Frequently Asked Questions

Why doesn’t everyone have Granite?

Over the last 10 years we have installed over 5,000 kitchens. We have always maintained a huge commitment to customer service and “Service After The Sale” Other manufacturers in the last few years have learned that the only way to sell their product is to capitalize on these concepts with limited warranties and claims of superior quality. You may have heard of some companies that sell quartz products. First of all Granite is 98% quartz. These products are essentially granite crushed up and glued back together. They have limited warranties and claims of superior quality. Well thanks to our Brand New ECOstar Granite, ONLY AVAILABLE AT Adobe Walls Stoneworks, there is no need to re-seal or maintain your granite for any reason. Through a brand new proprietary method that has been developed after years of research, your new ECOstar granite is MAINTENANCE FREE, and comes with a full 15yr warranty!

Why Genuine Stone?

Granite offers beauty, easy care and durability. Granite is often found in upscale and sophisticated residences, palaces and hotels throughout the world due to its texture and luster. Natural stone provides the look and feel of elegance through a quality and strength that will never be reached by other materials.

Next to diamonds, granite is the strongest stone in the world. In fact, diamonds are used to cut granite. So, like diamonds, granite lasts forever!

In natural hard surfaces like granite, a certain amount of "movement" or grain is usually expected. Many people find this flow and blending of colors to be the most compelling reason for using genuine stone.

What is Granite?

Granite is an igneous rock created deep within the earth from magma, cooled slowly under great pressure. It is the hardest stone after the diamond, with very dense grain, making it virtually impervious to stain. It takes a highly polished finish, which will endure even in inclement environments. There is a broad spectrum of granite colors ranging from nearly pure white to nearly pure black. During its formation, granite may also have been infused with other minerals providing patterned movement as well as color.

Why granite? Should I consider other products?

Granite is a natural stone, while corian and silestones are man-made. Some silestone and corian salespeople discourage customers from getting granite claiming that the granite needs to be sealed frequently, and constantly maintained, and doesn’t come with a warranty. Well, congratulations! With our Brand New ECOstar Granite, ONLY AVAILABLE AT Adobe Walls Stoneworks, there is no need to re-seal or maintain your granite for any reason. Through a brand new proprietary method we have developed after years of research, your new ECOstar granite is MAINTENANCE FREE, and comes with a full 15yr warranty!

What is the optimum thickness for granite countertops?

An optimal thickness for kitchen granite countertops is 3 cm, or 1 ¼”. For a thicker appearance, an edge treatment, such as half bull nose, edging is recommended. This creates the illusion of even thicker granite without adding additional stress on your cabinets. We rarely recommend using 2cm granite. This is a common way to save a few bucks on your countertops. We realize the importance of saving money, so we offer 3cm for the same price as 2cm. We can’t recommend an inferior product just to save a few bucks so we just sell everything at 2cm prices!

What is the best edging and why?

The best edge treatment, which is also the most widely used, is ½ Bull Nose edging. In addition to having an aesthetic appeal, this edging is the safest around young children and is unlikely to chip.

Is the edging done by hand?

Adobe Walls Stoneworks utilizes robotic CNC technology. What is the big deal you ask? This high tech computer controlled equipment doesn’t make mistakes, and the quality of the edging and polishing is far better than any man polished product. All edging is performed by highly trained professionals under the supervision of the Adobe Walls Stoneworks staff.

How often do I need to seal granite?

Good quality granite does not need to be sealed more than once every three to five years. However, With our Brand New ECOstar Granite, ONLY AVAILABLE AT Adobe Walls Stoneworks, there is no need to re-seal or maintain your granite for any reason. Through a brand new proprietary method we have developed after years of research, your new ECOstargranite is MAINTENANCE FREE and comes with a full 15yr warranty.
