Replacing a kitchen countertop can drastically change the look of your kitchen and it can be a relatively inexpensive part of the total kitchen remodel job. Here are a few things to know about 3 of the more popular countertop materials KLM Builders installs.
The most popular & sought after type of countertop choice today is granite. Its popularity is driven by the natural look and characteristics that only Mother Nature can create. Each slab is unique, hard, durable and scratch-resistant. And with today’s latest innovation from Consentino®, granite is now maintenance-free & 100% stain resistant. SenSa® granite is maintenance-free, premium natural granite brought to you by Cosentino®, a world leader in the natural stone industry for over eighty years. SenSa® granite is treated with a revolutionary stain protection treatment called SenGuard and comes with a 15-year stain warranty.
Because of these latest advancements, the premium quality stone and the 15 year warranty, KLM Builders only uses Sensa® granite by Consentino®.
Quartz is one of the hardest substances on earth and is practically maintenance-free. It doesn't need to be sealed like many other stone countertops and is extremely durable.
Quartz countertops are man-made engineered stone countertops created by combining ground quartz with resins, polymers, and pigments, forming a very hard granite-like surface. The appearance depends on how the quartz is ground: coarsely ground quartz produces a flecked appearance, while finely ground quartz produces a smooth look.
Silestone® is the world's leading producer of quartz surfaces designed for high-quality kitchens and bathrooms. It’s composed of 94% natural quartz, and is the first and only quartz countertop with Bacteriostatic Protection, giving it unique features. Silestone® is also the only brand that offers a certified warranty, in writing. Only a global leader could once again draw ahead of the pack and offer a genuine 15-year transferable warranty for Silestone®. When it comes to quartz surfaces, KLM Builders only offers Silestone®.
Corian® is created through an advanced method for blending natural minerals with pure acrylic resin to create an ideal surface for living. These countertops offer more than a hundred rich colors and visual textures to select from. The color and pattern are consistent throughout, and cannot wear away. It can also be cut or seamed to any size or shape.
Corian®’s non-porous surface resists stains because liquids cannot penetrate and leave their permanent mark on your kitchen counter. And because of its non-porous surface, bacteria and mold have no place to grow.
