It is hard to imagine that there was a time not that long ago when granite countertops were not the most popular material choice for kitchen remodeling. By the late 1990’s that had changed, and now granite countertops are the preferred countertop of homeowners all over the country in their remodeling projects, including the Fayetteville and Pinehurst areas. Along with granite countertops, countertops made out of other natural materials like marble and quartz are also gaining popularity among homeowners.

When considering natural stone options for your countertops, it is not hard to see why granite has become a popular countertop choice for kitchen remodels. Granite is incredibly durable, second in toughness only to diamonds. It won’t scratch or break easily, and it is simple to clean with just soap and water. Best of all, granite countertops look great in any kitchen or bathroom space. Granite countertops come in a variety of colors and textures, so you’re sure to find the perfect solution to make your kitchen remodel everything you dreamed it could be.

Our professional staff at Fayetteville Granite Countertop Company walks homeowners through the entire granite countertop installation process from start to finish. It all begins when you contact us for a free estimate of your kitchen remodel. As soon as we confirm the project and the granite is selected, our team will come into your home and create a template from your cabinet pattern using wood strips so that we can ensure a proper fit during countertop installation.

As a homebuilder or general contractor in Pinehurst, you have the enormous task of choosing home features that are going to attract home buyers or please the homeowners you are contracted with. When it comes to countertop installation, natural stone options should be a no brainer. Over the past thirty years, natural stone countertops, like granite, have risen in popularity. Today, granite is the preferred countertop for most Pinehurst homeowners.

When considering natural stone countertop options, it is not hard to see why granite, marble, and quartz have become popular countertop choices for Pinehurst. Granite is incredibly durable and second in toughness only to diamonds. It does not scratch or break easily, and it is easy to clean. Quartz is much the same way. A quartz countertop will have a small shimmer quality to it, like a gem, but it is as tough as granite while being slightly more eco-friendly for Pinehurst homes. Marble countertops are another popular countertop option. Marble countertops do require more care because marble is softer than granite, and therefore it is less stain resistant, but they look great in any kitchen or bathroom space.

Creative Stone specializes in granite, marble, and quartz countertops that come in a variety of colors and textures. We also offer a variety of countertop edges to add the perfect finishing touch for Pinehurst homes. Our standard option comes with no additional cost to the homebuilder. We also work with several local North Carolina vendors, giving you even more options in materials. There is no question about it, you cannot go wrong with natural stone countertops made of granite, marble, or quartz. You simply cannot beat the durability of these materials and they look amazing in any Pinehurst residential or commercial space. As a homebuilder or general contractor, your clients will thank you for suggesting natural stone countertops for their Pinehurst project.

Our professional and knowledgeable staff at Creative Stone would love to discuss your clients’ countertop needs with you. Our team will be with you through every step! We have satisfied customers all over North Carolina, including the Fayetteville and Pinehurst areas. Give Creative Stone a call at (910) 491-1225 or stop in to see us in our showroom every Monday through Friday anytime between 8AM and 6PM at our Fayetteville, North Carolina location.

After the long, hot summer that we just experienced, it may be hard to remember what colder weather feels like. The time is quickly approaching though when we will trade our flip flops for cozy socks and insulated boots. Inevitably there will come a morning when you get out of bed, place your bare feet on the floor and quickly pull them back under the warm covers. In that moment, you will wish you had carpet.

It may seem like common sense that carpet is a warmer flooring option than hardwood or laminate, but the why is a little more complex. You can tell immediately once your feet touch carpet in winter months that it is warmer than your bare floor, but did you know that having carpet throughout your home can actually warm it?

That is because carpet acts as a type of insulation, especially if your home was constructed on a concrete slab with nothing below it. When your feet touch the bare hardwood or laminate floor in winter months, the floor surface can be cooler than your body temperature, even if the room is heated correctly. A properly installed carpet will reduce the rate of heat loss in the room it is in, making the room feel warmer.

The type of carpet installed will determine the insulation effect of the carpet. Our team at Magnus Anderson specializes in finding the right carpet flooring solutions for our clients. With so many textures, styles, and colors to choose from, carpet installation is an inexpensive and simple flooring solution. As a matter of fact, according to “Floor Covering Weekly”, more people are choosing carpet over any other type of flooring option. While the most popular choice is carpeting made of durable nylon fiber, many clients are opting for a natural fiber like wool as well.

Are you interested in keeping your house warmer this winter by installing carpet? Let the professionals at Magnus Anderson help you! The staff at our Fayetteville, North Carolina location are certified and trained flooring professionals who have a history of impeccable workmanship and unrivaled customer service.
