Here’s something really exciting. You have a choice of mind-blowing finishes for any countertops fabricated by Jubilee. Each selection of finish offers different properties and not only reflects light in differently, but also own your individual personality. Are you glossy? Matte? Vintage? Three of our most popular finishes include polished, brushed (also called “leathered”) and honed (also called textured).
Unique expression of your personality
Mirror-like polished finish one of our granite slabs.
A polished finish on the stone has a glossy surface that reflects light and emphasizes the color and marking of the material. This type of finish is used on walls, furniture tops and other items, as well as floor tiles. Jubilee Company can help you choose the exact finish to meet your needs.
Brushed, Textured or Leathered Finish
This exciting set of closely related finishes brings on a matte finish with unique texture in natural stone and results in an uneven “water worn” look that may remind you of tooled leather. This finish masks fingerprints well.
A honed finish is a satin smooth “vintage” surface with relatively little light reflection. Generally, a honed finish is preferred for floors, stair treads, work tables, thresholds and other locations where heavy traffic will wear off the polished finish. A honed finish may also be used on furniture tops and other surfaces.
A flamed finish is a rough textured surface used frequently on granite floor tiles. High heat is used to alter surface crystals to create a faded look.

Granite’s crazy extremes of color and pattern, plus its exceptional hardness are the reason “granite” is virtually synonymous with natural stone countertops. Features include,
- Hardness rated at “7” where diamond is a “10”
- Resists heat
- Resists scratches
- Resists stains
- Resists mold and mildew
- Complements any architecture and interior color palette
- Adds enduring value of your home
Installing a new kitchen countertop is one of the most dramatic ways to express your unique sense of style.
Granite is so durable that the right countertop is very likely to be the last countertop you’ll ever need. Granite resists many of the problems common to other forms of natural stone including wear, cracks, scratches and chipping.
When you build with natural stone you are bringing something into your home that is millions and even billions of years old. People feel more grounded in a home built with natural stone because of it’s connection to mother earth.
