Chicago Custom Kitchens offers the following Countertops:
Granite: Granite is a coarse grained crystalline igneous rock composed primarily of quartz and feldspar. It forms from slowly cooling magma (silicate melt) that is subjected to extreme pressures deep beneath the earth’s surface. With public awareness increasingly turning to the use of natural materials in the home, the diamond-like hardness of granite makes it virtually impervious to abrasions, stains, and extreme heat.
Laminate: Laminate countertops come in a range of styles. Laminate sheets are glued to the particle board and then edged with laminate, wood or solid surface strips.
Solid Surface: Solid surface is composed of minerals, acrylic resins and colors that combine for an exact look in a broad range of colors and designs. Solid Surface offers the look of natural stone, the manufacturing process ensures consistency for very good color matching at installation.. Consistency of pattern and color, plus chemical bonding to fuse solid surface pieces provide very inconspicuous seams.
Engineered Stone (Quartz Surfaces): Engineered stone combines the functional benefits of solid-surface material with the great look of natural stone. Engineered stone is mostly made of crushed natural stone (93 percent) that is bound together by acrylic or polyester resins. Anyone looking for zero maintenance on a kitchen countertop should consider this product.
