- Granite: Granite has been extensively used as a dimension stone and as flooring tiles in public and commercial buildings and monuments. Polished granite is also a popular choice for kitchen countertops due to its high durability and aesthetic qualities.
- Marble: Marble is a crystallized limestone that was compressed and heated deep within the Earth’s crust. Unlike granite, it was never a densely compressed molten rock. Instead, it has a medium density. While it may be tempting to choose marble over granite for a kitchen counter top, it is important to realize that marble is softer and more porous than granite, so it can stain and scratch more easily. Its colors, veining, and patterns, though, can be spectacular, and it can be the perfect choice for accent walls, counter back splashes, architectural elements such as fireplace mantels and columns, flooring, and for use in bathrooms.
- Travertine: Travertine is uniquely combined with cement before it is smoothed and polished to provide a more uniform surface much like its granite and marble counterparts. Its honed natural finish is ideal for both commercial and residential countertop use. Travertine comes in both tile and slab forms to meet your preferences.
