A polished finish, the most popular, results in a shiny look and often darkens the appearance of the stone, while honed and leather finishes are soft and matte. Costs for granite depend on many variables, including color, finish and origin of the stone. Professional installation is included in the pricing and qualifies as a tax exempt capital improvement in New York State.
Other natural Stone
Materials, like slate and soapstone, are softer than granite and require delicate use and greater care. All stone countertops must be sealed periodically.
Engineered Stone Countertops
Engineered stone come in a wider variety of colors than natural stone countertops, are more durable and are easy to maintain and do not require periodic sealing. Typically these are a quartz material and may be easier recognized by brand names like Cambria, Zodiaq, & Silestone. These products tend to be colored much more uniformly than granite and the product is frequently confused for granite. However, engineered stone won't save any money over granite: the two materials cost roughly the same. Like Granite, these products also include professional installation in their pricing and qualify as a tax exempt capital improvement in New York State.
