There are some other quartz brands available. Some of these we have experimented with in the past. Our experience and historical use have proven to us that the majority of quartz products imported from China, for example, are of a low grade where it is almost impossible to get the facing edge of the material to take a polish. It would not be wise if you choose a quartz brand other than those detailed below from a.n.other producer. With these poor quality materials, chemicals are often applied by an unethical stone mason to the leading edge. This will make the product appear as if it's polished. Over a period of time, this will wear off leaving an unpolished face edge and sometimes much worse with scratches and lines that were previously invisible. These low grade products really should be avoided, especially when you take into consideration that they will only change a quotation by a nominal amount. Consider this, if you select a dirt cheap quartz option, you will in the main, just be choosing quartz sheets where the quartzite content has been reduced for fabricators to offer low prices or worse still for the fabricator to make greater profits. The quartzite reduction decreases the materials level of durability. This renders it considerably easy to scrape and is likely to have a dull finish. Apply some common sense, if cheaper, top grade products were available they would already be part of our product offering. Perhaps there is a reason why you cannot see them amongst our product range!
