Our Different Countertop Types: A Brief Outline

When you’re remodeling, there are many different countertop types to choose from. At Marble Unlimited, we offer granite, marble, quartzite, soapstone, limestone, and quartz countertops.

Granite is one of the most popular natural stones because it’s attractive, hardy, and timeless. This stone performs well in indoor and outdoor kitchens—as long as it has a good coat of sealant, and it can last for generations. In regard to durability, granite is resistant to heat, stains, and scratches.

Marble

Marble is the peak of sophistication. It is a porous natural stone, which makes the sealing routine all the more important. Marble is susceptible to scratching thanks to its soft nature, but it can still last for many years if it’s taken care of the right way.

Quartzite

Quartzite is an extremely hard and durable material. If you want the look of marble without the upkeep, quartzite is your best bet. It can mirror the look of marble, but it can also be used in busy kitchens that might be too much for a marble slab to handle.

Soapstone

Even though it is softer than marble, soapstone is a durable material. It is known best for its milky look and the fact that it has a soap-like texture. This material is easy to clean, unique, and even though it can be vulnerable to scratching, scratches are easy to remove with light sanding or mineral oil.

Limestone

Limestone is a porous stone that is known for its bright aesthetics. Much like soapstone, it is also a soft natural stone, which means that you should maintain a sealing routine and avoid acidic substances in order to maintain its integrity.

Quartz

Quartz is an engineered stone that is naturally nonporous, meaning that it doesn’t require sealant. It is known for its uniform designs and seamless patterns, which many people prefer over the unpredictability of natural stone.
