Which Countertop is Best for You?

One of the best parts of a kitchen renovation in NH is getting to choose all those great finishes! Finally, your home is starting to piece back together, and you’re finalizing all the materials you wish to use but are still unsure of your countertop material. You want it to look great, but you also want to know if it will be the right choice for your home.  If maintenance is your concern, Blackdog Builders has a few thoughts on some of the most popular materials.

Granite

Still one of the top choices for homeowners around the country, granite comes in a variety of colors and styles. This durable, natural stone can be the perfect option for those looking for little maintenance. Re-sealing is commonly needed just once a year.

Quartz

Comparable in price to granite, quartz is a fantastic and stylish option for busy families. This engineered surface is virtually maintenance-free and non-porous. Re-sealing is not necessary as it is with natural stones, and it can stand up to the wear and tear you need for your kitchen.   

Wooden

Not only is this a practical option, but it can also transform your kitchen into the cozy cottage you have always dreamed of. This surface is ideal for food preparation and has high heat resistance. Upkeep might involve re-sealing dependent on the sealant originally used.

Marble

Maybe the most timeless look of all, marble offers you a splash of elegance in your kitchen. Marble requires a little extra maintenance than other modern countertops on the market. They must regularly be sealed and gentle care to prevent staining.
