Surfaces fortifies counter space with one of the largest selections of natural stone in Oklahoma, available in a variety of brands, colors, and patterns. Marble ($42+/sq.ft.) encases countertops and vanities with a classic sheen, providing a smooth, cool surface for rolling dough or feet-slapping activities, and quartz tops ($55+/sq.ft.) offer consistent color, durability, and no sealing.
