It’s a sultry day in early July, and Jon Xie from Rui Building Supply is a bit out of breath when he answers his phone. In the background behind him is the unmistakable sound of men laboring to move something that is very heavy.

“We have a new shipment of manufactured quartz countertops that just arrived,” Xie says with excitement. “We’re unloading them now — lots of new patterns and designs in 26, 36 and 42 inches — and they’re just gorgeous.”


Created through a process that blends ground natural quartz with a tiny bit of polymer resin to bind it, quartz countertops are quite durable. They’re nonporous and easy to keep clean and free of bacteria and mold. They resist stains beautifully, too.

“You’ll want to use trivets or pads under hot pans, though, because those might leave marks,” advises Xie.

The company always has at least a dozen selections rotating through its showroom on Sand Island Access Road. With the look of natural stone, the countertops have lovely marbling and are available in a variety of stunning shades.


“If you’re remodeling or building a new home, come check out our showroom,” Xie says invitingly. “In addition to these new countertops, we have practically everything you need for a bath or kitchen project — and so much more.”

Known islandwide for spectacular deals on cabinets and flooring, Rui also sells showers and vanities; apothecary cabinets; chrome and bronze towel racks, bars and rings; as well as sinks and basins in porcelain and glass, available in a variety of styles. There’s a great selection of LED light fixtures, both classic and contemporary. And you’ll find vinyl plank flooring in a dozen elegant shades.

Resi dents know that Rui’s showroom is packed with quality merchandise that’s reasonably priced, and also know that the small but friendly staff will help them make the most of their budgets.


“We’ll do our very best to find what you need at a price works for you,” promises Xie. “Remember, we always have sales throughout the store, and don’t be afraid to ask about special discounts!”
