A Crash Course on Dolomite

If you are considering a kitchen or bathroom renovation, and you are considering replacing your kitchen or bathroom countertops, you may want to consider Dolomite. Though it is lesser known than stones like marble, granite or quartz, Dolomite is the perfect choice if you want to get the marble look without the marble price tag.

What is Dolomite?

Dolomite is formed when limestone and lime mud come into contact with magnesium-rich groundwater, which forms the sedimentary rock we call dolomite or dolostone. If you didn’t know any better, you might think dolomite is marble or quartzite. Dolomite is not as soft and fragile as marble but is not as hard and resistant as quartzite.

Characteristics of Dolomite:

Hardness: as we said above, dolomite is not as soft as marble or as hard as granite. This means that it’s harder to scratch than marble but easier to scratch than granite or quartz. With dolomite counters, a cutting board is a must.

Durability: believe it or not, if properly taken care of, dolomite can last for decades. This is much longer than marble. And though it is easier to chip or crack your dolomite counters than your granite counters, it’s still highly unlikely. Dolomite is very resistant to wear and tear.

Stain Resistance: dolomite is less absorbent and sensitive than marble, but it still requires annual sealing. If exposed to acids, dolomite will etch.

Heat Resistance: if you are looking for heat-resistant countertops, dolomite is the choice for you. Dolomite counters hold heat better than quartz, meaning you can set your hot pots and pans directly on them with no problems.

Appearance: one of the main reasons dolomite counters are so popular is the way they look like marble. Dolomite appears sophisticated and makes for a beautiful backsplash or countertops.

Marble is more impressive in looks but is more fragile. Quarts is less maintenance and has great durability but cannot hold any heat. Dolomite looks beautiful, is more affordable, but still needs maintenance. If you think that Dolomite counters are the right choice for you and your home or have additional questions, call C&C Stoneworks at 252-902-5535 today. We can help you pick the perfect counters for your home. Give us a call to schedule a consultation or visit our showroom at 6614 NC Hwy 43S in Greenville, North Carolina.

Make a Statement with Large Format Porcelain

Large format porcelain panels have been around for a while, but they are just now gaining traction as a trend in kitchen and bath design. If you’re looking for a seamless, grout-less solution for kitchen and bathroom remodels, look no further than porcelain slabs. At C & C Stoneworks, we definitely see this as a growing trend among our clients.

Plus, with the advances in modern technology and manufacturing, slab porcelain is now available for bathroom and kitchen countertops, shower walls and floor and even fireplace surrounds. And, with patterns are more realistic than ever, and the end result can be absolutely breathtaking.

In this post, we’re going to look at the pros and cons of porcelain slabs.

What Is Porcelain Made of?

Porcelain is made from natural clay and has been around for thousands of years. The clay used to create porcelain has a high percentage of a mineral known as kaolinite included in it. Along with kaolinite, porcelain contains also includes silica, feldspar and other mineral oxides giving it its durability and strength.

The clay is put into a kiln and fired, with an end result that creates an extremely dense material nearly impermeable to heat, stains, chips and scratches. Pigmented glazes can be added during manufacturing to create different patterns and colors on the slab.

Here are the Pros of Porcelain Slabs.

If you’ve renovated your home anytime in the last couple years, you’ve probably replaced some of your surfaces with granite or engineered stone like quartz. Today, you can include large format porcelain as an option for creating a look of natural stone.

Porcelain slabs have a depth of pattern almost identical to natural marble or granite, and best of all it comes with none of the maintenance issues or use restrictions associated with most natural stone. It is also a very durable material that is much lighter and less costly than natural stone slabs and tile.

Large-format porcelain slabs are a stunning surface that:

  • Require zero maintenance.
  • Is a durably hard material.
  • Can be installed with minimal grout so seams are almost imperceivable.
  • Porcelain slabs are designed for fast installations, produce less waste, and are less expensive than their natural stone counterparts.
  • Porcelain is non-porous meaning it is scratch, stain and heat resistant.

Porcelain slabs can work in most instances. From countertops to backsplashes, shower surrounds to bathroom floors, and fireplace surround to anywhere you want a seamless look. Porcelain slabs are an excellent option to natural stone and come in a wide array of natural patterns. If you’re looking to stay on the cutting edge with your remodeling project, then large format porcelain is a great choice for you.

