What goes better with a new kitchen countertop than a designer tile backsplash to accent it? Whether you are undertaking a do-it-yourself kitchen remodeling project or have hired contractors, a tile backsplash is a simple task that can add a lot of character and charm to your kitchen. At Construction Resources, we want you to be able to do a complete kitchen makeover at a price you can afford; so, throughout the month of April, take 15% off your new tile backsplash with the purchase of a new countertop.
In order to get the discount, you must purchase 40 square feet or more of Artisan, Granite or Quartz countertops from Atlanta Kitchen. We recommend Cambria Quartz countertops because they are not that much more expensive than granite, but are twice as strong and will last far longer. Plus, the quartz countertops require no maintenance and are completely stain resistant. So, while you may be spending a little more up front, you will be saving money over time by avoiding maintenance costs. Read More→
Remember our recent blog post about Cambria Quartz countertops being named a “Best Buy in Countertops” by Consumer’s Digest? Well, we are pleased to announce that the Artisan Group Classics Granite also made the list. Where the Cambria Quartz countertops were chosen as the premium selection in the Stone & Solid-Surface category, the Artisan classics were recognized in the midrange selection with the best price being around $54 per square foot.
There are so many factor help make the Artisan Classics granite countertops stand out among the crowd, but the most significant attribute would probably be the fact that Artisan is the only brand of granite countertops that has a lifetime warranty that covers staining and craftsmanship, including installation. In addition, the Artisan Stone Collection has one of the widest varieties of colors and patterns than any other granite brand with 26 options in the Classics line. Read More→
Let’s give a big congratulations to Mitch Hires, co-owner of Construction Resources, Inc., as he was recently elected to the Artisan Group Board of Directors. It was less than a year ago when the Atlanta kitchen and bath company became a part of the elite Artisan Group and the exclusive supplier in Georgia of the exquisite Artisan Stone Collection. With his participation in the Artisan Group Board of Directors, Mitch will now be able to further represent the high integrity of the organization, and, hopefully, inspire other fabricators and suppliers to do the same. There’s no question that his involvement with the Board of Directors is going to greatly benefit the remodeling and home building industry in Atlanta.
Mitch is a perfect fit for the Artisan Group Board of Directors. Read More→

The March/April 2010 issue of Consumers Digest has a special section devoted to smart kitchen makeovers. Part of this feature includes a list of “Best Buys” in countertops. They covered every kind of countertop you can think of, from laminate to stone and everything in between. They also have the best buy for the premium selection, mid-range selection and economy selection for each category.
Coming in as the “Best Buy” premium selection for Stone & Solid-Surface Countertops is Cambria Quartz at $78 per square foot. When it comes to luxury countertops for the kitchen, hardly anything tops Cambria. Cambria quartz is a stain resistant, non porous surface that is harder, stronger and easier to care for than other stone surfaces because it does not require sealing with chemical-based conditioners, polishers or wax. As an added bonus, Cambria is certified by NSF International as safe for use as a food preparation surface. And the absolute icing on the cake – Cambria quartz countertops are eco-friendly!
