Oakton Granite and Quartz Countertops
One of the easiest and most cost-effective things you can do to improve your home in Oakton is to put in granite and quartz countertops. The best places to put them are in your kitchen and bathroom, although you can also put them in your living and dining rooms as tabletops. What isn’t so easy is finding a reliable company to supply and put them in.
Sure, you can find a ton of companies online by simply putting in the search string “granite and quartz countertops Oakton.” In fact, you will get more than 80,000 results. However, not all of the companies listed will be reliable. You will have to do more research.
To narrow down your choices, make a list of the companies near Oakton within half an hour’s drive or so. Once you have three or four likely candidates, check out the testimonials on their websites as well as review sites such as Houzz or Yelp. You can then weed out companies that do not have a good track record. In most cases, you will end up with Silver Marble Granite as the leading contender.

What we did in Oakton
Suburban families spend a lot of time at home, and that usually means frequently hanging around the kitchen and backyard. We have made this a pleasure for many families in Oakton, providing high-quality granite and quartz countertops as well as backsplashes for both indoor and outdoor use.
We have also done other parts of the home in stone. We have updated a number of bathrooms in the area with new vanity tops, bathtub surrounds and bath decks in quartz or granite, essentially elevating the value and comfort of each home. We have also tackled projects involving fireplace surrounds, coffee tables, and tile flooring.
We have done a lot to promote gracious living in Oakton in the past from the inside out. We continue to do so today, as one Oakton homeowner describes.
I purchased my house in Oakton two years ago, but never managed to make the move from DC due to changing circumstances, I finally decided to sell it, and my realtor advised updating the kitchen countertops to sell better. The previous owner had put in concrete countertops, but did not take good care of it, and now looked sad. I decided to replace it with granite countertops.
I checked the companies offering granite and quartz countertop in the area and walked into the Silver Marble Granite showroom in Sterling. I found their helpfulness and knowledge of the staff impressive, and decided to contract with them for my new countertops. It helped that the quote was lower than others I got from other companies.
The project took one week. Since I was offsite, the company took the trouble to keep me updated on the progress, and I was very happy with the results.
I got an offer above asking on the first day of my open house, and I firmly believe the new countertops helped seal the deal. Thanks, Silver Marble Granite!
Kitchen Countertops Oakton
Most people agree that nice kitchen countertops set the tone of the house. It is often the first thing you see when you come in, especially as many homes today have open floor layouts. Even when the kitchen is not immediately visible, the kitchen countertops are the star of the show when you do go into the kitchen. You want to make sure your kitchen countertops will be eye candy, and the best way to do that is to have granite, marble, or quartz countertops.
Bathroom Vanity Tops Oakton
Bathroom vanity tops are just as important as kitchen countertops in creating the desired look of the bathroom. When you want to upgrade your boring bathroom and make it more awesome, the easiest thing is to put in a vanity (if you don’t have one) or replace an existing vanity top with granite or quartz. You can spend as little as $400 to make your bathroom look like a million bucks.
Granite Countertops Oakton
Granite is an igneous rock. This means it formed from slowly cooling magma over millions of years under great pressure and heat. It is also the most abundant type of rock in the world, which is why it has been popular as a building material for centuries. However, quarrying and processing granite was hard, so it was too expensive for most people to use in their homes.
That is no longer the case today. Advances in technology have made it much more affordable. You can actually get granite countertops from Silver Marble Granite for as little as $27 per square foot for a limited time.
Marble Countertops Oakton
Marble is a metamorphic rock. This means it was something else before turning into marble. In most cases, the original rock or protolith was limestone or dolomite, both of which are light-colored sedimentary rocks composed mostly of calcium carbonate.
Under high pressure and temperature, the structures of these protoliths break down and reform into marble. As such, marble is mostly white with some streaks or veins, and much denser and more durable than the original rock.
Using marble as kitchen and bathroom vanity tops is a good idea because it looks elegant. With the right amount of care and maintenance, it should last for a very long time.
Quartz Countertops Oakton
Some people insist that natural is always better, but quartz countertops is one exception. It is a manmade material designed to last a long time with little or no maintenance. It is the perfect alternative to natural stone for busy homeowners.
Quartz countertops are available in a wide range of colors and designs, including those that mimic the look of granite and marble. It is the best of both worlds.
