Granite, Marble, Soapstone Countertops - Buyers Guide


For countertops the main choices for quality countertops are:

Natural Stone - Granite, Marble, Soapstone, Limestone, Travertine, Quartzite and others

Engineered Products - Quartz & Recycled Glass.

Any of these products are far superior (investment value, durability and beauty) to such products as:

  • Plastic laminate
  • Plastic solid surfacing
  • Cultured marble
  • Tile
  • Concrete.

For home resale value, granite offers the best combination of return on investment and reduced time on the market. Many homes won't sell without upgraded countertops and it is a shame to install granite just to sell your home. If you do it earlier, you will get to enjoy the luxury of granite yourself.

Heritage Stonecraft offers a large array of over 500 colors of granite and other natural stones, and Engineered Quartz products from Silestone, Cambria, Legacy, Hanstone, Quarella, Caesarstone and others. Plus we have recycled glass products from 5 different manufacturers.

Most of our customers find the best place to start is our spacious showroom where all these materials are on display as well as whole granite slabs in over 20 colors. You can also see a large selection of complementary natural stone and porcelain tiles for floors and backsplashes, plus custom cabinets, sinks, faucets and grills for outdoor kitchens.
