Quartz countertops in Gretna bring the essence of natural stone to your home, minus the hassle associated with other materials. Preferred over granite by those wanting a vibrant yet classic aesthetic, quartz is a superb choice for countertops. The rising popularity of quartz countertops in Gretna is attributed to their ability to elevate the look of spaces, coupled with their ease of maintenance.
Quartz countertops are generally manufactured using crushed quartz, which typically forms about 95% of the total composition. The rest comprises binders and pigments that enhance the quartz's natural brilliance or introduce additional color. Also, to add a sparkle to the countertop, recycled glass from environmentally-friendly sources, or thin metallic flakes can be incorporated.
Our Gretna quartz countertops, thanks to the resin used, are highly resistant to stains and scratches. The inherent non-porous nature of these countertops eliminates the need for frequent resealing. In contrast, granite countertops require a protective layer at least once a year. With quartz, your kitchen preparation becomes a simple, one-time process.
At The Stone Gallery, our exquisite quartz countertops provide a plethora of patterns, flecks, and swirls, offering diverse installation possibilities to enhance any kitchen. With a range of finishes beyond just polished – including sandblasted, embossed, or honed – your Gretna quartz countertops offer unmatched versatility. Now, you can replace textured slate, glossy granite, or matte limestone with quartz!
The overall cost of quartz countertops in your home will be determined by the chosen extras, style, finishing touches, and the amount of material needed to fulfill your vision.
Quartz countertops in Gretna have an intriguing story before they grace your home. Quartz, once found in nature, is diligently extracted from the earth, ground into fine aggregate dust. This is then mixed with resin, and recycled metals or glass, as well as color enhancers. The resin is fused with the quartz under high heat to form a solid, thick slab.
Much like natural stone, quartz slabs are heavy. While the binding resin added during fabrication adds resilience, improper handling can damage the quartz slabs. Hence, it's crucial to entrust your Gretna countertop installation to seasoned professionals. Our commitment to excellence honed over generations of impeccable service to Louisiana and beyond, ensures you're thoroughly guided through the process for optimal results.
Envision a continuous, seamless surface...that's the potential of Gretna quartz countertops for your home. Even if seams are necessary for fitting or shaping, they are virtually invisible due to the binding resins used during fabrication. Expert installation professionals can craft quartz countertops to perfectly fit around any island, sink, kitchen, bathroom, floor, wall, and more!
Quartz countertops, being completely sealed, resist penetration by bacteria and viruses, ensuring the vibrancy of the quartz for years.
Unlike stone or wood, quartz doesn't require annual resealing. Simple cleaning with soap and water keeps your quartz countertops looking new. However, steer clear of abrasive pads and harsh chemicals to avoid scratching the resin.
