Granite countertops are, without a doubt, the most popular choice for homeowners who want to install new kitchen countertops. Granite has held that position for years, and while it has competition, buyers love its luxurious looks and natural composition. Like some countertop materials, no two granite slabs will look exactly alike, giving your kitchen a unique aura.
Granite is a great choice for families, especially if you have children, as it has a hard surface that can withstand chips and scratches. Pricing on granite can vary depending on where it's sourced and how large the slab is. But one thing is for sure - if you're in need of a reliable countertop material for day-to-day use, granite should be atop your list.
One of the biggest reasons granite countertops are so popular is because they can be quite affordable. That's especially important for families trying to stick to a kitchen remodeling budget. Prices of granite can vary, so be sure to speak with one of our expert associates at Stone City KB for the most accurate pricing.
Another popular reason to choose granite countertops over other materials is granite's resistance to scratches and chips. If you're like most folks, you'll be using your new countertops every day. Over time, counters can take a beating, especially when you have younger children. Fortunately, granite can withstand many scratches and chips, making it a popular choice for longevity and beauty. Remember, though - never use your granite countertops for dicing, cutting, or slicing. Use a cutting board instead, or you may damage your new countertops.
When sealed properly, your granite countertops in Goose Creek, SC can resist stains. In fact, if a spill dries on your counters, you should be able to scrape them off gently with a plastic scraping tool. That's not to say that granite can't be stained at all - acids and alkaline can do a number on granite, so avoid spilling those substances on your counters. With that said, if you seal your granite counters every year and clean up spills quickly with soap and water, you should be able to avoid most long-lasting stains. At Stone City KB, we are trained and certified for a permanent sealer with additional cost, that is warranty for 15 years. Don't forget to ask your sales representative for this permanent 15 years sealer as an option so you can be worry free.
Like stains, granite countertops are also resistant to heat. Granite is formed in nature with heat and pressure, so it makes sense that it would have inherent heat-resistant properties. This is great news if you use your oven or toaster oven to cook dinner. If you accidentally place a hot pan on your granite counters, you don't have to worry. While we recommend placing oven-hot pans on potholders, you should be safe to use your granite counters too.
Granite has many practical benefits over countertop materials, but it also has an aesthetic advantage. At Stone City Kitchen & Bath, all our granite slabs are unique. If your neighbors have new granite countertops installed, you can rest easy knowing their granite won't be exactly like yours. If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind, cost-conscious option for your kitchen countertops, granite is a fantastic choice.
Marble is a timeless material that exudes luxury. It has dynamic, detailed hues and is a very popular choice for homeowners in need of a high-end feel for their kitchen. Unlike granite counters, marble needs regular upkeep to maintain its beauty and durability.
Like granite, quartz are engineering countertops are durable and don't require too much maintenance. It is non-porous and doesn't need to be sealed, so scratches and stains are minimal. However, unlike granite, you should avoid placing hot items on quartz countertops or you could risk damaging them. If you like marble with white and gray vein movements, quartz countertops is your best choice.
No kitchen remodeling project would be complete without installing new cabinets. At Stone City Kitchen & Bath, our experienced craftsmen have created and installed hundreds of new cabinets. We know that deciding on your new kitchen cabinets' material, finish, and style can be hard. That's why we're here to help every step of the way!

We'll consider your current kitchen layout, your color preferences, and more to provide personalized options for your project. And when it's time to install your new cabinets, you can rest assured we'll get the job done right at a price you can afford.
When it comes to kitchen remodeling in Goose Creek, SC installing new kitchen cabinets is a great idea. If you're already upgrading or replacing your kitchen countertops, having new cabinets that match the aesthetics of your kitchen makeover is a no-brainer.
At Stone City KB, we believe that everyone deserves an elegant, versatile kitchen with stunning cabinetry. That's why our team will work closely with you to discover the material, texture, and style of cabinets you're craving. Once we do, we handle all the heavy lifting, including cabinet design and installation in your home.
So, why should you install new kitchen cabinets alongside your countertops? Here are just a few reasons:
Many customers install new kitchen cabinets because they're already remodeling their kitchen and need their cabinets to match the aesthetics of their updated space. Do you want your kitchen to feel more open and airier? Do you have specific lifestyle requirements that necessitate a particular cabinet material? Our kitchen cabinet experts can help you find the perfect cabinet setup for your needs.
Having a uniform aesthetic throughout your kitchen and home is important. But from a practical standpoint, new kitchen cabinets often mean more kitchen storage. That's a big deal for families, especially when younger children are involved. If you find that your countertops are magnets for clutter, new cabinetry can help remove the mess and stress less. The more storage your kitchen has, the easier it will be to use your kitchen for cooking and entertaining.
Take a few moments and check out the bones of your current cabinets. Low-quality, cheap cabinets are often a turnoff for potential buyers. If you plan on selling your home in the next few years, one of the best ways to boost resale value is with new cabinetry.
Is it a pain in the side to cook in your kitchen? Whether it's due to clutter, design, or something else, many of our customers want new cabinets so that their kitchen is functional again. New cabinets give you more storage, as mentioned above, but they can also make your kitchen more functional, depending on design and remodeling preferences. If you love to cook for your family and get-togethers, investing in new kitchen cabinets can help you do more of what you love.
Whether you're looking to "wow" a new client or work colleague or just want to make your neighbors a little jealous, upgrading your kitchen cabinets is a great way to do so. Of course, first impressions have always mattered, but particularly so in real estate. When the time comes to sell your home, having custom cabinets and countertops in your kitchen can set you apart from other sellers.
Here at Stone City Kitchen & Bath, we specialize in custom kitchen countertops and cabinets designed especially for you. Whether you've been dreaming of traditional wood cabinets or need sleek, elegant granite countertops, we've got you covered.

