Manufactured stone:

Manufactured or Engineered stone, or agglomerate stone, is a synthetic material made from chips of natural stone combined with cement, polyester, or epoxy resins.

Polished Countetops:

This common finishing technique brings out the beauty of stone counter tops by reflecting their natural crystals. Progressively finer polishing heads are used to get a shiny surface. Limestone, marble, granite & travertine counter tops are commonly polished.

Honed Countertops:

Honed flooring finishes are created by stopping before the last polishing stage. This allows for a softer, flat matte appearance that shows fewer scratches, and is easy to maintain. Marble, and limestone do well with this type of finish.

Flamed Countertops:
