Home / FAQ’s
The cost of your new worktop from Quality Quartz Surfaces will depend on the type of material you choose, size and specification. Tell us what you are looking for and how much you want to spend and we will come up with several options from which to choose. Alternatively, email us the layout plan.
We have a worktop to suit every type of budget. Speak to one of our team and discuss what you are looking for. They will quickly identify the best options.
Granite is a natural stone produced whilst quartz is manufactured. Granite has to be sealed to protect the surface. Quartz comes ready to use and doesn’t need to be sealed.
Although fabricated, quartz worktops are predominantly made of a tough natural material that won’t scratch or stain. Marble is a natural stone and is much softer. It looks beautiful and will need to be sealed for protection.
These two materials have much in common with both being man-made and engineered from natural components. The difference is that Dekton does not have added resins or colours.
Dekton is a type of ceramic. It comes in a stunning array of colours and patterns and is made by mixing glass, porcelain and quartz.
Whilst Dekton is manufactured from engineered stone, granite is a natural product. Dekton is extremely compact, making it tough without pores. This makes it heat, stain and scratch resistant. Dekton does not have to be sealed, whilst granite does, being porous. Sealers have to be applied to granite regularly or it will stain.
Ceramic is fabricated using 100% raw materials to make it durable and give various designs. Granite is a natural product but not as hard as ceramic which is heat resistant and non-porous. Granite looks beautiful but the surface does have to be sealed for protection. The colours and designs of granite are produced organically.
This will depend predominantly upon your budget and how the kitchen is used. Some materials are tougher and more robust than others are. Natural products like granite have to be sealed for protection from staining. All of the worktops provided by Quality Quartz Surfaces are perfect for kitchen use. We can help you choose between colours, styles and prices. Each worktop material has different properties.
Most worktops clean easily with warm soapy water. Do not use harsh chemicals or bleach. This is particularly relevant when you have a natural stone surface, such as granite. Our team can advise on cleaning.
