The Look of Granite, Durability of Quartz

I love Quartz!  It is my favorite product to use for tops in a kitchen for several reasons. Those being, heat resistance, scratch resistance and of course, stain resistance.  Some of my clients object to the look of Quartz because it has a flat and very consistent grain (another advantage in many cases), and does not have the movement and veining of natural stone.  But wait….   after a visit from the Cambria Rep today, it seems the innovators of quartz have managed to replicate natural veining.  Some of the new colors look so much like natural stone, that it is hard for ME to tell the difference.  I also hear that Silestone is also following with an upcoming release of new, more natural looking colors.

This is great news for designers wishing to use the durability of quartz, while retaining the look of natural stone.
