Environmentally Friendly Countertops

Although we are a long-time supplier of high-quality granite countertops, we also carry a wide assortment of countertops made from other materials. Many environmentally conscious homeowners now look for eco-friendly countertop materials to install in their homes and business establishments. Below is a brief description of a variety of countertop brands with low environmental impact that we carry.

Eco by Cosentino

Made up of 75 percent post-consumer or post-industrial materials, this surface needs no sealant and is incredibly low-maintenance. This makes it a good fit for a busy and dedicated environmentalist. However, this manufacturer’s range of colors is highly limited. Eco comes mostly in neutral shades of grays and blacks. If you want a more colorful eco-friendly countertop material, this is not your best option.

Bamboo from Teragren

The natural hues of this material can be mesmerizing. A highly renewable resource, bamboo is a prized material for eco-conscious homeowners. It is, however, highly susceptible to stains. Its surface is also more easily marred than other environmentally-friendly countertop materials.

PaperStone from PaperStone Products

This countertop surface is made from 100 percent post-consumer paper that has been industrially fused with petroleum-free resin. Its characteristics resemble wood more than stone, making it much easier to work with and install. Exposing this material to bleach will mar its surface and leave ghost-like streaks.

Squak Mountain Stone from Tiger Mountain Innovations

These slabs are hand-cast and made from recycled paper and glass using low-carbon cement as a bonding element. It has a stone-like appearance, making it an attractive option for homeowners who find the appeal of natural stone countertops irresistible. However, it is prone to gouges and easy to chip and break.

Bio-Glass from Coverings, Etc.

This material is made from 100 percent recycled glass. Bio-glass comes in a limited range of shades depending on the original source material. Flat glass, beer, wine and water bottles produce varying shades of Bio-glass. It is incredibly resilient and stain-resistant, although at $100 per square foot (not including installation charges), this material is not likely within the budget range of a typical eco-friendly homeowner.

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
