Silestone Worktops

Silestone worktops are experiencing an amazing increase in sales. This is driven by the durability and finesse quartz gives. A great kitchen option which is increasing in interest as it offers the feel of stone without the usual maintenance generally associated with natural materials.
 
Quartz is the most hard wearing stone counter option you can obtain for a work surface. Granite is extremely tough, but as a natural material, it has variations of porosity and hardness that is built in within natural materials, such as you would expect with hardwood timbers, for example. These are not concerns that you would have to contemplate with quartz.
 
Silestone is a mixture made up of more than 90% natural quartz, which makes it exceedingly sturdy and practical. It is a fantastic choice for kitchen countertop, bathrooms, staircases, floors and wall cladding. Additionally, it comes in a range of different tones of quartz colour, offering a multitude of finish options from a kitchen top to a total project for a range of furniture. Silestone is an investment for the future, and because of its strength,  Silestone is going to be a perfect choice for your project.
 
The most common mineral on the planet, quartz (Silicon Dioxide), offering a vast availability of raw resources to be utilised by implementing recent developments within science to create quartz as a human made stone option.
 
The core material is developed to be combined with adhesives and dyes to create  Silestone  worktops. The big bonus of this material, more so than others is the reality, as is human created the colour is laboratory controlled so you are guaranteed of colour exactness regardless of how many collective worktops will be required to complete your refurbishment works.
 
If you want a better idea for how this flexible material would be suitable your particular works, a good initial commencement would be to look through our gallery below highlighting completed works in a massive range of tones. Some of the ranges are available with different textures such as antique finish. Simply click on the image underneath for finish options to have a see at what is available. When using products, the various texture finishes, are an additional service that we can undertake for you, this is not an option with quartz. By changing the counter finish of quartz, would certainly null and void the manufacturers warranty. On this basis, the texture alterations are those carried out by the original producer. Silestone & Compac is the only manufacturers that offer different surface finishing.
 
Now you have chosen hue, brand name and finishing variables the next step will be the fabrication. This is in relation to what can be undertaken with the material for openings, variables of edging and so on. Simply click on the picture for fabrication options underneath and you will obtain an understanding of this.
 
With the current drive in interest for this material, multiple producers are now represented within Great Britain offering a huge range of over 600 colours. The main producers for quartz slabs are as detailed below. Just click on one of the icons below to read more about the brand in question and choices available. A Silestone worktop is one of the best brands within the UK.
 
There are a few alternative quartz products on offer. Some of which we have fabricated in the past. History and experience has proven to us that a high percentage of quartz slabs imported from the Far East, for example, are of a low grade where it is virtually beyond capabilities to get the leading face edge of the material to be polished. Be prudent if you choose a quartz product other than those detailed below from an alternative producer. With these poor quality materials, chemicals are applied by the stone mason to the face edge, to make the product appear as if it has been polished. In a short duration of time, this will wear off leaving an unpolished edge and occasionally far worse with scrapes and lines that were previously invisible. These low grade materials should be avoided at all costs, especially when you note that these products will only alter a quotation by a nominal amount. Consider this, if you choose a really cheap quartz material, you will in the main, simply be choosing quartz slabs where the quartzite content has been decreased for fabricators to offer low prices or worse still for the stone mason to retain more money. The quartzite reduction decreases the products level of durability. This renders it considerably easy to scrape and is likely to have a matt finish. To put this in straightforward, common sense, if cheaper, good quality products were available we would use them. It might well be there is a reason why you cannot see them amongst our product range!
 
To obtain the most competitive quotation around for your quartz counters you should explore our range of most popular colours. These tones offer a colour suitable for virtually any kitchen with in excess of 60 variables. The striking disparity between the most popular colours and the brand name options is just that the most popular options are materials that we fabricate each and every day. This translates to that if your work requires the use of a partial sheet, you will only be liable for what is being really made use of and the remaining materials will be used for another customer. If you decide upon a specific brand, you will be quoted for all of the materials purchased to undertake your project as we will not be make use of the remaining products as we do not use these options every day. An additional reason of using the most popular colour options is that these options are available to undertake an immediate online quote.
