Engineered stone surfaces are a modern alternative to classic marble and granite, offering durability and affordability. Engineered stone is low maintenance, and because this material is non-porous, it will never need sealing or waxing as some natural stones require.
Engineered stone, also known as reconstituted stone, is manufactured from a mix of stone aggregate chips (most commonly quartz or granite), mineral fillers, a resin binder and additives.
We offer the following brands of engineered stone:
Benefits of Using Engineered Stone
Engineered stone products are man made, therefore while being similar in appearance and texture to natural stone, the colours and particulates within the stone are much more uniform. A wide range of colours and patterns are available in engineered stone which aren’t necessarily achievable or affordable in a natural stone.
The finished engineered stone material offers an extremely hard surface which is highly resistant to damage. It is also non porous, so stains cannot penetrate the surface and it is easy to keep clean.
If you love the look of natural stone but want something that is more cost effective and easier to maintain engineered stone is a fantastic alternative.
