Whether for the bathrooms, kitchen, or another location in your home, we carry quality countertops in a wide range of styles and finishes. Our countertops in Richmond, VA provide many types of materials that can be used for countertops, with granite, marble, quartz, and solid surface (Corian type products) being the most common. Ultra-Compact surfacing is beginning to come to the market as a going forward waterproof, UV and chemical proof countertop material.

Types of countertops in Richmond, VA We Offer:

  • Natural Stone in the form of granite, marble or quartzite are all highly durable building materials, but all require some maintenance to retain their original beauty over the course of time. Their relatives, such as travertine, limestone, and onyx, generally are not recommended as countertop material without the consumer knowing exactly the “do’s and don’ts”. Ask us, we are professionals.

  • Quartz is a man-made product consisting of mostly of clear quartz, a natural stone, and represent half of the countertops currently made. They contain pigments and polymers to give it a non-absorbent surface, with colors and patterns that are ‘uniformly random’
  • Solid Surface is coming back (by the names of Corian, Hi-Macs, Staron), especially in food service applications where bowls and seams are fused (integrated), and in commercial work where design includes bending of the material. This non-porous surface is easy to clean and is extremely resistant to anything except significant heat. It comes in a selection of patterns and colors and can be crafted with the sink molded in.
  • Wood/butcher block brings a certain unique atmosphere to any room and can be particularly useful in the kitchen. Many people install durable butcher block countertops to give them surface room for cooking and prepping.

  • They were a pleasure to work with and everything went smoothly.

    “My husband and I just replaced our countertops with Capital Granite. They were a pleasure to work with and everything went smoothly. Serena was very helpful and went out of her way to assist us. We are very pleased with our purchase and would refer them to anyone looking for granite.”

  • They cleaned up their mess and did a very nice job. I would highly recommend Capitol’s work.

    “Fabulous job. I have to confess to being a bit concerned when I saw three young show up to the job site, however they very good and very fast. They were polite and asked if I had any questions. They cleaned up their mess and did a very nice job. I would highly recommend Capitol’s work. We have used them before and been just as pleased. Thank you”

  • No pressure environment and would do business with them again!

    “No pressure environment and would do business with them again. I dealt with polite and competent people through all three phases of the process; selection, site visit for measuring, and installation.”

  • 15/10 would highly recommend giving them a try!

    “We had such an amazing experience with Capitol Granite! I was clueless about countertop options. Serena helped guide me along and gave me very helpful tips and advice to help us choose our final option. We were kind of in a time crunch and needed our countertops done quickly. Unfortunately we did not end up choosing the quartz that had the quick turn around, but Serena was able to get our countertops expedited for us! We also chose a type of granite that they were currently out of stock and they took us to the company that they buy their granite from and let us pick which lot we wanted to use! I cannot say enough good things about this company! They went above and beyond for us! I am so thankful that we used them! 15/10 would highly recommend giving them a try!”
