Recycled glass countertops are manufactured by combining 80% recycled glass and 20% bonding material. We love these beautiful one of a kind masterpieces because in addition to creating a unique work of art, we are helping to save the environment by reducing the glass that ends up in a landfill. Plus, recycled glass countertops are available in virtually any color, pattern and shape because they are created from concept to reality in your home. Recycled glass countertops require some maintenance, such as sealing, they stand up extremely well against heat and items that would otherwise scratch other countertop surfaces. Recycled glass countertops are very versatile because they can be molded into virtually any style, shape, and color scheme, working well in a new or existing home or business!
Since granite is a natural product because it is mined from the earth, each piece of granite has natural variations in both color and patterning. There is yearly maintenance because it must be sealed. However, granite countertops are very durable and long-lasting because they are both heat and scratch resistant.
Quartz countertops, also called engineered stone, are a manufactured product. This primarily consists of 93% quartz and about 7% added resin. Unlike granite, quartz is non-porous, does not require any sealing, and is scratch and heat resistant. However, quartz is highly recommended for indoor use only because it is affected by prolonged exposure to UV radiation from the Sun. While quartz does not have the originality and spectrum of colors that granite offers, there are still many different color options available.
Marble countertops are also mined from the earth like granite is. Marble is rich in vibrant and elegant natural designs and has an inviting warm look to it. However, while it resists heat quite well, it scratches fairly easily and is quite porous.
