Countertops Salem VA
Virginia’s Natural Stone Experts since 1996.
Whether in the morning for the first coffee or tea or the preparation of a tasty brunch or even a private culinary party – your kitchen should welcome you every day! Your natural stone kitchen countertop should be distinct. Noble and robust as it shines under your knife, pan, and pot.
While cabinetry will be the main style decision you make for your kitchen, never underestimate the impact your countertop choice will have on the overall scheme. Along with the flooring, it sits on a horizontal plane, making it highly prominent, so it’s important to give it due consideration. Our Showroom staff at Rockfab Kitchen and Bath will be able to help you choose the right countertop for your kitchen and bathroom.

What Kind Of Countertop Material Should You Pick For Your Custom Home?
It’s a common misconception that granite is the best choice for a custom countertop. While it is truly a beautiful material, many other options are available. You must consult our experts in Rockfab Kitchen and Bath to pick the right countertop material.
Granite, Quartz, Marble, Travertine, and Soapstone are all wonderful choices that offer distinct advantages over granite. If you want to learn more about these materials, keep reading below!
Wanted granite for your countertops? We aim to leave you speechless with our countertop collection. Our most selling product has always been the granite countertops Rockfab fabricators have created with excellence.
The granite countertops are the most durable and resilient 100% natural stone available aside from diamonds, rubies, and sapphires. Each cut is completely unique from any other. Because the feldspar in granite makes it resistant to scratching, heat, degradation of color and texture, and the silicates protecting it from stains and acids, granite is an ever-growing favored choice for structural and decorative purposes for kitchen and bath remodeling.
Quality makes granite a popular choice by contractors to install for new countertops, vanities, flooring, entryways, fireplaces, and more.
One benefit of shopping granite countertops with Rockfab in Salem VA is that the in-stock slab you choose here is the slab you get – cut, and will be installed and fabricated by our design consultant the exact way you specify the finished product! We give excellent service in custom stone fabrication and an installation process for your granite stone countertops.

Unlike natural-stone slabs, quartz countertops are engineered in a factory, typically consisting of about 94% ground natural quartz with 6% polymer resins. The resins give quartz countertops their color, bind them together, and help make the material nonporous, stain, and scratch-resistant – eliminating the need for quartz countertops to be sealed. Ideal for indoor flooring, veneers, and decorative tiles.

MARBLE NATURAL STONE
Marble is recognized worldwide to be among the most elegant and luxurious natural stones. Its high-gloss polish, style, and texture offer a wide variety of rich colors, with choices of veined or solid varieties. Due to its porous nature, it is very susceptible to scratching and staining. Being more likely to stain than granite and quartz, marble countertop is favored mainly for bathrooms, flooring, fireplaces, walls, table tops, and vanities, but they still makes an affordable and amazing countertop.
There are many different colors and styles available when it comes to marble. This gives you a wide range of choices, allowing you to find the perfect look for your kitchen or bath countertop and cabinets. Whether you prefer a sleek, modern design or a more rustic and traditional aesthetic, marble is sure to meet your needs and help create a beautiful space in your home in Salem VA.
Formed by hot spring water flowing through underground limestone, travertine is uniquely characterized by natural patterns, veins, and cavities giving it a subtle distressed, earthy appearance like natural stone. To ensure a smooth, stain-resistant, and durable surface, travertine is often filled with cement, grout, or resin. If a more natural and unusual surface is desired, the filling can be left out. Travertine is most commonly seen in outdoor kitchens and indoor tile flooring, as well as vanity countertops, fireplace surrounds, exterior cladding, outdoor patios, and various specialty items such as sinks and light switch plates.
Quarried like granite and marble natural stone, soapstone is largely composed of the mineral talc, and is thus rich in magnesium. The talc in soapstone gives the stone a smooth feeling, like rubbing a piece of dry soap. Although it feels soft to the touch, soapstone is quite dense and resists staining. Slightly less impervious to scratching and denting than granite, extra care must be taken with soapstone. Also, we recommend avoiding putting hot items on its surface, as it retains heat longer than most other stones. Typically, people with more traditional homes with a vintage feel go for the soapstone for the outdoor kitchens and bathroom countertops.
IT’S IMPORTANT TO CHOOSE A COUNTERTOP MATERIAL THAT WILL COMPLEMENT AND ENHANCE YOUR HOME.
You’re probably wondering: “What are the most important considerations when choosing a countertop material for my custom home?”
First, it’s important to choose a material that will complement and enhance your home.
The style of the rest of your kitchen and other areas in the house will affect your choice here. Consider things like your skill level at DIY projects and how much time you want to invest in maintaining the countertops themselves.
Next up is budget—you’ll definitely want to think about how much money you’re willing or able to spend on these surfaces. If you’re building an entire kitchen from scratch, it may make sense for you to splurge on higher-end materials with more expensive upkeep requirements; alternatively, if yours are only going into an existing space with existing appliances, cabinets, and lighting fixtures then maybe there isn’t much pressure for them to look perfect all by themselves!