Here are the Cons.

Every material has drawbacks, and porcelain is no exception! Some of the cons to porcelain include:

  • Large format porcelain is difficult to fabricate.

Porcelain’s pattern does not have designs entirely through the materials, as they are basically printed on the top or glazed onto the material. So, because of this, slabs can be more brittle than something like quartz and can chip.

  • Ceramic knives can scratch the surface of porcelain.

I know we said that porcelain slabs are virtually scratch proof, but ceramic knives are its kryptonite! They are the one thing that can scratch porcelain, so we recommend not using ceramic knives on porcelain countertops without a cutting board on top!

Because the color is not throughout the entire material, if it becomes chipped or scratched, it is very difficult to touch up or repair.

Here’s the Bottom Line on Porcelain Slabs

When it comes right down to it, picking something depends on your style, needs, and budget. If you want to be cutting edge of design trends or you’re looking for a unique material that will make an absolutely stunning impact, large format porcelain slabs are an excellent option.

It can fit into just about any design, from a feature shower wall or fireplace surround to creating a seamless bath shower floor. It is extremely hard and not predisposed to staining or scratching like other natural stone options. Unlike marble, each porcelain slab is uniform, so you won’t need to spend too much time finding the “perfect” slab. In fact, with large format porcelain slabs, you can continue a vein across a complete wall for an extremely high-end look.

The bottom – porcelain is durable, versatile, affordable, and incredibly beautiful! If you’re interested in learning more about porcelain give us a call or make an appointment for a consultation today. You can also view some samples of our work here.

Popular Countertops for 2023

If you’re planning a kitchen renovation or are currently building a new home, we’re here to share some of the most popular types of countertops for the new year.

Kitchen countertops come in all types of colors, materials, finishes, and styles, but some are chosen more frequently than others. You should make sure that your kitchen countertop not only looks good but is also durable and easy to maintain.

What is a Popular Countertop Option Right Now?

There are many countertop options available, but there are some that seem to be grabbing more attention than others right now. We are finding that quartz and quartzite continue to be very popular kitchen countertop choices right now.

Top Countertop Materials You Should be Considering.


Quartz is a manmade stone comprised of up to 93% natural material mixed with resins and pigments. It is a very durable and low-maintenance kitchen countertop option. The artificial pigments in quartz are added to allow the customer a variety of choices, this makes it a more flexible option when you are coordinating other aspects of your kitchen design such as cabinets, flooring and appliances.

The average price of quartz varies depending on the quality. You can find quartz countertops ranging from $50 to $200 per square foot to install, with the average cost being $125 per square foot.

Pros of Quartz Countertops:

  • Easy to clean.
  • Variety of color and design options.
  • Extremely durable.
  • Long-lasting.
  • Recyclable.

Cons of Quartz Countertops:

  • Expensive.
  • Disposed to heat damage.
  • Heavy.


Quartzite is an all-natural stone that will require annual sealing. While it is not as low maintenance or stain resistant as quartz, it is more so than some other natural stone countertop options. Remember, since quartzite is a natural stone, it is limited in color and design because it is not customizable.

The average cost for quartzite is generally the same as quartz, however quartzite is more labor intensive to install, thus ends up being more expensive.

Pros for Quartzite Kitchen Countertops:

  • Heat resistant.
  • UV resistant.
  • Low maintenance.
  • UV resistant.
  • Environmentally friendly.

Cons for Quartzite Kitchen Countertops:

  • Limited color options.
  • Limited design options.
  • Prone to scratches.
  • Expensive to install.
  • Very porous, requires annual sealing.


Granite has been a popular countertop option for many years, but it really depends on the slab. There are certain granite patterns and colors that are out of style, but it is still a durable and fairly low-maintenance option if you can find a slab you like. The most popular granite options right now include lighter and more color choices.

The biggest factor with cost for granite is the size and quality. Granite kitchen countertops can cost between $40 and $100 per square foot plus labor.

Granite Pros:

  • Exceptionally durable.
  • Heat resistant.
  • East to clean.
  • Available in many design and color options.
  • Long-lasting.

