Eckard's is proud to offer a wide variety of countertop materials that fit every budget and style. Every material has its pros and cons. Quartz, laminate and granite are three of our most popular materials, but we have many more.
When it comes to kitchen countertops, there are a variety of materials to choose from. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks, so it’s important to select the one that will be the best fit for your home.
Laminate is a popular choice because it’s affordable and durable. However, it can also be scratched or stained relatively easily, so it may not be the best option if you have young children or pets.
Quartz is another popular option because it’s durable and non-porous, making it resistant to scratches and stains. It’s also heat-resistant, so you can use it as a cooking surface. However, quartz can be more expensive than other materials.
If you want a natural material for your countertops, granite is a good choice. It’s strong and durable, and comes in a variety of colors. However, granite can be expensive and needs to be sealed periodically to protect it from staining.
Modular granite is a newer option that combines the benefits of granite with the affordability of laminate. It’s made up of small granite tiles that are assembled like a puzzle, so you can choose any color or pattern you want. Modular granite is also heat-resistant and resistant to scratches and stains.
So, which kitchen countertop is right for you? Consider your budget, lifestyle, and the look you want for your kitchen. Talk to your contractor or kitchen specialist to get more advice on which material would be best for your home.
