Quartz worktops are made from small pieces of quartz stone and other natural minerals bound with plastic resins. This means that they have the look of real stone, but the practicality and even, flaw-free finish of a man-made surface.
Why choose Quartz?
Modern technology means quartz can mimic the look and feel of natural stone such as marble, but it’s much stronger and more durable. Whether you prefer a traditional or contemporary look, you’re sure to find a colour and pattern you love. We work with Silestone by global experts Consentino, a brand known for its quality and versatility.
As a manufactured, non-porous material quartz is resistant to heat and stains and it’s very easy to maintain – a quick wipe with a damp cloth should keep it looking as good as new. The ideal finishing touch for your new kitchen, it’s no wonder Quartz is now one of the most popular worktop choices we offer.
Quartz offers design versatility, functionality and durability for your home or workplace.

What are the benefits of Silestone quartz?
Quartz is non-porous, tough, heat and stain resistant and comes in a wide range of colour and design options to mimic the appearance of natural stone. It’s resistant to the buildup of mould and bacteria, making it hygenic and easy to maintain. If you love the look of natural stone but want the practicality of a modern material, then quartz is for you. Silestone by Cosentino is a flagship brand popular all over the world for its durability and versatility, and it’s backed by a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Does Silestone quartz stain easily?
As it’s non-porous, quartz is very resistant to staining. Spills from lemon juice, wine or vinegar which could damage other surfaces will simply wipe up. For more stubborn stains, a little work with a Scotch-Brite™ pad and some gentle cleaner is all that’s needed to keep it sparkling.
Can Silestone quartz be repaired if scratched or damaged?
Quartz is very hard to damage – but not impossible! Repairing quartz is a job for the experts, so call our specialist team for advice.
Can I request a Silestone quartz colour sample?
Yes you can! With such a wide choice of colour and design, it’s important to make the right decision. Please email us to request your samples. We may also have larger samples available to view at our Manchester workshop, please telephone to make an appointment.
How long does it take to install a Silestone quartz worktop?
Once we have completed your onsite consultation and all aspects of the design have been agreed, we’ll manufacture your worktop. The lead time for manufacture can vary a little at busy times so we’ll discuss this with you when you order. Once your order is ready, we can normally complete an average installation within a week.
What’s the difference between Silestone quartz and granite?
While granite is a natural product, quartz is engineered. While granite is sourced from quarries, quartz is made from a variety of natural materials including quartz, stone and glass. These ingredients are mixed with plastic resin to bond them together. The result can look almost identical to granite but is entirely manmade.
