Countertop Updates Increase Home Values

If one of the items on your New Year’s resolution list was to flip a property, sell your house or update your kitchen or bathroom, you should consider investing in new countertops for your kitchen or bathroom.

Investing in new countertops is sure to increase the value of your home, giving you a better return on your investment. New countertops can increase the quality of your living space as well as the value of your home.

Kitchen countertops play a big role in how homeowners interact with their kitchen. If your kitchen countertops are not up to par and outdated, you may not be spending time in the room that should be one of the most welcoming rooms in your home – the kitchen.

If you don’t enjoy your kitchen like you used to, you should consider investing in new countertops from C & C Stoneworks in Greenville, NC.

We would like to offer you some countertop suggestions before you get started:

Granite countertops are sure to increase the value of your house

Are you planning to put your house on the market this year? Sometime in the near future? If so, the beauty of granite countertops along with their value will definitely appeal to potential home buyers. Granite countertops in a kitchen or bathroom add a touch of elegance to any home.

Granite countertops are not only beautiful, but when they are used as upgrades in renovation or flip projects, they also guarantee durability. The long-term durability of the granite countertops makes them appealing to both the current homeowner and future home buyer.

Consider quartz countertops when upgrading your home

You can certainly find inexpensive engineered countertops such as solid surfaces and laminate, but you should remember that quality and durability are something home buyers want in homes. Quality quartz countertops are available at C & C Stoneworks. You get the look of natural stone countertops with maximum durability when you invest in quartz countertops. And, just like granite countertops, quartz countertops will last a lifetime.

One of the biggest benefits of quartz countertops is that they are non-porous, making them easy to keep clean. If you want clean, germ-free countertops, all you need is soap, water and a sponge when cleaning quartz. Home buyers are sure to love the durability and ease of cleaning. Plus, no special sealers are required for quartz countertops.

Marble countertops are a solid investment

There are plenty of manufactured materials that look like marble, but they will never impersonate the real thing. Marble is formed from limestone and sedimentary rocks through the earth’s natural heating process.

The veining you find in marble countertops are the impurities trapped within the rock. As the Earth heats, pressure turns the rocks into marble. This process takes time, but it also makes each piece of marble one-of-a-kind. No two are ever alike, which is something home owners and home buyers find very appealing.

C & C Stoneworks in Greenville, NC  offers a wide selection of quartz, granite and marble countertops. Our experienced craftsman offer excellent attention to detail, personalized service and exceptional installation services.

Stone Countertop Installation – C and C Stoneworks vs. Big Box Retailers

If you are getting ready to start a kitchen or bathroom remodel, odds are a big box retailer will probably be the first place you think to look. You know that they carry a wide variety of products and offer “lower prices.” But, don’t be fooled by their eye-catching tactics, these big box stores are not necessarily the best place to purchase your project materials – especially if your remodel involves a new stone countertop.

When you work with C and C Stoneworks in Greenville, NC, a local fabrication shop, you have the advantage of getting all of your questions answered directly by the person who is going to shape your new, beautiful bathroom or kitchen. We offer personalized consultations to each of our customers so that they fully understand every detail of their project.

Unlike big box stores, we focus on the quality of each piece and not mass production. We are always stocked with rare, expertly curated and exotic products you just can’t find at our competitors. Many times at big box stores, you will only be shown a 4 x 4 sample of the stone. This is not representative of the full piece. C and C Stoneworks will show you the full slab!

When it comes to countertop installation, big box stores don’t always have a qualified installation crew or staff. Our team is made up of experts in design, install and project management. Many times when you purchase stone countertops from a big box retailer, they are installed by a third party. With us, we do it all – from design, in-house custom fabrication and installation.

At C and C Stoneworks we are committed to providing the most eye-catching countertops. We use solid slabs, unlike many big box stores that will piece the stone together with seams. We hide seams and make the grains flow. This is an area where C and C Stoneworks out performs our competitors.

Are you ready to ditch the big box superstores? Call C and C Stoneworks in Greenville, NC for your next remodel or project. We give each of our customers the personalized attention they deserve!
