No two slabs are the same. With each unique slab comes a different natural appearance. Natural stone countertops are long-lasting and durable while increasing the value of your home.


At Bad Lizard, we provide stones for you to choose from:

  • Granite: Known for its robustness and variety of colors and textures. It’s a versatile choice that works wonders in kitchens. 
  • Quartz: An engineered stone. Its small crystals bound with resin reinforce the resilience of the material. 
  • Marble: An igneous stone with a wide variety of colors and hues that brings an elegant look to your kitchen or bathroom. 
  • Soapstone: Made from quarried stone with a high talc content. 


We also offer the option of remnants. Remnants are considered to be leftover stone materials comprised of a specific bundle that isn’t large enough for a full-size kitchen project. Also, they’re an inexpensive alternative that adds value to bathrooms and fireplaces.


We understand that choosing between different countertop materials can be an overwhelming process. At Bad Lizard, we want you to feel comfortable with your countertop decision-making. It’s our job to instill confidence in your next project.
