The Beauty of Granite without the Maintenance
Engineered Granite, is a blend of ground marble and granite partials, colorants and polyester resins, is manufactured at a price comparable to pre-fabricated and mass-produced acrylic. Engineered Granite has many other benefits over God’s granite. It is far less cumbersome and much more versatile. It can be molded into almost any shape, and is commonly used in the manufacturing of bathtubs, whirlpools, vanity tops and fireplace mantels. In addition, it can be colorized to match any decor. The advent of engineered granite makes luxury affordable and brings the rich history of marble into any home. State of the art advancements in gelcoat technology help keep the finish on the surface on the Engineered granite bright and clear for many years with easy cleaning.
Because cultured products are cast, there are numerous options in terms of size, shape and edge treatments. And, the final product is nonporous, meaning no need to seal year after year and no grout lines to clean or maintain. Just imagine swapping out a tiled shower for a grout-free option and the low-maintenance advantage of engineered granite becomes very clear!
Beautiful – Veining and patterns can be incorporated during the casting process, creating character, depth and interest that mimics its natural counterpart.
Low Maintenance – Engineered Granite never needs to be sealed and is easy to clean with non-abrasive products. Can be waxed to add more luster for a very long period of time
Durable – Just like Cultured marble, the Engineered Granite is non-porous, making it extremely tough and resistant to stains, mildew and chips.
Economical – In general, engineered granite is much less expensive to fabricate and install than slabs of granite but will increase the overall value of a home just as natural stone products will.
Customizable – Because it is a cast product, just like cultured marble it offers a wide range of color options and pieces can be shaped to fit your specific needs and decor.
One of the methods we use to help keep the system Simple is to offer all transparent pricing and to breakdown the quote, so you can see exactly what you are paying for and what is not included in the pricing. This way there are no surprises along the way creating tense, awkward situations during or at the close of the project. This eliminates the “the salesperson said the shower came with that and you guys would mow my grass when you finished the installation”.
The available Engineered Granite Showers consists of a choice of colors and configurations. The pricing is the same for most of the sizes in each group and that helps us to keep in line with Simple concept.
