SOAPSTONE
A light coloured natural stone with a slippery "soap-like" texture. It is made mostly of talc, a very soft mineral and thus is very malleable and easy to cut or shape. Aesthetically, soapstone creates a very natural "rustic" look that can also be used in modern designs. Soapstone is also known as steatite and is often used instead of granite or marble.

GRANITE
A Granite counter top always makes a statement. Its natural beauty creates a unique and yet elegant impression that you can be sure will never go out of style. Granite comes in wide range of colours and is classified into three pricing categories (low, medium and high range). The Granite is sealed to protect against staining and surface damage. However, if desired, it can also be polished. Granite has become one of the most popular materials for kitchen counter tops and many other applications. Granite is a solid and durable material that will retain its beauty for a lifetime.

MARBLE AND LIMESTONE
Marble and limestone have the same properties as Granite but are softer and lower in density. They are usually used in bathroom renovation (too soft for kitchen counter top applications). They also need to be sealed to prevent staining.

CULTURED MARBLE
Cultured marble is a precise blend of polyester resin, catalyst, fillers and pigments, thoroughly mixed and placed into open molds which are coated with a clear gelcoat. In layman's terms, it is a mixture of fiberglass resin and crushed limestone that creates a tough, durable, non-porous and shiny surface that is very stain resistant and easy to maintain. Cultured marble is even softer and lighter in weight than normal marble or limestone and thus is also generally only used in bathrooms.
