Many New Green Options at Construction Resources Slab Gallery

green oprtions available at slab galleryHomeowners, remodelers, and builders looking for the environmentally-friendly counter surfaces for their kitchen or baths now have to look no further than Atlanta’s own Construction Resources for a plethora of options. Construction Resources’ newly expanded indoor Slab Gallery is now Georgia’s largest at 20,000 square feet, and a big chunk of that expansion has been with green surfaces ready to make your home healthy, great-looking, and nature approved!

For quartz countertops, green buyers are set with Cambria. As the only domestically produced quartz surface, Cambria Quartz goes through extensive recovery and recycling of water used in the production process through state-of-the-art settling and filtering techniques. Much of this water gets recycled during the fabrication process. These practices overall contribute to significantly lessening the manufacturing process’ impact on the environment. Cambria has received multiple awards and recognitions, from GREENGARD to LEED to NSF International.

Vetrazzo recycled glass surfaces are another great option for the environmentally-conscious who don’t want to sacrifice the look of a high-end counter top. Vetrazzo makes these surfaces from normally non-recyclable glass like traffic lights, buildings and windshields in addition to consumer recycled glass. They then form these into 550 pound slab counter tops with lively colors and unique designs.

Construction Resources stocks these two and many other environmentally-conscious brands in their showroom among over 3,000 slabs and 2,000 remnants. Customers can select their slab, a fabrication design, as well as set up delivery and installation all in one place, and more quickly in this one stop shop.
