Choosing the perfect countertops for your home

Able & Ready Construction can make your Prescott home remodeling dreams a reality.You’ve been planning that kitchen upgrade and it’s time to pick your countertops. With so many options, Able & Ready Construction suggests Prescott homeowners consider a material's durability, maintenance, cost, home decor, and your lifestyle as factors when choosing new countertops.

Materials

  • Granite is the most popular choice. Each piece of granite is completely unique so no two countertops look the same.
  • Engineered stone countertops are more durable than their natural counterparts.
  • Solid-surface countertops are stain-resistant but can have a noticeably artificial look and feel.
  • Colored concrete in various finishes is another great option for countertops.
  • Wood countertops instantly warm up your room and fit beautifully in traditional or rustic decors
  • Stainless steel countertops have a distinctively industrial vibe. They are resistant to bacteria and don’t get damaged by heat.
  • Marble countertops and their distinctive veins are well-suited to traditional kitchens.
  • Paper-composite countertops are eco-friendly and very durable. They’re heat and water resistant and lighter than those made of natural stone or concrete.


Maintenance - All types of countertops require maintenance but some more than others.

  • Granite countertops can withstand heat and scratches well, but have to be sealed regularly or they can stain.
  • Solid-surface countertops are basically maintenance-free but are susceptible to scratches and burns.
  • Colored concrete has to be sealed frequently.
  • Wood and moisture are not friends, so frequent oiling is critical. Wood is not resistant to bacteria so it must be disinfected often.
  • Stainless steel countertops are virtually indestructible, however, they show fingerprints and dent easily.Marble looks glamorous but it does stain easily even after being sealed.    
  • Paper-composite countertops are surprisingly strong, but they are still vulnerable to scratches and chemical damage.

Cost - Both engineered stone and granite are comparably priced. Marble and stainless steel can be expensive and paper composite countertops seem like they would be the most affordable but that is not usually the case. Wood, concrete and solid surfacing are more affordable options, and the least expensive of all is laminate.

Lifestyle - Are you a gourmet cook? Is your kitchen a picture from a trendy magazine? Do your children do their painting projects on the countertop? Do you enjoy applying pastes and sealers to keep your countertops pristine? Answering these types of questions will help identify the best countertop suited to your lifestyle.

If you're ready to move forward with a kitchen countertop renovation, call the knowledgeable staff at Able & Ready Construction at 928-775-6178 to help you choose the perfect countertops for your Prescott home.
