Natural & Engineered Stone
Quartz or engineered stone is a man made product that is produced by many manufactures such as DuPont Zodiaq, Hanstone, Cambria, LG Viatera, Silestone, and Ceaserstone.
Quartz Surface is a blend of 93% quartz crystals with a polymer that adds color and strength. The polymer makes the surface non-porous avoiding the requirement for sealing. Quartz surface is exceptionally hard and has excellent stain, chemical and heat resistance. It is fabricated and handled just like Natural Stones (Granites) and Marble slab material and fabricated and installed similarly.
The pattern is very consistent when compared to natural stone which allows selection to be made from a sample rather than having to select the actual slab. As with solid surface countertops, the materials are prefabricated and installed by professionals.