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC (BHGRE) announced on Thursday its affiliation with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Palmetto, which has offices in Charleston and Goose Creek, South Carolina.
Established in 2021 by Aimee and Terry Peterson, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Palmetto currently operates in the greater Charleston area, including Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester County.
“Our affiliated agents’ feedback is paramount to us and after surveying them, the overwhelming need became clear: better brand recognition,” Aimee Peterson said. “I am excited to affiliate with a brand that I grew up with and a name agents can stand out with.”
The firm has seen rapid growth recently, increasing from seven to 60 agents in less than two years, according to the statement. In addition, a number of agents in the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Palmetto team received the 2022 REALTORS of Distinction award from the Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS.
“Over the past two years, our company has grown exponentially, and so have our needs, notably the need for brand recognition and consolidated tools and resources,” Terry Peterson said in a prepared statement. “As a Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate franchise, we now have access to the brand’s strong name to help legitimize our company in the market even further…”
With this affiliation, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Palmetto will be able to integrate with the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate lifestyle programs, professional development and learning resources, and affiliated network, according to a press release.

BHG, a subsidiary of Anywhere Real Estate Inc., has a network of almost 12,600 independent sales associates and about 420 offices in the U.S., Canada, Jamaica, The Bahamas, Australia and Turkey.

Boeing Co. wants build a new parking space for the 787 jets it builds at its North Charleston assembly campus.
The aerospace giant this month outlined plans in a regulatory filing for a 10th stall where Dreamliners can be parked after they’ve gone through the production process.
The extra parking space would be on the southern side of the flight line that stretches along South Aviation Avenue. It would require a minor realignment to a road within Boeing’s campus.
The planemaker filed an application for a stormwater permit with the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control. That document notes that construction will take place on 9.1 acres and will not affect any wetlands.
The regulatory agency is taking public comments on the project through Feb. 27 and it isn’t clear when a permit might be issued. The project is still in the design stages, the company said.
The additional space is needed as Boeing continues to clear finished Dreamliner jets that had been placed in inventory for 15 months after minor production flaws were discovered. The company is working with the Federal Aviation Administration to ensure those planes are ready for delivery to customers.
Boeing, which consolidated all Dreamliner production to the Lowcountry plant in 2021, also plans to boost the number of wide-body jets it builds in North Charleston later this year.
Rework on the inventoried 787s is taking up half of the assembly line space at the South Carolina campus, one of the factors limiting the company to building one or two new Dreamliners per month.
A Boeing executive said during a Jan. 25 conference call with analysts that production should hit five per month by the end of the year.
“Boeing South Carolina is the home of the 787 program, and as the program and our business needs grow and change over time, we will plan for and make adjustments to our site accordingly,” the company said in a written statement.
Boeing grew its South Carolina workforce by 17.1 percent last year, to 6,465 workers, as it prepares for growth fueled by new orders from airlines trying to keep pace with an increase in international travel. The hiring brought local employment totals closer to pre-pandemic levels, with engineering and production staff added to further stabilize operations, increase output and invest in new products.
In December, United Airlines said it will buy up to 200 Dreamliners in the largest deal for wide-body planes in U.S. aviation history. Earlier this month, Air India announced an order for 20 787-9s as part of a historic commercial plane deal for up to 540 jets split between Boeing and rival manufacturer Airbus.
Boeing Co. has paused deliveries of the 787 jets it builds in North Charleston following an error in certification records provided by a supplier.The wide-body planes are still being built at the assembly campus off International Boulevard, but no Dreamliners will be handed off to customers until the issue is resolved.“In reviewing certification records, Boeing discovered an analysis error by our supplier related to the 787 forward pressure bulkhead,” the company said in a written statement.The planemaker sai...
Boeing Co. has paused deliveries of the 787 jets it builds in North Charleston following an error in certification records provided by a supplier.
The wide-body planes are still being built at the assembly campus off International Boulevard, but no Dreamliners will be handed off to customers until the issue is resolved.
“In reviewing certification records, Boeing discovered an analysis error by our supplier related to the 787 forward pressure bulkhead,” the company said in a written statement.
The planemaker said it also notified safety regulators at the Federal Aviation Administration and “paused 787 deliveries while we complete the required analysis and documentation.”
The FAA said in a statement that deliveries will not resume until the agency “is satisfied that the issue has been addressed,” adding that it “is working with Boeing to determine any actions that might be required for recently delivered airplanes.”
The documentation issue, which Boeing said it discovered within the past week, is not a flight concern for Dreamliners that are already in service, the company said.
“We are communicating with our customers and will continue to follow the lead of the FAA,” Boeing said. “While near-term deliveries will be impacted, at this time we do not anticipate a change to our production and delivery outlook for the year.”
Reuters reported that Spirit AeroSystems supplies the forward pressure bulkhead for 787s but that company isn’t certain it’s at fault for the documentation problem.
“Based on the information we currently have and our interactions with Boeing to date, we believe it is too early to assert there was an ‘analysis error’ by Spirit,” the company told the news service.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Boeing hasn’t delivered a Dreamliner since Jan. 26 from the production line or from dozens that are being stored while the documentation issue is resolved.
The latest issue is not related to fixes Boeing is making to about 100 Dreamliners that were put into inventory after minor production flaws were discovered and deliveries halted in May 2021. Deliveries of the 787 resumed last August, but the repairs are time-consuming and the FAA must sign off on each plane before it is turned over to a customer.
Boeing currently builds about one Dreamliner a month while the joint verification work is being done. The company has said it hopes to boost production to as many as five a month in North Charleston by the end of this year.
The company has handed off 34 Dreamliners since deliveries resumed in August, including three in January. It has 516 orders in its 787 backlog.

