Silestone

Silestone

Proud to now offer engineered stone Silestone. Creating a surface that is stronger, more consistent and easier to care for than stone and with the built in Microban.

Microban protection continuously fights the growth of microbes that can cause stains and odors. Microban protection makes your Silestone counter tops easier to clean and keeps them cleaner between cleanings.

Silestone offers a sophisticated elegance and timeless beauty. The natural quartz in Silestone delivers distinctive depth, brilliant clarity, glimmering radiance and a cool, solid feel unique to natural stone.

Silestone can be used in virtually any indoor surfacing application in kitchens, bathrooms and floors, including: counter tops, island tops, vanities, tub and shower surrounds, back splashes, walls, wet bars, tabletops, desktops, fireplace surrounds and more.

The quartz in Silestone makes it naturally scratch-resistant. Only three other natural minerals – diamond, sapphire and topaz – are harder than quartz. Quartz is a seven on Mohs Hardness Scale (diamond is a 10).

So, while a careless slip of the knife will scratch most other counter tops such as laminates and solid surfaces, it won’t leave a mark on Silestone. Although Silestone is durable, it is not scratch-proof; it could be damaged with excessive force or pressure.

Unlike solid surfaces and laminates, Silestone is scorch-resistant. It will withstand limited exposure to heat without burning or scorching. The fire of a lit match will not mar Silestone. However, as advised by crock pot and electric skillet manufacturers, do not place these items directly on any counter top. Always use trivets when placing hot items on any natural stone or quartz surface to avoid thermal shock. Because it is non-porous, Silestone does not need to be sealed. Granite, marble and limestone, on the other hand, must be sealed on installation and resealed regularly to prevent staining. Silestone is a maintenance-free star compared to solid surfaces that may require rigorous maintenance to clean up tough stains, scratches and scorch marks.

Uses:

It is ideal for kitchen counter tops, island tops, vanities, tub and shower surrounds, back splashes, walls, wet bars, tabletops, desktops, fireplace surrounds and more.
