Can I cut on my granite countertop?

That depends on the granite you select and only if you want to ruin your good knives! Most granite is harder than your knife blades and will dull them very quickly, if you use the countertop as a cutting surface. Always cut and chop on a wooden or plastic cutting board. We never recommend cutting on marble surfaces as it is prone to scratching.

Will natural stone stain?

It depends on the stone you select but in short, yes it can. Granite is the best countertop and least resistant to staining and more than likely will not. Marble is more prone to staining. Sealer helps prevent staining but, but we do recommend wiping up spills immediately. Serious stains can be almost completely removed and any etching can be resurfaced if either is truly bothersome to you. Read here for info on stone stain removal!

What are remnants? Can I buy remnants for small projects?

Remnants are smaller pieces of stone or smaller sections of slabs remaining from another project. Most fabricators and suppliers sell remnants and sometimes offer price discounts on leftover pieces. You cannot special order remnants – what you see is what you get. Remnants work great if you only need a small portion of stone for a bathroom vanity, shelving, a laundry room, window sills or for small desks and tables.

Can I use a natural stone surface outdoors exposed to the elements?

Yes. Outdoor countertops add a beautiful complement to pool areas, decks, and patios but require more maintenance; especially in regions like ours with seasonal changes. When considering natural stone for outdoor countertops, be sure to select a hard stone. Some types of stone are softer than others and will weather and stain easier.
