The Whitehouse Announced New Tariffs on Chinese Imports Including STONE!

The Whitehouse announced plans  for a 10% ad valorem tariff on $200 billion of imports from China in more than 6,000 product categories.
 The list includes nearly all dimensional natural stone, agglomerated slabs (which include quartz surfaces) and an assortment of other hard surfaces, including some ceramic tiles.
In retaliation, the Chinese, beginning this fall, will raise prices for U.S. importers a whopping 10-20%. American consumers, Wholesalers, retailers, and Fabricators (like us), get ready for prices to jump!😱

PREFAB VS. FULL SLAB COUNTERTOPS (THE WHOLE TRUTH)


When choosing stone countertop materials, you’ll be faced with more than just a huge variety of stones to choose from; you’ll also have to choose between custom countertops (full slab), and (prefab) countertops, so which is the right choice for your countertop?
Here are the pros and cons of each to help you decide:

Prefabricated Countertops
Prefabricated stone countertops are made of the same high-quality materials as their customer counterparts. The only difference is that they were cut to certain standard dimensions before being delivered to the distributor. This means that they only come in specific sizes and shapes, so if you have an unusual space that you want to put your countertop, prefabricated counters might not be an option.
However, if there is a prefabricated cut that fits your countertop needs, they’re a great option, because a prefabricated counter will usually cost you a bit less. Plus, installation is typically much quicker, saving you even more money.

Full Slab Countertops

When you purchase custom countertops, you have a lot more control over what you get. You can choose the color, thickness, and shape of your counters—but you’re going to pay a higher price tag for it. When going this route, you select the exact slab you want, then the Fabricator measures your space and does all the cutting to make the slab fit. This also gives your counters a seamless look, because they’ll be cut from a single slab.

There’s no right or wrong choice between prefab and Full slab, and most importantly, G & G provides both!

Granite vs. Quartz Countertops: Pros and Cons

 Granite vs. Quartz Countertops: Pros and Cons

When deciding on new countertops, you will want to take several things into consideration. Do you go with granite? Or should you stick with quartz countertops; durable and easy to care for? Well, have no fear, because we’re laying out each and ever pro and con of there is. You will be able to Figure out what’s important to you and your kitchen. And then figure out which choices fits the bill best!

Quartz Countertops 

Beauty and durability come together nicely within a quartz countertop. Trendy, stylish and incredibly versatile, going the man-made route has a lot of benefits and some challenges too. There’s a certain amount of luxury that one feels when they add quartz countertops throughout their kitchen. So let's discover the why – and why not – to go this route when it comes to your renovation!

Pro:
Manufactured,  as mentioned before, this is a man-made product, so  for there’s a wider range of colors available than when going with a natural material like granite or marble. You’ll get your pick of the litter, essentially. Also, quartz countertops are waterproof and can be used with an under-mounted sink!


Pro:
Non-Porous, because it is a non-porous material you won’t have to worry about re-sealing the tops! The resin binds all of the crystals together making it a zero pour zone and exceptionally sanitary – which is absolutely perfect for the kitchen.

Con:
Not As Heat-Resistant be careful with the hot pots and pans! Quartz won’t ever be as heat resistant as granite or other natural materials. Don’t just throw your hot pots and pans on the surface on these countertopsbecause it can and will cause damage! A sudden change in temperature could cause your quartz to crack or even melt if it gets too hot.

Pro:
Quartz won’t harbor bacteria or viruses in its hard-to-clean pours because it doesn’t have any! Just clean the tops and be confident in it. You won’t find and extra cracks or crevices to clean here, so there aren’t any germs settling in to areas that you can’t reach or clean.


Pro:
Durability, because this is manufactured material, the durability is top notch like that of concrete and rivals granite. Of course, it’s not completely indestructible but will be very hard to use and abuse with normal, everyday wear. If you want to make a good comparison though, we all know how strong diamond is, quartz is just as hard.




Granite Countertops

Naturally-made countertops are extremely popular, making granite one of the most trendy of choices. But before you dive into your purchase be sure that you’re doing your homework. Know the ins and outs of what make granite such a great choice for your kitchen and why you may want to stray away based on your personal needs.


Pro:
Natural granite is 100% nature made, and quarried naturally. If you’re looking for organic materials then this is the first choice! 



Pro:
Durability, just like quartz though, granite is also extremely durable. It can last a lifetime when taken care of correctly – of course, keep in mind, that it isn’t unbreakable. As long as you aren’t consistently banging extremely heavy objects on top of the counters, your granite will last as long as the house does (if not longer). What’s even more beneficial about granite countertops is that you have the option to chop, cut and even slice right on the surface without worrying about any harm done. Finally, along with its durable nature, it can withstand the heat! Hot pots and pans will generally not burn or scorch the granite!


