Although we do have many slabs to choose from in our yard, we cannot stock all of the possible slab combinations. We purchase our material from the most reputable distributors in the area and you do have the option to view their live inventory online and in person. Depending on your particular needs, we can send you to the right supplier.

TYPES OF STONE
Granite is normally a coarse-grained igneous rock that is composed of quartz, feldspars, and micas. The dark minerals are hornblende or biotite. Granite is by far the most common rock found in our planet’s outer crust. Granite is formed by the cooling of magma in the ground.
Marble is metamorphosed sedimentary carbonate rock. Limestone or dolomite (carbonate rocks) are the typical base minerals. The recrystallization of the carbonate minerals results in marble. Often, the original structure of the carbonate rocks is modified during metamorphism rendering the marble unrecognizable from its original state. The swirling and veins in marble result from mineral impurities, which are in layers in the original limestone or dolomite.
As the name implies, it is a countertop product that has been made of quartz and resin. Before granite slabs were resigned, engineered stone had one major advantage over its natural counterpart; it was difficult to stain. Now with the advent of resigned slabs, that advantage is gone. The primary difference is appearance. Man-made products come in a large range of consistent colors, which do not occur naturally.
