5 reasons we’re mad for quartz

Despite being known as Surrey Marble and Granite, we work with, stock and supply a wide range of natural and engineered stones including limestone, Silestone, Arena Stone and Compac quartz. Quartz-based stones are a big trend at the moment, and we’re pleased to be working with some of the top brands in the business. Below are just a few of the reasons we’re mad for quartz worktops right now.

1. The colours!

As expert stone workers, we get called on to craft statement pieces for homes and businesses across Surrey and beyond. We – and our clients – love the range of colours that engineered quartz stones offer. You can find almost any shade in real quartz stone, from muted pebble browns, granite or slate grey worktops and marble whites through to egg yolk yellow, sky blue and fire engine red.

2. It exceeds expectations

Many of the worries people have about using stone in their home or business are swept away by engineered stones like Caesarstone or Compac Quartz. These stones are easy to clean, food safe, stainproof and waterproof. They’re also less likely to be damaged by harsh cleaning products than natural stones which is great for areas which need to be thoroughly cleaned, such as swimming pools, spa treatment rooms, bathrooms and kitchens. (Please note: it’s always important to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines regarding cleaning products as some chemicals may cause pitting or discolouration on stone.)

3. It’s tough enough for anything

Quartz is one of the toughest materials on the planet. Engineered stones like Compac Quartz are made from 95-97% quartz with a small amount of resin bonding. Like the stone they’re made from, quartz worktops and floors are hard to damage, difficult to stain, waterproof, and durable. Quartz, when found in nature, has often been in place for hundreds of thousands of years. We imagine your grandkids will want to redecorate well before that though!

4. We can create amazing things with it

Processed quartz stones like Okite or Compac Quartz are shipped to us in uniform slabs which we then shape and finish. Using our industrial strength tools, we’re able to give the slabs shape and texture. This includes cutting multiple pieces to fit together to create flooring, statement bars in hotels and restaurants, or long kitchen worktops for family homes. We can also add detailing, such as corner and edge details, draining boards and spaces for sinks, hobs and other items. More creative requests can be handled, too.

5. It’s affordable

Obviously different individual stones fall at different price points, and we’re not going to say that if you can afford Compac Quartz you definitely can’t afford marble or granite, but we are pleased that the affordability of quartz has opened up stone worktops and flooring to many more businesses and families. As expert stone workers, we’re proud of the work we do and it’s a joy to be able to help people create the interiors (and exteriors!) they’ve been dreaming of. With its combination of versatility and durability, quartz does just that.
