Granite and Marble

You have a variety of choices when selecting natural stone countertop material. The three major factors that are likely to impact your selection are appearance, ease of maintenance and budget. Granite has become a popular choice due to its natural beauty and durability. Other choices include limestone, marble, onyx, slate, soap stone and travertine. AGS Stone has an indoor display area with a variety of granite colors from which to choose from. We can also direct you to local wholesalers if you would like to evaluate additional selection possibilities. We have included links to several wholesaler websites below.

Quartz

Engineered stone is a composite material made of crushed stone bound together by a polymer resin. Quartz is the major filler, although other material like colored glass, shells, metals, or mirrors might be added. A typical material will consist of 93% quartz by weight and 7% resin. Commonly referred to as Quartz, there are a number of leading brands offering a range of colors, patterns and thicknesses. AGS Stone has a large sample collection in our showroom to assist you with your selection. You can also visit manufacturer websites for additional product information.
