Lightner Granite & Marble, Inc. supplies several types of premium natural stones including granite, marble and slate. One of the most significant advantages of using natural stone is its longevity.
Granite is a natural stone mined from the earth. It is found in a variety of colors and natural patterns--each slab is unique. Granite is durable, scratch resistant, heat resistant, and easy to clean and maintain--the material of choice for kitchen countertops. Granite can compliment old world interiors or contemporary design, and instantly transforms a room.
Granite countertops are a substantial addition to your home. Granite is not just a cost, rather an investment in your home. Unlike most materials, granite significantly increases the value of your home. Today, granite is a must-have in kitchen countertops when buyers are looking to purchase a new home.
Marble is also a natural mined stone and is found in a variety of colors and patterns. Marble is softer than granite and will more easily scratch. Acidic substances will also cause etching. Because of these factors, marble is not a good choice for kitchen countertops. It is more suitable for bathroom vanity tops, bathroom floors, shower stall surrounds as well as fireplace surrounds.
Care for Natuaral Stones:
Never use acidic substances on marble including alcohol, vinegar or window cleaning products such as Windex or 409. It is best not to use these types of products on granite as well. For best results in cleaning and maintaining granite and marble, use a damp sponge and/or products specifically designed for natural stones.
