THE BENEFITS OF ENGINEERED STONE COUNTERTOPS

This material is often referred to in the industry as quartz, but the name engineered stone gives you a better idea of what it is.

Unlike natural stone countertops that are cut from pure granite, marble or sandstone, engineered stone counters are made from quartz crystals held together with a resin binder. They have a similar appearance to natural stone, but they possess benefits not available with natural materials. Let’s take a look at the advantages of engineered stone countertops.

Engineered Stone Countertops are Very Attractive

The quartz material is compressed into slabs that have similar color and texture to natural granite and slate. One difference you’ll notice is that the color is more uniform than the variations in hue you’ll find in most slabs of natural stone.

While those who appreciate the character of natural stone may view this as a disadvantage, the benefit is that the engineered stone used throughout your kitchen will match perfectly.

Colors available for engineered stone kitchen counters include earth tones across the entire spectrum, rose, grays and more. Most of the color comes from the natural color in the quartz, though colorants can be added to achieve the desired tone.

Engineered Stone Counters Wear Very Well

The finished material is very hard – nearly as hard as granite.  The surfaces are resistant to scratches and cuts, though it’s still recommended you use a cutting board on top of them.

Surfaces Won’t Stain easily.

Engineered countertops stand up to oil, wine, juice and other substances very well.
