Sealing granite countertops is a DIY project even a novice DIYer can handle. Follow these step-by-step instructions (with pictures) to protect your countertops.
Contractors say homeowners with this trait are the most satisfied with home improvement projects.
Want to update your bathroom without leaving it outdated in a decade? Consider these bathroom remodel ideas for counters, colors and style that transcend time.
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.

At the end of January, I met with
From January to the end of June I did not hear from
Since my new bathroom had been used only by family guests before the sink was replaced and I cleaned it after use, I can say with certainty that the faucet was not damaged before the R&L men replaced the sink. The drain pipe did not leak before the sink was replaced. There are several good reviews for R&L. None of them involve an issue with product or installation. There is one review where there was a big problem and
In an attempt to arbitrate this issue,
Since his workers automatically reconnected the plumbing drain line when they installed the sink, I believe that the leak is the responsibility of R&L Stone and Marble. Since there were no workmen in the bathroom since completion except those sent by R&L Stone & Marble, I believe that the faucet damage is also their responsibility. I will amend this review if my costs for damages are reimbursed.
I looked in my area (Baltimore and Columbia, MD) for someone to install soapstone counters. I was not able to find anyone in the vicinity that was as knowledgeable and willing to work with us as .
After several e-mail communications with him, my husband and I took the 2-hour drive to pick out our stone. He carries a slightly harder soapstone (PA Original) than some of the other places we visited, and that was what we wanted. He answered all our questions, and it was clear he was far more knowledgeable than anyone else we had talked to. We chose our stone, he stored it for several months until we were ready for installation.
If you are going to use soapstone, it is important to have a knowledgeable fabricator and installer, since it is different from other stones, such as granite, and many fabricators are really not that familiar with it. We found that the price from
After our cabinets were installed (by someone else),
The counters are absolutely gorgeous! The fabrication and installation were obviously done by true craftsmen. There is a seam in the fireplace surround that is almost impossible to find because such care was taken to match. The counters were cut to highlight the veining in the stone, and the finish is so beautiful that it practically begs to be touched.
Overall, we were very happy with the work and would highly recommend
The work entailed making a template for the new tops, setting up the actual slabs at the template superimposed and making sure that we approved cutting map. Subsequently, a visit to our home for the removal of the old tops and installation of the new ones was scheduled. The work started exactly on time and was essentially mess-free. The employees who installed the tops were very clean and professional. A slight glitch occurred during installation whereby they discovered that the existing cabinet tops were not level and the walls were not straight both requiring on-site modifications.
Overall, we were very pleased with the professionalism, quality and communications exhibited by all. The new counter-tops look great.
the freight company. It was thought to be a total loss, and the client
would not have opened their new store on time. Cavalier was able to
assemble the damage parts into a working counter that worked great until
a replacement could be produced. Most companies would have walked away
from the pile of debris, but they took the time to make it work even
though the easy route would have been to just refuse the shipment.
That is the type of company I will work with every time.”