Con:
Not uniform, but because of its 100% natural quality, you will never get a completely uniform appearance. It was designed by nature so no two pieces will ever be the same – but remember, you get to choose your slabs so choose wisely.



Pro:
One-of-a-Kind, we may have written about how its non-uniform appearance can be a con but some of us see it has a huge pro! We love how eclectic and unique each and every piece will be. The chicness and slick topping that granite countertops will not only give to your kitchen – but your entire home – is unlike other materials and that’s truly because of its one-of-a-kind appearance.



Con:
Sealing, granite does have pours and will need to be sealed year-after-year. And because of these pours you’ll need to pay attention to the possibility of staining and bacteria buildup. But as long as you keep the surfaces sealed, you won’t have to worry about all of the germs or the fear of stains. Keep in mind that lighter granite requires more attention when it comes to the sealing process though.



Pro:
Variety, although, quartz and other man-made materials will always have a larger variety when it comes to color (and patterns), you’d be surprised what you have to choose from with granite! Sometimes there can be around 20 choices to think about with different mineral contents and striations. You also get to choose your edges as well – fortunately you can add some personalization here as well with both beveled edges or even going with some bull-nose ends

MARBLE QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS TOP 5 TIPS FOR YOUR KITCHEN

TOP 5 BEST TIPS BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR KITCHEN COUNTERTOP PROJECT

#1 THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HAND TOOLED & MACHINED

*  Ask  your Fabricator/Installer if they are going to use hand tools or CNC(computer numerically control)-type machines, for your stone fabrication.
(Using hand-tools makes it are virtually impossible for needed straight lines to be cut).

*  Where will the majority of your stone fabrication be done?
(The bulk of all fabrication should be done in a shop away from the project, for health reasons, as well as straight line precision that can only be done by machines).

*  If you are requesting specific edge details, are you edges being fabricated with an air/water combination edge machine?
(Edge detail requires very specific equipment, make sure your fabricator has access to them).


#2 KNOW THE "LINGO."

To ensure the success of your project, know how to communicate to the fabricator/installer the basics. This  video will show you how to take easy measurements, of your cabinets,  walls, or an outdoor space, you want to beautify, and easily communicate it!

#3 SET YOUR BUDGET BEFORE YOU BEGIN

* Fіgurе оut thе соѕt оf what уоu nееd, аnd what уоu саn аffоrd tо buy.
* Set a budget for "unplanned expenses."
* Remember to include cost of labor and materials, taxes and any shipping cost.
* Budget for stone, labor, construction, BEFORE appliances.
(Remember you can always choose less expensive appliances, solid carpentry and stone fabrication labor is essential to the success of any project).

#4 KNOW YOUR STONES!  

GRANITE  
Pros:
 Granite countertop has been popular in home designs in the recent years. They’re aesthetically pleasing as well as durable. They also come in many different colors and designs, which make matching it to the style of the home easy.
ConsGranite has become a little less popular in the last year. Some people find the swirling design and fleck too busy. It’s also expensive as it’s a natural stone. Granite is also a porous stone, with tiny holes in it making it not as hygienic as other stones on the list.

QUARTZ
Pros: A Quartz countertop is quickly becoming the most popular choice amongst builders. It is stain, scratch and heat resistant. It’s also much more budget friendly than marble or granite. Manufactured quartz can also be designed to look like marble without the cost or poor durability.
ConsQuartz can be manufactured which some people find not as glamorous or luxurious. The man-made factor of it makes it seem less exclusive to those looking to build custom luxury houses.

MARBLE
Pros: Marble is a classic stone. It has come in and out of style but the good news is it’s back in. It screams luxury more than any other stone on this list. If you need a custom countertop, marble may be the way to go. Due to it’s softer state it’s easier to cut and fabricate into custom styles. The cool white and neutral tones of tans and grays make it a stone that can work in both traditional and modern spaces.
Cons: There’s a reason marble is equated with luxury- it’s extremely expensive. Like granite, it’s also porous and susceptible to chips, cracks, and stains.

Which to Chose?
There are so many choices when it comes to stone countertops. There are both natural and manufactured stones available in a variety of styles, colors, and prices. Ask either Richard or Gagik  about which style would work best for your home and look the best with your home architectural design.

#5 CUSTOM EDGES, THE FINISHING TOUCH

You've spent so much time and energy picking out the perfect stone for your countertops. Don't forget there's still one more thing to do: select the edge profile. This tutorial video will teach you not only the different edge choices, but give you insight to which custom edge is best for you. Remember most "pre-fab" stone either comes mitred,square edged or bullnose, Full slabs comes un-edged. Some edges cost extra because they are more labor intensive, keep that in mind when budgeting.
