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.
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.
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
Of course, no countertop is completely invulnerable, which is why it’d be a good idea to know how to care for a Silestone countertop. Here are some basic tips
- Cover your countertop with protective material before placing hot cookware on top of it. Silestone doesn’t react well with heat, although this is true for most countertop materials
- Only hire an experienced contractor to install a Silestone. Even a material as durable as Silestone can be damaged if it isn’t installed properly. We recommend scheduling to meet with one of our sales team members at Jackson Stoneworks.
Silestone quartz countertops add a unique elegance to kitchen spaces. These countertops are often offered in various textures and patterns to create the desired appearance.
It is important to use the services of an experienced professional silestone quartz installer. Although this material is durable, it may be damaged if the installation work is not done properly.
