Granite and marble are available in a huge variety of unique natural colors. Its beauty comes from the endless combinations of veining, coloring, and grain that are impossible to imitate in a man-made product. The durability of granite is also superior to any manufactured product. Its heat and scratch resistance is far better than any other solid surface material such as Corian. This makes granite a suitable and cost effective choice for projects that need to look good under heavy usage. It will maintain its "like new" appearance with a minimum of maintenance.
Stone Company is Northern Illinois'
most experienced granite fabricator.
Equipped with the best equipment,
our craftsmen produce granite of the highest quality. Producing
granite and marble for large commercial jobs as well as small
residential projects, we pay attention to the details other fabricators
- Smooth, straight edges Our automated equipment enables us to produce an edge that is perfectly smooth, without the wavy, rippled look common with edges produced with hand held equipment.
- Consistent high shine on tops Many smaller shops don't have the machinery necessary to re-polish the granite tops. We routinely re-polish the factory finish on our slabs to get the highest possible shine.
- Color and grain matching We take the time necessary to lay out our slab cuts to produce the most pleasing look possible for the finished job. While the "movement" of colors within some granites may produce a more noticeable joint, we strive to get a consistent matched appearance in the finished tops.
- Smooth joints In order to make the joints as smooth and unnoticeable as possible, we take the extra time to slightly bevel and polish the top edges of the joint. This removes the lighter color ragged edge that is seen when the edges are just left sawn.
- Precisely fit From measuring and drafting, to fabrication and installation, Benson's staff has the expertise to make sure the project flows smoothly, and that the final materials fit and fit properly.
