Quartz is one of the most common minerals found on earth. It is known for its durability and extreme resistance to chemical weathering of all kinds. these worktops are created by using  about 93% crushed quartz crystals fused together using 7% poly-resin materials. These substances are combined under pressure to create a uniquely solid engineered stone. When quartz is used this way, it results in one of the hardest and durable surfaces available for counters.

Kitchen Quartz is often confused with other worktops material, such as corian or natural stone. For examples, Quartzite is a natural stone that is quarried from the Earth curst much the same way as granite or marble. Quartzite slabs are 100% natural stone. Quartz countertops are manufactured in a factory, hence the term engineered stone.

Once we are ready to make your quartz countertops purchase decision for your project, a trained technician visits your site to take the precise measurements of countertops. The digital templating  method  we use ensures that human errors are avoided and measurements are accurate. Customers can see a computer model (CAD Drawing) of their countertops right after the templating process and can suggest modifications or changes. Accurate measurement results in perfectly installed kitchen countertops.

The drawings and specifications of your job are then reviewed by our production manager to make sure they are complete. A special digital camera installed over our  CNC Bridge saw takes the picture of the quartz slab placed on the saw table and displays the photo on the operating monitor of the CNC Saw. Then the kitchen drawing is overlaid over the slab picture. This aids in the perfect location of the seams (joints) and also aids in eliminating the defects in the stone slab. Once the layout is done, the slab is cut automatically resulting in accurate dimensions.

On installation day, This visit generally takes a little bit longer than the previous one.  Depending on the complexity of the installation it can take between 1 and 3 hours per kitchen.  Please make sure that the cabinets that will hold the sink and cook top are empty.  Also the top drawers of the base cabinets need to be emptied as well. In spite of all our diligent efforts, there is a possibility of some  dust escaping.We advise our customers to cover all the valuable belongings like furniture, paintings etc.  Our installation team will clean all of the debris created during the install.  However, sometimes you may still require a more thorough cleaning after the granite is installed.