Granite Cons:

  • Expensive.
  • Can crack if not sealed properly.
  • Imperfections in the slabs.


Marble is a natural stone and is often the standard kitchen countertop in luxury kitchens. No two slabs of marble will ever be the same because of sourcing, impurities, colors, patterns and veining. Each piece of marble is unique which means marble countertops come in a variety of prices and qualities.

Marble is generally more expensive, but with regular maintenance it will last years. The average cost of a marble countertop is roughly $60 per square foot, but some cost as much as $100 per square foot, plus you have to add the labor and installation costs.

Pros of Marble Countertops:

  • Adds to home value.
  • Resistant to heat.
  • Unique veining.
  • Long-lasting with regular upkeep and sealing.

Cons of Marble Countertops:

  • Expensive.
  • Requires a lot of maintenance.
  • Porous and easily stainable.
  • Scratches easily.


Dolomite is a sedimentary rock with similar characteristics to limestone in its composition and coloring – think gray and white. High polished slabs of dolomite can be confused with marble or quartzite to the untrained eye. But dolomite is not as soft and fragile and soft as marble and not as hard and resistant as quartzite.

The cost of dolomite is less than marble, quartz and in some cases granite. Dolomite costs can vary depending on the supplier, but you can expect the cost to be between those of quartzite and marble.

Pros of Dolomite:

  • Unique slabs.
  • Durable.
  • Resistant to Stains.
  • Heat Resistant.
  • Affordable.

Cons of Dolomite:

  • Requires sealing.
  • Susceptible to stains if not sealed properly.

What Types of Countertops Are Outdated?

Although granite is still a highly requested kitchen countertop material, some styles are considered outdated. Granite was a very popular option in the ’90s and early 2000s, and the darker speckled colors from that time can give a kitchen a more dated look today.

Laminate countertops, plastic coated synthetic materials, are also another outdated material.

How Do I Choose Kitchen Countertop Material?

Countertops are probably the most important design element in your kitchen, so it is important to choose materials that align with your personal style, but also make sense for your lifestyle. You must always keep maintenance and durability in mind, especially if you and your family spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

Standard Countertops vs. Waterfall Countertops

Choosing a countertop can be more difficult than you think. With waterfall counters becoming more popular, picking a countertop just became that much harder. I bet you’re asking. “what’s the difference between waterfall and standard countertops, and why should you choose one over the other?”

When it comes to your kitchen island, standard countertops simply stop. With a waterfall counter, your countertop continues to “flow” over the sides of the counter and goes down to the floor. Each option has a different look visually, and each option has different reasons you may choose to invest in them.

Standard countertops are what most people have in their homes. Standard countertops are a classic; a slab of countertop that sits on cabinets and has a defined edge. People tend to slide bar stools under the edge for a more visually appealing look and provide extra seating. Standard countertops are more affordable, and if your kitchen is smaller, it can be a great way to save space.

Waterfall countertops are more contemporary, with their seamless and clean look. They’re made to stand out and be the centerpiece of your kitchen. Waterfall countertops are almost exclusively stone, not wood or laminate. This, plus the use of extra materials, will add to your overall price.

Waterfall countertops are made to be aesthetically pleasing. Still, it’s important to be aware of your surrounding kitchen so the countertop doesn’t look out of place. Waterfall countertops also tend to take up more space, so this might not be the right look for you if your kitchen is smaller.

Whichever design you think will work best in your kitchen, C and C Stoneworks is here to help. If you need help choosing and installing countertops (standard or waterfall) for your kitchen, contact us today at (252) 902-5535.

Everything You Need to Know About Marble Countertops

Nothing says “classy” like marble countertops. Marble allows your kitchen to have a clean, timeless look. But before you decide to upgrade your kitchen with marble, here’s everything you need to know about marble countertops.

Marble is High-Maintenance.

Can your countertops be high maintenance? Yes, especially if they are marble. Marble is very porous, making it vulnerable to stains (I’m looking at you, red wine). But even oil and juice can damage your marble countertops. The liquid sinks deep into the countertops, making it hard to remove.

