Relatively new to the quartz countertop market, Vadara Quartz says they “capture the essence of nature’s most beautiful places in artisan, handcrafted quartz — transforming your interior into a space filled with the same breathtaking beauty your surface was inspired by.”
What are Vadara Quartz Surfaces?
Vadara is a natural, quartz surfacing product that can be used on interiors for countertops, vanities, wet bars, showers, etc. Like Silestone, Vadara is natural quartz, one of the hardest and more common minerals on Earth. Vadara includes other raw materials to improve its durability and design possibilities. Again, like Silestone Quartz, Vadara is resistant to scratching, staining and impact.
Vadara Quartz vs Granite or Marble
Vadara countertops can have the natural look and feel of granite, marble, or other quarried stones, but Vadara has more strength and durability. It is nonporous and will not absorb food and liquids like granite does. Unlike granite, Vadara doesn’t require a sealer. And marble is a softer stone and therefore stains and scratches appear more easily on the surface.
Seamless Vadara Quartz Countertops
Like most other slabs, Vadara is a natural stone product that does require seams for any application longer than 126″ or wider than 63″. These seams are visible, but generally less noticeable than seams found using granite.
Vadara Quartz Warranty for Countertop Surfaces
Vadara offers a lifetime warranty with specific parameters and limitations. For instance Vadara installed outdoors is not covered by the warranty.
