Our Materials

Trio uses a variety of materials including quartz, granite, marble, quartzite, porcelain, limestone, sinter and soapstone. We can provide a list of the suppliers we work with to provide a variety of materials to choose from for each space. Once the material is selected, our team double-checks the material, creates the internal layout, and aligns the natural patterns before using advanced techniques to cut the material. We work with our customers to ensure a seamless process from manufacturing to installation to deliver a beautiful and timeless final product. Our team prides itself on our knowledge of the materials we use.







Quartz is an engineered stone surface. Made up of ground Quartz fragments bonded together with resin and pigments.

Quartz will be more resistant to scratches, chips and cracks in comparison to other surfaces. 

 Quartz is a non-porous material requiring less maintenance in comparison to natural stones, granites and marbles.Quartz is “stain resistant”, making for easier clean-ups and care. 


Quartz is Eco-Friendly 


Quartzite is a beautiful, natural, and porous material that is formed beneath the earth's surfaces through heat and pressure. 

Quartzite is a slightly harder material in comparison to quartz making is slightly more resistant to scratches.

Being a porous material, the application of a natural sealer is required with installation of the material to assist in avoiding permanent stains. 

The material is susceptible to staining and bacterial invasions if proper maintenance of annual sealing is not performed throughout the life of the material. 

Quartzite has a high heat tolerance and is able to withstand the heat from pots and pans directly sitting on the material.

Quartzite is not a DIY friendly material, and we recommend any installations calling for this material being done by the Trio team. 


Granite is a natural stone that comes from deep within the earth’s core. With natural veining, Granite slabs are able to provide and one of a kind design unique to itself. Granite is visually appealing and can add value to any home.

Granite it not unbreakable, but it is an extremely “hard” substance making it highly resistant to scratches. 

The properties of granite make it a practical material for kitchen countertops near cooking areas. 

Porous and requires annual sealing.
Prone to “chipping”, or “cracking”

Comes with more seams.


Marble is another natural stone cut from large blocks. As a natural stone each slab is unique to itself. One of the most elegant materials, its white coloring makes for a clean and classic look. 

There is no substitute for the beauty of marble

Marble remains naturally cool, allowing for some heat resistant properties.

Marble will add value. With regular upkeep, maintenance and sealing the material is able to last a long time. 

Marble is very porous and can be stained permanently. Marble requires constant cleaning.

Sealing must be performed at install, and again annually every 6-12 months. 

Susceptible to “wear and tear” more so than other materials. Marble is not the hardest material.  


Dekton is an ultra-compact surface. Fabricated using extreme high heats and pressure creates a nearly indestructible and incredibly easy to maintain surface.


Highly durable
Heat Proof
Large sized slabs
Perfect for indoor and outdoor applications

Limited number of fabricators and installers, Trio is happy to be at the forefront of Dekton applications. 

Dekton comes in a number of different thicknesses. This allows for a more cost effective fabrication process in comparison to porcelain, as mitered edges can be avoided with 2cm and 3cm slabs. 


Powered stone and white china clay are heated at extreme temperatures to create porcelain surfaces. 


Heat endurance
Hardness and Durability
Color patterns and options
Lightweight material
Wide variety of applications
Environmentally friendly
Limited edge options
