When remodeling the kitchen in their early 20th century, American Four-Square home, Tim & Vera Forster opted for striking White Macaubas Quartzite. The couple wanted stone that was highly durable and which would also be a centerpiece in the room’s cool neutrals. Now, thanks to Atlantic Granite & Marble, they have what Tim Forster refers to as “a piece of art.”

“We immediately knew we were in the hands of experts,” said the Forsters. “The professionals at Atlantic Granite & Marble guided us while still giving us flexible options and room to decide. We were so impressed with the knowledgeable lead installer who shared what to do, what not to do and why.” The Forsters also pointed out how skillfully the veining continues in the same pieces of stone as it flows from the countertops to the surrounding backsplash. Second-generation owner, Kathy Frank, credits much of her passion for the industry to her father,    Salvatore “Sam” Scarlata, who came to the United States from Italy in search of better opportunities. Scarlata worked hard installing ceramic tiles in Rochester, New York, until he was at last able to open Rochester’s first natural stone business, Atlantic Granite & Marble. Today, Kathy, her husband Doug and her sister in law Cathy Scarlata, continue to operate Upstate New York's premier supplier of natural stone on her father's foundation of quality & excellence.
