Durable, High Quality Quartz Kitchen Worktops
We really enjoy working with Quartz as much as our customers enjoy the end product. Quartz Kitchen Worktops are a luxury product at a reasonable price which are not only extremely durable but very easy to maintain. With the wide variety of colours, finishes and sizes on offer it is no wonder then why so many of our clients choose to opt for this uncompromising stone for their homes and business.
As with Granite, Quartz kitchen worktops are available in 30mm, 20mm and 12mm thickness. Quartz kitchen worktops can look great in a modern or traditional setting, a more streamlined look is achieved with a 20mm worktop instead of the 30mm equivalent. This can help save on cost without compromise on strength or quality. We have been at the forefront of the Quartz kitchen worktop revolution fitting our very first engineered stone in the early 2000’s. We can say now more than half of our jobs will be fabricated in Quartz. Quartz kitchen worktops in the domestic and commercial workspace found early demand from London. In the early years it was a great option for the modern kitchens fitted out in new builds due to the mostly modern colours available. However, with the advancement in technology and greater demand for more traditional granite/marble-like colors Quartz kitchen worktops are available in almost all the popular Granite and Marble styles but without any of the potential pitfalls. Quartz is also easier to fabricate and maintain. Engineered (or man-made) Quartz is tougher than Granite due to its raw composition of typically 93% natural Quartz mixed with 7% resin and colorants which help bind the particles together. You will be also glad to know that Quartz worktops are an Eco-friendly alternative to traditional natural stone worktops.
So what makes Quartz Worktops so special?
Engineered Quartz worktops are manufactured and then transported to the UK from countries across the world such as Spain, Italy, China and India. Engineered or man-made Quartz consists of 90% Natural Quartz which is a hard mineral extracted from the Earths Surface. The Quartz is then ground according to the desired finish from the very course to very fine. Polymers, resins and bonding agents are added to give strength and colour, this mixture is then fused together and compressed within high pressure industrial machinery in to block or slab form. The slabs are then heated at high temperatures in specialized ovens for the final product.
As the Quartz work-surface is an engineered stone this means it has a controlled appearance and strength making it an ideal choice for a variety of uses in high traffic areas within the home and business today.
Easy To Maintain
Man made Quartz is also very easy to maintain. Both Granite and Marble have tiny channels or “veins” between the minerals which can make it weak and porous. Granite and Marble must be sealed regularly to help safeguard against accidental spillages. Quartz has no channels or natural veining. So the finished product does not need any sealant to protect against mishaps or bacterial growth. Keeping the Quartz worktop clean is simple. A wipe over with soap and water is all that is required, there is no need for specialist anti bacterial cleaners or polishes. This is why Quartz is now the primary choice for Kitchens and Bathrooms today.
A huge benefit of choosing a Quartz surface is the consistency in colour and finish. As Granite and Marble are both 100% natural materials there is a tendency for variance in colour and pattern/veining from one slab to the next. Although this can add to the character of the stone, the unknown nature can sometimes be a deterrent. Particularly for those clients who have a strong idea for their final look and finish. Dyes are also added to the darker shades of Granite to enhance the colour of the stone and to add a level of consistency. This dye can wear off after some years causing a changing in the appearance of the work surface. Quartz is consistent in that the bonding agents are controlled giving you consistency in both colour and finish for years to come.
Customers buy safe in the knowledge that they have a material which will stand the test of time. Quartz can be used on high traffic public areas such as floors, reception counters, food counters, Kitchens and Bathrooms.
