Laminate is the most cost-effective option for our clients. Since it is not heat or stain resistant, it can easily be dented or damaged by hot plates or scratches from knives. However, it can last upwards of 20 years with proper care.

Postformed laminate is a 100% man-made product. It is a high pressure laminate surface that is bonded by performance-grade glue to particle board. 

More than 250 colours are available through our supplier - in a variety of edges and finishes. At all times, we stock 17 of the most popular colours.

 

Laminate comes from our supplier in 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12 foot pieces, then cut, mitred, and capped by our countertop experts. Install is often performed by our professionals but laminate is available in supply only. 

Quartz is our more popular choice of stone, and can last a lifetime under proper care.

 

Engineered quartz is a man-made product that contains 91-97% natural constituents and has colours, binders, and resins added for colour and consistency. Quartz is non-porous, chemical resistant, and does not require annual sealing. It is also stronger and more durable than granite.

Colour selection is larger, more consistent, and many more whites, greys, and simple patterns can be found in quartz. We have over 100 colours available. 

Stone is special ordered, custom designed and shipped on pallets to our manufacturing facility already sized to fit. Install is performed by our professionals and is not available for supply only. 

Granite is a natural, mined material, and cut into slabs. Granite is heat, scratch, and dent resistant, but it is possible to crack. With proper care, granite can last a lifetime. 

Granite is a very dense material that is porous. If untreated, it can absorb liquid and stain. In addition to it being sealed prior to leaving manufacturing, it must be resealed every 9-12 months by the client.*

Granite colours are often darker and busier patterns but no consistency is guaranteed. We have over 30 colours available. If necessary, we can provide photos from our manufacturer of slabs for client's choice.

 

Stone is special ordered, custom designed and shipped on pallets to our manufacturing facility already sized to fit. Install is performed by our professionals and is not available for supply only. 

*With the exception of our Sensa Granite line  by Cosentino. It is treated directly from the quarry in Spain and does not require any sealant of any kind over its lifetime.
