There’s nothing like the countertop options we have at True Blue Surfaces. Whether you live in a bustling household with young children or enjoy a quiet lifestyle, we’ve got something that suits you.
Stone countertops have a special way of modernizing your space while allowing it to remain classic and true. Stone can be a larger investment than lower-quality materials, it will last as the years pass and trends fade.
At True Blue Surfaces, we’re big fans of stone—both engineered stone and natural stone. We stock countertops in quartz, quartzite, granite, marble, and porcelain. Any of these stone materials can add significant value to your home.
When most people think of using stone for their countertop, they think of granite first.
Granite is a natural stone that comes from deep within the earth. It’s created under high heat and pressure, which makes it unlikely to sustain damage in your kitchen. It doesn’t have an issue with hot pots and pans, and the only materials that can scratch it are other shards of granite and diamond.
If you’re looking for variation, look no further than granite. This stone has tons of colorations and patterns for you to choose from—so many that there’s bound to be something that looks amazing in your kitchen.
Granite doesn’t require much maintenance, but it does require a sealing routine due to its porous nature. But sealing your stone is a simple procedure—just ask us about it.
Marble is for the classy kitchens of the world. It’s a luxurious material that’s been used to ramp up spaces for centuries, which means it’s not only a durable choice, but a timeless one as well. Even if you have a small kitchen, marble has a way of taking advantage of natural light and making the room look spacious.
There are quite a few marble polishes to choose from, such as a mirror polish, which is delicate and fine, or a honed finish, which is soft and practical, and many in between.
Marble needs some extra maintenance because it’s softer and more porous than granite. It requires a sealing routine as well—but the extra maintenance is worth its beautiful looks.
Much like granite, quartzite is a super tough stone. But it doesn’t look anything like granite. Instead, its aesthetics come close to that of marble, which many people find both interesting and alluring.
This stone is formed from sandstone and is incredibly hard to scratch or damage. It’s resilient to heat, chemicals, stains, and liquids.
If you want something that’s as tough as granite but as beautiful as marble, then quartzite is your choice.
Quartz comes in all sorts of styles and looks. Even though it’s a man-made stone and inherently nonporous, it can be made to look just like a natural stone slab. This is great for people who want the “wow factor” in their kitchen but aren’t interested in the maintenance of natural stone slabs.
Quartz includes additives called polymers and resins that bind its particles together and seal its pores. Since resin is a type of plastic, beware of hot pots and pans on your quartz. Always use a hot pad or trivet to avoid scorching or melting.
Porcelain is yet another man-made stone, and it’s known for its intense durability. It won’t burn, stain, or scratch; it’s durable and hard.
This stone also comes in a variety of styles and aesthetics, so it’s easy to find something that looks great in your space. On top of that, cleaning it is simple, and it takes almost no effort at all to keep it looking great.
