Does Granite Transformations use recycled materials?
Yes, in fact Trend Glass countertops are manufactured using 33 to 72 percent recycled content, making it one of the industry leaders for its amount of recycled materials. In addition, Granite Transformations’ entire manufacturing process is designed to recycle materials whenever possible.
How does Granite Transformations unique resurfacing process cut down on waste?
Granite Transformations countertops are engineered to fit right over existing countertops. That means there is no need to remove the old counters, greatly reducing the amount of landfill waste created by a traditional kitchen remodel. Additionally, there is no need for any further construction to support the new countertop. This means a further savings in the amount of raw materials and the energy needed to manufacture them.
How does the Granite Transformations manufacturing process differ from that of other company’s engineered surfaces?
Because of the unique engineering process used to make Granite Transformations slabs, they are one third as thick (as compared to a ¾ inch slab) requiring at least 65 percent less material toproduce. Less material means less energy consumption in manufacturing and less use of the resources required for the final product. All this is accomplished while providing superior heat, stain and scratch resistance, when compared to natural stone.
What about after Granite Transformations countertops have been installed in the home?
Traditional granite counters require periodic sealing with harsh chemicals that release vapors into the home and the environment. Granite Transformations countertops require zero maintenance other than cleaning with water and a mild detergent and there is no need to ever use a chemical sealer, as required by other surfaces.
Where does Granite Transformations manufacture the materials used in their countertops?
Unlike many other engineered surfaces, all of Granite Transformations’ slabs are made right here in the United States. That greatly reduces the amount of resources that other manufacturers must use in the international shipping of their products.
