    Isn't granite expensive?

    It is true that up until a few short years ago, only the very wealthy could afford granite. But today, with the advancements that have been made in the quarrying, shipping and fabricationi of stone, this is no longer the case. As a general rule, there is now a wide selection of granite that prices out very competitively with Corian, Avonite, and other plastic solid surface material.

    Isn’t granite porous? What about sealers?

    Granite is the next hardest material to a diamond. There are some granites that are more porous than others however, all of our granite countertops are sealed during the fabrication process and again upon installation. The rule of thumb is that when the water no longer beads up, it’s time to re-seal. For some folks that’s two years, for some it’s 4-5. It depends upon usage.

    Doesn’t granite scratch easily?

    No. Granite is a very durable work surface and has proven itself over the centuries. The only things that can scratch granite are carbide, diamond or another piece of granite.

    How do I start the process to obtain a design for my kitchen?

    Call our Peoria or Normal showroom to arrange a time to sit down and speak with one of our designers. When you come to that appointment, bring your house plans for new construction, or your room dimensions for remodeling. Also, it is great if you bring your own ideas that you have been collecting from magazines or pictures online. Our designers will ask you a lot of questions to be able to best create your space for you. It is important for us to know what you like, how you or others in your home cook, how you entertain and how the kitchen relates to the rest of the house. Every person is unique and so is every kitchen.
