Porcelain Countertops for your Raleigh Home

Raleigh builders and designers alike have been discovering the versatility of porcelain countertops. This man-made material is typically used for tile, but has gained popularity as a countertop surface due to its durability and beauty. It often mimics the look of an exotic marble, but with zero maintenance. Like quartz, porcelain is non-porous and therefore requires no sealing and is stain resistant.

Characteristics of Porcelain Countertops

  • Strength – Porcelain is stronger than the hardest granite. It is stain and scratch resistant as well, making it a great choice for kitchen countertops. Porcelain can also withstand heat and UV light, so it will stay looking brand new for years to come.
  • Maintenance – For simple, everyday cleaning use a soft sponge, water, and dish soap. For harder to remove grime use a little Bar Keeper’s Friend (the liquid version) with a soft sponge. No sealing required.
  • Appearance – Porcelain is loved by many for the beautiful designs it comes in. It could look like a Calacatta marble, or a more colorful exotic quartzite. It also comes in solid colors and more subtle designs to suit any style.
  • Price – Due to the labor intensive fabrication process, porcelain prices are in the higher end range. At Geos, we import our porcelain direct from the factory to keep our costs as low as possible for our customers.
