Countertops: Quartz aggregate countertops

Reviewed by:
The Old House Web
This engineered quartz surface is a popular kitchen countertop choice. And small wonder -- with the look and feel of granite or marble, the surface is more durable than these natural stones and comes in a dizzying array of colors and looks. The non-porous surface does not need to be sealed, polished or sanded, and resists stains that are normally permanent, such as wine, juice, markers andink.

Shown here is a Brick Marte countertop and backsplash.

Various edgings are available. Silestone has the weight of granite, marble, or limestone and is comparable in cost. Silestone can be used in kitchens, bathrooms, any other rooms of the house.
