Five Questions to Ask Before Buying Countertops

Q. What grade of stone do you sell?
A. “First Quality!” There are different grades of stone in the market today. While they appear similar, there are color, structure, and quality differences that dictate how the stone is graded at the quarry. At GRANITE & MARBLE WORKS, you will only get the highest quality stone… “First Choice” or “First Quality.”

Q. Does your company handle all of the fabrication and installation of my stone?
A. Yes. We do not subcontract or outsource any part of the process. You will deal directly with GRANITE & MARBLE WORKS employees every step of the way. We will provide complete one-on-one consultation, guidance, and design expertise. We aim to make the process fun and easy for our customers… with hassle-free sales, service, and support.

Q. Can you repair any cracks, chips, or stains that develop over the life of my countertop?
A.Our skilled craftsmen are specially trained to do all types of repairs. They are not only technicians, but also artists!

Q. Can I buy my sinks and faucets from you? Who does the plumbing?
A. Yes. Not only do we carry sink and faucet options, but we’ll also do the plumbing work for you! Ask about our “Remove & Reconnect” service option.

Q. How do you stay connected to the stone market and industry colleagues?
A. GRANITE & MARBLE WORKS is a long-standing member of the Marble Institute of America (MIA). MIA is the largest trade association in the world to represent the stone market and it sets the standards for workmanship and ethical excellence. We also attend industry conferences and international trade shows to stay up-to-date on the latest technologies, trends, challenges, and opportunities.

Natural Stone Vs. Synthetic Material

There are many advantages to using natural stone in place of synthetic materials such as Corian, Formica, porcelain, or ceramic tile.

Origin: Synthetic or manufactured solid surface countertops are made of man-made materials, most often acrylic, but also polyester resins, marble dust, and other pigments. Stone countertops are made of… Well, the Earth!

Environmental Impact: Made primarily from non-renewable resources, the production and manufacturing of synthetic countertops are very energy-intensive, and the materials are not recyclable. Natural stone, on the other hand, is Mother Nature’s original “green” building material… 100% recyclable.

Cost: Most people consider natural stone to be a more expensive option. Not only can natural stone be affordable and comparable in price to man-made products, but its resilience proves cost-effective over time. Synthetic material, on the other hand, requires periodic replacement and costly repairs. Natural stone will last a lifetime.

Return on Investment: Natural stone has a high return on your investment when it comes time to sell your house. Granite ranks very high on the typical buyer’s wish list. Synthetic countertops won’t be as appealing to some buyers.

Beauty: If you’re trying to match apples to apples, nothing can reach the luster and depth of real granite or natural stone. Synthetic materials are merely imitations of the real stuff. Because granite is a natural stone, no two countertops are alike. Your countertop will have a distinct design and pattern. Color selection for natural stone is generally more extensive. With man-made products, a certain color is produced exactly the same every time.

Durability: Synthetic countertops are vulnerable to heat, dents, discoloration, and scratches. Granite is naturally hard and strong, and offers a high level of resistance to staining, scratching, and heat.

Marble In The Kitchen

Today’s designers and architects often suggest marble and other soft stones in a kitchen for aesthetic reasons. People have used marble in kitchens for centuries, and the patina that the stone develops from use is part of the beauty of the stone. This is a viable option provided you are aware of the intricacies of such an installation.

Marble and other soft stones can be porous and may stain easily. At GRANITE & MARBLE WORKS, we address this issue by applying a permanent sealer to the marble countertop upon installation. Sealing protects the stone from discoloration, but the surface of softer stones can be “etched” by acidic elements like citrus, vinegars, coffee, etc. If you use these products, you will likely experience etching on your marble. In addition, due to the heavy-duty use of kitchen counters, marble is a risky choice.

Seams

At GRANITE & MARBLE WORKS, we aim for seamless countertops. We stock the largest slabs we can find, giving us maximum flexibility to accommodate your design needs. That being said, it may be necessary to put a seam in your countertops for a variety of reasons such as the layout of your project relative to the size of the slab and/or the access to the jobsite and work area. At your template appointment, we will discuss seam placement with you.

We take pride in our craftsmanship, especially when it comes to seaming. The quality, precision, and finish of the seams in your stone tops are a high priority for us. We have developed a method that makes seams tight, smooth, and flat. Visit our showroom and ask to see a sample of our beautiful seam work.

Thickness & Weight of Granite

The density and weight of stone will vary from color to color. Most of the granite we stock is 3 centimeters (1 ¼ inch) thick and weighs between 16-22 pounds per square foot.

Overhangs & Support

Stone countertops can often be extended beyond the cabinets to give an added functionality to kitchen spaces. There are several variables that must be understood to determine when additional support is needed for overhangs. The maximum overhang depends upon the hardness of the stone, the intended use of the space, and the overall cabinet design. Extended islands, higher level bar tops, and peninsulas are some of the areas of the kitchen that may have an extended overhang.

