Engineered Quartz Stone

Engineered stone (also known as quartz-stone) is a man made product comprising over 80% quartz crystals plus pigments and an epoxy resin. The individual color patterns are homogeneous and do not have the pattern variations found in natural stone. It is marketed under several brand names including Silestone, Caesarstone, Hanstone and Cambria. Engineered stone products are gaining in popularity and are sometimes preferred over granite products because engineered stone requires less maintenance.


Engineered Stone Fabrication and Installation

Quartz stone, also known as “engineered” or “man-made” stone is manufactured by a process that mixes approximately 90% of ground quartz chips and up to 10% resins that bind the quartz chips together. The end result is a super-hard, non-porous, natural stone-look countertop. There are numerous brands of Quartz in the marketplace with a large array of color and pattern options available. Quartz countertops are heat resistant but not as heat resistant as granite so trivets and hot pads should be used.