But never fear! There is a solution to having your red wine and your marble countertops. Getting your counter sealed every six months to a year (professionally, or you will risk damaging the marble), prevents liquids from damaging your counters.

Marble Scratches Easily.

Every counter gets scratched, but marble is a softer stone. Your marble countertops are far more likely to get scratched than granite counters. This leaves your marble vulnerable to scratches and chips you may not have seen on your granite. To avoid scratches, avoid wearing belts and long necklaces when at your counter, and always cut acidic things on a cutting board. Exposure to acid can also wear down marble’s finish and your sealant.

It Can Be More Cost-Effective – Depending on the Marble.

Did you know that there are different types of marble? If you are looking for an aesthetically pleasing kitchen with the crisp white marble holding the dramatic veins throughout it, you are searching for Calacatta marble – a rare and luxurious stone with a hefty price tag. However, if you are looking for a soft gray marble with more subtle veins, you are searching for Carrara marble (appropriately named, as it is from Carrara, Italy), one of the most affordable, natural countertop materials.

Marble is Heat-Resistant but Proceed with Caution.

That’s right! Marble countertops can help you beat the heat in summer by staying cool to the touch. The stone is heat resistant and can help you to stay cool. But that doesn’t mean they can’t get burnt. Though marble can withstand high temperatures, hot pots tend to burn marble (and other stones) and cause discoloration. It is recommended to use a potholder – even if your countertops are heat-resistant.

Cleaning is More Than a Simple Wipe Down.

To properly clean your marble, you need to apply a couple of drops of mild dish soap to a sponge (on the soft side) and scrub vigorously until you have a nice lather. After you scrub, you buff your counters dry using a rag or a rinsed-off sponge. Remember – marble is porous, so you want to make sure that you take the time to do a good job when you clean your marble.

The Most Popular Countertop Types (And Why)

Are you looking to redo your countertops and wondering which stone will be best for you? We are here to help! Here are the most popular countertop types and why they may be good options for your next kitchen remodel.

1. Granite

No surprise here – granite has been a crowd favorite for as long as we can remember. Because granite is formed near the Earth’s crust, where pressure is exceptionally high, and it is an average temperature of 2300℉, granite is known for being a hard countertop with extreme heat resistance. Granite comes in an assortment of colors and styles, making it popular in kitchens and bathrooms.

2. Quartzite

People like quartzite because it looks like marble and comes in some absolutely stunning colors. Not to be confused with quartz, quartzite is also formed when extreme temperatures meet extreme pressure, creating a smooth, glass-like surface. However, quartzite is more resistant to stains, scratches, and chipping than granite.

3. Dolomite

If you’ve never heard of dolomite, that’s okay! This stone is slowly climbing through the ranks of “most popular countertops” due to its marble-like look and durability. Dolomite is not as hard as granite or quartzite, but it is harder than marble. It is formed when limestone meets groundwater with high magnesium levels, causing the limestone to undergo a chemical change. Dolomite comes in shades of gray and white and typically has streaking (similar to marble).

4. Marble

A lot of people consider marble countertops to be the height of luxury. Marble is created when limestone or dolomite is exposed to the extreme pressure of the Earth’s crust. Marble comes in an assortment of colors, meaning there is something out there for everybody! However, marble isn’t as durable as other stones due to its porous nature. It is easier to stain, chip, or scratch if improperly cared for. If you have small children, this may not be the best choice for your home.

5. Engineered Stone – Quartz and Porcelain

While some stones are naturally made, others are designed to be your countertops. Engineered quartz is popular because it is virtually indestructible – including scratches, cracks, and chip resistant. Engineered quartz typically costs about the same as quartzite would cost, and though engineered quartz is more durable, quartzite is more heat resistant. Porcelain is another engineered stone that is available in almost every style, color, and texture you could dream of. Because it is manufactured with extreme heat, porcelain is also highly heat resistant and incredibly durable.

Get to Know Your Space.

This helps you see what you do and don’t want in your new and improved space and can help you determine if you want anything added in. It is also important to note how you and your family interact with that space, plumbing and electrical systems, and traffic patterns.

Measure, Measure, Measure.

Will You be Making a Splash with Waterfall Countertops? 

