Corian Quartz: Calcatta Natura
Quartz Countertop Near Me
Quartz countertop surfacing materials include Cambria, Pental, Silestone, Caesarstone, Zodiaq, Hanstone, Corian Quartz and Viatera. The majority of quartz countertop surfacing materials are approximately 93 percent pure quartz crystals with no flaws in them.
Quartz is incredibly durable and scratch resistant since it is one of the most durable minerals. Quartz is ideal for your house because it is custom fitted to your exact requirements and requires little upkeep.
Options – Choose from many options that make your countertop truly custom:
- Finish– Polish or Honed
- Edge Profiles
- Splash – Set-on or Tile
- Sink Type – Top Mount, Undermount and Farmhouse
Stain Resistance – Quartz is a non-porous material that combines natural materials to create a virtually maintenance-free product. Quartz’s nonstick, smooth surface repels even the most persistent stains and retains its gleam for many years without the need for sealants or waxes.
Heat Resistance – Quartz is heat resistant. It is not, however, heatproof. We do not recommend placing any extremely hot cookware directly on a countertop. Temperatures may rise too rapidly, causing damage. A heated pad or trivet is advised.
Cutting and Abrasion – Quartz can take a lot of abuse because of its high content of naturally hard crystals, which allows it to resist many scratches on your countertop. Although we don’t recommend using quartz as a cutting surface, this material is durable against cutting and abrasion.
Impact – Quartz can withstand impact, but if a hard impact occurs, edges might chip.
Food Safe – Quartz surfacing material, like granite, has been tested and certified by NSF International for use as a food preparation surface. Quartz is non-porous, so cleaning it is simple and prevents food and moisture from getting inside its surface – the primary source of bacteria growth.
