Countertops are often the hardest working areas of our homes. We want them beautiful, but durable. And of course, we want them to be easily maintained. Countertops have the potential to dramatically enhance the look of your home. At Jung Tile & Granite, we offer you the most popular options in the industry! Talk with us about which surface might best suit your needs.
GRANITE - An ever-popular choice for residential and commercial applications, granite is naturally harvested from quarries worldwide.Granite offers strength and durability, with the uniqueness of a snowflake in that no two pieces will ever be identical. Commodity stones (those that are most readily available) will be more consistent in color and movement, while the more dramatic stones will see wide ranges of variation in color and movement patterns. Granite is templated, fabricated, and installed by skilled professionals with decades of hands-on experience and a proven track record of customer service. It is pre-sealed during the fabrication process, making it easy to maintain for at least a year. Clean it by washing with a neutral pH soap and water or with an alcohol-based cleaner. Resealing your granite countertop is as simple as waxing a car. As long as water holds a bead on the surface of your granite, you can rest assured that your seal is strong.
QUARTZ - Quartz surfacing is another popular option. This man-made, non-porous, hard surface material makes it a maintenence free choice. Quartz is available in beautiful solid colors, in colors with minimal movement, and some manufacturers are now making it with more dramatic veining and colors to mimic the look of marble, granite and limestone. Maintain by cleaning with neutral pH soap and water. Voila! You're done!
SOLID SURFACE - Acrylic solid surface countertops such as DuPont Corian, LG Hi-Macs, and Samsung StarOn have the added benefit of being easily repairable if damaged. Additionally, the customer has the option of an integrated sink. Available in solid colors and solids with varied colors of "flecking." Maintain by washing with neutral pH soap and water.
LAMINATE - Offering the same longevity and durability that you knew in grandma's home, this traditional countertop surface has undergone upgrades in design to now offer the warm look of wood, the designer look of natural stone, and contemporary patterns and colors. It's attractive and still a viable, low cost option for countertops in kitchens, baths, and utility rooms.
All of these countertop options lend themselves to a wide variety of backsplash options.