We will discuss overhangs and support requirements at your template appointment. If needed, GRANITE & MARBLE WORKS will provide additional support(s) as part of our installation service and at no additional charge. This is accomplished by securing steel bars or plates between the stone and your cabinets, creating a permanent support that is almost invisible and does not hit your knees.

Pits & Fissures

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Pits and fissures add to the charm and uniqueness of natural stone.

In today's natural stone industry, many species of granite receive a resin treatment at the factory where the blocks of granite are cut into slabs and then polished. The treatment is used to fill micro-fissures, indentations and other minor characteristics that are found in many natural stones. The reason for the resin treatment is to address what most consumers consider as imperfections, but in reality are "birth marks.” The consuming public gravitates to perfection, defined as no "birth marks," and so the marble and granite industry tries to fulfill the desire.
– Marble Institute of America

Pits: Pitting is normally due to the fact that granite is a natural product that has a crystalline structure, sometimes resulting in small spaces between the varying mineral crystals. Various steps are taken during the finishing process to reduce the visibility of these pits, but they cannot be totally avoided in all stone types. Pitting will NOT become worse with regular use or with the passage of time.

Fissures: These look like hair-line cracks in the stone, but are just surface features and will not widen or grow over time. Fissures are a natural result of the heating and cooling of the stone during its formation millions of years ago. They do NOT affect the structural integrity of the stone.

Daily Care & Cleaning

To keep stone countertops clean, use a microfiber cloth to dust-off the surface. Clean with mild soap and water or a stone cleaner formulated with a neutral pH. Use a clean soft cloth for best results. Never use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners. Here are some other helpful tips for natural stone care:

DO blot-up spills immediately. DON'T wipe the area, it will spread the spill.
DO use coasters under glasses, particularly those containing alcohol or citric juices.
DO clean surfaces with mild detergent and water.
DO thoroughly rinse and dry the surface after washing.
DO protect countertop surfaces with coasters, trivets, or placemats.
DON'T use vinegar, lemon juice, or other cleaners containing acids.
DON'T use abrasive cleaners such as dry cleansers, scouring powders, or soft cleansers.

Sealing Stone

True, you don't have to seal engineered quartz materials... but the supposed "hassle" of sealing granite and the frequency required has been greatly exaggerated by. . . MARKETING (courtesy of manufacturers of competing countertop surfaces and producers of stone sealers). The "sealing" issue should not be a relevant factor when deciding between countertop materials.

DEFINITION: Sealers are below-surface, penetrating-type products (better referred to as “impregnators”), designed to fill the pores of the stone to inhibit staining agents from being absorbed by it.

Most of the stone at GRANITE & MARBLE WORKS is resin-treated at the factory, adding a layer of protection to the stone before we receive it. When we install your granite or marble countertop, the last step we take is to apply a permanent sealant to provide an extra barrier against liquid absorption. You shouldn’t have to do anything more to your stone, besides enjoy a care-free lifetime of use!

Plumbing

At GRANITE & MARBLE WORKS, we like to make things easy for our customers. That’s why we offer an optional service called, REMOVE & RECONNECT. For a nominal fee, we will remove/discard your old countertops, disconnect your plumbing, install the new countertops, and reconnect your plumbing… all in one day! Otherwise, in addition to removing the old counters, we ask that you disconnect the plumbing before we arrive to install your stone and reconnect the plumbing after we leave. If we are installing onto new cabinets, then your contractor/builder will take care of any water, gas, or electrical connections that are necessary.

Surface Finishes

Polished: A polished finish leaves a clean, glossy, and almost slippery appearance – similar to a glossy photograph – the full color, depth, and crystal structure of the stone is visible. It is created when a stone surface reaches its most refined stage. It is buffed to the highest level possible, giving the stone a very elegant and rich look. This is the most common finish used for countertops.

Honed: This is a fancy term for a “matte” finish – similar to a matte photograph – little to no gloss, non-reflective, non-slippery, satin appearance. This finish is created by buffing the stone to slightly less than the highest level. The result is a smooth but dull appearance. A honed finish refers to any level that is less than polished and therefore encompasses many levels of dullness.

Leathered: "Leathering" is the process of texturing granite or marble to appear less glossy. This process amplifies the natural characteristics of granite or marble, resulting in a finish similar to suede leather… not only soft in appearance, but also soft to the touch. The texture will vary depending on the type and composition of the stone, an act of mother nature which gives each material a unique color, feel, and appearance.

Discoloration: Staining Vs. Etching

Staining: The porosity of natural stones varies greatly, and so does, of course, their absorbency. We seal our products during installation to help prevent staining; however, this process does not make the stone 100% impervious to liquid. Some stones may absorb liquids, and if such liquids are staining agents, a stain might occur. A stain is usually darker than the stained material, while the surface finish of the stone remains smooth.

