Engineered stone is also referred to as quartz surfaces; fabricated from mostly natural quartz – one of nature’s hardest and most common minerals. Made from 90 – 94% ground quartz and 6 -10% resin & pigment combined into durable and nonporous surfaces. The beauty and elegance of quartz surfacing will last for years.
Available in an array of attractive colors, quartz countertops are easy to care for – no sealing, buffing or polishing needed. And because quartz surfacing is non-porous, it is stain resistant and reduces the potential for bacterial growth, mold and mildew. Unlike stone, engineered quartz allows for a wide scope of edging options and other design potential because of it’s flexibility.
Quartz can be used for a variety of larger surfaces such as kitchen islands and shower interiors with ease, since it doesn’t require mechanical fastening and can be held in place with epoxy and glue.
Possessing the most desirable qualities of laminate and stone, while offering it’s own distinct personality, quartz countertops have become the front runner in status and style.
