Q. Can You Tell Me More about Laminate?

A. Laminate is ideal for residential and commercial surfaces such as bar tops, vanities, islands, countertops and desks. It is available in a range of designs and at affordable pricing. However, laminate is not recommended for outdoors, high moisture areas or fireplaces.

Q. What Is Quartz?

A. It is a man-made stone that offers durability and beauty. You can use it in your kitchens, bathrooms, walls, backsplash, reception desks, indoor applications and even flooring. It is widely used because it is less porous, more durable than granite, stain-resistant, maintenance-free and highly scratch resistant. You must avoid electric skillets or crock pots directly on the surface to avoid thermal shock.

Q. Why Should You Choose Dekton?

A. Dekton comes with a range of technologies in elegant designs and textures. It is guaranteed for 25 years and is resistant to scratches, stains, fire, heat, abrasion, freezing and mechanical. This is why it is preferred over other surfaces. Dekton is ideal for kitchens, wall and furniture cladding, outdoor barbeque and vanities.

Q. Can I Choose Granite for My Kitchen?

A. Granite is great for kitchens, outdoor barbeques, cottages, bar tops and vanities. While it offers exotic and unique beauty as it is a natural stone, it is also durable. It has the ability to offer textures and leather finishes. Ensure to have your granite surface sealed to prevent the stone from absorbing any liquids. Please note that these surfaces need more maintenance.