Etching: Other "discolorations" have nothing to do with the porosity of the stone, but rather are a result of damage to the stone surface. If the discoloration appears to be lighter in color (may look like “water spots” or “water rings”), it is probably an etch mark. An etch mark is a chemical burn that forms when acid, ammonia, or alcohol comes into contact with the calcium carbonate element that exists in certain natural stones. These marks look like the finish or the shine has been removed from the surface of the stone. The area that is etched can feel a little rough to the touch. Etching is most common on marble, quartzite, travertine, onyx, and limestone surfaces.

GOOD NEWS!... Stains can usually be removed and most etch marks can be repaired. Just give us a call! Our skilled craftsmen are specially trained to repair your stone and protect your investment.

Sink & Cooktop Cutouts

There is usually very little stone leftover from a cutout – the pieces that are left are irregularly shaped and need to be cut and polished. If salvageable, there is a charge to fabricate these pieces to make them suitable for use. [WARNING: Scrap pieces are heavy and can scratch your new tops!]

Radon/Radiation

Does granite emit harmful radiation? The answer is that granite has been tested and found to emit very insignificant levels of radon. Granite is found to be safe for usage in homes without any harmful effects. You can read several publications and reports about this topic on the Marble Institute of America’s website (www.marble-institute.com). Here is an excerpt from their publication, The Truth About Granite and Radon/Radiation:

Over the past few years there has been some consumer confusion about rumored radiation levels occurring in natural granites used for residential countertops, floors, tiles, etc. Unfortunately, the origin of these concerns are advertisements and other communications from the manufacturers of radon detection devices and the producers of competing synthetic materials. Levels of radiation from granite products, though technically measurable, are in fact small fractional values of established thresholds for environmental safety.

The truth of the matter is that granite is a safe product. It’s been used for thousands of years and the relationship between granite and radon has been studied for years and years. How safe is granite? Numerous independent, scientific studies have concluded that granite countertops are safe.

  • King Brothers Builders sent us to Granite & Marble Works. We were not disappointed. From the beginning right through the installation, the sale was handled professionally and creatively. Mike came out to measure and offered sink options and other suggestions. We did go back to the showroom to mark out where we would like the marble to be cut. This was suggested by the staff and definitely worth the time (20 minutes). George and Chris we fabulous at installing the counter, making adjustments where necessary. They foresaw a problem with our floor installation and suggested how we might handle it. They even offered to put back our old counter top if we wanted to wait until the floor was installed. They were so patient. We could not be happier with the service and quality we received from Granite & Marble Works. Thank you Mike and Margaret and all the staff for your friendly, professional service.

    Holly B.– Saratoga Springs, NY
  • This is the second time we've used them for tile install and granite countertops. Every time we deal with them they are just easy to deal with. They are perfectionists as well. They measure everything to one sixteenth of an inch so everything is cut to very specific dimensions. They are just really great people to work with. We called them and said we wanted to change something because we wanted it to look different and they were great. They gave us an estimate as we went along and made changes to the project. They did our kitchen in November 2009 and they were amazing. They came in and basically cleaned up our project that other people messed up. They did better than I could have ever thought it could be finished. They were fantastic in that. They've always been very good craftsmen and they are easy to work with.
    Josh N. – Ballston Spa, NY

  • Margret and her team were friendly and professional in the shop. From measurements to installation, every arrived on time. They were available by phone or email if you needed anything or had questions. The granite price included the sink which was a rare find. What was even more rare was that they did not require us to remove the counters for measuring. Only on the day of installation were the old ones taken off. That was awesome.
    Laurie L. – Clifton Park, NY
  • Margaret did an outstanding job helping us to select an ideal slab for our (smaller) project from their very large selection, including giving excellent advice on the design. The pieces arrived just ahead of schedule and were in perfect condition. And when a piece was broken during installation (by others) they delivered a replacement piece in less than a day, allowing us to stay on schedule...

    I wanted to maintain the character of a circa 1920's bathroom, while adding modern conveniences. For this renovation, I needed to add a new section of marble backsplash to match an existing vanity and backsplash.

  • “We had Granite & Marble Works design and install the granite for our kitchen. We first worked with Jeff to pick out the color in their showroom. At first it was overwhelming with all the choices but Jeff helped us whittle the choices down to one that met all our needs. When we were ready they came out to template the counter and the gentleman who came out, who was also the owner, was so nice and professional. Within a week and half they were back to install. There were some issues that had to be addressed during the installation and Ray and his team worked to overcome them and made a potential stressful situation, seamless. Ray returned the following week to set one last remaining piece and you couldn't ask for a better representative of the company. Ray knows his stuff and is the type of gentleman you would want to be in front of your customers. Thank you Margaret for a wonderful experience with your company and please feel free to use us as a reference as a fully satisfied customer.”
