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.

  • Capitol Granite has done work for us 3 times now!

    “Capitol Granite has done work for us 3 times now. Each experience has been extremely positive including the staff during ordering, laser measurement, and installation! The work has been consistently high quality and their pricing is always extremely competitive! The selection of slabs and the variety of stock to pick from is unparalleled! The latest experience was incredibly fast which was only 7 calendar days from selection to installation! Unbelievable! If you have any counter needs regardless of room....give them a try! You won’t regret it!”
