Choosing the Right Countertop for your Home

Are you thinking about remodeling your kitchen or bath but don’t know where to start? Add beauty and value to your home with brand new stone countertops! Choosing the right countertops  is essential to making sure the style and material fit your family’s needs and to make it a space you love entertaining guests in! AMC Countertops offers different countertop materials for any lifestyle and taste, and we would love to assist you in selecting your countertop, as well as provide measure and installation for a complete all-inclusive service you will love!


Quartz is the most popular choice, and we definitely know why! Quartz countertops are not only a beautiful option but a sustainable one as well. Quartz will exceed your expectations of wear and tear in the kitchen. It is scratch, stain and chip resistant making it a great option for a family who is always in the kitchen cooking and entertaining! Being low maintenance is the cherry on top for quartz since it’s crafted with resins and polymers which make it nonporous, and it never needs to be sealed. One thing to know about quartz is that it is not heatproof, so you need to be careful with pans that just come off the stove and with sustained heat appliances, such as crock pots, frying pans, and electric griddles, but simply by using a trivet, you will protect your surface.

Why choose quartz countertops:

  • Low-maintenance – doesn’t require sealing, just clean with soap and water!
  • Scratch-Resistant – you can cut on it!
  • Stain-Resistant – even wine!
  • Could get a larger return on investment – cha-ching!
  • A wide range of colors and styles – it’s hard to choose just one!

When looking for the right countertops, check out AMC Countertops to view a large selection of styles and colors of quartz countertops.


Dekton is a new material with a wide variety of features that both residential and commercial projects can benefit from. Dekton has a unique and modern look, which attracts people who want a modern or contemporary feel. The material is resistant to UV fading so it’s great for indoor or outdoor use. On top of that, it is super strong and dense so it will not chip, scratch, or get damaged by heavy objects, even more than quartz and granite. Dekton has zero water resistance so it will never stain! What more could you ask for in a countertop for a family? Along with zero water resistance, cleaning or scrubbing the countertop will not damage it. Adding to the list of great features, it can withstand thermal shock from hot pans, ice, thawing or fire. See more Dekton countertops featured on Houzz.

Why choose Dekton countertops:

  • Scratch resistant – the most scratch resistance surface on the market!
  • Stain resistant – not even bleach!
  • Heat resistant – hot pots can be placed directly on the surface!
  • Ice & thaw resistant – can be used even in the coldest environments!

Granite countertops are unique because of its natural beauty and exotic look. No two granite slabs are the same! Choosing granite countertops will add value and character to your home, and the timeless look is always a great choice. Granite is scratch resistant and is hard enough to dull your knives if you cut directly on it! One thing to note is that granite will need to be sealed in order to avoid stains and to maintain its look, but you can request a 15-year sealer and not worry more. In every slab, you will also find the fascinating characteristics such as small crevices, pits and mineral clusters which took millions of years to form. A true masterpiece of Mother Nature in your kitchen!

Why choose Granite countertops:

  • Natural beauty – comes from the earth so no two slabs are the same!
  • A wide range of colors and variations
  • Scratch resistant – will dull knives if cut directly on it!
  • Cost-effective
