If you are thinking of renovating your kitchen or bathroom, know that Star Flooring & Remodeling can help you fabricate, pick up or deliver, and install new San Diego countertops.

They come in different colors and patterns. Let’s look at your options for San Diego countertops.
: This is the best material for countertops because quartz is very strong. It is nonporous so you don’t have to seal it and stains won’t seep in. It resists heat, moisture, bacteria, and stains. Quartz comes in select colors which tend towards ivory, cream, taupe, or black,- with or without patterns. Disadvantages: it is one of the most expensive materials to use for countertops; the color may fade with exposure to UV light.
: Granite is one of the most popular materials to use for countertops. It is resistant to heat, scratches, and cuts. Granite comes in rare colors along with unique veining patterns. Granite is porous so you will need to seal it periodically. Another disadvantage: granite is suspectable to chipping and can split at the seams where two slabs connect.
Butcher Block Countertops
: These are made with slabs of wood which have been cut, shaped, sanded, and finished before made into a countertop. They are beautiful and they give the kitchen a classic look. Disadvantages: wood is naturally porous which means you will need to seal the countertop frequently. The wood will acquire cuts, stains, and blemishes with time. It is possible to re-sand wood countertops to give it a fresh look but for the most part, you simply embrace the aged wood block countertop as “rustic” charm.