Everybody loves a good waterfall in their kitchen – no, not that kind of waterfall. Waterfall countertops have been described as “stunning” and “jaw-dropping” when compared to traditional countertops, and they are an interior design trend for kitchens. Waterfall countertops on your kitchen island waterfall create a seamless, classy look, but do the pros outweigh the cons on this modern feature?

Before we jump into the comparison, maybe you are not sure that a waterfall countertop is exactly. Unlike their traditional counterparts which are flat and sit on cabinets or an island, a waterfall countertop flows over the sides, creating a clean, coherent piece that stands out in your kitchen. This will make your kitchen island really pop. So, is a waterfall countertop right for you?

A kitchen island with waterfall countertops is visually appealing, helping you to achieve a beautiful aesthetic space. Just like flat countertops their durability and clean-ability is based on the product selected. They are made of the same materials – granite, marble and quartz – so the sides are taken care of just like the tops!

Waterfall counters can provide extra storage and can protect your cabinets from damage since they are more concealed. Waterfall countertops can be designed to create more storage space for you in your kitchen. Since your cabinets are hidden, you will still have an appealing kitchen. And a waterfall countertop still allows you to slide bar stools under the countertop for some additional seating.

Since a waterfall countertop uses more granite, marble or granite, they can be more expensive when compared to a traditional kitchen countertop. However, your kitchen is one of the rooms in your house that really increases the value of your home and a statement piece like a waterfall countertop is sure to increase your kitchen’s value and appeal to potential buyers.

Are you thinking about making a splash with an upgrade to waterfall countertops? Do the pros outweigh the cons?

How to Pick the Countertop Edge That is Right for You

You decided to get new kitchen countertops and you had to make a lot of decisions. First, do you want granite, marble or quartz? Then you had to pick the design. Do you like veining or something less dramatic. Do you need a design that is warm or cool? But you didn’t realize that one of the other decisions you would have to make was regarding the countertop edge style.

You may not think that this is as a big a detail as the other choices, but it can have a pretty significant impact on the overall design style of your kitchen. The edging on countertops can make your kitchen design feel dated, modern or somewhere in between – we call it “transitional“.

What are the options available to me?

There are so many edge styles to choose from, that we decided we would make it easier for you by putting them in a chart. We are going to break these down by standard edges, premium edges and custom edges and give you some information about these popular edge styles.


Straight Edge:

Straight edges are perfect if you are searching for a clean design. This edge style is slightly rounded on the corners which protects the stone.

Beveled Edge:

A beveled edge is one of the most popular edge styles, probably because it offers a sleek, angled look.

Quarter Round Edge:

Homeowners pick this edge style for its simplicity and elegance without intruding into the overall design of their kitchen.

Waterfall Edge:

Waterfall edges are great when you want to make your countertops the focal point of the kitchen and highlighting the beauty of the stone you choose. This edge style should not be confused with a waterfall countertop which is a trendy style when the countertop continues down the side of an island or cabinetry.

Ogee Edge:

The Ogee edge offers an elegant, yet classic look that pairs well with a kitchen that is traditional in style.


How do I know what edging is right for me?

Start with the style of your kitchen.

When you are choosing other elements for your new or remodeled kitchen pay attention. When you pick cabinet doors, light fixtures, appliances, backsplash tile and flooring, you could see a pattern developing. Are you choosing materials with curved lines or are you sticking with clean lines and sleek styles? Wherever your style is going for those elements that will help you decide on countertop edge style.

Do you need something family friendly?

If you have young children or grandchildren that are running around your house, you may want to consider an edge that is more rounded. Smooth, clean lines look absolutely amazing, but they are not great for kids. Rounded edges are safer than straight edges.

What is your budget?

Obviously, custom edges are more intricate, and prices are higher on those edge styles. o up. Simple, standard edge styles will be less expensive and more budget friendly than premium or custom edge options because less work is involved. Premium and custom edges are sure to give your kitchen a statement-making countertop, but you may find that the standard edge styles will give you the tasteful looks and style that fits any kitchen at a budget-friendly cost.

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. Call or text us today at 252-902-5535 to set-up a free in-home consultation for your next  countertop project.
