Jones Stone and MarbleGranite for Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia
Jones Stone & Marble also carries CaesarStone and Zodiaq Quartz engineered stones. Made from blends of crushed natural quartz crystals and high performance stain resistant polymers that are compacted under intense vibration, vacuum, and pressure, these dense, non-porous tops retain their luster without sealants or waxes. They also are resistant to scratches, chips, and cracks.
Why do some people prefer man-made surface counter tops to granite or marble? It comes down to lifestyle. Man-made quartz surfaces are a snap to clean up, and keep even the toughest stains from juice, fruits, vinegar, wine, and tea from permanently staining the counter tops. They are ideal for counter tops, wet bars, wine cellars, and work stations.
Although these surfaces are near maintenance-free and can withstand normal cooking temperatures from pots, pans, and dishes, they are not invincible. That is why it is advisable to rest pots or pans that are just removed from a stove to a trivet or hot pad. We also recommend using a cutting board and wiping up food and liquid spills on these surfaces as soon as possible.
