Benefits About Engineered Stone Countertops in Houston
A few things about quartz material.
- Quartz counter tops are easy to maintain. No sealers or waxes are needed so cleaning is easy with soap and water.
- Man-made quartz is non porous (resistant to scratches and stains from acid agents) non toxic and non allergic.
- Quartz counters are hard, tough and resistant to shock.
- The engineered quartz is malleable and so can be manufactured into large pieces with fewer joints.
- The only issue being the resins used in manufacturing quartz are not heat tolerant and countertops can be marked with intense heat, so use trivets. Dark honed color finishes can also show fingerprints.
Installation of Quartz Counter Tops
Our process is simple. Call us with a drawing in mind and tell us the approximate measurements that you have. We can give you an estimate over the phone and organize a formal quote by coming to see you and assessing your needs. We can discuss removing old countertops, organizing electrical or plumbing connections, show you sample finishes and thicknesses of different counters which match the décor or the look and feel that you desire.
We then require a deposit to template the project. New cooktops or sinks must be present at the time of templating.
After templating we double check the stone finish needed and require the remaining balance be paid for the countertop to be fabricated. Once the countertop is cut it is installed at your convenience. Depending on demand, installation usually takes place up to 5 days after fabrication.
Quartz countertops cost varies depending on the size of the project.
