At Rock Solid Custom Countertops, LLC, we think most would agree with us that it would be a boring world if there weren’t so many options for the various things in life that we enjoy. Imagine only having vanilla and chocolate ice cream, for example! That is why, when it comes to providing custom countertops for our customers in the Triangle area of North Carolina, we endeavor to have as many materials to choose from as possible. Each has its advantages and aesthetic differences, so we’ll work with you to get the best option for your renovation project.

Custom Countertop Materials to Choose From [infographic]

•  Granite- Choose granite if you love the idea of a unique result, as no two slabs are the same. It is also an ideal solution if you want to add value to your home, have counters that are sanitary and easy to clean, and want something that can handle the heat of a pan.

•  Marble- Marble is quite durable, as are most natural stones, although marble isn’t quite as hard as granite. It holds the same ability to be distinctive, but with the added bonus of staying cool, making it a popular option for bakers and even professional chefs. Another advantage is that it can be more cost-effective.

•  Dolomite- Dolomite is another natural stone that is growing in popularity. It is an ideal option when you want the look of marble with the added strength closer to that of granite, as it offers the best of both worlds.

•  Quartzite- Not to be confused with quartz, which is a manufactured product, quartzite is a metamorphic rock. If you desire the look of marble but want something on the higher end of the Mohs hardness scale, this is a good option for you. In fact, since it is rated a 7, it is actually harder than granite and all other natural stones used for countertops.

•  Quartz- Quartz is a manmade product created from sandstone. If you are looking for a strong option in a wide variety of colors that is also a good option for stain resistance and reduced bacteria growth, quartz is a good choice.
