FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you’re ready to make a valuable upgrade to your living space, here are some FAQ about natural stone and quartz:

  • Natural stone vs quartz

Natural stone is sourced straight from the earth. It can be found in a huge variety of unique colors and three different textures (polished, honed and leather), has good resistance, withstands high temperatures and has long durability. It has low porosity after being properly sealed which makes it ideal to be installed both indoors and outdoors.

Quartz is an industrialized stone made by combining quartz minerals with pigments and resins. Having the same marble look but maintenance and worry free is one of the main advantages of quartz as it is stain and starch resistant. Since quartz is over 90% a  manmade stone, it also allows for a greater variety of colors and style, resulting in beautiful countertops.

  • Maintenance

Natural stone requires sealing every five years to maintain its smooth look and durability.

Because quartz is fused with resin and other polymers, it does not need to be sealed regularly.
