Popular Countertop Materials You Can Use for Your Remodel

Choosing the right kitchen countertop for your remodeling project is important. After all, your choice will have a large impact on the design and functionality of your kitchen, and you’ll be using your countertop for many years. Handyman Connection® of Jeffersonville discusses a few of the popular countertop options on the market and their benefits:

  • Quartz – Engineered stone or quartz countertops are known for strength, durability and low-maintenance qualities. In addition, they are non-porous, so you won’t need to seal them and they are resistant to staining and bacteria. They are also scratch-resistant and they have a very hard surface. Quartz countertops also look great. Manufacturers can enhance them with colorant to produce any hue you can imagine while they retain the appearance of natural stone.

  • Granite countertops – Granite is a classic material that many homeowners love because of its versatility. This material is available in a wide variety of shades, including beige, white, black and green. No two granite countertops look exactly alike. However, keep in mind that this material requires periodic maintenance to stay strong and beautiful. Granite needs resealing, if you don’t want food and drink stains to stay.

  • Concrete – Using concrete for countertops is a new development. We suggest this product for homeowners who enjoy versatility. You can completely customize concrete countertops and they are available in trowel, ground and pressed finishes. However, you need to seal your concrete countertops up to four times per year and wax them with a paste every two to three months. This prevents discoloration.
