Marble is metamorphosed sedimentary carbonate rock. Limestone or dolomite (carbonate rocks) are the typical base minerals. The recrystallization of the carbonate minerals result in Marble.
Often, the original structure of the carbonate rocks are modified during the metamorphism to render the marble unrecognizable from its original state. The swirling and veins in marble often result from mineral impurities which are in layers in the original limestone or dolomite.
Granite is normally a coarse grained igneous rock that is comprised of quartz, feldspars and micas. Granite is formed by the cooling of magma in the ground. Granite is a hard and tough stone, which was used throughout history in different areas of construction, but most recently has captivated the attention of designers as a decorative stone for the interior.
“This is how granite countertops start out”.
Quartz is known as engineered stone. Quartz slabs are fabricated in a factory helping protect the environment from the quarrying process. Nowadays, quartz slabs come in a wide variety of colors. Kitchens featuring quartz countertops are attractive and maintenance free.

Of course we will. Champion knows how to build beautiful countertops, and just as important, we know how to remove the old ones without damaging your cabinets and floors.

We do it for you we make the process easy and worry free…hire Champion Stone and get Quality results!
Yes, we stock a large inventory of granite remnants that can be used to design vanities, fireplaces, dinner tables and many more granite works. We also have remnants of other types of stone.
Let’s look together for the perfect remnant.
In most cases the answer is never.....or years and years after it is installed. Sealers are solids that have been emulsified in a solvent. They are designed to penetrate the stone taking the solids with them. When the solvent evaporates (think paint) the molecules lock into the stone and seal it. Combine one good coat of a quality sealer (which we will do for you in our shop) with the resin applied by the factory you will have a very stain resistant top that will be virtually maintenance free. Rarely, if ever will you need to seal granite that has been resined and properly sealed.
Over time, in the unlikely you do see some water absorb into the stone simply reseal. We can help you if your countertops need to be resealed.
