The village of Mount Prospect is close enough to Chicago and O’Hare International Airport to be an important place for many people, but far enough to be an affordable place to have a bit of a backyard. It might be better to look to nearby Elk Grove Village for a reliable Granite and Quartz Company rather than Chicago, however. Precision Design Stone specializes in high quality countertops for the home, as illustrated in this case study.
Kitchen Countertops Mount Prospect
Kitchen countertops have to cater to the needs of the users. In Mount Prospect, that typically means standing up to young people, who are not particularly careful. Kitchen countertops made of granite or quartz is ideal for this type of home because they are quite tough.
Bathroom Vanity Tops Mount Prospect
Bathroom vanity tops in Mount Prospect are quite as functional as kitchen countertops, and merit the same type of investment on a smaller scale. Vanities are typically smaller with more cutouts, but they also need to be durable. Granite and quartz are good options for bathroom vanity tops, and so is marble.
Granite Countertops Mount Prospect
Granite countertops Mount Prospect work great for any kitchen, but especially for homes with children. They are durable, food safe, and beautiful, so they add considerable value to the home. They are available in a wide range of colors, designs, textures, and edge treatments, so selecting the right one for any kitchen is a certainty.
Marble Countertops Mount Prospect
Marble countertops Mount Prospect have a more limited range in terms of functionality compared to quartz and granite countertops. The fact that they are porous and sensitive to acids makes it problematic for kitchen countertops. However, they are a fantastic option for bathroom vanity tops because of their elegance.
Quartz Countertops Mount Prospect
For indoor use, quartz countertops Mount Prospect are a great choice. They are nonporous, so they will not stain. They are at least 90% quartz, so they are very durable. However, they are not as heat resistant as granite, so it is advisable to use heat pads and trivets to protect the surface from hot pans and pots.
About Mount Prospect
The village of Mount Prospect is in Cook County, Illinois, just 20 miles to downtown Chicago in the northwest. The best feature of Mount Prospect is its schools, some of which have won awards in the state. The area is an attractive one for homeowners with school-aged children that work out Chicago. In fact, about one-third of homes in the village have children under the age of 18. The village motto is “Where friendliness is a way of life.” Mount Prospect enjoys warm summers and cold winters, where a backyard is an obvious advantage.
What we did in Mount Prospect
The village of Mount Prospect is a relatively affluent community. Many single-family houses have extensive front lawns and backyards, making it easy to hold outdoor activities, especially during the summer. A client thought to take full advantage of that by building an outdoor kitchen with a grill and smoker.
The client wanted us to provide quartz countertops for it, but we explained that this was not a good idea. The colors of engineered quartz stones tend to fade under direct sunlight, so outdoor use would void the manufacturer’s warranty. We recommended granite countertops instead, and the client agreed. “I am so glad that I found Precision to do the work. I might have made a huge mistake choosing quartz countertops for my outdoor kitchen. They obviously know what they are doing, and I couldn’t be happier with the result.”
