Venastone is a leading manufacturer and distributor of quartz (engineered stone) surfaces, specializing in kitchen countertops and bathroom (vanity) countertops. Engineered stone has become a popular choice for countertops among homeowners, also known as quartz, it has a similar aesthetic beauty as natural marble, one of the most beautiful and high-end materials in the world, without any of the hassles.
Quartz is comprised of crushed stones which have been bound together with resin. It’s widely recognized for its rich and luxurious contemporary appearance, and as a manufactured product it’s available in a much wider array of colors that can be found in natural stones like granite and marble. Additionally, quartz won’t crack or chip as easily, and it doesn’t feel cold and hard to the touch, which is how many people describe some natural stone surfaces.
Quartz is also non-porous, which means it resists staining far better than natural stone materials which require regular sealing. Quartz’s solid surface doesn’t allow for dirt or bacteria either, and it’s easy to thoroughly clean with just soap and water. This is a huge benefit especially to families with small children. Consumer Reports compared quartz-based products and sealed granite and reported no significant difference in durability. However, quartz is not as heat resistant as some natural stones so caution should be taken with hot cookware in the kitchen and hot hair tools such as hair dryers in the bathroom.
Engineered stone products manufactured to resemble marble, will give the homeowner the luxurious look of marble, coupled with the durability of a natural stone like granite. For consumers who consider the environmental impact of the materials, choosing quartz is a superior selection. Engineered stone is a great mechanism by which to recycle natural stone, thereby protecting important natural resources.
