West Coast Marble & Granite's foundation lies on the idea that every living space should be beautiful. The company was founded in Southern California 1987, by Ashur Gorgis, a young man with aspiring dreams.

Q: Does West Coast Marble & Granite apply sealer on all natural stones?
A: Yes, after we install your natural stone, we will apply sealer.
Q: Does West Coast Marble & Granite provide sealer?
A: We sell sealer for after the first layer has worn off.
Q: How do I protect my marble/granite countertops?
A: Marble: To protect your marble countertop, it is recommended you avoid spilling anything on it because marble tends to absorb liquids fast. Sharp knives may scratch the surface, so a cutting board is key to preventing this. A guide on how to reapply sealer yourself will be useful as sealer helps avert liquids from seeping into the marble and prevents scratches.
A: Granite: To protect your granite countertop, you can again reapply sealer after our required application has worn off, however granite countertops are moisture-resistant by nature so liquids do not seep into the granite as fast. Due to this feature, most people are recommended to choose a granite countertop for their kitchen because it is an exceptionally hard stone and absorbs liquid less.
Q: Can I cut on my granite countertop?
A: Yes, granite is much harder than marble and can rank up to a 7 on Mohs hardness scale meaning the granite will not be scratched however your knife will become duller.
Q: Can my granite countertop become damaged?
A: Although granite is extremely durable and hard, this does not mean that intentional high impact blows with a sharp object will not create tiny chips. This is due to the crystalline structure of granite.
Q: What is the difference between Granite, Marble, and Quartz?
A: Granite and marble are natural stones whereas Quartz is a machine processed natural stone.
