Engineered stone is a composite material of crushed stone and polymer resin. Usually made of quartz, engineered stone has the beauty and elegance of natural stone but is much stronger. It resists chips, scratches, crack, heat, and stains. Unlike granite, quartz does not require polishing or sealing. Engineered stone offers an almost unlimited array of color and pattern choices. And unlike natural stone, what you see in the catalog is what you get! Its non-porous surface makes it resistant to scratches and staining, and there is no need for sealants. Quartz also inhibits growth of mold and mildew as it is fortified with an antimicrobial compound during the manufacturing process. Absolute Stone Design is proud to be an authorized dealer of these engineered stone products: Cambria, CasearStone, Silestone and Zodiac.
