Ahwatukee Carpets offer many countertop selections, from standard Formica to Granite to Marble and Quartz. Granite is a stone quarried from the Earth. Each slab is unique offering movement and uniqueness from slab to slab. It is very heat resistant. Marble is a softer stone than granite, yet offers colors like whites and greys that aren’t typically found in other stones. Quartz is made from crushed quartz mixed with pigments and resin to bind the material together. Quartz is not porous and is highly resistant to staining.
