When designing the kitchen of your dreams, keep in mind that the most striking aspect of your entire project will likely be your countertops. This makes your choice in countertops not just important, but critical, to the look and feel of what is arguably the most important room in your home.

Corian® Quartz Countertops
Corian® Quartz (formerly Zodiaq® Quartz) was one of the first quartz surfaces on the market, in 2000. Engineered with pure quartz crystals, quartz countertops from Corian® Design let you bring the best of both worlds – nature and science – to your kitchen, bath and throughout your home. Unlike other materials, you never have to seal, polish or recondition the surface to maintain its luster. It can be easily cleaned with soap and water and doesn’t require sealants or waxes.
Cambria, Family Owned, American Made, is dedicated to transforming natural quartz into breathtaking surfaces that are astonishingly elegant as individual surfaces and as components of a larger vision. Quartz is one of the hardest minerals on Earth. Because of its strength and abundance, quartz is a popular and reliable choice for countertops. Quartz countertops are sometimes referred to as “engineered” or “man-made,” but quartz is in fact a natural stone. The amount of natural quartz in a slab depends on the quartz manufacturer. Cambria is among the highest concentration of pure quartz to ensure strong, compact slabs. Cambria quartz is durable, maintenance free and nonabsorbent. Start your design story with Cambria.

Whether you are thinking of new granite counter tops in your kitchen with a matching dining room table or a new look for your outside garden furniture, natural stone adds character and warmth to any area of your home or business. Granite has a distinct richness that synthetic materials simply cannot duplicate. And the elegance of granite, when properly installed and sealed, can last a lifetime.
Installation is probably the most important aspect of your countertop project. All joints must be fit and re-fit to insure tight joints. All sinks, bowls and appliance cut-outs should be carefully checked for dimensions and should be trial fitted or installed according to manufacturer specifications. All tops should be caulked, inspected for inconsistencies and corrected with a final seal applied on all granite tops. And of course the job site should be cleaned and all trash removed.
With Gulf & Basco’s certified installers on the job, we take care of it all with the utmost in care and professionalism. Upon completion of each job, a final walkthrough is conducted with the customer for review of both the countertops themselves as well as the installation work. In addition, both manufacturer and installation warranties are available upon request.
