Watch out for low countertop prices that seem too good to be true.

Typically we at Quality Stone Concepts, field phone calls where the question is asked: “what is your price on granite countertops?” Even though it seems like a straight forward question, we always struggle with how to answer that question.   Without seeing the kitchen, measuring it, and knowing exactly which countertop the customer wants, it’s really a best guess as to what the final price is going to be. However we realize that most shoppers have seen a print add or walked into Home Depot and seen the amazing deal on granite for $35 per square foot. That sounds super-affordable right?  You’ve probably measured your current countertops and calculated the square footage, you’ll have the price for installing new countertops, right? Not so fast, why does [...]

Marble Kitchen Counter-Tops – What you need to know?

Shadow Storm Marble Marble counter-tops can give any home a timeless and classic feel. Marble is typically known for its bold veining, crisp white color, and it’s unique properties. One thing to consider is that marble is significantly softer than granite and quartz. Marble ranges between a 3 and 5 on the Moh’s Hardness Scale, whereas quartz and granite are both above a 7 on the Moh’s Hardness Scale. This means that marble is more likely to scratch and etch than granite or quartz. Marble is calcium carbonate based, which means acidic foods, cleaning products, etc. will cause etching. A sealer will help protect marble tops from acidic foods and cleaners, however, it needs to be applied at least once a year. Utensils, [...]

I’m dreaming of a White Quartz Kitchen

  So you say you want white quartz countertops?  You know, the kind that looks like marble that you saw on Pinterst. How much does that cost? Well, as you see in the picture, there are approximately 40 different options available to you.  Some have a grey base like real Carrara Marble and others have a more white background.  Some have deep veins like a Calcutta Marble, while others have more subtle lines.  Not to mention there are at least 20 different brands of quartz available, so doing a real comparison would be a time consuming equivalent of finding a needle in a haystack.     Let a real industry professional guide you with your project, not an hourly employee at a Big Box Store.  [...]
