Consider installing:

  • Marble: Installing a marble counter-top instantly provides a sense of glamour and classic beauty. Marble stands up to heat well and stays universally cool which is ideal for rolling dough for pastry projects.
  • Polished concrete: If you are hoping for an industrial look in your kitchen remodeling project, consider installing polished concrete. Concrete counter-tops can be tinted, may include inlays, and will stand up well to heavy use over time.
  • Wood: A wood countertop is an excellent choice for a traditional kitchen. Wood brings the feel of a shopworn kitchen that is both beautiful to look at and easy to work in.
  • Caesarstone:  Caesarstone quartz surfaces are a superb combination of nature and technology consisting of 93% natural quartz.  Caesarstone is non-porous, heat resistant up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and scratch resistant.  Since the product is highly stain resistant it does not require sealing.
