The first step towards your new countertop project is researching what type of stone is right for you. SBN Marble Inc. carries several types of solid stone surfaces including Granite, Marble, Travertine, Limestone, Slate, Onyx and Quartz.
Granite- A very hard, resistant stone made of crystallized minerals. Its polish is not subject to etching by mild household acids, or scratching by mild steel under normal use. It is also not affected by typical kitchen heat such as hot cookie sheets. A polished slab of granite is also impenetrable making it very safe for food preparation and easy to clean and maintain.
Marble, Travertine, Limestone, Slate and Onyx - The main component in these stones is calcium, which means they can be affected by acids such as vinegar and citrus beverages. Typically, these stones are used for vanity and furniture tops and due to the fact that they are easier to scratch and affected by acidic substances, such as vinegars, ketchup, lemons/limes etc. we don't usually recommend using in kitchens.Get Quote
