Why quartz is a big trend for 2018

What’s so great about quartz?

We’re called Surrey Marble and Granite, so some of our customers assume that we only work with natural stones. Not a bit of it! Processed and engineered stones are a fantastic addition to the market. Here are just a few of the reasons we love to work with quartz.

It brings a great natural material indoors

Quartz doesn’t come in large slabs that can be cut into shape. This tough material tends to form in crystal pockets, often in combination with other elements. The stone is beautiful, and has been used for jewellery for thousands of years. Today, thanks to modern engineering processes, products like Samsung Radianz Quartz bring all that natural wonder into your Surrey home.

It lets more families have stone worktops

Quartz worktops are generally cheaper than natural stone, which makes them more accessible for many families. They’re also incredibly easy to care for and very resilient, making them a highly practical choice for busy homes with pets, growing kids and enthusiastic cooks. By bringing out new stones at a range of prices, brands like Samsung Radianz Quartz let us work on more amazing projects installing dream kitchens into family homes.

It’s one of the toughest materials around

Qquartzuartz is one of the hardest natural materials, and quartz worktops can withstand almost anything daily life throws at them. Engineered stones are sealed, which makes them waterproof and non-porous so stains and spills can simply be wiped away. They’re also heat and cold resistant, so a hot cup or pan won’t leave a mark. They’re food safe and hygienic, as well as being cool enough for pastry work. In short, they’re a dream to use in the kitchen or bathroom, which explains their popularity in bars, restaurants and luxury hotels as well as family homes.

All the amazing colours

From classic marble-white to sunshine yellow, delicate greys to azure blue, engineered stone comes in an astonishing array of colours. By simply adding a tiny bit of dye to the adhesive resin that bonds the quartz particles together, engineers have created a product that is 95-99% natural stone and yet can be ordered in entirely unnatural colours.

Stunning textures

From stones that look a lot like marble and granite to midnight-black worktops that seem studded with stars, the choice seems to be endless. Brands like Samsung Radianz Quartz offer a wide range of textures for their customers to choose from, letting you select the stone that perfectly matches your home and your design ethos.

Quartz delivers the quality we demand

At Surrey Marble and Granite, we pride ourselves on providing top quality results. Our team of experienced stone workers have developed their skills working on projects from kitchens to churches, so we have a deep understanding of what stone can do, and what traits are required. The quartz brands we work with have all been selected as they provide high quality materials at a great price, giving us the tools we need to create a stunning worktop you’ll use and love for years.

Stone is the best choice, whether you’re looking at beautiful period fireplaces or modern minimalist designs. New fireplaces use stones like marble and granite for the same reasons our distant (and not so distant) ancestors did: stone is heat resistant; doesn’t catch fire; doesn’t weather or change colour due to contact with heat or fire; is easy to clean; and can withstand knocks and bumps from logs, coal buckets and other equipment. But with the wide range of stones available, from granite to quartz, which should you choose? Which part […]

Quartz kitchen worktops are engineered stones. This means that unlike marble and granite, which are quarried in large slabs and cut down, Caesarstone and other quartz brands are not found naturally. Instead, small amounts of resin are used to bind quartz particles together to make a large slab. As quartz worktops are made of at least 90% quartz, which is one of the toughest natural substances, they look, feel and handle just like stone – and they have certain advantages.
