We will be going LIVE at least twice a month, so read on to see what we will be discussing so you can mark your calendars!

Ready to consider new countertops for your home? Or picking countertops for your custom home? Quartz is taking over the Pittsburgh, PA market — and for good reason.

2017 Morgantown Home Show: Visit Preferred Surfaces

[fa icon="calendar'] Mar 8, 2017 1:49:44 PM / by Noel Houze posted in Custom Countertops, Home Show

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

The Morgantown Home Show is a fantastic opportunity for homeowners or landlords to connect with over 100 exhibitors — contractors, retailers and experts. The home show is at the Hazel & J.W. Ruby Community Center in Mylan Park — right across the street from us.

We considered moving our stock across the street for the home show and setting up a booth space to meet future customers. On average, we stock 300 pieces of high quality granite, marble and quartz. After our discussion, we decided moving our stock across the street would be virtually impossible — and we’d risk damaging our beautiful surfaces.

Instead, we invite you to come and visit us. Tour our facility, meet our highly qualified staff and learn about our in-house manufacturing process. We can show you the granite, marble, quartz and solid surface we’re currently working on, along with our stock.

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

If you’ve been considering new kitchen or bathroom countertops, you’ve probably done a fair amount of research online. At this point, you’ve probably narrowed down the surfaces you’re considering and have an idea of the colors and patterns you like. Perhaps you’ve even read through an article or two about pre-fab granite — that it’s cheaper and quicker to install than a custom slab. But is the quality on par with a custom slab? We don’t think so.
