Marble Or Granite Countertops: Which to Choose for Your Anchorage Home?, Anchorage, Alaska

There are dozens of decisions involved when remodeling your home; kitchen countertops may seem like an afterthought, but the materials you choose are actually very important. The experts at Rino's Tile & Stone in Anchorage, AK, will compare and contrast a couple of the most popular options—marble and granite—to help you determine what's right for your home.

Granite countertops are highly durable, resisting cracks, chips, and stains with easy annual re-sealing; if they're used frequently enough, they may require re-sealing on a monthly basis instead. Marble countertops are quite strong and resistant to breakage as well, but because they are porous they’re more likely to stain. You can easily fix minor scratches on either of these materials yourself, but bigger issues should be left to the professionals.

On the other hand, marble countertops feel high-class and elegant, giving off a luxurious vibe. Some people may think granite is too trendy, while others admire marble for its beauty but know it wouldn't match their interior design. Granite countertops also tend to be less expensive, but if you have your heart set on marble, you can save by buying it in tiles instead of slabs.

Rino's Tile & Stone only stocks the highest quality materials, so whether you pick granite or marble countertops you'll be getting the best there is. Their staff will discuss the pros and cons of each material with you to determine which would be most suitable for your home. This includes being mindful of your lifestyle, budget, and deadlines.

Whatever you select for your kitchen countertops, you'll receive skilled craftsmanship and unbeatable service from Rino's Tile & Stone. Call today to set up your consultation at (907) 743-1075 or visit their website to learn more.
