with its non-porous surface. Because of its density and usual topcoat of mineral oil applied after installation, it is virtually stain-proof. Mineral oil is the preference and responsibility of the customer, as the color deepens to individual liking. The oil results in a deep black matte finish with the beauty of natural stone markings.

Slate

A durable and waterproof stone, slate is comprised of mica and quartz with small amounts chlorite, hematite, and other minerals. It is typically gray and black in color, but with the presence of other minerals, hues of red, purple, and green can resonate. Slate is easily split in thin, durable sheets, therefore ideal for roofing, flagstone, high-water areas such as showers and pool areas. Most slate is available in tile form, including 12"x12" and 16"x16" tiles, although select colors come in slab form and are used for countertops and chalk boards.

Marble

Due to its legendary elegance, marble is popular for flooring, vanities, tub surrounds, fireplace surrounds, pillars and sculptures. Marble takes a high polish, but is significantly softer than granite and scratches very easily. It is an easy target for acidic foods and cleaning products, and as a result, is not recommended for use in kitchens. Marble can lose its color and high polish, therefore requires preventative sealing and proper maintenance including neutral cleaners. Marble is generally priced comparable to granite. Availability of the material determines the specific pricing.

Onyx

Noted for its unique, colorful patters formed in its surface, Onyx is widely used for art and decoration more so than for standard countertops. Onyx forms as a type of marble and patterns change on the rate of cell growth in the stone. Variations that differentiate it from other calcite include unique crystal patterns and color, varying degrees of translucency and transparency, the ability to accept various degrees of polish, including high polish, and it's resistance to fading from exposure to sunlight.

Onyx can be carved and polished into elegant pieces of decorative décor, including sculptures, pillars, vanity bowls, and walls, niches, and showers that can be illuminated from behind.

Limestone/Travertine

Limestone and Travertine are soft stones, therefore best used for flooring, vanity tops, fireplace surrounds, and furniture. They are usually available in a honed finish, although some of the denser limestone can be polished to a higher gloss finish. Because of their softness, they are easy to quarry and shape, but they are extremely porous materials, and must be properly sealed and maintained frequently. As with marble, acids and harsh cleaners will etch the surface. Neutral cleaners are recommended on a daily basis.
