Quartz Surfaces: Zodiaq, Cambria and Silestone Worktops and Countertops

Quartz delivers a great natural look to any kitchen. It is highly durable being resistant to scratches, stains and heat. However this flexibility comes at a price and you can sometimes encounter prices up to 10% higher than that of granite. Quartz surfaces are hygienic because the material is non-porous and so bacteria and mould have nowhere to hide. Three brands to note of are Zodiaq, Cambria and Silestone. Zodiaq comes in 26 colors and has a 10-year warranty. Cambria is made in the USA and is available in 34 colors which are all the same price. Silestone is made by the Spanish company Consentino and is available in 46 colors.

 

Advantages Disadvantages
Scratch resistant. Expensive (about 10% more than granite).
Stain resistant. Set on backsplashes only.
Heat Resistant.  
Looks great.  
Does not need to be resealed every few years (unlike granite).
