Solid as a Rock
Sarah Warburton hings come and go pretty quickly these days and it can be hard to find something that stands the test of time. We’ve found a family owned and operated store that’s been in our community for over twenty years...and the products it sells are one hundred percent rock solid. “When my wife Renee and I opened the doors at All About Carpet,” says Bob McKelvey, “our son Shaun was in kindergarten...and now he’s twenty-six years old. I’m proud to say he’s learning this business inside and out.” What better way to learn a business than literally growing up in it? Shaun says, “I’ve been working for my dad just about my whole life...but for the last six years, it’s been official. I started out in the service and restoration side of the business, but now I’m working in the showroom and attending trade shows. That’s where I found a great new
product by Cosentino.” You don’t have to pull on your hiking boots and apply sunscreen to enjoy nature. A new granite countertop gives that great outdoors feeling right at home...with the durability you need in the busiest room in your house. After all, Mother Nature put in some serious time getting these stones ready. SenSa granite is maintenancefree, premium natural granite brought to you by Cosentino, a world leader in the natural stone industry for over eighty years. Every SenSa Granite slab has SenGuard technology applied in Cosentino’s modern fabrication facilities. This SenGuard protection penetrates into the granite surface and is anchored to the stone, allowing Cosentino to offer an industry leading 15-year warranty against staining. Go ahead and clean your counters...SenSa can stand up to the use of typical household cleaning chemicals. Not only that, but Sensa with SenGuard is safe for your kitchen and is certified by the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute. Think about the wonders of the natural world… they’d be nothing without the warmth and beauty of stone. From the shale and sandstone of the Grand Canyon to the granite of the Grand Tetons to the limestone of our very own Natural Bridge Caverns, each stone has its own unique look. Why not bring that unique beauty into your own home?

Each slab of granite is one-of-a-kind and carefully quarried by Cosentino using stateof-the-art equipment to provide the highest quality stone. You will find that SenSa Granite offers an array of colors to match any decor or project. “You might be surprised to learn,” says Shaun, “that granite is just about the same price as synthetic stone. When you’re updating your kitchen, choosing granite gives you added value without a lot of added cost...and just like All About Carpet, it really stands the test of time. I’d also like to say Happy Father’s Day to my dad. Thanks for teaching me how be a good guy in life and in business!” All About Carpet and Floors 281-265-3700 3145 Highway 6 South (next to Shipley’s) www.allaboutcarpet.com
