A natural stone surface made of quartz, the 4th hardest mineral in nature, Silestone countertops continue to be cutting-edge year after year. Select quartz is ground up, engineered with additional colors and materials, then molded with immense pressure to create surfaces that have a consistent look, feel, and quality.

The material has revolutionized stone surfaces with a manufacturing process that delivers products with true consistency and high quality. With an expanding and evolving color palette, the offerings from Silestone surfaces can adapt to changing needs and lifestyles that keep up with the most current trends. Fantastic color options combined with numerous textures and finishes offer a design flexibility that ranges from a single-color process for a consistent look, to a 3-dimensional process that adds depth, and on to a 5-dimensional process that creates light refraction for an amazing rich color.

Detail: What is Silestone?


Advantages of Silestone Countertops & Surfaces

Ultimate Reliability

Quartz has unparalleled durability and strength. It is made of Natural Quartz, which is the 4th hardest mineral found in nature. The only natural minerals harder than quartz are diamond, sapphire and topaz. Silestone countertops are made of a hard, dense and non-porous material that is consistent throughout its composition, making it more reliable than any other natural stone.

Antimicrobial Protection

Silestone is National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) approved and GREENGUARD-certified to be safe for the kitchen indoor environment, which makes it a cleaner and safer than other surfaces. Silestone countertops are the only surfaces made with built-in antimicrobial protection that safely fights the growth of microbes such as odor causing bacteria, mold, and mildew for the life of the product. This makes Silestone countertops and surfaces easier to clean, and they stay cleaner between cleanings.

Scratch Resistant

Common household accidents such as a dropped knife, a fallen piece of glass or errant scissors will not scratch Silestone because only materials as hard as, or harder than Silestone will scratch it. Beware: no surface is indestructible.

Stain Resistant

Because Silestone is non-porous, most spills stay on the surface and are easy to clean with soapy water or a mild household cleaners.

Heat & Scorch Resistant

Silestone Countertops and surfaces will withstand limited exposure to heat without burning or scorching. The fire of a lit match will not mar the Silestone countertop. However, as advised by crock-pot and electric skillet manufacturers, do not place these items directly on any countertop. We recommend the use of trivets when placing hot items on a Silestone surface to avoid thermal shock.

Low Maintenance

A huge advantage with Silestone is that it is easy to keep clean and maintain. It cleans with soap and water and in most cases it just needs to be wiped over with a dry cloth to remove the dirt. It never needs sealers.

The Silestone Warranty

Silestone offers a 25-Year transferable warranty on any Silestone product purchased and registered on or after January 1, 2015. To activate the warranty, purchasers must provide proof of purchase, and the warranty is valid after online registration within 6 months of purchase. After 6 months, any unregistered product will automatically have only a two year warranty, with original invoice.

Color and Depth

Silestone colors vary from subtle neutral shades to brilliant and dynamic tones. A huge selection of colors, numerous textures, and two exceptional finishes provides designers with a near-limitless number of artistic and functional possibilities.
