Whether as part of a complete Residential or Commercial package, or countertops for your existing cabinets, CCi offers all types of countertops to “top off” your project. We are unique in our ability to provide almost every type of countertop material available.

There are many countertop materials available and they all differ in the way they look and function, and can vary dramatically in their cost.

The list below reviews the materials available and some of the major brands we work with.


A natural stone with beautiful colors and patterns to choose from. The wide variety of colors typically requires the customer to go to a slab warehouse to choose their individual slabs. Granite is a porous material that needs to be sealed yearly, and is extremely hard and durable. Minor damage to granite is repairable.
Granite Colors - a great site to view many different natural stone colors

Quartz is made up of natural stone chips cast in a polymer base. A “man made” Granite. It is a nonporous material, so it does not need to be sealed and extremely hard and durable. Minor damage to quartz is repairable.

Glass is usually used as an accent or protective top over wood tops such as a desk area or reception counter. It is very durable but can break if hit with a hard object. Tempered glass should always be used in countertop applications. Glass is not repairable.

Solid surface
Solid surface is the only material that allows for almost invisible seams and integral sinks. It is a fairly soft material that will scratch, burn and stain. Slight damage to solid surface countertops can be easily repaired, more serious damage must be professionally repaired.
Richlite - a “green” material

The most commonly used metal is stainless steel. It is used mainly in commercial applications and sometimes in residences. Brass, copper, steel and other metals may also be used to accent a specific area. Metal is very hard to damage but also hard to repair.

Wood is most commonly used for desk and furniture tops or as butcher block tops for cutting surfaces. Wood is easily repairable if it has an oil finish such as on a butcher block top.

Laminate is the most widely used and affordable of all materials. There are hundreds of colors and many edge treatments available. Laminate is not repairable.
