Taking care of your natural stone can ensure that it looks great and lasts for years to come. But how you look after natural stone depends on the type of stone you have fitted.
Quartz is a natural stone that is mixed with resins and polymers. This makes it a durable and flexible material to use. As it is non-porous it does not need sealing. Typically quartz makes a great material to be used in kitchen countertops, other work surfaces, tables, dressing tables, fireplaces and bathrooms. Although it can be used almost anywhere.
Granite is a porous natural stone. That means that it can absorb and stain more easily than other natural stones. Granite will often need sealing ever so often. Our experts can recommend how frequently each piece of granite we supply should be sealed. However, not all granites will need sealing, but it is often done to prevent future staining.
Granite is one of the most heat resistant countertops on the market, so whilst it is recommended to you a heat protector, like a trivet, it is unlikely to damage the granite unless the heat is applied for a long period of time. Granite is also scratch resistant, however, it is recommended that you still use a chopping board as the granite countertop will dull your knives.
Granite the perfect stone for kitchen worktops, bathrooms, fireplaces, staircases, wall displays, shower trays and bathrooms, as well as many other uses.
