If you’ve never embarked on a major home renovation or remodel that involves countertops, you might have some questions about how it all works. We’ve compiled an ever-growing list of common questions people have about natural and engineered stone countertops.
- Easiest – Engineered Quartz – No sealing, resists staining and etching. No worries, super easy!
- Easy – Granite, Quartzite – Yearly sealing is recommended, but strongly resistant to staining and etching.
- Moderate – Marble, Travertine, Onyx – High in calcium, these materials can etch and stain fairly easily.
- Special Cases – Soapstone, Slate – Each of these materials require certain types of care on an “as-needed” basis.
