When it comes to remodeling your home, your kitchen and bathrooms provide the greatest return on your investment. In fact, even a minor remodeling project can bring more than 100 percent of your investment when it comes time to sell your home. When you consider remodeling your kitchen or bathrooms, you may want to look at natural stone which can improve the value even more. It is important, however, to understand the differences between the most popular stones available.
Granite Countertops In Wynnwood, Pennsylvania
Granite is, by far, one of the most popular options in natural stone countertops. Granite is resistant to scratches and stains. You should always use cutting boards on granite, not because you can damage the surface, but because you can damage your knives. You can clean granite with just mild soap and water, making it virtually maintenance free even though it does require sealing periodically. The sealing process is simple, so you may be able to do it yourself. Granite brings a look of luxury to any room in your home, whether in your bathroom, kitchen or an outdoor cooking area.
Quartz Countertops In Wynnwood, Pennsylvania
Quartz countertops are actually engineered stone, created when crushed quartz is mixed with binding agents and colors to create an extremely durable surface. Because they are manufactured, quartz counters are available in more colors than other types of natural stone and many homeowners like the “warmer” feel of quartz over granite. Always use hot pads and trivets under pans taken from the stove because the binding agents make the counters less resistant to heat. Quartz countertops never need sealing, so they require less maintenance than other types of stone.
Marble Countertops In Wynnwood, Pennsylvania
Marble adds a look of sophistication and luxury to any room in your home. Marble is perfect if you like to bake as the coolness of the stone is perfect for working with dough and pastry. Marble is softer than other types of stone and acidic material can leave stains. It is important to wipe up coffee, red wine or citrus juices as they can stain the counter surface. Like granite, marble must be sealed periodically, but as long as it is, the counter resists mold and bacteria.
