Quartz countertops Montreal, Laval and Laurentides

Quartz is the most common material on the continental crust. Quartz countertops are a man-made surface combining natural quartz mixed with a binding resin and colored dyes that are perfect for your kitchen and bathroom. This process forms a very hard and durable surface that is similar to granite in look, feel and performance. Since it technically isn’t 100% stone, it is often referred to as “engineered” quartz or composite stone. However, this is definitely not a synthetic countertop. In fact, quartz is the hardest non-precious stone that can be found in the earth's surface.

Granite au Sommet only offer quartz of top quality from leading quartz manufacturers:  Silestone (25 years residential warranty), Caesarstone (lifetime warranty), Santa Margherita, Diresco. All of them are certified NSF 51 and Greenguard

Characteristics of Quartz Counter Tops:

  • Maintenance-free, Non-Porous stone. Daily maintenance is warm water & soft cloth.

  • Some quartz has an anti-bacterial agent added (Silestone by Consentino).

  • Easily cleaned. (Warm water & a paper towel/soft cloth)

  • Quartz comes in various designs, but unlike granite - which has natural variations - the patterns of quartz are fixed. What you see is exactly what you get!

  • Colors tend toward a natural palette and choice usually depends on the cabinets.
