Granite vs. Silestone vs. Marble
What is the difference between granite and Silestone?
Silestone is a quartz product that includes other raw materials to create an extremely durable and resilient design option. Unlike granite, Silestone doesn’t require a sealer.
What is the difference between marble and Silestone?
Marble is a softer stone and can stain and scratch more easily. Silestone countertops are made up of over 90% quartz, one of the hardest natural minerals, which makes it resistant to scratching, staining and impact.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Cleaning your quartz countertops is a breeze. Simply use a damp, non-abrasive cloth or soft sponge with a mild soap or detergent to clean the surface.
While Silestone can withstand direct contact with high temperatures for short periods of time, it is not recommended to subject your countertops to sustained contact with a heat source, nor should hot saucepans, frying pans, deep-fat fryers, etc. be placed directly atop your countertops. Use a hot pad or trivet to protect your Silestone countertops to keep them looking their best.
