Stone Countertops

It’s human nature for all of us to be uncomfortable about making decisions regarding products or services for which we do not feel totally informed. Do we acquire a second opinion to validate our first or do we go with a “gut” reaction? Selecting a stone countertop is one of those things we may not be as versed in as we’d like to be. Not a problem with Holz and Stein because we have the people and knowledge to help you make the logical, rational decision you will feel comfortable making and one matching the application for which it was intended. Natural stone countertops such as granite, marble or quartz, varies in strength, wearability, texture and machinability. One variety may be the perfect color for the design but not the ability to withstand the high volume of traffic required while another may have an excess of durability but not meet the style. Spend some time going through the options available (below) in natural stone countertops. If you have any questions afterwards please call (214)535-2521  for clarification or installation.
