Contractors say homeowners with this trait are the most satisfied with home improvement projects.
Granite countertops can be a great addition to your home. One highly rated provider shares tips for how to choose the right color of granite for your kitchen.
An experts contributor explains the pros and cons of installing porcelain tile and marble tile in your home and how to decide which is best for your space.
Artificial (quartz) is cheaper, more uniform, has fewer voids to collect dirt, and is almost as abrasion and chip resistant.
Granite is more expensive, stains and collects dirt a little easier as a rule, and is slighly more chip resistant as a rule.
For durability, I would not rate one over the other - barring a 250 lb guy hopping up on it and cracking it, either is likely to outlive you. Selection is typically based on appearance - quartz tends to be more uniform looking and does not always do a good job of simulating the veining and variations that natural stone has.
Now some of the man made stone counters rival the real granite and othe stones without the maintainence of stone. There are many of them out there and it is more a choice of looks than anything else. Corian is still a strong choice of tops today and one advantage is it can be repaired when scratched on site. If you don't mind the maintainence you can't beat the looks of real stone though unless you need a few pieces to make up the top as the graining may be hard to match up. I am impressed though at how realistic some of the man made products have become. It is more an issue of what brand are available in your area. Most all are made the same way with crushed stone and basically an epoxy binder used to make the sheets.
Marble And Granite reviews in East Peoria
The fabrication and installation teams were wonderful. Everyone involved with this project was polite, knowledgeable and professional. The work was done on schedule and the installation team waited for our final inspection and approval. We could not be happier with the outcome.
In addition to this project,
We highly recommend
My husband took the day off to meet the representative 1/23/15 between 11-12. Approximately 10 minutes before my husband should have expected a rep. from QC to be at our home, he informed me that he received a phone call saying that the quote was wrong and that the quote should be $2336. Which is a $644 difference.
We are not unresounable and we understand that mistakes happen, but when discussing the numbers they were not willing to make any concessions. To give a perspective the best quote with the same perimeter and same granite slab is $2070.
I hope this information is helpful to anyone.
The hard part was finding a competent, skilled, and affordable installer. Stone Mart suggested a poor quality installer, Seven Golden Floors. It’s great for Stone Mart business when they suggest a crap installer and then you have to buy additional tile when your project needs to be redone. My advice to future tile customers is to get porcelain tile and forget about stone. It's not worth it. It takes great skill and experience to install stone correctly (especially in a shower) and with quality. Stone is also high maintenance and chips and cracks SO easily. I'm always seeing new chips and wondering, "How the? What the?" I'm so delicate with it and yet still it chips. You have to seal it every 5 years and it’s difficult to clean. After living with it for half a year now, I would never do stone again. Porcelain tile is stronger than ceramic and more durable than stone. That is the way I will go in the future. Stone looks good, but it is not functional or durable when you live with it.
