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Want to update your bathroom without leaving it outdated in a decade?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.
Countertop Installation reviews in Grapeland
The quote was detailed and broken down into specific services and add ons. Very easy to understand.
There was the basic demo, and replace. Then a charge for plumbing removal and reinstall. A choice of us demoing all or part of the job or them doing it. Also listed costs of other backsplash options or edging. I really appreciated the quote being broken down so we knew exactly what we were getting.
We opted to do our own plumbing but had them do all the demo. We stayed with standard edging and the 5" matching quartz backsplash. I was sent a comprehensive 9 page contract that included prep instructions for us as well as what were the responsiblities of both parties.
Tuesday they arrived right on time being careful to create a covered path over our hardwood floors. I liked that. Demo and template making was quick. In and out in about 1/2 hour.
Unfortunately, because of late arrival of the quartz from the supplier our install date was delayed one day. But, bright and early Friday they arrived to install the beautiful counter tops. I had to go to work so my husband worked from home. He said it took them about 3hrs.
I couldn't believe how the amazing transformation of our kitchen with just new counter tops. We had started with getting our cabinets extended and refaced but now I don't think they need it. I repainted and replaced appliances and now looks like a totally updated kitchen and it looks great.
We could not re install the faucet or disposal for another day to let the adhesive bind. By Saturday we had a fully functioning kitchen again. (Demo Tues, install Friday, ready to use by Saturday)
I am very happy with the way the counters turned out and by the service we received. I hope to use them again very soon to replace some counters in a bathroom.

went to shop to pick color, rep came over to measure, scheduled install day with owner, crew actually came early and finished in less time than expected. Great crew of installers. Had a question for owner after installed and emailed right back.
