Stone Countertops and Sealing Them
The Last Countertop You’ll Ever Own
Who doesn’t love a huge slab of white stone on an island? Clean, crisp and classic. But when selecting a countertop material, all of us are focused on questions like: Will it stain? Will it etch? What kind of maintenance does it require?
The answers to these questions varies, depending on the type of material selected. Every species of stone is different and the same organic properties that make them beautiful also cause different answers. Marble is the softest of all stones – easily stains and etches. Quartzite is more resilient, but still needs to be treated with care. Granite is the toughest, but doesn’t come in pure white.
