    FAQ’s

    What is granite?

    Granite is an organic, beautiful, and elegant choice that most modern homes and kitchens implement to bring a fresh, classy, updated, and clean look. Granite is a coarse-grained mineral, hence the word “grain” embedded in granite that formed in magma as igneous rock.

    Don’t think that because granite is a mineral, it only comes in grey or black. Granite also comes in red and yellow as well, depending on where the granite was formed and the amount of pressure and heat introduced to the rock during formation.

    Because granite like most rocks, is porous, granite needs to be sealed properly in order to maintain the smooth, glossy surface that Urban Countertops provides post-installation. Without proper sealing and maintenance, damaging oils and water can seep into the porous surface and damage your perfect counters.

    What is marble?

    Marble is a type of metamorphic rock that is known for its beauty and high price, but still some choose to use it as countertop material in a kitchen. While there is no denying the exquisite nature of marble, it is one of the stones that require extensive care and the application of sealant. If marble is not properly cared for, it can quickly be permanently stained.

    Homeowners that choose to incorporate marble into a kitchen countertop scheme would do so simply for the pure beauty of it. While it shares all the properties of other stone countertops, marble has a unique color quality that shows dramatic contrast between the overall color and the veins of alternate color. The alternative to using pure marble is to use cultured marble for countertops. While the price is not any less expensive considering the fact that all cultured countertops are one off custom creations, it is the incorporated sealant and resin properties that make it a lower maintenance alternative.

    What is quartz?

    Quartz countertops are man-made engineered stone countertops formed by combining 90% ground quartz (a natural hard mineral) with 8-10% resins, polymers, and pigments. This forms a very hard granite-like surface. The appearance depends on how the quartz is ground: coarsely ground quartz produces a flecked appearance, while finely ground quartz produces a smooth look.

    How do I clean my countertop?

    It is best to use soap & water for day-to-day use. Please do not use any harsh chemicals or bleach.
