About Granite & Granite Countertops:
Granite offers a natural beauty for your home and is one of the hardest stones next to diamonds. We stock over 30 unique styles of granite slabs right here on our property. Visit our showroom to get an exact idea for your next project. If you don’t see what you are looking for, we are more than happy to call in an order for what you need. We receive weekly deliveries right to our shop.
The majority of our granite comes from our local suppliers in Chicago and St. Louis, shipped directly to our showroom. This allows us to give you the lowest possible price. We also will import granite and quartz for larger commercial projects. All granite is cut to specific sizes and pre-edged, which lowers costs and give the customer an easy 2-day turn around.
Heartland Granite & Quartz Countertops is an accredited applicator of Dry-Treat sealer.
For a limited time only, we are offering Dry-Treat free of charge on any installation!
Dry-Treat began in 1991 as a premium developer of specialist concrete sealers for the civil engineering industry, to protect large concrete structures such as bridges, high rises and factory floors in harsh conditions, including seawater and alkaline soil. Over nearly 2 decades Dry-Treat’s team of engineers and chemical scientists have continued to develop unique sealers to provide premium protection for a wide range of porous materials, including natural stone, tiles, brick and paving.
The Dry-Treat Difference
Dry-Treat’s impregnating sealers are technologically different from commonly available silicone, teflon and siloxane impregnators. Our specially engineered molecules penetrate deeper into porous materials and bond permanently inside the pores, without blocking them. This creates a deep barrier of protection within the tiles, paving, natural stone etc, which not only protects against staining, but against other serious damage, such as salt efflorescence. Dry-Treat impregnating sealers stand up to cleaning chemicals, traffic, sunlight, and even commercial cleaning techniques such as high pressure hosing. We back our technology with written performance warranties of up to 20 years, when the sealers are applied by Heartland Granite & Quartz Countertops, a Dry-Treat Accredited Applicator.
Scratching polished granite is nearly impossible. Essentially it will take a diamond or another piece of granite to harm the surface of your countertop.
Visit any cemetery and you will see that polished granite is extremely durable and stain resistant. Manufactured products representatives will try to create a vision of a beautiful countertop gone bad by a stain, however we do not anticipate any stains penetrating our surfaces. In the event a stain occurs it can be removed by using a poultice or “past draw out” of the stone. Granite needs to be sealed to prevent it from staining. Sealing your countertops is as easy as taking your car for an oil change and can be complete in a matter of minutes. Spray on, wait 20 minuets and wipe off.
Heat & Bacteria Resistance
Granite is heat resistant for your everyday kitchen needs. Placing hot pots or bake-ware on your granite countertop will not burn or damage them. Granite will not harbor bacteria any more than a laminate surface. Please use an anti-bacterial soap to wash your granite if you are concerned.
Heartland Granite & Quartz Countertops is very proud to have the knowledge and tools to fabricate your custom granite countertops. Because we are a local business we can reduce your lead-time, overall costs and pass the savings onto you. This will allow customers to be 100% positive that the color and veining of their granite is exactly what they have ordered.
