Product Overview

There are many reasons TREND Transformation’s Granite Countertops are so popular. They are sealed with our uniquely designed ForeverSeal®, a polymer resin that ensures our countertops are nonporous, stain- and scratch-resistant and, unlike ordinary granite, will never require sealing.

  • Quality

    At TREND Transformations, quality is priority number one.  With superior engineering and made from the highest quality granite in the world, it is no wonder that our Granite surfaces are among the most popular in the industry.

  • Style

    When it comes to Granite, the beauty truly is in the details. Flecking, color variations, swirls. And these surfaces can be used in any room in the house, including your kitchen, bathroom or even around your living room fireplace.

  • Design

    So many gorgeous choices! Granite combines the perfect balance of beauty and practicality.
