Buford never had the “sleepy little village” aura, which characterized most small towns of the 19th century and early 20th century. The town was early blessed with able, far-sighted citizens, interested in business and education as was evidenced by its rapid growth and early attention to schools. Buford was early called the “city of many factories.” A news article in the News-Herald of December 18, 1902 referred to Buford as the “New York of Gwinnett” in paying tribute to its industry and activity.
For more than 60 years Buford was the largest city in Gwinnett County and during most of that time it had the only significant industrial development in the county. Buford had the first bank in the county. In fact, Buford had two flourishing banks before any other permanent banking facilities were established in the county.
For most of its history Buford’s schools were widely recognized for quality education. For several decades, students came from other areas of the county and from adjoining counties to acquire the prestigious diploma from Buford High School.

Quartz Countertops – A High Level of Durability
When you see these beautiful products, you may think you are looking at a slab of quartz. In reality, producers use a manufacturing process developed in Italy in the 1960s. The technique mixes particles of quartz, marble and granite with a hard polymer resin.
Whether you know or not, you may have had several encounters with the quartz material used for these countertops. The material is so durable that many builders use it as a flooring material in larger, indoor spaces. In shopping malls and office building entryways, owners love that this man-made material can withstand the scuff marks of shoes and shopping carts while giving their space a sophisticated look.
With this kind of strength, imagine how it will perform as a countertop. Surfaces made from this material are chip and scratch-resistant. While we do not recommend putting them to the test, you will not have to worry about the occasionally dropped pan.

The production technique for the quartz material has stayed pretty well the same over the years. But, manufacturers have grown in their ability to produce unique patterns and colors in the product. Our Churchill Honed Quartz has a slate-gray color with veins of white. It blends in well with a dark color scheme. Carrara Visconti Quartz has a bright, white marble look with subtle flecks and veins of gray and adds the perfect touch for a classical sense of style.
Local Buford Granite Countertops
Granite is an igneous rock that is made up of primarily quartz and feldspar. It is formed by the cooling and solidification of magma (molten rock that is underground). This rock contains the natural stone that makes up countertops and other surfaces. Our Haverhill Granite from Brazil is a durable polished slab granite of whites and gray with medium variation. It blends in well with a dark color scheme. Vail White Granite features a Dalmatian-Esque look, with onyx and graphite overlaying a pale, pearly backdrop and adds the perfect touch for a classical sense of style.
Quartz is a manufactured material, therefore it does not have the imperfections sometimes found in natural stone. This quality makes it easy to clean with a simple wipe down. Also, the resin in the mix creates a non-porous surface that resists stains and microbial growth. Granite is a very easy surface to clean as well. Use a mix of warm water and mild dish soap for everyday cleaning, following up with a microfiber towel to shine up the stone. Avoid abrasive or acidic cleaners, which can strip the sealer and etch the stone. Whether you upgrade to quartz or granite for your new countertops, you will have a low-maintenance surface that will last for years.