A brand-new park opened in Goose Creek on Friday with the focus of being “a park built for everyone.”
GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - A brand-new park opened in Goose Creek on Friday with the focus of being “a park built for everyone.”
The $9 million project, Central Creek Park, hopes to be inclusive towards everyone with volleyball and basketball courts, a splash pad, a food truck pavilion and pickleball courts.
Over 26,000 square-feet, ‘Debra’s Playground’ will offer a wide range of accessible activities for people with physical or visual disabilities. The surfacing is all wheelchair accessible, and the equipment is based on sensory items for everyone to enjoy.
Families who include children with disabilities were the first invited to play at the park after this morning’s ribbon cutting. Nicole Valentine, mother to her special needs daughter, says other parks have never really been concerned about including all the different aspects of sensory play before.
“It’s never really kept in mind the heart of all children to be fully inclusive, and even down to having the fence around for those kids who love to run,” Valentine says. “It’s very important and it does so much for parent’s safety concerns to be able to just come here, and you almost get a little bit of relief watching your children play and not be so stressed out.”
The City of Goose Creek hosted a tribute to the donors of the park ahead of the ribbon cutting ceremony. Goose Creek Recreation Director Crystal Reed addressed the city and sponsors after working for months on the development.
“Central Creek Park sets our community apart and creates opportunities to remove barriers, increase self-esteem, develop community culture where everyone benefits from health, fitness and social connections,” Crystal says. “Thousands of children and adults across Berkeley County of all abilities have benefited from our therapeutic recreation program over the past several years; because of you, we just raised the bar with Central Creek Park.”
Parents of children with special needs say that it means the world to them to see their children experience a park they can truly enjoy. Kathy Kackley, parent to Trista Kutceher, travel the U.S. together promoting inclusivity in parks and compared other parks to Central Creek Park.
“There’s something here for everyone; there’s something here everyone can do,” Kackley says. “We like to be inclusive in our play and in our life, and we are very appreciative that Goose Creek has stepped up and has a place for everybody to play together.”
Goose Creek Assistant Recreation Director, Nicole Herrera Murray, explains how the city worked to choose specific pieces of equipment for special needs children to use. After planning and researching for months, she says Friday was a dream come true.
“I’ve been dreaming of this day for a really long time. It’s really amazing to see everyone enjoying and hearing the screams behind us is just everything that I’ve ever wanted,” Murray says.
The public is invited to join in on the fun Friday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. or Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 47 Old Moncks Corner Rd.
