Bridgewater Marble & Granite has the largest indoor inventory out of all New Jersey fabricators. We also have nine local New Jersey suppliers from whom we can source practically any material that we do not currently have in stock.
We are best known for our exceptional selection of first quality natural stone slabs paired with over 15 years of quality service. Each variety of stone has its own unique color, pattern and texture. In addition, stone varies in hardness, strength, porosity, weight and other measurable characteristics. Selection of stone is a multi stop process, which varies according to application and personal taste. For example, granite is most often preferred for kitchen countertops because of its durability, hardness, and resistance to bacteria and heat. Marble is loved for its classic beauty and though it is also used in kitchens, it is softer, porous, and more susceptible to staining and etching than granite.
Limestone and travertine are similar to marble in their softness and porosity and are therefore most frequently being used for bathroom vanities, tubs, showers and fireplace surrounds. Onyx is a semi-precious stone that is beautiful to look at but impractical for most kitchen and bath applications due to its delicacy. Onyx is frequently decorative and most often backlit and used as wall coverings, dry bars and fireplace surrounds. Soapstone is another classically beautiful stone that comes from Brazil and Vermont. While traditionally rustic, soapstone is extremely soft and will age with your kitchen showing etching. When treated with mineral oil, these etches seemingly disappear and the depth and veining of the soapstone are brought out. Pietra de Cardosa is similar to Soapstone in appearance though more resistant to etching and abrasions.
Our inventory is frequently changing so it is best to stop in and view the slabs in person.
