Quartz countertops by Silestone offer a wide variety of stylish, maintenance-free, resilient countertops. Silestone is a compound made up of 94% natural quartz – an extremely hard surface that resists acids, stains and scratches.
This is our most popular countertop choice. Here are a few reasons why:
The natural quartz in Silestone delivers distinctive depth, brilliant clarity, glimmering radiance and a cool, solid feel unique to natural stone.
Only three other natural minerals — diamond, sapphire and topaz — are harder than quartz. So, while a careless slip of the knife will scratch most other countertops such as laminates and solid surfaces, it won't leave a mark on Silestone.
Silestone is non-porous so it resists stains from coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar and more. Unlike granite, Silestone does not need to be sealed to keep its lustrous shine.
Unlike solid surfaces and laminates, Silestone is scorch-resistant. It will withstand limited exposure to heat without burning or scorching.
Silestone has four times the flexural strength of granite, making it less susceptible to chipping and cracking during transportation and installation.
Because it is non-porous, Silestone does not need to be sealed. Granite, marble and limestone, on the other hand, must be sealed on installation and resealed regularly to prevent staining.
