Choosing the best countertop for your kitchen can be a challenge. There are various options to think of, such as granite, marble, and quartz. Silestone is another excellent choice. There are many benefits to Silestone Quartz Countertops. It is made up of natural quartz crystals plus other materials, such as polyester resin that glues the quartz crystals together. Silestone also possesses antimicrobial and color agents. At Jackson Stoneworks, we offer Silestone Quartz countertops for both kitchen and bathroom applications.

What is Silestone

Silestone is made of quartz—one of the hardest natural materials—and other extremely durable raw materials, making it extremely durable. However, apart from its exceptional durability, what makes it a great choice for a countertop

Some of the key benefits of silestone quartz countertops include:

Resists Spills and Stains

Since silestone is a non-porous surface, it is highly resistant to staining from liquids such as coffee, olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, and other common products that can stain surfaces. The material’s stain-resistant properties also help keep it free from infiltration by bacteria.

Resists Scratching

The superb durability of silestone quartz makes it scratch resistant. This quality can help preserve the brand-new quality of your countertop for several years after its installation.

Resists Impact

Silestone countertops possess excellent resistance against cracking from common impacts that occur when cookware is dropped on surfaces.

Easy to Clean

Since silestone quartz is non-porous, it is also a low-maintenance material. You can clean up spills with a non-abrasive cleaner and soft cloth. Silestone quartz does not require resealing as do some other countertop materials.

Caring for Your Silestone Quartz Countertops
